Preface
We want to express our experience and practical knowledge that we gained during the summer training at GODEREJ & Boyce Mfg.Co.Ltd.
It was our first experience when we went to the market not to buy any thing but to do the survey and to promote the sales of the product in the market. The basic need of the survey is to ensure about the policies and the strategies in the market. On first day we were nervous, but because of the good image of the GODERJ in the market the people attended us positively. Many people came themselves to us for knowing the details about the product.
For accomplishment of the project report we daily think about the conditions and views and then we used to compose the whole thing on computer. In making the project report theoretical knowledge was needed more than the practical which was given to us by our Professors in our ….
In the market the experience relating to the practical knowledge was very good which realized us about the real conditions of the marketing.
The study was restricted to the Government and Private Offices in ……. City. Of course all care has been taken and an attempt has been made to give as much clarity and conclusive evidence as possible within the short tenure of the study.
The project flows logically consisting of market research, data collection method and questionnaire. It is hoped that the findings and the suggestions will help the company, confidently to formulate its strategy in comparison to its competitors. We have enjoyed our summer training at GODREJ and have learnt lots of new things, which will be helpful to us during our work in any organization. We thank GODREJ for giving us this opportunity at their office and being good to us all the time.
We promise our help wherever needed to the company, We also yearn to work for the company in future. We hope the administration to think over our work for a while.

About Godrej


What's in a name, you might ask. Until you come across one that evokes pride and confidence in the heart of every Indian, seemingly blessed with a rare, almost magical, power. It is the name Godrej

Ardeshir Godrej
(1868-1936)


He was the first Indian manufacturer to displace well-entrenched foreign brands from the market. The word Godrej, etched into the metal of his locks, became a symbol of self-reliance for the generations that followed

With each new product Ardeshir changed perceptions about industry in India. He produced the finest security equipment, and then stunned the world by creating a soap from vegetable oils. What started as a dream had become a movement. But it was left to another man to carry it forward. Ardeshir's brother, Pirojsha

Pirojsha Godrej
(1882-1972)

Pirojsha Godrej laid the foundations for a throbbing enterprise at a sprawling industrial garden township outside Mumbai. It was here that the Godrej vision took concrete shape. In later years, its extent and scope was expanded greatly by his sons - Burjorji and Naoroji. To this day, products that compete with the best in the world continue to emerge from the gates of Pirojshanagar



Burjorji Godrej
(1915-1994)

Godrej touched the lives of millions of Indians everyday. To them, it is a symbol of enduring ideals in a changing world. Every product, every new concept gives shape to their visions of tomorrow.


Naoroji Godrej
(1916-1990)

The Godrej name yields powerful influence even in today's rapidly transforming social and economic environment

As it strides ahead confidently, discovering diverse new roles for itself, it gives direction to others.

It is the bridge between the future and a hundred years of history. It is a living code of ethics for Indian industry as it races ahead.

The method of collection of data depends mainly upon the nature, purpose and the scope of inquiry. Statistical data may be classified into primary and secondary data.

Secondary data are those which have already been collected by someone else and which have already bee n passed through the statistical process. It has two types.

1. Public data

PERCENTAGE OF VARIOUS BRANDS OF PHOTOCOPIERS IN OVERALL

XEROX 69 %
CANON 18 %
RECOH 2 %
SHARP 5 %
TOSHIBA 2 %
HP 4 %

TOTAL.......... 100%
FINDINGS

After completing the survey and analyzing the responses of the persons contacted. We came across the following facts: -
1. A large number of Government Organizations are using Xerox photocopier and are quite satisfied with the performance of the machine. Approximately 96% of the government organizations are using Xerox photocopier.
2. Majority of the respondents in the survey were found reluctant about giving details to us.
3. Existing customers of Xerox are satisfied with after sales services, with few exceptions.
4. Spare parts of Xerox photocopier are easily available.
5. The overall percentage of Xerox users is 56% followed by Recoh. Sharp, Toshiba, Hp, Canon etc
6. In private sectors canon gives cut throat competition to other brands because its recondition machines are easily available at a nominal price.
7. Customer think that brand name of the company can influence their purchase decision.
LIMITATIONS

Though we have made our best efforts to make the study fair, transparent, error free, but there might be some inherent limitations. Throughout this project we tried our level best to make this report most accurate but there were some limitations, which are as follows:
This fieldwork is confined to a single city Allahabad only therefore study does not reveal the exact market condition.
The sample size is very small.
Information may or may not be authentic, as the surveyors were not provided complete information in every organization.
Human error is unavoidable.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Godrej should hold more seminars, conferences and workshops for promoting its products and generating more clients.
Godrej should also emphasize on advertisement of its products and services.
Godrej should provide information time to time to its customers about its new collaborations with other companies like Xerox.
Xerox Corporation should introduce customer relationship management (CRM) system to be in touch with customer and to know their grievances.
Due to global integration the competition has increased a lot. So to stay ahead in this cut throat competition Godrej in collaboration with Xerox Corporation has to increase its customer loyalty and sales promotion schemes.

CONCLUSIONS


 XEROX CAPTURES THE LION’S SHARE: The study reveals that Xerox corporation captures the lion share of about 69% in the market of photocopier machines out casting all competitors far behind.

 PERFORMANCE OF THE MACHINE: As after survey the market I found that the government organizations using Xerox machine from last 5 to 10 years are satisfied with the performance of the machine.

• USER FRIENDLY MACHINES: After conducting the market survey we come to conclusion that the customer wants user friendly and easy to operate machines so that he may not have to incur any extra cost in operating that machine.
• PRICE OF THE MACHINE: Price of the machine is comparatively higher than other brands, which is a major factor due to which Xerox lags behind in private sectors.

 PHOTOCOPY REQUIREMENTS MET FROM MARKET: Only 6% of the sample size does not have photocopier machines. Either they are small organizations so that they cannot afford the expensive photocopier machines or their photocopy requirements are very less.

 MAINTENANCE AND HANDLING COST: Maintenance and handling cost of the Xerox photocopier is very high comparison than other company’s photocopiers and government organization has to invest a large amount of budget on its maintenance.
