Medi Instruments Ltd. Is a company dealing in the distribution of medical instruments. The company recently imported 15000 units of sugar testing machines to test the sugar levels without taking blood samples. For deciding the marketing strategy, the Chief Executive Officer of the company called a meeting of the marketing heads of different zones. In the meeting, Samjay, the North Zone Marketing Head, suggested that since the machines were sophisticated they need to visit hospitals personally to explain its working to the hospital staff who would be using the machines, He also suggested that additional trained people may be recruited for the same. Hitesh, another Zonal Head, added that since lot of money had been spent on the import of the machines, the company was short of funds to pay the additional staff, as suggested by Sanjay. Revansh, a newly appointed Zonal Head of South Zone, suggested that since the size of the order was not large, a detailed study of the factors determining the choice of channels of distribution was required before making the right choice.

i. Product related factors- ‘Machines were sophisticated they need to visit hospitals personally to explain its working to the hospital staff who would be using the machines.’
ii. Company characteristics- ‘The company was short of funds to pay the additional staff.’
iii. Market factors- “Size of the order was not large.’
(b) i. Product-related factors- Machines are complex products requiring technical details. Thus, shorter channels would be more suitable.
ii. Company characteristics- There financial strength of the company determines the channel of distribution used by it. Shorter channels of distribution require greater funds. However, in the given case, the company is short of funds and thus would opt for indirect channels of distribution.
iii. Market factors- The size of the order determines the choice of channels of distribution which the company opts. Since the size of the order is not large, the company should go for large number of intermediaries.
