In the promotional scheme, S&M should approach the leading builders of Bangalore viz. the Prestige Group, the Adarsh Developers, the Puravankara Group, the Brigade Group, the Confident Group, the Sobha Developers etc, to display our banners at their construction sites (which are near completion).
The banners have to be trimmed, seamed and eyeleted, so that they are ready to be fixed almost anywhere. It must carry a message as “PNT Fresh”: truly becomes your store, the place where you enter the world of FRESHNESS!! Please visit us and we'll be sure to greet you with a warm smile and lots of fresh F&V.
We have to workout a strategy based on capacity of the apartments either to supply the fresh fruits & vegetables to their door steps or to buy from the nearest PNT retail outlet.
We also should ensure that our ultimate goal is to create a warm, friendly place where people can come and shop, with options not only for special occasions, but for any and every occasion.
2) Transportation costs analysis
Forum has asked LO to submit the transportation cost spent on SDFs, in the same lines of the comparisons as that made on account of SGAs. LO should workout comparisons on cost implications on the basis of SDF wise / Route wise on account of transportation.
3) Crate management
In addendum to Sept BRM point no. 15: after we handed over the charge to security effect from 01.09.08, we noted that there was a difference of 2300 crates to date. This is a serious issue. HR/LO/OP/FA should meet GM jointly on Saturday 15/11/08 at 10 AM to discuss it and decide on shortages of crates. The shortage value should be deducted immediately from the security agency for the September bill.
We may think of an option of buying the laptops from SNX. While purchasing a laptop, we should ensure that the performance of mobile computing unit heavily depends upon three basic components: processor, memory and video. The better they are, the faster and smoother your computer will be. Accordingly PIS / S&P / FA should indicate the price tag and buy the laptops from SNX, after the approval of GM.
5) Bananas for auction
Again we have observed that at auction, Robusta Banana was not offered for 14 days and Yellakki Banana for 9 days. BL claims that the Banana received after auction and sales was also done through direct invoice. BL should ensure on timely supply to auction.
Further it is noticed that the sourcing of Banana from SGA was 43% whereas Non SGA was 57%. BL should get the explanation from Mr. Nanjareddy, the person responsible for banana section.
BL / S&P claim that the pending payments hampering the timely and consistency supplies. We will take up the matter with CEO, Horticulture Business and look for an arrangement of the working capital for F&V and FMCG. BL/S&P/FA to put up a proposal for working capital to appraise the management on the adverse effects while sourcing due to delay in payment.
Further, S&M should ensure the proper follow up and timely collection of debtors. In case of bulk coupon sales at retail stores atleast 50% of the realization should be in cash, this helps us to rotate the credit period of vendors as well as the customers. It will ease up the liquidity and working capital situation.
