In the first part of 2005, Tina Reynolds, VP of sales at Cabo San Viejo Health Resort, was considering adopting a loyalty rewards program, to meet the competition and increase sales. Several guests left comments highlighting the absence of a loyalty program for repeat guests. Tina Reynolds also noticed the importance of attracting younger customers who grew up in a culture "accustomed to rewards programs". The basis for a rewards program was even if the program did not directly lead to new customers, existing customers would feel more appreciated, and in turn be more likely to recommend Cabo San Viejo to others. Reynolds also knew that there could be several implications with implementing a rewards program.
Cabo San Viejo guests always expected the best, and if a rewards program was not implemented to perfection, the idea could certainly backfire. Since Cabo San Viejo's computer system was outdated and not fit to save customer data, there would be costs associated with the update. In addition, Cabo employees have already been trained to offer the highest level of customer service. The addition of a rewards program would increase the strain on the staff and possibly increase turnover. The low turnover of the staff was part of what made the experience great for customers. The staff was well trained and Cabo relied on employee dedication to achieve high levels of customer satisfaction. 50-60% of Cabo's business was based on repeat customers. If new guests felt shorted because of advantages given to repeat customers, reservations could possibly decline.
In order to achieve the best possible sales, Cabo San Viejo should not implement a rewards program. The optimal capacity for Cabo San Viejo is 270 guests per night. Since the average guest stays 1 week, the optimal capacity would be approximately 14,040 guests per year. Per exhibit 8, Cabo San Viejo only…...

San Group

...Kinship The nuclear family is one type of kinship it is the most common type of family in the foraging societies. A nuclear family is composed of a mother, father and their children. In these families there is prohibition to marry any relative who is a second cousin or closer. In these societies they are connected in what they called a ring. In this ring there is what they call headmen or, which less common head women are. The headmen have no power to force people to do anything. The primary role of a headmen is to help the group decide where to hunt, gather or reside. In the San group women do up to 80% of the foraging for food with is nuts, fruits, melons and berries. The males are to get 20 % of the food and its meat that they bring to the table. In these nomadic type societies they move to get to the water because they live in the desert. This is a weakness and strength to be able to move at any moment to save your band but where to go is a big problem that sometimes causes them to lose their headsmen. Due to different ideas that could break up bands to for smaller bands and as everyone knows the more gatherers you have a better chance you have to get everything that you need to survive the desert heat and lack of constant water. In our societies we have family’s that we depend on the mothers in our nucleus family more than the fathers for the day to day living and the man is to make the money and bring home the living for the family. But as all societies change so......

San Kinship

...San Kinship Organization Kaleb Michaels ANT 101 March 1, 2013 The San of Southwest Africa, located in the Kalahari Desert have a very basic yet powerful kinship within their culture and sub cultures. The entire culture is based on living harmoniously with each member or kin of the band as well as with nature. The very core of survival for the San is to take care and support their fellow kin. Having been around for thousands of years, they are the true meaning of the word community. They rely on this to be successful and to thrive as a culture. As the text book states: “Among foraging cultures, for example, high value is placed on working together and sharing, as opposed to competing with others to secure individual wealth.” Nowak, B. & Laird, P. (2010). The very survival of this culture is to rely on one another when it comes to the task of providing food for one’s family. However, the San are also known as the “original affluent society”. The culture forages together, taking and using the resources that they need to sustain life. This leaves them with plenty of time to socialize with members of their culture as well as indulge in day to day things that they enjoy to do. One of the things that make this culture very unique is their system of reciprocity that is used between kin and other bands. Because the San do not build storage units for harvests and game hunted, everything they acquire must be used. ......

The San

...The San ANT 101 Bruce Carruthers 16 July 2012 Kinship is an important part of survival, especially for foraging societies. Foraging, or hunting and gathering, is the oldest form of human society. The San, or “Bushman”, are one of the most known communities and they date back thousands of years. I will identify and describe the kinship system of the San, and I will describe how the culture is impacted by their kinship. Last, I will compare the San to my own society and the impact kinship has in my own life. The San have many kinship systems that are important to insure their continued existence. I will discuss the kinship system as it is related to food, conflict, and marriage. The San are hunters and gathers and food is part of surviving. The San follow a form of exchange in which no tabs are kept, or generalized reciprocity (Nowak & Laird, 2010). This means that all the food is collected and distributed equally through out the group. This means that no one will go hungry. This has a lot of impact on their culture as well. It prevents an excess of wealth, so no one is rich or poor. It insures everyone is healthy and reinforces social ties with their kin. “Kinship is the central organizing principle” (Nowak & Laird, 2010, Managing conflict, para. 1). There is limited property and everyone shares food so there are limited major conflicts among the San. Since the San’s kinships are so strong, arguments are the extent of their conflict...

San Fabian Supply Chain

...El caso plantea la disyuntiva de San Fabian Supply Company en cuanto a la definición de su plan de acción para su línea de productos MacDowell, de origen canadiense, de la cual tiene la distribución exclusiva en Filipinas. Concretamente, en setiembre de 1987 y tras 19 años de relación contractual, la empresa MacDowell notifica a San Fabian la intención de cancelar el acuerdo de distribución exclusiva mantenido por ambas partes, modificando de esta manera el diseño de su canal de distribución con el objetivo de intensificar la cobertura de sus productos en el mercado (léase, anchura del canal). De esta manera, MacDowell abandonaría su sistema de distribución indirecto, y pasaría a un sistema de distribución más directo, acortando de esta manera la longitud de sus canales. Estaríamos pues ante una integración de tipo vertical. El presente informe tiene como objeto entonces proveer a la empresa San Sebastián de una serie de alternativas y recomendaciones a considerar a los efectos de definir si continúa trabajando con MacDowell, y, en dicho caso, bajo qué condiciones. Como dato introductorio, queremos hacer un énfasis en la importancia que tienen los canales de distribución y la forma en que estos se diseñan. Los motivos son varios, pero los más relevantes incluyen el efecto que estos tienen en la estrategia comercial del fabricante (precios, publicidad, promociones) y la dificultad que implica establecer relaciones comerciales que, por lo general, son sumamente......

San Antonio Transportation Case Study

...a little more than a minute was established not to long ago, but the streetcar has actually been around since the late 1890’s. They have been around since and are still one of the most effective ways of getting large amount of people anywhere in the city. That is only a few of the benefits it contains. One of the most prestigious and most known streetcar networks is that of the city of San Francisco, in California. The streetcars have added to the cities identity and when San Francisco is mentioned people tend to automatically think streetcars/cable cars. San Francisco’s streetcar network can carry more than 13,000 passengers per hour during rush hour and 173,000 passengers on the weekdays. Ed Reiskin, the SFMTA Director of Transportation adds on to the statement about, the amount of people who ride the streetcars, by saying, “This goes to show that while people come from all over the world to ride these vehicles, there are thousands of San Franciscans who rely on this line for their daily commute.” Showing that maybe without this streetcar network, the city would not flow so effectively. San Francisco has embraced the popularity that they have with the streetcars and it still has been and still provides beneficial dividends for the city and the people. A city that is in the works of rebuilding a streetcar network is Washington D.C. As a city that is growing in population each year, this network system of transportation would allow the city traffic flow of people to......
