As we find through this project that awareness level about Apollo Pharmacy is not so high because of Apollo Pharmacy hasnt spent much time in Jaipur. Apollo Pharmacy is rapidly spreading awareness about its brand through its quality products and genuine medicines.</p> <p>SUGGESTIONSCompanys representative should tell the product to their existing customer, who is loyal for the company. Improve their promotional activities. Demand and supply of the all brand. Competitors activates. Apollo Pharmacy retail staff</p> <p>FINDINGSBetter product schemes for the costumer and the doctors. Company reputation in the market. Efficiency of Representative to details the product. Recommendations of the brand by the different approving authorities. Top Potential Hospital. Top Potential Doctors.</p> <p>LIMITATION OF STUDYThe survey was conducted on questionnaire basis. So everything in detail was not available. Only sample of customers are severed because of limited time and economic constraints. To get an appointment with Doctors was a huge task due to their hectic schedules. Time factor was another big issue sometimes even to get a single response one has to wait for 1-2 hours and in many cases ended up with no response.</p>
