Nokia has played a pioneering role in the growth of cellular technology in India, starting with the first-ever cellular call a decade ago, made on a Nokia mobile phone over a Nokia-deployed network. Nokia aims to provide products and services which meet the needs of trade customers and consumers. It researches the views of both groups to understand where it is succeeding and how it can do better. Its CRM strategies are focused around Product development through Customer-Centricity ( in product designing), Distribution- Company owned and third party, Ease of Servicing, Ease of Product Knowledge. The Customer Data Master or CuDM is Nokia’s answer to a software based customer information management system. It not only aids in managing B2B clients but also B2C customers. This study aims to understand the customer centric practices of Nokia and ensure maximum customer satisfaction. A market survey was conducted using the questionnaire method and responses from the chosen sample mobile customers collected were and analysed. The analysis helped us understand the weaknesses and strengths of Nokia. The study revealed data about how customers believe Nokia lags far behind in terms of innovation, despite the fact that Nokia prides itself on Innovation. This has led customers to shed Nokia to its buy its competitors’ products. Distribution is considered by customers as one of the biggest strengths of Nokia. Perhaps the most surprising finding of the market study was that the respondents felt Nokia mobiles were overpriced. The after-sales service of Nokia was regarded as excellent by the respondents. User-friendly interfaces of mobiles and brand name were the top most factors for buying a Nokia Mobile. Although the study has its own limitations, the study has helped make a set of recommendations for Nokia India to sustain its market leadership position in India. Nokia was taken over by Microsoft on april 2014 , apart from its plant layout in Chennai as it faces income tax problem in India
  • 5. - 4 - | P a g e INTRODUCTION 1.1 About Nokia Vision “A world where everyone is connected” Nokia history in mobile handsets Nokia has a long history of successful change and innovation, adapting to shifts in markets and technologies. From its humble beginning with one paper mill, the company has participated in many sectors over time: cables, paper products, tires, rubber boots, consumer and industrial electronics, plastics, chemicals, telecommunications infrastructure and more. Most recently, Nokia has been best known for its revolutionary wireless communication technologies, which have connected billions of people through networks and mobile phones. Nokia’s history dates back to 1865, when mining engineer Fredrik Idestam set up his first wood pulp mill at the Tammerkoski Rapids in Southwestern Finland. A few years later he opened a second mill on the banks of the Nokianvirta river, inspiring him to name his company Nokia Ab in 1871. In 1967, we took our current form as Nokia Corporation as a result of the merger of Idestam’s Nokia AB, Finnish Rubber Works, a manufacturer of rubber boots, tires and other rubber products founded in 1898, and Finnish Cable Works Ltd, a manufacturer of telephone and power cables founded in 1912. The new Nokia Corporation had five businesses: rubber, cable, forestry, electronics and power generation. Nokia first entered the telecommunications equipment market in 1960 when an electronics department was established at Finnish Cable Works to concentrate on the production of radio-transmission equipment. Regulatory and technological reforms have played a role in our success. Deregulation of the European telecommunications industries since the late 1980s has stimulated competition and boosted customer demand. In 1982, we introduced the first fully-digital local telephone exchange in Europe, and, in the same year, the world’s first car phone for the Nordic Mobile Telephone analog standard. The technological breakthrough of GSM, which made more efficient use of frequencies and had greater capacity in addition to high-quality sound, was followed by the European resolution in 1987 to adopt GSM as the European digital standard by July 1, 1991. The first GSM call was made with a Nokia phone over the Nokia-built network of
  • 6. a Finnish operator called Radiolinja in 1991, and in the same year Nokia won contracts to supply GSM networks in other European countries. In the early 1990s, we made a strategic decision to make telecommunications our core business, with the goal of establishing leadership in every major global market. Basic industry and non-telecommunications operations—including paper, personal computer, rubber, footwear, chemicals, power plant, cable, aluminum and television businesses— were divested between 1989 and 1996. By 1998, Nokia was the world leader in mobile phones, a position it enjoyed for more than a decade. In 2006, Nokia, which had already been investing in its mapping capabilities for many years, acquired Gate5, a mapping software specialist, and then in 2008 NAVTEQ, the US-based maker of digital mapping and navigational software. Today, Nokia offers leading location services through the HERE business and brand, launched in 2012. In 2007, Nokia combined its telecoms infrastructure operations with those of Siemens to form a joint venture named Nokia Siemens Networks. NSN has become a leading global provider of telecommunications infrastructure, with a focus on offering innovative mobile broadband technology and services. In 2011, Nokia joined forces with Microsoft to strengthen its position in the highly competitive smartphone market. Nokia adopted the Windows Phone operating system for smart devices and through their strategic partnership Nokia and Microsoft set about establishing an alternative ecosystem to rival iOS and Android. In 2011, Nokia also started to make a number of changes to its operations and company culture that would in the course of the next two years lead to shortened product development times, improved product quality and better responsiveness to market demand. In 2013, Nokia moved to reinvent itself with two transformative transactions. The first was the purchase of Siemens’ stake in NSN, which was nearing the end of a deep restructuring and remarkable transformation. The second was the announcement of the sale of substantially all of Nokia’s Devices & Services business to Microsoft. The Microsoft transaction was originally announced on September 3, 2013 and was completed on April 25, 2014. Following the closing of the transaction, Nokia announced its new vision and strategy, building on its three strong businesses; Nokia Networks, HERE, and Nokia Technologies. - 5 - | P a g e

These systems can track customer analysis by customer clicks and sales. Places where CRM is used include call centers, social media, direct mail, data storage files, banks, and customer data queries. Characteristics of customer relationship management(CRM) The following are general guidelines on implementing a CRM system.  Make a strategic decision on what problems you want your CRM system to address, what improvements or changes it should bring in the business processes of the organization.  Choose an appropriate project manager. Typically IT will be engaged, however a manager with a customer service/sales and marketing business focus should be involved, as the impact of the project will be mainly on the business side.  Ensure executive sponsorship and top management support.  Empower team members with the required authority to complete the tasks.  Select the correct implementation partner. They must have both vertical and horizontal business knowledge, as well as technical expertise.  Define KPI's that will measure the project's success.  Use a phased approach. Work towards long-term enterprise-scale implementation through a series of smaller, phased implementations
  • 11. - 10 - | P a g e Features of Customer Relationship Management Customer-centric relationship management is used in marketing, customer service and sales, including:  tailored marketing  one-to-one customer service  retaining customers  building brand loyalty  providing information customers actually want  Subscription billing  Rewards 3.2 The Benefits of CRM The biggest benefit most businesses realize when moving to a CRM system comes directly from having all your business data stored and accessed from a single location. Before CRM systems, customer data was spread out over office productivity suite documents, email systems, mobile phone data and even paper note cards and Rolodex entries. Storing all the data from all departments (e.g., sales, marketing, customer service and HR) in a central location gives management and employees immediate access to the most recent data when they need it. Departments can collaborate with ease, and CRM systems help organization to develop efficient automated processes to improve business processes. Other benefits include a 360-degree view of all customer information, knowledge of what customers and the general market want, and integration with your existing applications to consolidate all business information. 3.3 CRM in business to business The modern environment requires one business to interact with another via the web. According to a Sweeney Group definition, CRM is “all the tools, technologies and procedures to manage, improve, or facilitate sales, support and related interactions with customers, prospects, and business partners throughout the enterprise”.It assumes that CRM is involved in every B2B transaction.[
  • 12. Despite the general notion that CRM systems were created for the customer-centric businesses, they can also be applied to B2B environments to streamline and improve customer management conditions. B2C and B2B CRM systems are not created equally and different CRM software applies to B2B and Business-to-Customer (B2C) conditions. B2B relationships usually have longer maturity times than B2C relationships. For the best level of CRM operation in a B2B environment, the software must be personalized and delivered at individual levels. - 11 - | P a g e 3.4 CRM in business to customers While business-to-consumer activity exists both online and offline, the acronym B2C has primarily been used to describe the online variety. B2C businesses played a large role in the rapid development of the commercial Internet in the 1990s. Large sums of venture capital flowed to consumers in the form of free online services and discounted shopping, spurring adoption of the new medium. When the capital markets turned sour, however, the B2C companies were among the first to fall, and they fell fast. Many companies tried to follow the herd of investors by undergoing a B2C to B2B makeover. For awhile after the .com bubble, B2C was used infrequently except when it was followed by "…is dead." However, some analysts still predicted that consumer businesses would thrive online, just not in they way everyone initially predicted. 3.5 Nokia India Nokia has played a pioneering role in the growth of cellular technology in India, starting with the first-ever cellular call a decade ago, made on a Nokia mobile phone over a Nokia-deployed network.
