The findings obtained from the analysis of information (Data) regarding the dealers of durable electronic home appliances are as follows:
1. Employees employed by dealers do not have adequate technical background while dealers have sound experience in the field of marketing and distribution. This is a strong point here.
2. Pricing system does not have any uniformity and rationale. Pricing system varies with the manufacturer, dealer or with the syndicate of dealer. This eventually affects the marketing of products.
