Over 38 yearsago, Peter Dhuker observed that a company’s first task is “Tocreate customers” However, customers face a vast array ofproducts and brand choices, price & suppliers. How do theymake their choices? We believe that our customers estimate which offerwill deliver the most value. Customer are value maximizeswithin the bounds rich costs & limited knowledge, whetheror not the offer lives up to value expectation affects bothsatisfaction and repurchase probability.Customer Perceived Value: Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com - 27 -
    • CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AT BASAVESHWARA MOTORS Our premise is that customer will buy from the firmthat they see as offering the highest perceived value.Customer perceived value (CPV) is the difference betweenthe prospective customers evaluation of all the benefits andall the costs of an offering & the perceived alternatives. Totalcustomer value is the perceived monetary value of the bundleof economic, functional & psychological benefits customersexpect from a given market offering. Total customers cost is the bundle of costs customersexpect to incur in evaluating, obtaining, using & disposing ofthe given market offering.Total Customer Satisfaction: Whether the buyer is satisfied after the purchasedepends on the offer’s performance in relation to the buyer’sexpectations. In, general satisfaction is a person’s feeling ofpleasure or disappointment resulting from compiling aproduct’s perceived performance (or outcome) in relation tohis or her expectations. If the performance falls short ofexpectations, performance matches the expectations, thecustomer is satisfied. If the performance exceedsexpectations, the customer is highly satisfied or delighted Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com - 28 -
    • CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AT BASAVESHWARA MOTORS The link between customer satisfaction and customerloyalty is not proportional. Suppose customer satisfaction israted on a scale from one to five. At a very low level ofcustomer satisfaction (level one), customers are likely toabandon the company and even bad mouth it. At levels twoto four, customers are fairly satisfied but still find it easy toswitch when a better offer comes along. At level five, thecustomer is very likely to repurchase & even spread goodword or delight creators an emotional bond with the brand orcompany not just a rational preference. Measuring satisfaction although the customer centeredfirm seek to create high customer satisfaction, that is not itsmain goal. If the company increases customer satisfaction bylowering its price or increasing its service, the result may belower profits. The company may be able to increase its profitabilityby means other than increased satisfaction (for example, byimproving manufacturing processes or investing more inR&D) Also, the company has many stake holders includingemployers, dealers, suppliers, & stock holder. Spending moreto increase customer satisfaction might divert funds fromincreasing the satisfaction of their “Partners”. Ultimately, thecompany must operate on the philosophy that it is trying to Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com - 29 -

Theyare smarter, more price conscious, more demanding, lessforgiving, & they are approached by many more competitorswith equal or better offers. The challenge, according to JefferyGitomer is not to produce statistical customers; severalcompetitors can do this. The challenge is to produce delighted& loyal customers. Companies seeking to expand their profits & saleshave to spend considerable time and resources searching fornew customer. To generate leads, the company develops ads &places them in media that will reach new prospects, it sendsdirect mail & makes phone calls to possible new prospects; itssales people participate in made shows where they might find Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com - 30 -
