Q: A travel agent has recently introduced a computer system into their High Street branches. Describe two reasons why they might have introduced this system. (4 marks)

  • The answer
  • The computers can be connected to the Internet (or they may use leased lines) to access industry databases to find the best deal for the customer. The company can also use the computers to send emails to all its branches. Email arrives quickly and so is much quicker than the postal service.
  • The question is worth 4 marks, and so a full explanation is needed. Each reason is worth 2 points, and needs to cover why the system was introduced, and how the company benefits from it.

marketing research
Marketing research
  • Marketing research can be concerned with any of a variety of aspects of the market: the product, sales, buyer behaviour, promotion, distribution, pricing, packaging, etc.
  • Since the researcher cannot investigate everything about a market, he/she must be selective. The question remains as to how the researcher decides where to focus the study, and to what depth each issue should be investigated.
  • The research design is a set of guidelines given to the researcher by the person(s) who have commissioned the research and/or the individual(s) who are to make use of the results in their decision making.
