PEPSICO’S SUSTAINABLE ADVANTAGE
5

Three major sustainable advantages give PepsiCo a competitive edge as we operate in the global marketplace: (1) Big, muscular brands; (2) Proven ability to innovate and create differentiated products; and (3) Powerful go-to-market systems. Making it all work are our extraordinarily talented and dedicated people. When we take these competitive advantages and invest in them with dollars generated from top-line growth and cost-saving initiatives, we sustain a value cycle for our shareholders.

6

In essence, investing in innovation fuels the building of our brands. This in turn drives top-line growth. Dollars from that top-line growth are strategically reinvested back into new products and other innovation, along with cost-savings projects. Thus, the cycle continues.

CONCEPTUAL DISCUSSION
MARKET SHARE

16

Sales figures do not necessarily indicate how a firm is performing relative to its competitors. Rather, changes in sales simply may reflect changes in the market size or changes in economic condition.

The proportion of the market that the firm is able to capture can measure the firm’s performance relative to competitors. This proportion is referred to as the firm’s market share and is calculated as follows: • Market share =firm sales/total market sales

Sales may be determined on the sales basis (sales price multiplied by volume) or on a unit basis (number of units shipped or number of customers served). While the firm’s own sales figure are readily available, total market sales are more difficult to determine. Reasons to increase market share Market share often is associated with profitability and thus many firm seek to increase their sales relative to competitors. Here are some specific reasons that a firm may seek to increase its market share.

• •

Economics of scales –higher volumes can be instrumental in developing a cost advantage. Sales growth in a stagnant industry-when the industry is not growing; the firm can grow its sales by increasing its market share.

17

• •

Reputation-market leaders have clout that they can use to their advantage. Increased bargaining power-a large player has an advantage in negotiation with suppliers and channel members.

From these drivers changing the variables of the marketing mix can increase market share.

• • • •

Product-the product attributes can be changed to provide more value to the customers, for example, by improving product quality. Price –price is another factor that may effect on the market share if it maintained in well manner. Distribution-add new distribution channels or increases the intensity of distribution in each channel. Promotion-increasing advertising expenditure can increase market share, unless competitors respond with similar increases.

DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL FUNCTION
Distribution Channel: -A set of interdependent organization involved in the
process of making a product or services available for use or consumption by the consumer or business user.

The distribution channel moves goods and services from producers to consumers. It overcomes the major time, place, and possession gaps that separate goods and services from those who would use them. Members of the marketing channel perform much key function. Some help to complete transaction:

 Information: gathering and distributing marketing research and intelligence information about actors and forces in the marketing environment needed for planning and aiding exchange.

19

 Promotion: developing and spreading persuasive communication about an offer  Contact: finding and communicating with prospective buyers.  Matching: shaping and fitting the offer to the buyer’s needs, including activities such as manufacturing, grading, assembling and packaging.  Negotiation: reaching an agreement on price and other terms of the offer so that ownership of the possession can be transferred.

Other helps to fulfill the completed transaction:  Physical distribution: Transporting and storing goods  Financing: Acquiring and using funds to cover the cost of the channel work  Risk Taking: Assuming the risks of carrying of the channel work

FINDINGS
1. During Survey it was found that M.Orange and M.Dew has insect problem. 2.Visi is being a major problem for retailers it must be taken in to consideration. 3.Advertising material was not properly allotted to retailers, even some of the retailers had 2-3 tin or light board but on the other side some of the retailers didn’t have single one. 4.Even Company official had made false promises that are not good, Even you can satisfy retailer with fake promises for short term but it is not good for long term. 5.Purity of Visi was a major problem and visi should be provided to potential customer. 6.Source of Pet (for both 500 ml & 2 ltr) was other state. 7.Rates of Authorized dealer were not matching with the rates of the small unauthorized, because of this unauthorized dealers were able to available the goods at cheaper rates. 8.There was not more concentration on selling aquafina in market; Bisleri has a strong presence in market. 9.Enough Gas was not available in the bottles of Pepsi. 10.Proper emphasis is not given to rural area.

58

“If going seems easy, it means you are going downhill”

To sustain the market share
1.Beverage companies provide refrigeration facility (Visi) to the retailers. The retailers complain that whenever their visis have any technical problem, then it takes long time until the company services the visi. This has an adverse impact on the sale of products therefore, adequate arrangements should be made to ensure that the visis are serviced in the shortest possible time and thereby reducing inconvenience caused to retailers. 2.Provide supply at time. Because Market has a Rule first come first serve. Retailers cannot wait for supply. Therefore service must be quick. 3.More schemes, gifts as these are the catalyst of market should be made available at right time. Schemes must be proper so that customer can be attracted. 4.Company should provide more Ads Material in the Form of Glow Sign Board with shop names, Banners, Wall Painting & Hoarding. 5.Customer executive should not make false promises with retailers. 6.Customer executive should visit outlets time to time. 7.Customer executives should encourage the Route agent, so that he can work with self-motivation. 8.Customer Executive not only focuse on the distributor but also on the retailers. 9.Company should provide Freeze (Visis) at Maximum outlets, so that chilled Soft Drinks Can Be Available For Customers.

59

10.Repairing of Visi must be Time to Time. 11.Blasted bottles & Leakage bottles should be replaced at time. 12.Retailer’s feedback must be timely and regularly.

To increase the share in the market.
1. 60-70% population of India still living in rural area. There is very much potential in that area. But it is still untapped. So Pepsi should focus on that one also. 2. Advertisement material should be given in rural area, for the awareness. 3. Selling is an art, so Route Agent must be taught How to sell, how to talk and how to convince the retailers. 4. A healthy Relationship should be developed by Company with retailers, as to increase the sales volume and also to develop some sorts of trust with company, which help retailers to start recommending the brand; it will certainly boost the sell and would be good for long run. 5. Quality of the product is very much important in today’s competitive scenario. Customer cannot compromise with the quality. So Quality Control Management should be very proactive. 6. Pepsi should conduct more marketing event like road shows and should go for colleges and schools. It will be really helpful to increase the sale. 7. Limca is major Threat for Pepsi, so Pepsi must give boost up Mirinda Lemon in the market so that more customer can be fetched to the product with more schemes and attractive gifts and Retailers also must
60

be enforced to buy the product it is possible when they are given attractive gifts and incentive. 8. Product innovation is key to success so companies keep on doing this.
