Task 3

Scenario: Case Study - Plastic Products Ltd

Plastic Products Ltd is a company that produces and markets plastic cups, teaspoons, knives and forks for the catering industry. The company was established in 1974 in response to the changes taking place in the catering industry. The growth of the fast food sector of the market was seen as an opportunity to provide disposable eating utensils, which would save on human resources and allow the speedy provision of utensils for fast customer flow. In addition, Plastic Products has benefited from the growth in supermarkets and sells ‘consumer packs' through four of the large supermarket groups.

The expansion of sales and outlets has led Jim Spencer, the sales manager, to recommend to Bill Preedy, the general manager that the present salesforce of two regional representatives be increased to four.

Spencer believes that the new recruits should have experience of selling fast-moving consumer goods since essentially that is what his products are.

Preedy believes that the new recruits should be familiar with plastic products since that is what they are selling. He favours recruiting from within the plastics industry, since such people are familiar with the supply, production and properties of plastic and are likely to talk the same language as other people working at the firm.

Using the above case example in the scenario and any other relevant research, answer the following questions:

1. Explain with examples, how sales strategies can be aligned with corporate objectives in organisations like Plastic Products.

2. Explain why the recruitment and selection procedures are important for Plastic Products Ltd.

3. Evaluate the role of Motivation at Plastic Products Ltd. You should also explain how Remuneration and Training can be utilised as tools for motivation within Sales Management.

4. Explain how Plastic Products Ltd. can organise Sales activities in order to control of sales output.

5. Explain with examples, how effective Sales Management can be supported by the use of databases.

As a Sales Manager of Currys, you are considering expansion into one emerging market. Select an example of an emerging market such as Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, and answer these questions:

1. Investigate opportunities for selling internationally into your chosen emerging market.
2. Investigate opportunities for using Exhibitions/Trade-fairs in your chosen emerging market.
