Here’s how realty developers can adapt to changing times and make their services more customer-centric

In the realty sector, adopting a customer-centric approach is always the key to thrive. Since customers are the ones investing their money, their demand should be kept at the utmost priority. A customer-centric service will make them feel like their needs are being understood and well taken care of.

Earlier, the only challenge faced was the timely completion of projects, hence it was always about the asset itself. However, with the increase in customer knowledge, backed by digitization, the real estate industry is now inclining towards a more customer-centric model.

Listed below are the key areas you need to work on to make your company services more customer-centric.

Thorough Knowledge

Despite being a professional in the realty industry, some real estate executives lack proper knowledge of the market trends and customer needs. On that note, top builders in Hyderabad, Modi Builders believe that with all the information customers gather from the internet these days, real estate executives have to ensure that they are always way ahead of them in terms of knowledge.

Transparency

Customers usually hesitate while investing a hefty amount in the real estate, the reason being the non-transparency by realtors. Hence, it becomes important that realtors maintain their credibility by being transparent. From client meeting, home tours, deal closure to the final payment, developers are required to be honest and share all the needed information to build clients’ trust.

Availability

Furthermore, customers expect developers to be available for addressing any query.  Even though one might not have the time to attend each and every call of the customers 24/7 at times, small things like returning phone calls, reverting back to email on time, being punctual on appointments and meetings and responding promptly to the customer queries are some of the factors that can help you build your credibility.  A satisfied customer is likely to bring in references as well, thus proving beneficial for the business.

The customer policies of some of the top builders in Hyderabad like Modi Builders tend to conclude on similar lines.  These include fostering trust-based relationships with customers, being courteous while dealing with them, striving to surpass the client’ expectations and giving post-investment feedback.

Since customers are the main drivers of the realty industry, prioritizing their needs and adopting a customer-centric approach can lead to an exponential growth of the organization and the entire sector altogether.

Top location-based corporates that are reckoned when it comes to roaring success

The history and origins of famous location-based company names – Nowrosjee Wadia-led Bombay Dyeing, Mahimananda Mishra-led OSL Group and MP Ahammed-led Malabar Gold & Diamonds.

What’s in a name? Well, a lot of emotions and a ‘make or break’ deal for a brand at times. While some brands have been named after their owners, a few might have a hidden meaning behind their names. However, it takes a lot for a brand to be synonymous with its place of origin. It certainly isn’t an ordinary feat when a whole community identifies and connects with a brand name that has surprising geographic roots.

Let’s delve into the origin of these brand names that have had the privilege of becoming synonymous with their place of origin.

Bombay Dyeing

Founded by Nowrosjee Wadia, Bombay Dyeing has established itself as one of the country’s most respected and trusted brands. As the name suggests, it was founded in Mumbai (earlier Bombay) in 1879 and has scaled great heights since then. The brand has not just thrived in terms of success but also in what all it offers. 

Orissa Stevedores Limited (OSL Group)

When it comes to India’s cargo sector, a prominent name that comes up is the OSL Group. Led by Mahimananda Mishra, it is counted among the leading stevedoring companies in the country. With a strong presence in Odisha, Mahimananda Mishra comes across as a leader who revolutionized the lives of several workers in Paradip Port and has always stood by them like the head of the family. This happens to be one of the major reasons behind the dominance of OSL Group across the state of Odisha.

Tata Steel Ltd

A name that needs no introduction, Tata Steel Ltd was established in Jamshedpur (also known as Tatanagar). Home to the leading subsidiaries of Tata Group – Tata Motors and Tata Steel, Jamshedpur was founded by Jamsetji Tata in the 1990s and hence was named after him.

Anand Milk Union Ltd (Amul)

Headquartered at Anand in the Indian state of Gujarat, Amul was founded with an aim to put an end to the exploitation of marginal milk producers and farmers by middlemen in small cities. It is managed by a cooperative body named Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd. Attaining significant success over the years, the brand has a strong presence in around 50 countries today.

Malabar Gold & Diamonds

One of the largest chains of jewellery stores in the world, Malabar Gold & Diamonds is an empire built on integrity and goodwill. Headquartered in Kerala, it was incepted in the year 1993 by MP Ahammed. Historically, the term Malabar Coast was used for India’s southwestern coast, which lies on the narrow coastal plain of Karnataka and Kerala states between the Western Ghats range and the Arabian Sea.

The stories of these brand names illustrate how that two-way relationship between a brand and a city’s name has worked throughout history. The immense contribution and success of these business entities certainly make them the worthy recipient of the stature and privilege they are bestowed with. 

16 years of Indian Ocean tsunami: What India has learnt

The Sumatra earthquake and tsunami are considered to be an eye-opener for India as it introduced the Indian coastline to tsunami and its destructible power.

December 26 marks the 16th anniversary of the massive Indian Ocean tsunami. On this day, a 100-foot high tsunami triggered by an earthquake of magnitude 9.1, one of the largest ever recorded, from under the Indian Ocean killed more than 230,000 people in South Asia. With the epicentre near Sumatra, Indonesia, the earthquake triggered a tsunami that hit Thailand, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia.

A tsunami researcher and forecaster with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Center for Tsunami Research, Vasily Titov cites the destructive capacity of the 2004 tsunami to the earthquake in the megathrust fault, ‘where heavy oceanic plates subduct beneath lighter continental plates’. “They are the largest faults in the world and they’re all underwater,” History reported him saying. He added that the tsunami waves could be seen like a large pebble falling in the ocean causing mega ripples.

The Sumatra earthquake and tsunami are considered to be an eye-opener for India as it introduced the Indian coastline to tsunami and its destructible power. Learning from the unprecedented natural disaster that led to such heavy damage to life and property, the Ministry of Earth founded the Indian Tsunami Early Warning System (ITEWS) at Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Hyderabad in October 2007.

Scientists in India are now able to predict and project movements in Indian ocean through real-time seismic monitoring with Bottom Pressure Recorders (BPR), tide gauges and 24×7 operational tsunami warning system to detect tsunamigenic earthquakes as to provide early advisories to the most vulnerable.

A community performance-based programme known as Tsunami Ready has also been started by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO to promote tsunami preparedness by actively involving the public, community leaders, and national and local emergency management agencies. As part of the UNESCO-IOC framework, the ITEWC now offers advisories to all Indian Ocean rim countries.

India is the first country to establish an early warning system for tsunami detection, while Odisha is the first state in the country to get Tsunami Ready recognition.

Rajinikanth entry in politics | The politician in waiting

Rajinikanth’s entry may shake up Tamil Nadu parties and alliances as they prepare for the Tamil Nadu polls due in five months.

Chennai: 

Superstar Rajinikanth on Thursday sprung a surprise by announcing his decision to join politics just weeks after he talked about being advised by doctors that his health may not be up to the challenge. 

“I am willing to sacrifice my life for the sake of Tamil people,” the 69-year-old announced with a dramatic mix of idealism, daring, sacrifice and emotion befitting the “Thalaiva (leader)” of movies.

Even after Rajinikanth met with district secretaries of his Rajini Makkal Mandram on Monday, not many were hopeful. When he sought more time, they thought their leader was setting them up for disappointment.

But Rajinikanth has played the “will he, won’t he” game too long. Some believe it may be too late in the day, given his age and health.

Given the right circumstances, Rajinikanth’s entry may shake up Tamil Nadu parties and alliances as they prepare for the Tamil Nadu polls due in five months.

The veteran is seen to be close to the BJP’s ideology. “Rajinikanth’s views are similar to the BJP’s. We would appeal to him to support us,” said BJP spokesperson Narayanan Thirupathi.

Rajinikanth has always denied leaning towards the BJP though his statements in support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policies suggested otherwise.

Last year, days after the government ended special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Rajinikanth compared PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to “Krishna and Arjun” from the Mahabharata. In February, he backed the Citizenship Amendment Act.

While many accuse him of soft Hindutva, Rajinikanth has tried to make a clear distinction, saying his party is beyond caste, creed and religion and he will practise “spiritual” politics. His supporters say this means his party will appeal to people of all castes and religions.

At 69, can Rajinikanth pull off an NTR?

NTR or NT Rama Rao, was a mega star before he joined politics in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh. He launched his political party in 1982 and months later, he became Chief Minister at the age of 59.

In Tamil Nadu, which has always seen rivals AIADMK and DMK dominating elections, and where caste plays a huge role, where does Rajinikanth stand with his yet-to-be launched party and a pledge to steer clear of caste, creed or religion?

The dominant castes in the state already have their champions — the Gounders have Chief Minister E Palanisami of the AIADMK, the Thevars have Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, the Vanniyars have Ramadoss and the scheduled castes have the VCK (Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi).

Fans do not necessarily convert into party cadre. The appeal of the ageless superstar would be as a face around which people can be mobilized. Without a larger organisational structure, he will find it hard to fight and win elections on his own.
