connection between the company and its stores:
It is the policy or can say the prior need of the company to have a good relation between the company and its outlets or the stores. Almost all of the beverages stores in Dubai or in almost all of the Emirates have maximum products of this company it's all due to its extreme sales and that is due to the quality of the product which is improving day by day. As per the researches done by the Emirates research center the increasing product sale of the company is at an extreme rate it needs to show certain changes or can say improvement in its production speed so as to make up with its sales ratio. As per the internet sources the company is growing with 40% ratio every 10 years. As per the records of the sales of beverages of masafi it sells around more than one lack of mineral bottles per day and around 12,000 bottles of juices per day including the sales reports from all its retail stores. The best example for the services of this company can be taken from one of the most famous and well known scandals of this company where the company received some complains from its customers about the visible impurity in the bottles of this company as soon as the company heard this in no time all the bottles form all the outlets and the retail stores were backed by the company in no time and even in a day or two these infected bottles were exchanged by the fresh ones thus this shows the activeness and the sincerity of the company which increased its reputation among the retail outlets and even its customers. Thus all these activities have made the company even more firms in its decisions. (Masafi Co. LLC., 1996)
The increasing market of the company has made the company to think about how to control its increasing positions because although it is difficult to reach at the top but it is more difficult to maintain the same position further after. Thus the company has started to work hard on its "zero stock outs" and it's "on time delivery of orders". At present the maturity level of the company is not enough to give such feed backs so company has to bring some changes in its administrative level it has to adopt certain means or new policies in the company so as to bring the desired outputs.
The company should open at least two more factories in certain other parts of the country where the company takes a lot of time to make reach its goods this will not only make the transportation easy but the most important reason for this is to tackle the increasing pressure on its older factory which is now finding difficulties in carrying the loads of the market and due to this problem only the on time delivery of goods is not possible so this attempt will decrease the pressure and will solve the problem for the on time delivery of the goods and the nearer factories will save the transportation coasts also leading to the more profit for the company
Secondly, the company should organize every year few meeting or just an annual meet for its employees and the owners of the various outlets and the retailers. There the company can discuss how to do their remaining journey together so as to maintain their profit there they can also discuss about their problems for the policy of zero stock out as if the outlet owners will show active participation in this the problems can be solved for "no zero stock outs"
Learning from the other foreign countries and their way of preventing zero stock outs by the means of online connections of the company with its outlets and the retailers where the company is connected online by all the outlets in it all the data of sold items is maintained so decrease in any of the product will be fulfilled by the company before
The company should opt for the target system like the retailer or the outlet owner who has maintained zero-stock out will be given a special hamper like a car or certain costly items which will influence the owners to keep a record of its brought and sold items which will avoid zero stock outs.
Special goods delivery team should be made so as to act or respond on the orders of the outlets quickly for this the company should make new recruitments of the locals of that area who are well aware of all the ways. So these small decisions will fulfill the dreams for zero stock out and the on time delivery of the company's products
All the information's mentioned above were really not as easy to find as they look almost all the sites of masafi were visited and the required facts about the company were taken for the processing, not only this all the facts present on internet were squeezed and information's were taken out even a ten minutes meeting was also organized with the regional manager of the company which cleared many of our doubts.
The reason for quoting the above mentioned lines were that the distribution of the company's product is increasing and so the sales should also thus its number of factories should increase. Due to the increasing benefits of the company has made the employees irresponsible so annual meetings should be organized before a setback to the company again. Due to the increasing stores and factories and work the staff should also increase else increase of work load will decrease the performance of the employees. So all these efforts will surly fulfill the dreams of the company for "zero-stock outs" and the "on time delivery of products".
