  19. 19. INTERNAL MARKETING INFORMATION • The most basic information system used by marketing managers is the internal records system. • They include detailed reports on orders, sales, prices, inventory levels, receivables, payables and so on . • By analysing this information, marketing managers can spot important opportunities and problems. • All enterprises which have been in operation for any period of time have a wealth of information. However this information often remains underutilised because it is compartmentalised, either in the form of an individual entrepreneur or in the functional departments of larger businesses. 19
  20. 20. MARKETING INTELLIGENCE SYSTEM • Marketing intelligence is the systematic collection and analysis of publicly available information about competitors and developments in the marketing environment. • A MIS is a set of procedures and sources used by managers to obtain their everyday information about relevant developments n the marketing environment. • The scanning of the economic and business environment can be undertaken ina variety of ways, including: 20 Unfocussed scanning Semi-focused scanning Informal search Formal search
  21. 21. MARKETING RESEARCH • Marketing research is the third component of MIS. • Marketing research is the systematic design, collection, analysis and reporting of data and findings relevant to a specific marketing situation facing the company. • Marketing research is only a part of MIS, while MIS is an ongoing system • Thus, MIS is a wider concept than marketing research. 21
  22. 22. ANALYSIS AND PROCESSING OF INFORMATION • Within the MIS there has to be the means of interpreting information in order to give direction to decision. These models may be computerised or may not. Typical tools are: • Time series sales models • Brand switching models • Linear programming • Elasticity models • Regression and correlation models • Discounted cashflow • These are similar mathematical, statistical, econometric and financial models are the analytical sub-system of the MIS. A relatively modest investment in a desktop computer is enough to allow an enterprise to automate the analysis of its data. 22
