2.9 Ansoff Matrix for iPay Systems Limited

 

Here
is the penetration, product development, market development, and
diversification strategy of iPay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Penetration:

 

When
marketers try to sell the existing product to the existing customers, they
engage in penetration strategy. It can be achieved in multiple ways. For
example, by changing pricing, by adding minor features, changing the packaging
or highlighting alternative uses. In iPay, when we pitch a customer or a
merchant to sign up for an iPay e-wallet for conducting daily transaction with
their own smartphone, we encourage them the benefits of digital payment
ecosystem which provides strong authenticity of every transaction taking place
and maintains complete date of each penny transacted. We try to encourage our
client’s to start using a digital payment platform by using different media.

 

 

Product
Development:

 

We
have developed a digital payment platform for day-to-day transaction and we
know that the platform we are using is different and it needs regular
development and ensure strongest security, so we have to research and develop
our service according to changes need.

 

 

Market
Development:

 

Introducing
an existing product in different markets is perhaps one of the most used
strategies to extract full benefit of a successful service. A very common
example is entering the service in different geographical areas nationally and
internationally. The digital payment platform

of online payment platform in Bangladesh by promoting the service with the help
