Process of the work: First step in this department is target the customer, like 1) Consumer: household, students, professionals (doctors, C.A. etc.) ,individual shopkeeper etc. 2) Small & medium business: small business firms, individual proprietor, financial brocks advertising agency etc. And after that the sales executive should fill the CAF (customer application form) from them. In second step for work order is granted the CAF should be submitted in the main office. The main Branches for reliance wi-max in pune are as follows:- 1)Bajirao road 2) Bhosari & 3) Kondhwa. After the work order granted, engineers goes for the installation of the wi-max antenna, and they come back with FAA (final activation advice) which is by the customer.
  22. 22. 22 If there is some problem in the connectivity, or in the antenna the co. takes all responsibility in such type of matter, in short co gives the after sales service. Hierarchy for the Wi-max department: Shankar rao (Wi-max national head) Milind kshirsagar ( head of Maharashtra) Deepak mundada (head for pune area) Chitali Sharma (area sales manager) Channel partners There are something 16 channel partners under the reliance communications, and 3 area sales manager. Our co has sold 250 connections till now. The wi-max product has launched first time in pune, because the pune is the place where small & medium type business are more compare to other cities, it is a fast growing city, so for the test marketing they select the pune city in whole india.
  23. 23. 23 PRODUCT PROFILE
  24. 24. 24 PRODUCT PROFILE Firstly we should see what is Wi-max basically?  Wi-max stands for Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access  Wi-max refers to broadband wireless networks that are based on the IEEE 802 .16 standards, which ensures compatibility and interoperability between broadband wireless access equipment. Internet Access Today, There are multiple ways to access the internet today,  Broadband : High speeds, expensive, depends on availability of Last Mile copper to the home  WIFI : High speeds, expensive, sparse coverage  Dial up : Fading after the advent of broadband, : Low speed, call charges makes it expensive  Wi-MAX : promises high speeds, broader coverage, : Licensed frequency of operation, so interference is less likely : Tolerant to single reflections, in built QoS : Works on non-line of sight principles. : Supports differentiated service flows- high priority for Business customers, best effort for residential.
  25. 25. 25 How Wi-max works? Basically, in the Wi-max facility there is one antenna which is called as S.S. (signal subscriber). This S.S is nothing but a signal receiver. The engineers of the department check the feasibility of the network & fix that antenna. Reliance communications has fixed their micro machines at the mobile tower in four ways, and that machines throw the signals in certain limit, and the receiver catch that signals for start the network. When they fix that antenna or receiver at the terrace or on that place where the signal is good, one wire which name was ‗CAT-5‘ come from that antenna and it connect to the computer and after all these things the internet will be started. The main thing in this facility that the modem for the internet service which very important part is inbuilt in this antenna, there is no need for the other parts. For the company there is one rule, that when the customer want the wi- max connection the, antenna for that particular customer should be from the particular branch. When we take the antenna from branch, they give gate-pass to us. E.g. if the customer is in Bhosari area so, antenna for that customer come from Bhosari branch. And one other rule is, when customer have some problem about the service, so he should contact to customer care, after that the reliance co. sent a faulty work orders to franchises who are in that particular area. e.g. if the customer have some problem who stay in sadashiv peth area, and the installation of that customer is done by one of the other franchise, but faulty work orders come in our co, because our co is in sadahiv peth.
  26. 26. 26 Every customers record is maintained by the co. like, name of customer, work orders no, faulty work orders no, name of installation team, etc. The bill of this service will be paid by postpaid facility or by online facility. There is remaining a one main part that, training for the sales executive is given by the reliance co. which very helpful for the training student. I have attended that training also. The Balasubrhamanyam sir takes the sessions. After assessing the market response, the company will extend the WiMax service to other cities such as Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Chandigarh and Delhi. The move that targets the three million wireless internet users in the country is expected to give first-mover advantage to the company. Bharti Airtel, VSNL and BSNL have also tested the new technology and planning to roll out in the near future, said sources familiar with the situation. In India, WiMax has been launched by Aircel Cellular in Chennai for business customers. Now let‘s see, in wi-max what the various plans are for customers. There is mainly two plans 1) Consumer plan, 2) Business plan.
  27. 27. 27 Consumer plan: Consumer plan divided in to two parts, Flat fee plan Pay per MB plan Flat fee plan: Flat fee plan offers you the internet connectivity for unlimited time and unlimited usage.

  34. 34. 34 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
  35. 35. 35 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY A research design is the arrangement of condition for collection and analysis of data in a manner that aims to combine the relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure. Research design is the important because it facilitates the smooth sailing of various research operations, thereby making research as efficient as possible yielding maximum information with minimal expenditure of minimum time, effort, money. The research design chosen for the project was DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH studies are that studies that are concerned with describing the characteristic of a particular individual, or of a group. In descriptive the researcher must be able to define clearly, what he wants to measure and must find adequate methods of measuring it along with a clear cut definition of population he wants to study. The research design must make enough provisions for protection against bias and must maximize reliability, with due concern for the economical completion of the research study.
  36. 36. 36 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY Approach Summary Step 1 Initiation of the project Step 2 Study Design Step 3 Survey Step 4 Data Analysis Step 5 Recommendations STEP 1  Understanding the organization.  Understanding the scope of the project.  Formulation of plans to address the study objectives.  Studying product related details offered by Reliance & other competitors on  Secondary data from Reliance. STEP 2  Designing of the sample from existing data base  Collective preparation for interview & questionnaire.  Preparing the data analysis plan including data base structure.
  37. 37. 37 STEP 3  Collection of data by conducting the interviews (primary data) STEP 4  Area wise analysis & competitors mapping.  Analysis based on product/aesthetics type.  Analysis based on pricing. STEP 5  Suggesting guidelines for improvement.  Presentation of findings. The entire project was carried out for 2 months. INFORMATION NEEDED  To understand the product & service offering by Reliance.  To assess the customer/dealer perception about the quality of Reliance products and competitors.  To receive the suggestions from the customers/dealers for value addition.  To make use of the valuable information given by customer for offering them various attractive schemes.  To trace the overall customers/dealers as well as competitor profile.
  38. 38. 38 SOURCES OF DATA: I have done the project by taking both the Primary and Secondary data. Primary data: The data which I have collected from different corporate and SMEs through questionnaires Secondary data: The data which is given by the company and I also searched the data through the area wise telephone directory and field search. The data is all about regarding the address and contact numbers of the corporate and SMEs. QUESTIONNAIRE PREPARATION: RESEARCH INSTRUMENT: I used questionnaire as research instrument to collect the requisite information for the research. Questionnaire method was chosen because of its versatile. Almost every market problems involves people. Therefore ideas relative to people and its solution can be obtained by asking them about their problems. This type has the advantage that the respondents do not know exactly what is being measured and hence are not biased their answer to some extent. My research design made it necessary for me to collect accurate data to achieve useful result. For this reason I have decided to use primary source of data as well as secondary data
  39. 39. 39 DESIGNING OF QUESTIONNAIRE: Questionnaires are designed according to project requirement and company need. So while designing the questionnaire we have to include both awareness about the company‘s product and the competitors. But my main objective was to create the awareness of the company‘s product and to generate the leads for the company, so that questionnaire was designed according to gather data and find out the prospective corporate and SMEs. SAMPLING Target population Entire corporate SMEs & INDIVIDUALs in Pune city. Sampling frame The corporate & individuals. Sampling method: Probability sampling
  40. 40. 40 SAMPLE PLAN: A proper sampling plan is very important in the research process and it also makes the research process easy. It includes the sampling element, sample size and sample area. a) SAMPLE ELEMENT: It includes those respondents who are going to fill up and answer the questionnaire. b) SAMPLE SIZE: I have worked on a sample size of more than 300 numbers including all the corporate and individuals. c) SAMPLE AREA: The company had given me the instruction to visit all corporate SMEs & individuals, mostly the corporate. My main task was to collect the business related information from the corporate and to generate the leads for the company and to create awareness about new plans provided by the company for wi-max service. My area: Pune (Kothrude, Deccan, Pune camp, Hadapsar) Tools used for data presentation ---- Pie charts ----Bar charts
  41. 41. 41 CONTACT METHOD: Personal as well as telephonic interview methods were used.  Personal Interview: A person known as interviewer asks question in face to face contact to the other person.  Telephonic Interview: This method of collecting information consists in contacting respondents on telephone itself. The chief merits of such a system are  It is more flexible than other methods.  It is faster than other methods.  It is cheaper than personal interview.  Recall is easy.  There is higher rate of response. STATISTICAL TOOLS USED FOR DATA ANALYSIS: For analyzing the data I used Correlation analysis: This was used to correlate the complaints given by the dealers with the corresponding recommendations and suggestions. Correlation testing between the dealers complaints and suggestions help to decide whether I can infer any solution from dealer‘s suggestions to tackle their complaints. Area wise analysis of the share of Reliance competitors gives area wise share of each competitor and Reliance Competitors respective areas.

So, now people shift from BSNL to TATA or RELAINCE.  In rainy season, the reliance wi-max is very helpful for people.
  51. 51. 51 S.W.O.T ANALYSIS STRENGTH:  Globally known brand.  Innovativeness is done by the company by providing new schemes.  Bringing in the latest technology in the market i.e. C.D.M.A (Coded Division Multiple Access).  Excellent work force.  Very strong financial position.  Strong corporate image.  Trying to integrate all Telecom services.  Largest retail presence in the market place. WEAKNESS:  First direct customer integration.  Primary focus area is maximum coverage through it gives importance to providing good service but superficially.  Poor retail experience.  Many hidden policies.  It has grown from a few people to 28000 in the last 12-18 months and most of them have not worked with each other. Building a cohesive organization takes time.
  52. 52. 52 OPPORTUNITY:  Vast untapped market  60,000 km optic fiber network.  Out 18 Telecom circle in India Reliance has license for operation in 18 circles.  Better source of revenue, having a well established industry in India.  Increasing communication needs of individuals especially corporate sector.  High advertisement can create a demand for the Reliance.  Building more trust and faith though its goodwill THREATS:  The negative publicity by its competitors.  New competitors coming with more attractive plans.  Well established competitors.  Limited availability of instruments.  Negligence in terms of service will deteriorate its position in market.
  53. 53. 53 PROBLEMS FACED BY CUSTOMERS Reliance Communication is one of the leading telecom service providers, but its customer are still facing some of the problems that are hindering its growth and smooth functioning. By directly communicating with the customer I found the following problems faced by the customers. These problems are:  Improper distribution of bills: A large number of customer are facing billing related problems They have not been receiving the bills for the last many months as a result of which the image of the company is spoilt in the market.  Previous payment not reflected in the bills: It has been noticed that the bills do not reflect the change to be made the payment as desired due to which previous due are reflected in the bills even though the payments are received.  Delayed rectification of bills: Various changes like address rectification, previous dues waving the over drawn change rectification of rate plans etc not rectified properly.  Incorrect rates plans shown: In several bills wrong rate plans are shown due to improper filling customer application forms, due to which the billing is not properly done.
  54. 54. 54  The records are not updated: The records are not updated as a result of which the subscribers do not receive the required information immediately.  Delayed action taken by employees: The employees do not take immediate action on the problem faced by the customer as a result they have to bring to notice the problem again and again.  Customer care services : The customers are not satisfied with the customer care service s provided to them.
  55. 55. 55 LIMITATIONS
  56. 56. 56 LIMITATIONS  Inadequate information: Many Corporate did not reveal business related information like turnover, there manpower, the broadband service used by them, so due to which some of the questions were not answered/filled properly or accurately.  Sample size: As a number of corporate in Pune is large enough and widely spread all over the city, so it was difficult to cover all the areas in such a short span of time so for the convenience I took 300 as my sample size. And I restrict my self in to four areas only.  Many respondents could not give sufficient time to answer/fill the questionnaire.  Due to rainy season during duration of my project it was very difficult to approach the corporate & individual as a result I was short to visit no. of corporate in a day.  Some of them asked why should they give information and they are afraid to give the information because if the company mis utilize the information.  Some of the customers were very much disappointed with reliance service so they didn‘t entertain us.
  57. 57. 57 RECOMMENDATIONS
  58. 58. 58 RECOMMENDATIONS: The interpretation of data revealed certain factors and problem which would affect the future growth of the company (as stated earlier). Recommendation regarding to above found problem are as follows:  The company should provide the machine to sales executive for check the feasibility of network.  For increase the no of customers, reliance should increase the no. of towers.  While filling up to the C.A.F. forms extra care should be taken and the customer should be given detail information regarding the rate plan they are going to use.  It is very important to rectify billing related problem with proper coordination, and working.  The customer should be made aware of the latest developments or products by issuing pamphlets, broachers etc.  The subscribers problems should be solved as early as possible and he should be assured that he will not be facing the problem in near future.  Web world employees must be recruited by Reliance office only.  The customer care services should be improved.  The Data base should be updated in such away that the customers receive the required information immediately.
  59. 59. 59 CONCLUSION
  60. 60. 60 CONCLUSION Launching a new product or service is a costly, complicated and multi-faceted challenge that can turn into a monumental success or an embarrassing failure. On the data obtained through project I have come to conclude that Wi-max has other competitors as well as companies own products can be their indirect competitors (like Rel.wired broadband, Data card, USB modem etc.) Company should give more focus on advertising sectors as to capture the market of BSNL and TATA. Wi-max service is costly than other service providers and hence it is not affordable to potential customers.

  81. 81. 81 COMPANY PROFILE
  82. 82. 82 COMPANY PROFILE Pravah electronics co. is mainly work for the Reliance communications, Pravah electronics is mainly the franchise of the reliance. Pravah electronics co. is a small part of the reliance, it was existed in 2002. & The director of the co. was Sangram jadhaorao and rahul khurda. This is obvious that it is a partnership firm. In the company they are doing three types of work, in that, 1) They have taken Timex wrist watch dealership. 2) They are doing some computer hardwere work. & 3) Franchises of Reliance wi-max. Because of all these types of work I could learn lots of things in the co. The staff members of the company are almost 33. Normally company‘s annual turnover is 2.5 to 3crores. Till today the Pravah Company has sold 250 Wi-max connections for the reliance communications. Process of the work: First step in this department is target the customer, like 1) Consumer: household, students, professionals (doctors, C.A. etc.) ,individual shopkeeper etc. 2) Small & medium business: small business firms, individual proprietor, financial brocks advertising agency etc. And after that the sales executive should fill the CAF (customer application form) from them. In second step for work order is granted the CAF should be submitted in the main office. The main Branches for reliance wi-max in pune are as follows:- 1)Bajirao road 2) Bhosari & 3) Kondhwa. After the work order granted, engineers goes for the installation of the wi-max antenna, and they come back with FAA (final activation advice) which is by the customer.
  83. 83. 83 If there is some problem in the connectivity, or in the antenna the co. takes all responsibility in such type of matter, in short co gives the after sales service. Hierarchy for the Wi-max department: Shankar rao (Wi-max national head) Milind kshirsagar ( head of Maharashtra) Deepak mundada (head for pune area) Chitali Sharma (area sales manager) Channel partners There are something 16 channel partners under the reliance communications, and 3 area sales manager. Our co has sold 250 connections till now. The wi-max product has launched first time in pune, because the pune is the place where small & medium type business are more compare to other cities, it is a fast growing city, so for the test marketing they select the pune city in whole india.
  84. 84. 84 PRODUCT PROFILE
  85. 85. 85 PRODUCT PROFILE Firstly we should see what is Wi-max basically?  Wi-max stands for Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access  Wi-max refers to broadband wireless networks that are based on the IEEE 802 .16 standards, which ensures compatibility and interoperability between broadband wireless access equipment. Internet Access Today, There are multiple ways to access the internet today,  Broadband : High speeds, expensive, depends on availability of Last Mile copper to the home  WIFI : High speeds, expensive, sparse coverage  Dial up : Fading after the advent of broadband, : Low speed, call charges makes it expensive  Wi-MAX : promises high speeds, broader coverage, : Licensed frequency of operation, so interference is less likely : Tolerant to single reflections, in built QoS : Works on non-line of sight principles. : Supports differentiated service flows- high priority for Business customers, best effort for residential.
  86. 86. 86 How Wi-max works? Basically, in the Wi-max facility there is one antenna which is called as S.S. (signal subscriber). This S.S is nothing but a signal receiver. The engineers of the department check the feasibility of the network & fix that antenna. Reliance communications has fixed their micro machines at the mobile tower in four ways, and that machines throw the signals in certain limit, and the receiver catch that signals for start the network. When they fix that antenna or receiver at the terrace or on that place where the signal is good, one wire which name was ‗CAT-5‘ come from that antenna and it connect to the computer and after all these things the internet will be started. The main thing in this facility that the modem for the internet service which very important part is inbuilt in this antenna, there is no need for the other parts. For the company there is one rule, that when the customer want the wi- max connection the, antenna for that particular customer should be from the particular branch. When we take the antenna from branch, they give gate-pass to us. E.g. if the customer is in Bhosari area so, antenna for that customer come from Bhosari branch. And one other rule is, when customer have some problem about the service, so he should contact to customer care, after that the reliance co. sent a faulty work orders to franchises who are in that particular area. e.g. if the customer have some problem who stay in sadashiv peth area, and the installation of that customer is done by one of the other franchise, but faulty work orders come in our co, because our co is in sadahiv peth.
  87. 87. 87 Every customers record is maintained by the co. like, name of customer, work orders no, faulty work orders no, name of installation team, etc. The bill of this service will be paid by postpaid facility or by online facility. There is remaining a one main part that, training for the sales executive is given by the reliance co. which very helpful for the training student. I have attended that training also. The Balasubrhamanyam sir takes the sessions. After assessing the market response, the company will extend the WiMax service to other cities such as Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Chandigarh and Delhi. The move that targets the three million wireless internet users in the country is expected to give first-mover advantage to the company. Bharti Airtel, VSNL and BSNL have also tested the new technology and planning to roll out in the near future, said sources familiar with the situation. In India, WiMax has been launched by Aircel Cellular in Chennai for business customers. Now let‘s see, in wi-max what the various plans are for customers. There is mainly two plans 1) Consumer plan, 2) Business plan.
  88. 88. 88 Consumer plan: Consumer plan divided in to two parts, Flat fee plan Pay per MB plan Flat fee plan: Flat fee plan offers you the internet connectivity for unlimited time and unlimited usage.

  95. 95. 95 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
  96. 96. 96 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY A research design is the arrangement of condition for collection and analysis of data in a manner that aims to combine the relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure. Research design is the important because it facilitates the smooth sailing of various research operations, thereby making research as efficient as possible yielding maximum information with minimal expenditure of minimum time, effort, money. The research design chosen for the project was DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH studies are that studies that are concerned with describing the characteristic of a particular individual, or of a group. In descriptive the researcher must be able to define clearly, what he wants to measure and must find adequate methods of measuring it along with a clear cut definition of population he wants to study. The research design must make enough provisions for protection against bias and must maximize reliability, with due concern for the economical completion of the research study.
  97. 97. 97 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY Approach Summary Step 1 Initiation of the project Step 2 Study Design Step 3 Survey Step 4 Data Analysis Step 5 Recommendations STEP 1  Understanding the organization.  Understanding the scope of the project.  Formulation of plans to address the study objectives.  Studying product related details offered by Reliance & other competitors on  Secondary data from Reliance. STEP 2  Designing of the sample from existing data base  Collective preparation for interview & questionnaire.  Preparing the data analysis plan including data base structure.

  99. 99. 99 SOURCES OF DATA: I have done the project by taking both the Primary and Secondary data. Primary data: The data which I have collected from different corporate and SMEs through questionnaires Secondary data: The data which is given by the company and I also searched the data through the area wise telephone directory and field search. The data is all about regarding the address and contact numbers of the corporate and SMEs. QUESTIONNAIRE PREPARATION: RESEARCH INSTRUMENT: I used questionnaire as research instrument to collect the requisite information for the research. Questionnaire method was chosen because of its versatile. Almost every market problems involves people. Therefore ideas relative to people and its solution can be obtained by asking them about their problems. This type has the advantage that the respondents do not know exactly what is being measured and hence are not biased their answer to some extent. My research design made it necessary for me to collect accurate data to achieve useful result. For this reason I have decided to use primary source of data as well as secondary data
  100. 100. 100 DESIGNING OF QUESTIONNAIRE: Questionnaires are designed according to project requirement and company need. So while designing the questionnaire we have to include both awareness about the company‘s product and the competitors. But my main objective was to create the awareness of the company‘s product and to generate the leads for the company, so that questionnaire was designed according to gather data and find out the prospective corporate and SMEs. SAMPLING Target population Entire corporate SMEs & INDIVIDUALs in Pune city. Sampling frame The corporate & individuals. Sampling method: Probability sampling
  101. 101. 101 SAMPLE PLAN: A proper sampling plan is very important in the research process and it also makes the research process easy. It includes the sampling element, sample size and sample area. d) SAMPLE ELEMENT: It includes those respondents who are going to fill up and answer the questionnaire. e) SAMPLE SIZE: I have worked on a sample size of more than 300 numbers including all the corporate and individuals. f) SAMPLE AREA: The company had given me the instruction to visit all corporate SMEs & individuals, mostly the corporate. My main task was to collect the business related information from the corporate and to generate the leads for the company and to create awareness about new plans provided by the company for wi-max service. My area: Pune (Kothrude, Deccan, Pune camp, Hadapsar) Tools used for data presentation ---- Pie charts ----Bar charts
  102. 102. 102 CONTACT METHOD: Personal as well as telephonic interview methods were used.  Personal Interview: A person known as interviewer asks question in face to face contact to the other person.  Telephonic Interview: This method of collecting information consists in contacting respondents on telephone itself. The chief merits of such a system are  It is more flexible than other methods.  It is faster than other methods.  It is cheaper than personal interview.  Recall is easy.  There is higher rate of response. STATISTICAL TOOLS USED FOR DATA ANALYSIS: For analyzing the data I used Correlation analysis: This was used to correlate the complaints given by the dealers with the corresponding recommendations and suggestions. Correlation testing between the dealers complaints and suggestions help to decide whether I can infer any solution from dealer‘s suggestions to tackle their complaints. Area wise analysis of the share of Reliance competitors gives area wise share of each competitor and Reliance Competitors respective areas.

So, now people shift from BSNL to TATA or RELAINCE.  In rainy season, the reliance wi-max is very helpful for people.
  112. 112. 112 S.W.O.T ANALYSIS STRENGTH:  Globally known brand.  Innovativeness is done by the company by providing new schemes.  Bringing in the latest technology in the market i.e. C.D.M.A (Coded Division Multiple Access).  Excellent work force.  Very strong financial position.  Strong corporate image.  Trying to integrate all Telecom services.  Largest retail presence in the market place. WEAKNESS:  First direct customer integration.  Primary focus area is maximum coverage through it gives importance to providing good service but superficially.  Poor retail experience.  Many hidden policies.  It has grown from a few people to 28000 in the last 12-18 months and most of them have not worked with each other. Building a cohesive organization takes time.
  113. 113. 113 OPPORTUNITY:  Vast untapped market  60,000 km optic fiber network.  Out 18 Telecom circle in India Reliance has license for operation in 18 circles.  Better source of revenue, having a well established industry in India.  Increasing communication needs of individuals especially corporate sector.  High advertisement can create a demand for the Reliance.  Building more trust and faith though its goodwill THREATS:  The negative publicity by its competitors.  New competitors coming with more attractive plans.  Well established competitors.  Limited availability of instruments.  Negligence in terms of service will deteriorate its position in market.
  114. 114. 114 PROBLEMS FACED BY CUSTOMERS Reliance Communication is one of the leading telecom service providers, but its customer are still facing some of the problems that are hindering its growth and smooth functioning. By directly communicating with the customer I found the following problems faced by the customers. These problems are:  Improper distribution of bills: A large number of customer are facing billing related problems They have not been receiving the bills for the last many months as a result of which the image of the company is spoilt in the market.  Previous payment not reflected in the bills: It has been noticed that the bills do not reflect the change to be made the payment as desired due to which previous due are reflected in the bills even though the payments are received.  Delayed rectification of bills: Various changes like address rectification, previous dues waving the over drawn change rectification of rate plans etc not rectified properly.  Incorrect rates plans shown: In several bills wrong rate plans are shown due to improper filling customer application forms, due to which the billing is not properly done.
  115. 115. 115  The records are not updated: The records are not updated as a result of which the subscribers do not receive the required information immediately.  Delayed action taken by employees: The employees do not take immediate action on the problem faced by the customer as a result they have to bring to notice the problem again and again.  Customer care services : The customers are not satisfied with the customer care service s provided to them.
  116. 116. 116 LIMITATIONS
  117. 117. 117 LIMITATIONS  Inadequate information: Many Corporate did not reveal business related information like turnover, there manpower, the broadband service used by them, so due to which some of the questions were not answered/filled properly or accurately.  Sample size: As a number of corporate in Pune is large enough and widely spread all over the city, so it was difficult to cover all the areas in such a short span of time so for the convenience I took 300 as my sample size. And I restrict my self in to four areas only.  Many respondents could not give sufficient time to answer/fill the questionnaire.  Due to rainy season during duration of my project it was very difficult to approach the corporate & individual as a result I was short to visit no. of corporate in a day.  Some of them asked why should they give information and they are afraid to give the information because if the company mis utilize the information.  Some of the customers were very much disappointed with reliance service so they didn‘t entertain us.
  118. 118. 118 RECOMMENDATIONS
  119. 119. 119 RECOMMENDATIONS: The interpretation of data revealed certain factors and problem which would affect the future growth of the company (as stated earlier). Recommendation regarding to above found problem are as follows:  The company should provide the machine to sales executive for check the feasibility of network.  For increase the no of customers, reliance should increase the no. of towers.  While filling up to the C.A.F. forms extra care should be taken and the customer should be given detail information regarding the rate plan they are going to use.  It is very important to rectify billing related problem with proper coordination, and working.  The customer should be made aware of the latest developments or products by issuing pamphlets, broachers etc.  The subscribers problems should be solved as early as possible and he should be assured that he will not be facing the problem in near future.  Web world employees must be recruited by Reliance office only.  The customer care services should be improved.  The Data base should be updated in such away that the customers receive the required information immediately.
  120. 120. 120 CONCLUSION
  121. 121. 121 CONCLUSION Launching a new product or service is a costly, complicated and multi-faceted challenge that can turn into a monumental success or an embarrassing failure. On the data obtained through project I have come to conclude that Wi-max has other competitors as well as companies own products can be their indirect competitors (like Rel.wired broadband, Data card, USB modem etc.) Company should give more focus on advertising sectors as to capture the market of BSNL and TATA. Wi-max service is costly than other service providers and hence it is not affordable to potential customers.
