Generic Benchmarking Worksheet Task A: Problem/Opportunity Statement Natalia Eaddy: How TeraTech can maxamize there profits by appealing to customers demand and cater to there market segment . Theresa Hewston: TeraTech will develop a competitive business approach that ensures they lead the market in advanced technology products, maintain customer relationships, and provide growth opportunities to meet consumer demands by enhancing the company’s production, inventory, distribution, and customer service efficiency, which will optimize company resources and wealth. Tammy Wortherley: TeraTech faces the inherent desire to reduce costs and develop a methodical product that will satisfy their consumer foundation. Horatio Ward : TeraTech will develop advanced analytical products which will enhance the way CRM data is received, delivered, and analyzed in the pharmaceutical industry.

T-Mobile’s competitors, like TeraTech, are a little behind their competition but with the right direction at the end, they will win over new ideas with loyal customers and word of mouth will allow them to gain new ones.
