INTRODUCTION

Since 1993, KIOSK Information Systems has led the industry in design and manufacturing of self-service kiosks. The team is a "cradle to grave" service organization that takes full ownership in the success of customer programs - from initial solution design to manufacturing and field services. KIOSK has partnered with clients in a full complement of vertical markets, transforming self-service concepts to deployed solutions. Projects range from traditional applications like retail, order entry, and human resources to highly specialized solutions in banking, healthcare, airport security, and outdoor ticketing. With 100,000+ kiosks deployed across this broad market spectrum, KIOSK's abilities in customized design, sophisticated peripheral integration, volume manufacturing, and field services have been exercised far deeper than any industry competitor. Clients with 800 3000 unit nationwide deployments such as AT&T, Wal-Mart, Safeway, PepsiCo, Sony, HP, and TIO set the standards bar high, and KIOSK has consistently proven the ability to execute at every stage of the program life cycle. Kiosks system is used for sales processing and inventory tracking. Traditionally, kiosks were simply manned sales booths generally located in shopping centers. Today, kiosks system has become electronically-based, interactive terminals that allow users to conduct business or access the Internet. Kiosks system technology is becoming a much more common method to conduct business, increase sales, interact with customers, and even conduct internal business operations such as human resource functions. Kiosks system can be found in a wide variety of locations including city streets, shopping malls, airports, restaurants, retail stores, and non-retail business offices. Some common applications of interactive kiosks systems include ATM kiosks, Internet kiosks, store gift registries and gift card kiosks, sales and marketing kiosks, bill payment kiosks, gaming, kiosks, self check out kiosks, human resource kiosks, and e-commerce kiosks. Kiosks systems provide functionality that can also be incorporated into a self service kiosk. A point of sale system is computer-based system that allows businesses to capture8

sales data and other customer transactions. Kiosks systems are available for the smallest retail business to the largest global conglomerate.A shopping mall or outdoor center is the most common place to find merchant-manned kiosk businesses. Sometimes these small booths look like carts, reminiscent of peddlers from centuries past. The merchant pays a rental fee to the owner of the shopping center for the use of the kiosk.Customers walk by the kiosk and can easily view the items for sale. The sales associate may greet customers as they walk by and try to draw their attention. Sometimes, demonstrations of the product are held on the spot. Consumers then purchase items directly from the kiosk.

MARKET RESEARCHIntroduction:Usually it is said that if marketing would be a train, then market research would be the locomotive. In other words, market research should ideally be the starting point of any marketing exercise. Conducting any marketing exercise - be it related to pricing, promotion or distribution of a product or service, without researching the potential market is as sensible as setting out to sell sand in the Sahara Desert. Market research provides the answers to all the questions that generally occupy the minds of marketers, at every stage of the marketing process.

Growth Trends in Market ResearchIndia, fastest growing market research industry in the world, with growth rates at around 31 % (2006-07) . China is a distant second growing at 20 %. The size of the industry if of 595 crore, but the industry is growing rapidly with a lot of business coming from overseas. The business coming from overseas from overseas involves lot of outsourcing as cost advantages are enormous. The processing of data is almost 50% cheaper in India. The processing of data is almost 50% cheaper are in India than in developed countries. The outsourcing business amounts to almost for the 8 % industry and this figure is doubling in value every year.

METHODOLOGYType of research-Descriptive & Exploratory researchDescriptive study is a fact finding investigation with an adequate interpretation. It is the simplest type of research and is more specific. Mainly designed to gather descriptive information and provides information for formulating more sophisticated studies. Descriptive research, also known as statistical research, describes data and characteristics about the population or phenomenon being studies.

Scaling techniqueFor the measurement of variables, Nominal Scale is used which is the most widely used scale in market research, where respondents specify their response to a statement.

SCOPE AND IMPORTANCE OF THE STUDY

The project aims to get us out of the classroom and into the real world of companies/ competitors, markets, managers and customers. For me, it opens the way for walking into experiences. The ultimate goal of this research is enormous with its true sense. Physically and practically, it shows the potential for the company and me. The scope of the project helps in analyzing the factors, which influence the referring behavior of customers. The scope is such that the study has been conducted by taking samples from different areas, which depicts the overall picture. The results obtained will give an overview of the different criteria based on which an existing customer can be used to generate sufficient leads for the company. The study can be helpful in taking decision so as to improve the approach towards customers for getting reference and service. This project also helps to know how an organization works in real environment and under different market scenario.

Importance of Study:The main purpose of study is to increase the productivity of kiosk (outreach) regarding HUL Pure it water purifiers. The survey was conducted in Ahmedabad area not all but only some parts have included for survey. Due to shortage of time it was not possible to cover the whole areas. Thus the scope of the study was completed with the time and resources available.

Direct MarketingDirect Marketing is a method which helps to create a direct connection with the potential consumer to obtain an immediate response and cultivate lasting consumer relationship. Hindustan Unilever limited is the company in India to doing direct marketing in water purifier. Today it is Asia largest direct selling organization. It has distributors across the country and operating in over towns and cities. direct selling force dealers and touching 1.5 million Indian homes and adding 1000 customers daily. It has

Advantages of Direct Marketing It is easy, convenient and private. Provides more choice to the consumer Consumers can avail best price as there is no middle men involved. Helpful for the companies to build a close and direct relation with the consumer. It saves the valuable time of the working and busy people.

Disadvantages of Direct Marketing Consumer cant touch and feel the product before buying The scope of expansion is limited in this kind of marketing It has higher per person cost than other form of advertising. There is a great scope for misleading and deceiving customers by dishonest businessman. It may cause irritation to the consumer through unwanted mail and spam.

16

SELLING STRATEGY ADOPTEDBecause of the low interest and since the product benefits needs to be demonstrated to the customers, conventional distribution was not viable. Hence Hindustan Unilever limited chose the less traveled Direct Selling route. The Hindustan Unilevers sales man in water division is called PWE. It has three streams for selling of product i.e. cold calls (door to door selling), outreach (Kiosk) and clinic (Hospital). It is a tough job for these salesmen who have to go through the "cold calls" to get a sale. At one point of time, because of the aggressive nature of these sales persons, people became scared even to listen to these sales persons. Now this aggression has mellowed down to a more professional sales approach. Selling Strategy adopted by company are, 1. Direct Selling- Door-to-Door Selling 2. Outreach (Kiosk) 3.Clinic (Hospital)

Product SegmentationHindustan Unilever sells different water-purifiers on the basis of classifying their utility and price affordability. The water purifiers are classified as follows: (1)Pure it compact Rs 1000 /(2)Pure it M05 Model Rs 2000 /(3)Pure it Autofill Rs 3200 /(4)Pure it Marvella Rs 6900 /-

The WHO estimates that 94% of these diarrheal cases are preventable through modifications to the environment, including access to safe water. Simple techniques for treating water at home, such as chlorination, filters, and solar disinfection, and storing it in safe containers could save a huge number of lives each year. Reducing deaths from waterborne diseases is a major public health goal in developing countries.

Water Purifier Market in India 2010The water purification and treatment industry in India, under siege from cheap imports ofwater treatment products from China, is working to set standards for the water treatment industry in the country as a safeguard against 'spurious' products. This, is being done through a certification process. Hence, for the first time the industry has put its head together to come up with a solution.In a country like India, where water scarcity is growing by the day, there are too many issues relating to water. This has meant that there are dime a dozen firms that are trying to make the best of the situation. Now there is a clamour for proper standards.

India Water Purifier Market has tremendous growth potentialGlobally more than one billion people lack access to safe drinking water and approximately 2.4 Billion people lack access to proper sanitation, nearly all of them in the developing countries, including India.

Procter & GambleProcter & Gamble is a giant in household products, and the company which defined many marketing strategies we now take for granted. It was the first company to advertise nationally direct to consumers (In 1880) and it literally created the concept of Soap Opera by sponsoring radio and television dramas targeting women. P&G found life in the first years of 21st century more difficult than it may have expected, with earnings below expectations and a series of management shake ups as a result of under performance. The group got back on track during 2002 with the purchase of Clairol and Wella and a renewed focus on core products. Following dynamic performance in 2004 and 2005, P&G demonstrated the strength of its recovery with the January 2006 announcement that it has agreed a deal to acquire legendary personal care products rival Gillette. Advertising Age/TNS estimated global measure advertising expenditure of $5.8bn in 2004, making P&G the worlds #1 advertiser.

Competitive analysis of Pure It What is Competitive Analysis?Competitive Analysis is a process of gathering and analyzing information about competitors, their practices, products, strengths and weaknesses and business trends in order to assess our position in the market and improve companys products and marketing strategies.

What is the purpose of Competitive Analysis?In today's market, i must know what competitors are doing and what to do to stay ahead of the competition. Many businesses believe they are providing a good product to their customers, but do not have reliable information showing how customers perceive their product or how it compares to the competition. A Competitive Analysis performed by an unbiased third party is an invaluable tool because it can help to company for identify ways to attract new customers, as well as keep the ones you have satisfied with companys products.

Strengths and weaknesses: How companys product stacks up against the competition and in what areas they have an edge over companys product and in what areas companys product is superior.

Improvements: How and in what areas companys product, processes, and practices must be improved to meet market demands or to stay ahead of the competition. Marketing: What improvements company needs to make in marketing approach company may want to highlight why their product is ahead of the competition, or the unique features that consumers desire.

How can Competitive Analysis help establish companys product as a market leader?65

Competitive Analysis gives to company a realistic view of their competition and the opportunity to identify improvement in areas like customer services, and marketing claims. It can help to compare products prior to making their marketing and promotional decisions. Competitive Analysis will help accomplish the following:

Have a realistic view of company competition. Foresee market changes and demands. Identify ways to attract customers from companys competitors. Discover opportunities for improvement in companys business practices. Identify necessary changes in companys processes to meet market demands. Identify necessary changes in companys processes to reduce costs.

A List of CompetitorsThe analysis begins with a list of Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) of water division Pure its competitors. Most of the time, such a list is comprised of what company coconsiders to be its chief competitors. However, there may be other companies that indirectly compete with HUL, ones that offer products or services that are aiming for the same customer capital. Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) of water division Pure its competitors in the market are: 1. Eureka Forbes Limited 2. Philips 3. Whirlpool 4. Kent 5. Usha Brita 6. Alfaa 7. Kenstar 8. Hi-tech 9. Zero B 10. Modi Durant66

11. Hemkund 12. Godrej 13. Tata

Questions to askWhat questions should be asked when undertaking competitor analysis? Who are companys competitors? What threats do they pose? What is the profile of competitors? What are the objectives of competitors? What strategies are competitors pursuing and how successful are these strategies? What are the strengths and weaknesses of competitors? How competitors are likely to respond to any changes to the way company do business?

Why companies analyze competitors?Some businesses think it is best to get on with their own plans and ignore the competition. Others become obsessed with tracking the actions of competitors (often using underhand or illegal methods). Many businesses are happy simply to track the competition, copying their moves and reacting to changes.

Competitor analysis has several important roles in strategic planning:67

To help management understand their competitive advantages/disadvantages relative to competitors. To generate understanding of competitors past, present (and most importantly) future strategies. To provide an informed basis to develop strategies to achieve competitive advantage in the future. To help forecast the returns that may be made from future investments.

Sources of information for competitor analysisHow the sources of competitor information can be neatly grouped into three categories: Recorded data: this is easily available in published form either internally or externally. Good examples include competitor annual reports and product brochures; Observable data: this has to be actively sought and often assembled from several sources. A good example is competitor pricing; Opportunistic data: to get hold of this kind of data requires a lot of planning and organization.

What businesses probably already know their competitors? Overall sales and profits Sales and profits by market Cost structure Market shares (revenues and volumes) Organization structure Distribution system Identity / profile of senior management Advertising strategy and spending Customer / consumer profile & attitudes68

Customer retention levels

What businesses would really like to know about competitors? Sales and profits by product Relative costs Customer satisfaction and service levels Customer retention levels Distribution costs Size and quality of customer databases Advertising effectiveness Future investment strategy

Strategy - competitive advantageCompetitive advantage is an advantage over competitors gained by offering consumers greater value, either by means of lower prices or by providing greater benefits and service that justifies higher prices.
