This way the intermediary steps that may add time and cost are eliminated, and Dell is directly linked to its customers. Figure 4: Distribution channel of Dell vs. a traditional company [31] In fact, Dell sells directly to all its customers, “from home-PC users to the world’s largest corporations” [54]. This way it creates a direct relationship with each individual customer, which turns out to be a great source of competitive advantage. As Michael Dell has stated, this direct relationship “creates valuable information” about the customer, thus Dell knows who the end users are, what they have bought from Dell and what their preferences are, a fact that allows Dell to offer add-on products and services, and stay, in general, closer to the customer [27]. As Lawton et al [29] suggest, this “provides Dell with a wealth of marketing and product development information”. Dell distinguishes three rough customer segments: large organizations (large companies or government institutions), small and medium businesses, and personal consumers; the mix of customers served is wide (no customer represents more than 1-2% of Dell’s revenues) and there is a focus on large customers (70% of Dell’s sales...

What could be done? The main crop that IBD was responsible for was Soybean, one of the causes of the lag behind other divisions was the inefficiencies in the supply chain network of the industry.

Physcially product was moved from the farm across the region to the Mandi (auction) and then taken to the buyer for either export or processing. In the eChoupal model, an internet capable computer was set up with access to a website that provided industry specific information regarding industry transactions and prices as well as regionalized weather reports and information sharing such as best practices. Physically product was moved from the farm direct to the buyers (ITC) facilities.

...HAMPTON INN: THE 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE 1. The philosophy behind the 100% Satisfaction Guarantee is to have the guests act as quality-assurance inspectors by identifying quality deficiencies and reporting them to hotel employees. I do think that this is a good way to improve service quality; however, I am not sure that it is the best way. While it may seem to consumers that employees will try harder to satisfy them, if employees are empowered to refund a customer’s money, they do not have to answer to management, they can just do it. 2. The implications of the 100% Guarantee for (a) guests, (b) managers, (c) owners of the hotel buildings and (d) Promus are: a) Guests – that no matter what happens, even if the hotel really did nothing wrong, they can get their money back. b) Managers – that they have very little to no control over their property or employees. It seems like many important decisions have been taken away from managers, and they can not react in the best interest for the hotel chain because what’s in the customer’s best interest is usually not the same as the company’s best interest. c) Owners of the Hotel Buildings – that they need to keep their facilities in tip top condition or else customers will be dissatisfied with their experience and demand their money back. d) Promus – that this is a program that can enhance the quality of their hotel system. 3. I think that since certain events are “uncontrollable” it would be more...
