3 Prospective buyers seek out exchanges that meet their needs in one or more types of utility. Choose two direct competitors and evaluate their respective offers in terms of the five types of utility. Imagine you have been hired as a consultant for one of the companies. How should the company improve the utilities provided by its offer to better meet prospective customer needs?
