Elektronikz Inc. - a new system

Extracts from this document...


A SMALL INTRODUCTION TO THE COMPANY Elektronikz Inc. is a new company which first opened in Mumbai, India. They deal with all electronic products ranging from small appliances used at home to home theatre systems and mobile phones. They are sole distributors of world famous brands including Panasonic, Philips, Sony etc. They opened their first showroom in 1990 and were progressing very well. The UAE branch had opened on the 1st of January 2001. This was the second showroom put up and the owner Mr. K. A. Soorya had decided to try his luck in the UAE, seeing that UAE was indeed a land of great opportunities. The showroom opened with a marvellous inauguration ceremony where the company had introduced huge sales and draws in order to make itself known to the public.

The branch only accepts cash as a method of payment. The firm also deals with the repairing of products which they sell. They have four trained technicians who handle repairs of all products that they sell. Since they accept the repairs of items not brought from the outlet they usually have many customers or companies who wish to correct some appliance. Thus the outlet needs to keep records of repairs done. The customers are given a form where details of name, address, complaint etc. are to be stated. This form, after being filled, is given to the retailer and he stores it in a cabinet. The product to be repaired is kept aside in a separate storeroom. At the end of each week the contents of the cabinet and the appliances to be repaired are delivered to the service centre where the technicians check and fix the appliance. Then the technician writes out a form regarding the costs and sends it along with the appliance back to the showroom. Then the customer can go on the collecting date to the showroom and then collect the appliance.
