    I need assistance with the following

    Select a company that you think has a good strategy for developing relationships with their customers. I have selected Wal-Mart. Describe and critique the company's strategy for developing relationships with customers. The critique should begin with a discussion of the programs that are currently in place. At a minimum, consider policies for:

    - Handling customer complaints
    - Providing information about new or existing products
    - Placing orders
    - Receiving any other feedback from customers
    - Tracking an order

    The analysis should then discuss what is good about the policies and what needs to be improved. The final section should include recommendations for improvements. Using the appropriate strategies discuss how the company can build customer relationships and / or capture value from customers. Suggest strategies that are not already in use.

It sells in three months what number-two retailer Home Depot sells in a year. And in its own category of general merchandise and groceries, Wal-Mart no longer has any real rivals.
