Executive Summary As a market leader, Gramophone is continuously coming up with new ideas regarding its products and services.
Recently, the company is mainly focusing on the non-voice services. Because, the company knows in near future, voice based services will reach to the maturity stage which will make the business growth constant to mom extents. Hence, the company is trying to maintain the leading position in non- voices services as well like SMS, Push-pull, and Information related services at the early growing stage. These services are working as a building block to increase Gap’s service value. Coming up with innovative service is easier than making subscribers aware of services.
Hence through we have tried to analyze the present situation of the cellular phone industry in Bangladesh and Gaps position there in, find out the services that Grahame phone is presently providing to its valued customers ; their satisfaction level. 5 million people out of 140 million total citizen of Bangladesh are presently using cell phone; it means that out of every 9 people one is using cell phone. In the third world country like Bangladesh the amount of users is amazing. Gramophone holds almost 61% market share of telecoms industry that is out of every 10 users 6 belongs to Gramophone.
So Gramophone marketing strategy should be “Profitable growth & expanding market share through satisfying existing customers”. I have also made a comparative service analysis of various cellular phone companies in Bangladesh and drawn some valuable recommendation o Gramophone to be the market leader in future in this competitive market. A comprehensive study was conducted to know about Gaps marketing mix (APS), Competitors, Its Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities ; Threats, and present position in the market and its present service condition that is providing to its valued customers.
Therefore shows that Grahame phone is still a market leader in this industry but as it is becoming more competitive day by day so Grahame phone should revise its service packages, quality with more conveniently for the customers. Among the other cellular phone companies Gramophone has some unique nominative advantages in this industry in Bangladesh so if it is possible for GAP to provide better services with continuous innovative products it will add value to the success.
