‡ ‡ ‡

‡ A Pre-seller generates orders in advance after activating the outlet . He also communicates the scheme and promotional offer apart from carrying out his executing an outlet responsibility ‡ Back-end activities like invoicing, delivering stocks, collecting cash & glass are carried out by others ‡ Delivery vehicles are loaded as per the orders, leading to a very high capacity utilization & negligible shortage of brands / pack to the retailer ‡ Company gets control over retailers

‡ Improved Execution ‡ Reduced manpower through better utilization of MD resources ‡ Increased vehicle utilization (90 % ) ‡ Improved Market control ‡ Ensure sell-in & sell-out roles in key markets are managed by company controlled manpower


‡ Role of salesman reduced to deliveryman ‡ Market developer will not only have to do execution and open new account but they will have to generate orders as well . Thus market developer will also act as salesman ‡ Sales executive needs to act as mentor and conduct morning and evening meetings daily ‡ ASM needs to act like an anchor

‡ ‡ ‡ 1. 2. ‡ ‡ ‡ Pre-seller can be a current µroute salesman´ or a market developer All pre-seller are hired by HCCB & paid through 3rd party Pre-seller will be responsible for : RED outlet = execution + volume Non RED outlet = volumes Depending on market pre-seller will be allocated two/three beats each with a frequency of thrice or twice per outlet Pre-Seller will cover 30 outlets in one beat using beat planning format Pre-Seller leave Pre-billed orders at the depot / distributor godown

‡ Route Restructuring ‡ Assigning Manpower ‡ Building back end support

‡ Listing all outlets on a Route on the basis of RED outlet and availability of empty glasses at the outlet ‡ Identify outlets that should be on Pre-sell beats & form geographical clusters ‡ Formulation of beats ‡ Prepare walking order route plan PJP for pre-seller for the beats assigned to him

For pre-sell we need the following : ‡ Pre-seller for generating the order and market execution. Pre-seller is either salesman or Market Developer converted to this role ‡ Drivers & helpers for supplying the orders ‡ At Depot : one person is required to take order from pre-seller and billing

‡ Logistic executive segregates the orders on an excel sheet ‡ He ensures that vehicles are loaded as per orders strictly ‡ The orders are billed in hand held computers at the depot by logistic executive ‡ Bills print-outs are given to the driver, which becomes the basis of delivery ‡ Identify and select the right mix of vehicles as per the geography and the volume

‡ Day µ-4¶ to µ-2¶ days the OJTs of pre-seller will happen ‡ Day µ-1¶ ,pre-seller to go to the market (beat 2 ) post noon and take the orders for the next day ‡ Day µ0¶ no conventional routes move in . The invoiced orders of beat 2 to be delivered & MD¶s work on beat 1 ie generates order to be delivered next day

‡ RED scores of pre-seller , before pre-sell & after pre-sell ‡ Volumes achievements & growth vs targets ‡ Productivity ie numbers of bill cut in a week vs potential


‡ Monopoly of Salesmen. ‡ Unawareness of Schemes, Discounts and Scratch coupons among Outlet Owners in the market. ‡ Supply of Products to Road side venders. ‡ Lack of Space for keeping stocks in the shops. ‡ Empties problem. ‡ Loading of stocks was not done according to order. ‡ Tracker was not filled properly.

‡ Salesman whose record are good should be promoted as Pre-Seller. ‡ Spreading awareness of recent schemes, discounts etc. in the market through MDs. ‡ For Road Side Vendors make Fat Agent. ‡ Outlets which do not have space for keeping 2 days stocks should be put on both the beats so that they get supply every day. ‡ Providing more empties in the market. ‡ Loading of stocks should be done according to the order. ‡ Tracker should be filled properly. Sales Team Leader must have an eye on his MDs by checking their trackers daily at any time.
