One of India’s fastest-growing mobile phone & tech retailers

With over 300 experience stores, Poojara Telecom is one of the fastest-growing tech retailers in the Indian state of Gujarat. They have recently expanded in states of, Maharashtra, and Rajasthan. Founded in 1994, the company specializes in the mobile phone market which remains its primary focus today. This is a dynamic sector, and in response to changing market conditions, the business has expanded into other categories and regions.


Supporting strategic and tactical decision-making

Working in an increasingly competitive and fast-moving sector, Poojara’s challenge was to source a market intelligence and insights partner that could inform and support its growth-led strategic decisions such as category and portfolio planning, promotions, and the location of new stores.

In 2020, the company partnered with GfK for its monthly point-of-sales reporting and quickly embraced the data and insight from the team. Having been convinced by the strategic value of the monthly sales data to the business, Poojara initiated active utilization of GfK’s weekly sales data.

The addition of seven-day sales reporting supported tactical decisions on cross-category promotions and pricing in particular. Today, the C-Suite uses this intelligence to evaluate the impact of new product launches, discounts, and special offers on particular SKUs and specific models in order to adjust them rapidly to maximize shopper demand.

  • The actions of consumers have the power to either make or break a retailer‘s success, as they search for the most cost-effective option, the most in-demand gadgets, or the fastest resolution to their issues to make their life easy. It is business-critical for us to understand evolving consumer behavior. Our relationship with GfK ensures we always have the latest insights and intelligence to inform and innovate our offering to cater to the needs of our target audience and continue to grow our business."
