...Customization Assignment After checking the Italian jeweler Pomellato's website and doing some research about what the company has been doing in terms of mass customization, a few worth mentioning points can be made: Italian jeweler Pomellato is revitalizing the image of three of its classic ring designs with art-house films meant to display the brand’s emotion and dedication to creativity. Pomellato’s “Icon Movies” film series pays homage to the jeweler’s Nudo, Capri and Sabbia collections and shows both the personality of the filmmaker and his subject. Outsourcing creative initiatives to young talent can help a brand acquire new enthusiasts by positioning its products in front of younger consumers. Paula Rosenblum, managing partner at RSR Research, Boston, thinks that it is all about keeping the imagery of the jewelry timeless, yet up-to-date. In the case of Nudo, for example, you have fresh talent with echoes of Madonna and the Rolling Stones, which is pretty contemporary to Pomellato’s beginnings. In its own way, in Capri, we see a lot of similar concepts, a memory of past special moments with the ring as the reminder; all interpreted by young, interesting talent. Finally, in Sabbia, we seem to go all the way back to the start of the universe and a reminder that matter existed long before we, as human beings, did, and likely will go on after us. Ms. Rosenblum, an industry expert, stated that Pomelatto, acquired by luxury conglomerate Kering, in 2013, did......

Chapter 13

...of the best sales forces by Sales & Marketing Management magazine in 1998. Senior executives at Frito-Lay understand that continued growth is not only the result of good advertising campaigns but also the culmination of thousands of five-minute, face-to-face conversations their individual sales reps have daily with store managers at supermarkets and convenience stores. Frito-Lay’s route service reps (RSRs) use technology and selling skills to convince store managers to stock more Frito-Lay products and position them prominently on their shelves. With handheld computers, RSRs track how products are selling in each store. The company does a monthly analysis of which sizes and flavors sell well in each sales territory. It knows, for instance, that spicier snacks are popular in the South and Cheetos sell well in large cities. Frito-Lay then uses these data to optimize what they stock on shelves, as well as to plan promotions tied around certain brands. RSRs visit small accounts at least three times a week and visit large stores like Kroger and Wal-Mart daily. With this frequency, RSRs can closely monitor sales and assist store managers with promotional ideas.1 As you can see, Frito-Lay places considerable emphasis on promotion in its marketing mix. What is the role of promotion in the marketing mix? What types of promotional tools are available to companies and what factors influence the choice of tool? How is the promotion plan created? The rest of the chapter answers these......

A Comparative Analysis of the Effectiveness of Three Solvency Management Models any firm should be the one that would give an “advance” warning of an impending catastrophe rather than the symptoms of it, as symptoms only manifest when a patient is already under attack. In this paper, we are going to look at the three most significant liquidity management models with a view to assessing the relevance, effectiveness and limitations of each model and making recommendations as appropriate. 3. Methodology This study employed the empirical analyses of the annual reports and financial summaries of 7 quoted companies to test the indicative and predictive effectiveness of three solvency management models namely - the normal current ratio analysis, the Altman’s Z-score model, and the Enyi’s Relative Solvency Ratio (RSR) model, with incisive review of their supporting literature. 4. Supporting Literature 4.1 Liquidity Management and Organizational Efficiency/Effectiveness The measurement of organizational efficiency underscores in real terms the viability and feasibility expectancy of any organization. How effective an organization becomes is a matter of how competent the overall management is. Efficiency is a function of effectiveness but the two are jointly used to appraise the consequential outcome of the operational activities of an organization which in turn determines the feasibility expectancy of that organization. Efficiency is less precise and definite than effectiveness in that it denotes the relationship existing between inputs and......

...fall behind their competitors. - Gartner, Key Issues for Retail 2011 4 © 2011 Retail TouchPoints Meeting Consumers Where They Shop Engaging with consumers at their channel of choice is a key element in the quest for overall crosschannel success. Consumers are increasingly responding to personalized merchandising opportunities and product recommendations. In fact, 39% of consumers say these tactics motivate them to purchase a product often to once in a while, according to the e-tailing group in its 2011 study titled Consumer Insights Into Multi-Channel Interactions: Practical Tools For Profitable Selling. “It’s encouraging to see that retailers are completely aware that the customer is driving the bus here,” added Steve Rowen of RSR Research. “From a consumer perspective, the more free and actionable the flow of product and brand information, the better.” Rowen noted that as many as 75% of retailers agree that social media helps round out the retail consumer experience; and 72% say the customer is forcing them to have a social media presence in the first place. Even in today’s challenging economy, when retailers have their eye on cost containment, improving customer service remains a top priority. Close to 70% of retailers cited a customer service strategy as a leading priority, a 13% increase over 2010, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF) in its 2011 Retail Horizons report. Retailers are working towards improved customer service, and increased......

...largest snack food company in the world. Many of the company’s well known brands include Doritos, Lays, Ruffles, Cheetos Tostitos, Fritos, Smartfood, and Santitas, five of which create a billion dollars in sales or more annually. Frito Lay Inc., the snack food division of PepsiCo makes up about half of the parent company’s revenue and about two thirds of the company’s profits. Last year Frito Lay Inc. generated 48 billion dollars in revenue and employed over 48,000 people. The current role that I hold in the company is Route Sales Representative (RSR). This role consists of what they coin the “heart of the company,” and generates a major share of the company’s revenue. An RSR’s position consists of selling merchandise to the customer, delivering the product, stocking of the product as well as customer service. During the last 10 years the company has changed the pay structure that determines the compensation that each RSR receives. In doing this they have also increased the workload and amount of expectations that have been placed on the shoulders of the employees. During all of the events that were involved with the pay changes, the morale and drive of the employees continued to drop. On a daily basis you can walk into the office and see an obvious lack of interest in the day-to-day operations, growing lack of concern in increased duties or committee involvement, and an obvious decrease in motivation.

...they are held accountable for team goals. The main goals of a Sales Representative are to ensure store compliance with promotions, share of shelf, new products, and to generate sales. There are many reports that are generated on a daily, weekly and monthly basis that assist managers with the assessment of the RSR’s job performance. The reports that are focused on the most are the new item report, which show how fast an RSR gets a new item on the shelf at their accounts, the share of shelf report, which shows the percentage of the shelf that Nestlé owns, and the sales report, which shows a dollar amount of sales that an RSR has made. These reports are shared with the RSR’s and they are held accountable for understanding the reports and knowing where they stand at all times. The most important thing is that these reports are used to judge the RSR at the end of the year during the annual review process. The results of the annual review directly affect the RSR’s increase in salary and bonus. Speaking of compensation, there are many perks to being an RSR. Outside of monetary compensation RSR’s receive other benefits including medical insurance, 401K matching, company car, reimbursement for internet and cell phone bills, and paid vacation days. Perhaps the most enjoyed rewards come from those received from winning contest and reaching sales goals. Those rewards include everything from team dinners, to trips and I-pads. RSR’s can also earn points which can be traded in on a......

...LOGISTIC 4MAIVAQEMENT From bricks to clicks How growth in online sales is transforming supply chains BY WILLIAM HOFFMAN I f there's a silver lining for retailers anywhere in the economic storm, it's online. While in-store sales sagged in the third quarter, online sales were up nearly 6 percent year over year — an indication that more consumers are hunting for bargains on their laptops or PCs, instead of in department store aisles. The growth in online business is already reshaping transportation networks as retailers collaborate with manufacturers to ship items directly to consumers, said Brian Kilcourse, managing partner at retail analyst RSR Research. "All the supply chain costs go away," he said. "It's a competitive advantage. Can they grow it? I don't see anything but blue sky for that opportunity, when you start to think about the implications of it." Most retailers' online supply chains largely reflect their brick-and-mortar operations, said Dave Hogan, senior vice president of retail operations and chief information officer at the National Retail Federation. But that's beginning to change as companies see savings from having fewer fixed assets iñ trucks and warehouses, more flexibility in transportation, lower inventory carrying costs and less costly and risky handling processes, he said. Although online retail accounts for just 3.4 percent of all retail sales, according to the Commerce Department, its weight in the......
