EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The project aims at understanding the Marketing strategies at Airtel and its impact on the perception of Airtel Cellular Services. Research has demonstrated conclusively that it is far more costly to win a new customer than it is to maintain an existing one. And there is no better way to retain a customer than to exceed his expectations. For this purpose it is essential to know the level of customer satisfaction. The focus of my research was the measurement of customer satisfaction level for the services provided by Bharti Airtel. The research was done for the corporate clients of Bharti Airtel. My job was not only to represent the Corporate Sales Dept. and collect the feedback from the clients but also to get the major complaints resolved through internal counselling. There can be no better opportunity to interact with the external as well as the internal customers of an organization. Finally the results of the…...

...Airtel pricing : There are two segements of consumers-High demand and Low demand consumers.High demand consumers will have higher utility for services than low demand consumers.High demand users will be willing to pay higher entry charge to avail the service than low demand consumers.Therefore,Airtel will extract maximum consumer surplus from high demand consumers (40.5 in this case)by keeping the entry fees high and in order to expand their market they will charge lower entry fees(3.125) from low demand users.As the talktime requirements are more for high demand consumers price/minute will be low to encourage more usage(.1 being the corresponding price for 40.5 entry fees).On the other hand price/minute will be high for low demand consumers because of limited usage(.2 being the corresponding price for 3.125 entry fees)The payoff in this case Is also maximum(4050+3200=7250).No other combination provides a better payoff. Yes it is possible to have two different plans for each group of customers.For high demand customers by using profit maximization equation of Mr= Mc, Airtel can charge per unit price of 55 cents per minute and for low demand customer Airtel can charge 30 cents which leads to higher revenues as compared to when airtel is charging 25 cents flat for both categories of customer . Airtel can keep high demand customers and low demand customers from switching by offering positive incentives to high demand customers and no incentive to low demand......

...Bharti AirTel Case Digest Bharti AirTel Limited, although in relatively good financial standing, should be very careful in allocating its limited resources. Investments for network installation, maintenance, service and IT systems can cause significant pressure in Bharti’s working capital. As such, investment decisions can make or break Bharti. There are several key reasons why Bharti should outsource its network and IT systems. The first reason is the rapidly changing environment of the telecommunication industries. If Bharti purchases its own network and IT systems, the systems may be obsolete in no time thus wasting the limited capital resources of this company. A second reason is Bharti’s should concentrate on its competencies. Its strength is not technology but operations. This firm’s competency is not in IT design or in network systems. Instead, its core competency is branding and customer service. Therefore, it is in these areas that Bharti has to concentrate. Bharti should leave the technology part to its vendors so that it can maintain its competitive edge. Outsourcing will provide Bharti the option of always getting the best in the field as vendors compete against each other in providing the best offerings at the best cost. Bharti can change networks/IT without worrying about the fixed structures that will become obsolete and useless because of the rapidly evolving technology. Practically, Bharti will in fact be transferring investment risks to the......

Bharti Airtel

...If you were Bharti, what major concerns would you have about entering an outsourcing agreement with IBM? With Ericson, Nokia or Siemens? Bharti Airtel started as a very small company with only $900 capital. Who would have imagined it would have become India biggest Telecom Company. Today, Airtel is the largest provider of mobile telephony and second largest provider of fixed telephony in India, and is also a provider of broadband and subscription television services. It offers its telecom services under the "Airtel" brand, and is headed by Sunil Bharti Mittal. It also acts as a carrier for national and international long distance communication services. Concerns with IBM, Nokia, Ericson and Siemens When Bharti was going through crises of capital expenditures, Gupta introduced two proposals for their benefit. One was to combine with IBM and another was to Nokia, Ericson and Siemens. Their strategy was to hand over the full responsibility of buildup, maintenance and servicing of the telecom network to equipment vendors. As IT technology is not an easily available and cheap market. It does require a lot of investment money to go in. At that stage-when Gupta made the proposal-Bharti didn’t had much. So from the point of a chairman it was the best solution to get the outsourcing done. “The advantages that it has was uncertainty in expenditure would have been low, transferring risk equipment risk to the vendors, pay for use and avoid capacity wastage”(Applegate, Austin......

Bharti Airtel

...Bharti Airtel Case In the year 2004, Bharti Airtel was at an important crossroads where the company needed to make decisions that would be instrumental in deciding how successful the company would be in the future. The company was growing at an incredible pace, 100% per year, and it was having trouble keeping up with the growth in order to maintain the network. The process of budgeting, maintaining vendor contracts, and managing IT capital expenditure were starting to become a formidable challenge for the company. Bhart Airtel needed to understand exactly what its core competencies were and make the appropriate strategic plans to focus on the competencies. Bharti Airtel’s core competency was understanding the customer’s needs and building the brand up. There was a 300-400 million potential Indian phone customers, and Bharti Airtel’s goal was to capture as much of the market share as they could. The problem was that the company was spending much of it’s time and resources on maintaining the expansive network and focusing on it’s Information Technology needs. This led to the company being more focused on it’s IT needs and less on it’s core competency. Akhil Gupta decided to make a revolutionary decision by changing they way things had been done. Instead of focusing the company’s time and resources on expanding and maintain the expansive network, Gupta thought it was a better idea to outsource all of it’s IT needs. This unpopular decision by Gupta meant that Bharti......
