  55. 55. Working of merchandizing boys<br />The typical job of merchandizing boy is to clean, stock, replenish the shelves allotted to him.<br />It general it was found out that the stocks of Head & Shoulders, Colgate were once refilled in the morning only and in the later day they were only restacked accordingly. The stocking of product typically took 1.5hrs-2hrs. <br />
  56. 56. Working of merchandizing boys<br />Later in the day the job of the merchandising boys was to check whether the products were in proper shape or not. A merchandising boy typically handles 4-5 brands. After lunch reshelfing was only done not replenishment.<br />
  57. 57. Allotment of shelf Space……<br />In Air Force canteen it was found out that the shelfs were donated by HLL. So the top racks were first provided to them , then to other brands.<br />Also the canteen ground floor was divided into A,B,C group so as to facilitate the classification of the products.<br />
  58. 58. Allotment of Shelf Space<br />For the companies that do not visit the canteen their products are placed on testing basis. The shelf is allotted to them is 1st & 2nd counter then depending on sales the product is re-positioned.<br />If the product sells prominently then good shelf space is allotted or vice versa.<br />To place the products, Manager is the Whole & Sole for the decision.<br />
  59. 59. Allotment of the Shelf Space…<br />Companies like Roohafza and many other small units, generally don’t have sales force dedicated to CSD.<br />For that reason they have to maintain the relationships with the CSD Branch Manager, and its on their request the merchandize boys take care of that brand.<br />
  60. 60. Allotment of Shelf Space….<br />The merchandising boys also get additional perks like top shelf space in return for the favor from the manager.<br />
  61. 61. Suggestions…..<br />The company needs to deploy a single brand full time employ for Noida CSD only. <br />Company should not go in contract with a third party for the merchandizing staff. <br />The basic criteria to get the top shelves in CSD outlets is to provide the canteens with display shelves, in return they provide a consistent top shelf for a time period.<br />A periodic review needs to be done to analyze the change in customer buying preferences at CSD. <br />A periodic review of merchandising staff needs to be done, so as to check the performance. The salary structure can be incentive based on how much care a person takes to enlist the brands at CSD. <br />
  62. 62. Suggestions….<br />Shelfs to be refilled thrice a day.<br />Hanging display boards to be placed. <br />Outside hoarding in collaboration with CSD outlet management can be provided.<br />Display boards, hanging advertisements, price tags should be provided so as to provide more and more information about the product. <br />Upper shelves to be utilized more for display rather than stockings. <br />
