...1. Describe the type of supply chain used by 7-Eleven. For example are they agile, adaptable, aligned? 7-Eleven is the largest operator and franchisor of convenience stores in the world, with more than 46,000 outlets and currently selling 500 million litres of petrol, $500 million of merchandise and serving almost 80 million customers worldwide. With figures like this, you have to wonder how they did it? Aside from the fact that the store operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and hence adhere to the ‘convenience store’ label, 7-Eleven addressed some key aspects that often other organisations overlook. “We must be open to change to remain successful,” said7-Eleven CEO Joe DePinto (and recent “Undercover Boss”) at the conclusion of his Tuesday morning keynote address at the IFA 2011 Annual Convention. Noticing a need to change, 7-Eleven turned their whole outlook around, focusing on the franchisees instead of focusing on the headquarters of the organisation. After all, the franchisees are the ones that work at ground level with customers on a day to day basis, establishing relationships and recognising customer needs. 7-Elevens response to a changing marketplace yielded significant benefits and further more allowed the implementation of technology and supply chain integration to increase functionality. An efficient supply chain maximises planning, organising and helps distribute a flow of the organisations product to end customers. This is done through implementing......

...Case Study 7-Eleven, Inc. Complete Lifecycle Management, Secure Access to Critical Information, and Improvements in Productivity 7-Eleven is the world’s largest convenience retail chain — operating, franchising and licensing more than 7,000 stores in the United States and Canada. One of the challenges facing 7-Eleven was their inability to provide store operators, franchisees, store managers, as well as corporate employees with timely access to the critical business information — financial, inventory, gas, payroll, human resources, and more— required to effectively operate their business. 7-Eleven needed to provide this important business content securely, accurately, timely and most of all affordably from both inside and outside 7-Eleven. With the Systemware solution, critical information is stored, managed and always available without any boundaries. So not only did 7-Eleven store managers as well as corporate users gain secure access to critical business information, but they also now have a flexible tool to create custom reports allowing them to address specific business needs and reporting requirements. Today, 7-Eleven no longer prints and mails reporting information to their locations resulting in the ability to make better business decisions, realize significant cost savings, and an increase in productivity. The Challenge • • Their old COBOL-based system had very limited storage capabilities as well as required labor intensive processes to change and add reports...

...7-ELEVEN HOW TO TRUN THE SITUATION AROUND In April, 2011. Allen Zhang, the 7-eleven’s Chief Operator of Eastern Market in China, was standing in front of the window of his office. He was called into deep thought by the dilemma facing the company. On the video conferencing just held, headquarter in Taiwan was very dissatisfied with the poor performance of the branch office in Shanghai, which runs counter to its expectations. Allen looked at the crowded street. He found that the only 7-eleven convenience store on the street was besieged by two FamilyMart stores that were filled with customers. He couldn’t help wondering: What’s wrong with the company’s strategy that was so successful in such overseas markets as Japan, Taiwan, and US, but failed the competition in Shanghai? What contributes to the competitor’s success? Is it because the voluntary chain style that FmailyMart adopts is superior than the regular chain style that 7-eleven adopts in Shanghai? If 7-eleven were to open its market by changing the regular chain style to voluntary chain style, would it turn the situation around or would it evoke new problems? Obsessed with all of these questions, Allen realized that it is time for some changes for the company to achieve its initial goals and as the big market share as possible in this promising market. CONTEXT THE CVS (CONVENIENT STORE) INDUSTRY The prosperity of the convenient stores is because supermarkets are almost all of large scales and in the......

Improvement of 7-Eleven

...improvement 7 eleven takes high margins which means the items sell in the outlets are slightly expensive compare to price in supermarket. (Paradise, 2104) The weakness of 7 eleven is because high employee turnover rate. Even 7 eleven is well known, many of the employees turn out the job was working with 7 eleven requires them to work in the shift which is in the morning or at night. Moreover, most of the employees quit the jobs because they want to find a more stale job as they take this as a part-time job (Paradise, 2014) Furthermore, the weakness has in 7 eleven is limited assortment offering. You might find the items you need but you can have only small choices as 7 eleven does not provide all the brands that people want. (Paradise, 2014) On top of that, 7 eleven is not a first choice for shoppers that makes it one of the weakness. For sure people will go to supermarkets or a bigger store to buy groceries or any of the daily needs as they can have more choices and stronger power of purchase (paradise, 2014) Increase in competition is a great threat to 7 Eleven. Also, with the increasing high levels of educated people, consumers are now more skeptics and are more demanding. In addition, the traditional markets in which people can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables are still in its popularity in Malaysia. Moreover, 7-Eleven has high employee turnover which is a sign of bad management....

First, the company’s marketing strategy in the united state will be discussed. And then 7- Eleven’s market entry strategy in Taiwan will be focused on. Thirdly, marketing mix about 7-Eleven Taiwan will be analyzed deeply and critically. Last, some minor suggestion will be given to make 7-Elevendeveloped better in the further. The marketing strategy in the United States is innovative and unique. A tits initial stage, the decisive factors for this company’s success are that7-Eleven launched an innovative store and service in the United States and then entered into this “Blue Ocean”. As we can see, in 1940s, the concept of convenience store was challenging because shopping in convenience store is new and unfamiliar consumer behaviour for American people. As a store, it sells convenient service more than its product. So this is an innovative marketing segmentation. Moreover, the convenience store can meet the unsatisfied demand in American market. At the second stage, when the store expanded over its original market into other districts in America, the company took the standardization of business format, including the logo, location, store’s layout and merchandising...

7-Eleven in Taiwan

...7-Eleven in Taiwan: Adaptation of convenient stores to new market environments – CASE – 1. How has the convenience-store concept evolved in the United States? The convenience store concept began when an enterprising employee of one of Tote’ms stores (now 7-Eleven), began offering milk, bread and eggs on Sundays. Customers found the service very convenient, thus the stores started opening for extended hours (from 7 am to 11pm) and therefore the name changed to 7-Eleven. In 1962, the stores started opening 24 hours 7 days a week, and this became increasingly popular due to the new working schedules of Americans. More than 10 million people in the U.S. were awake at 3 am, 7 million of whom were employed in some kind of work. This new American work style needed exactly what 7-Eleven was offering: a convenient store open at all times, offering fresh-high quality products and services at everyday fair prices, speedy transactions and a clean environment. 2. Is the concept universal across countries, including Taiwan? The concept of convenience stores follows similar lines in different countries outside the United States. In 1969, 7-Eleven opened its first international store and from them on, the company followed a successful global expansion that seemed to follow positive trends despite the local competition. Wherever a franchisee opened a 7-Eleven store, they had to follow some norms that the Americans found to be very important in representing its brand like the logo...

Their perishable products available are prepared fresh every day for people to have a quick bite and proceed with take away (Paradise, 2014). 7 Eleven targets the young adults and youngsters who are up late night or come late back from work. To attract the family or the older generation they come with freebies and discounts, mostly changing every week. The trend of giving away freebies is increasing and they have realized that even if people don’t use it, they like to be given a chance of getting that freebie. 7 Eleven is that store where you can stop at point in the night and get basic necessities (Paradise, 2014). For 7 Eleven convenience is always on the top. That’s why the locations all around the nation is very high. This helps them negotiate supportive pricing and conditions that let 7 eleven franchises to impose such high prices and......
