  1. 1. 1 INTRODUCTION Whether the buyer is satisfied after purchase depends on the offers performance in relation to the buyer expectation. In general satisfaction is a person’s feeling of pleasure or disappointment resulting from comparing a products perceived performance relation to his/her expectations. If the performance falls short of expectation, the customer is dissatisfied. If the performance matches the expectation customer is satisfied. If the performance exceeds the expectation the customer is highly satisfied. Customer satisfaction cannot be very difficult. After all you either satisfied with the services you receive or you are not. If you don’t you are not. If it is that easy, then obtaining people's fopinion about how satisfied they are with relatively straightforward matter- or is it?. Customer satisfaction is a marketing tool and a definite value-added benefit. It is often perceived by customers as important as the primary product or service your organization offers. It looks at what is involved from 3 different angles; the first is from the view of an organization wishing to understand, and measures, how satisfied their customers are with the products and services they receive from it. The second is from the perspective of research agency that has been asked to obtain feedback from customers and about their experiences when dealing with companies. Finally it considers the issue from the perspective of consumers who participate in surveys, including both business customers and members of general public. Meaning of customer satisfaction: Customer satisfaction is a business term, is a measure of how products and services supplied by a company meet or surpass customer expectation. It is seen as a key performance indicator within business and part of the four prospective of balanced score card. IN a competitive market place were businesses compete for customers, customer satisfaction is seen as a key differentiator and increasingly has become a key element of business strategy customer satisfaction drives successful private sector business. High performing businesses have developed principles and strategies for achieving customer satisfaction. This paper presents a framework or set of ideas for using customer satisfaction principles and strategies to improve the quality responsiveness, and possibility of public sector privately provided services in vulnerable communities. The
  2. 2. 2 framework suggested that resident who live in tough neighborhoods can be supported through customer satisfaction strategies to become empowered individuals who informed perspectives influence decisions about what, how, when, and where services are available to them. Customer satisfaction is the customers’ response to the evaluation of the perceived discrepancy between prior expectation and the actual performance of the product as perceived after its consumption. Definition: Codotte, woodruff and Jenkins (1987) define customer satisfaction as "conceptualized as a feeling developed from an evaluation of the experience”. HERE, the timing of satisfaction response is driving consumption. BUT there is general agreement with kotler (2003) that "customer satisfaction is a person's feeling of pleasure or disappointment resulting from comparing a products perceived performance in relation to his or her expectation". In short customer satisfaction is "The provision of goods or services which fulfill the customer expectation in terms of quality and service, in relation to price paid". Importance of the study: IT costs at least 7 times more to source a new customer than it does to retain existing one A 'satisfied' customer tells 5-7 people in a year whilst a 'dissatisfied' customer will tell14- 15 people. Companies can boost profits anywhere from 25% to 125% by retaining a mere 5%more of their exciting customers. Totally satisfied customers were 6 times more likely to use that services and commend it than ' satisfied' customers. Customers who have a bad experience with you and do not complain are only 37%likely to still do business with you. Customers who have an opportunity to complain and the complaint is achieved are95% likely to still do business with you.

  6. 6. 6 Marketing: Marketing is about identifying and meeting human and social needs. One of the shortest good definitions of marketing is “meeting needs profitably.” People were unable to locate some of the items they desired most, it created an online auction clearinghouse. When IKEA noticed that people wanted good furniture at a substantially lower price, it created knockdown furniture. These two firms demonstrated marketing savvy and turned a private or social need into a profitable business opportunity. Definition of marketing: The American Marketing Association offers the following formal definition: “Marketing is an organizational function and a set of processes for creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers and for managing customer relationships in ways that benefit the organization and it stakeholders.” Coping with these exchange processes calls for a considerable amount of work and skill. Marketing management takes place when at least one party to a potential exchange thinks about the means of achieving desired responses from other parties. Thus we see marketing management as the art and science of choosing target markets and getting, keeping, and growing customers through creating, delivering, and communicating superior customer value Customer satisfaction: Usually here should be two essential things to take place transactions in the market. Those are nothing but product and customer. Without product here will be no customer are tangible. Bu he satisfactions of the customer is intangible. That intangible factor influences a lot on the tangible one i.e. product. So each and every organization has o concentrate more on satisfying is customers. Unless otherwise he companies gain mind share and hear share of the customer, heir product may not sustain in the marked, and they may no retain their customers back. The gradual opining up economies but respective government paved the way for the multinational companies resulting in an extremely competitive market leaving
  7. 7. 7 benefits o he customers. The availability of the choice has led to think and act before he dies. The saying “customer is king”, was gained importance. Most of the organizations accepted he promise that, an organization must become more knowledge- intensive and value oriented in order to serve the customers. Customers are getting benefited because hire felt and unfelt needs are care by the marketers of the day. The improvements of marketing efforts gave shape o after sales services. Now organizations are thinking upon the concepts like relationship marketing, involving the customers as partners of growth for the organization. Definitions: “Satisfaction is a person’s feelings of pleasure or disappointment resulting from comparing a product’s perceived performance in relation to his or her experience”. …………….Philip Kotler Today’s most successful companies are raising expectations and delivering performance to match. These companies embrace total customer satisfaction. Highly satisfied customers produce several benefits for the company. Satisfied customers are fewer prices sensitive, remain customers for a longer period, and talk favorably to others about the company and its products. A company can always increase customer satisfaction by lowering its price or increasing its services, but this may result lower profits. Thus, the purpose of marketing is to generate customer value profitably. “How closely experience with a product Meet or exceeds a customer’s expectation”. …………… M.K. Ram pal. S.L. Gupta
  8. 8. 8 Factors Influencing Customer Satisfaction: Marketing research has identified four distinct facers which influence the customer satisfaction. According o Lile and Sheth the major aspects of each are Product: basic design: how familiar designer are with customer needs, Incentives drive he designing, manufacturing and quality control. Sales activity: Wham messages The Company sends out in its advertising Intermediaries, and The attitudes that it projects to the customer. After –sales: Guarantees, parts and service, feedback, complains handling, and overall responsiveness o a customer with a problem. Cultures: Intrinsic values and belief of the firm as well as Tangible and Intangible symbols and systems it uses To instill These values into Employee behavior at all level PRODUCT Customer Satisfaction After-sales Sales Activity Culture
  9. 9. 9 Factors effecting customer satisfaction; Steps to crate a better customer service; Identify your customer. Establish a good communication. So you learn what your customer‘s expectation s are about your service or product. Create or modify your product or service according to that information. Make sure every one in your company or organization is aware and willing to improve the customer, service vision and mission. The customer service triangle: The customer is at the center of this triangle, because every activity must be seen in terms of its impact on customer satisfaction, under it has been observed that the customer service triangle developed by Albrecht and Zemke will standing how the customer views the organization’s performance rather than accepting an internal view.
  10. 10. 10 Customers first Customer service is both a management function and an integral part of your business marketing strategy. Marketing strategies outline how your marketing objectives will be achieved. For example if the objective is to increase market share, the marketing strategy states exactly how the increase will occur. Marketing objectives for profits, cash, flow, and market share can be achieved by increasing the number of users, increasing the rate of purchase, retaining existing customers and having them repeat their purchases, or acquiring new customers. You can provide excellent customer service and retain current customers by focusing on the 4c’s Customer needs – meet their needs and maintain their satisfaction Cost to satisfy needs – gaining customer satisfaction doesn’t have to be expensive Convenience – being accountable to your customer, they want to help and give their opinions. CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
  11. 11. 11 Tools for tracking and measuring customer satisfaction; Complaints and suggestion system: A customer – c entered organization makes it easy for its customer to delivery suggestion and complaints. Many restaurants and hotels provide forms for guests to report like and dislike. Some customer – centered companies like general electrical whirlpool establish hot lines with toll – free 200 telephone numbers companies are also adding web pages and e- mail to facilitate two – way communication. These information flows provide companies with many good ideas and enable them to act quickly to resolve problems Customer satisfaction surveys: Studies shows that although customers are dissatisfied with one out of every four purchases, less than 5 percent of dissatisfy customers will complain. Most customers’ will buy less or switch suppliers. Complaint levels are thus, not a good measure of customer satisfaction, Companies measure customer satisfaction directly by conducting periodic surveys. They send questionnaires or make telephone calls to a random sample of recent customers. They also solicit buyer’s views on their competitor’s performances. While collecting customer satisfaction data, it is also useful to ask additional questions to measure purchase intention, this will normally be high if the customer’s satisfaction is higher. It is also useful to measure the like hood or willingness to recommend the company and brand to other. A high positive word of mouth score indicates that the company in producing high customer satisfaction.
  12. 12. 12 Lost customer analysis: Companies should contact customer who have stopped buying of who have switched to another supplier to learn why this happened. When IBM loses a customer, it meant a though effort to learn where it failed. Not only is it important to conduct exit interviews, when customer first stops. Buying, but it is also necessary to monitor the customer loss rate. Customer satisfaction is what they expect from the manufacturer and how much they satisfied with the service? If the performances of the product fall short of expectation, the customer is not satisfied. If the performance of the product matches with the expectations the customer is satisfied. If the performance of the product is more than the expectations the customer is highly satisfied and delighted. It is very necessary to measure the customer satisfaction because every average business losses 10% to 30% of its customers each year often without knowing. Therefore the manufacture has to be in a position. To identity which customer they have lost, why they were lost and when they are lost and have to take the proper steps to overcome these problems. In a business, it is so far more expensive to win a new customer then to maintains the existing one that is cost of acquiring a new customer is 5 to 7 times greater than retaining the current one. Customer satisfaction is closely linked to quality in recent years, many companies have adopted total quality management (TQM) programs, designed to constantly improve.
  13. 13. 13 Customer services: Service: Identifiable, intangible activity that is the main object of Transactions designed to provide want satisfaction to customer. According To Vishwanadhan in his book “Analysis of Manufacturing Enterprises, an Approach to Leveraging Value “defines customer service as follows. Customer service is defined as he set of activities involved in timely and accurate delivery of product, invoices and any other items necessary o use he products in a fashion perceived as excellent. The important elements of the customer service include Delivery reliability and consistency Delivery service frequency Single point of contact Price and quality After sales services The objectives of a customer service strategy is o enhance customer Retention by creating such a high level of customer satisfaction ha he customer would not even think of another supplier. Understanding customer service; Marketers must determine what customer want and then give it To Them. This can be done in several ways. One is by getting feedback regarding buyer preferences and Then information to customize the service delivery. For example, what do restaurant guest want? IT has been found that are gender preferences. Customer can fall into different groupings; the way o car to one group may be different from ha of another. And in The restaurant business here are ocher customer
  14. 14. 14 group besides men and women. Today, many fast food giants Mc Donald’s for example is now targeting on kids. There is one other major customer group however. The needs considerable attention – associates. They are individuals who work in the organization. They are internal customers who cannot be ignored in the service equation. Key To customer retention is Training associate to create service firms positive service counters. They believe that if staff does their jobs, customer will be satisfied and will make repeat purchases. Create a good a first impression; A good first impression is critical in the service business, because it sets the stages for everything that follows. Moreover, first impression is typically made within for 30 seconds of the service counter. If everything goes well at this stage, customers are likely to have a positive attitude and look forward to an enjoyable experience. If, however, things do not go well, even a minor problem may be the basis for the customer deciding not come back again. There rules to make a good impression: Greet guests as quickly as possible. (Hello, good evening etc.) Don’t allow guests to remind unattended for more than one minute. Use good posture to communicate. The tone of your greetings should be warm and your message welcoming.
  15. 15. 15 Delivering Customer Value and Satisfaction” Marketers alone cannot deliver superior customer value and satisfaction. Although it plays a leading role, marketing can be only a partner in attracting, keeping, and growing customers. Relationship marketing requires that marketers must work closely with other company departments to form an effective value chain that serves the customer. Moreover, the company can be effective only to the extent that it works effectively with its marketing system partners to form a competitively superior value-delivery network. We now take a closer look at the concepts of a company value chain and value-delivery network. Address the five dimenssioms of service quality; In providing outstanding services, five dimensions RATER (Reliability. Assurance, Tangibles, Empathy, and Responsiveness) that warrant consideration. Reliability: Ability to perform the promised service dependably and accurately. Assurance: Knowledge and accuracy of the employees and their ability to convey trust and confidence. Tangibles: Appearance of physical facilities. Equipments, personnel and communication materials (physical evidence of facilities). Empathy: Caring, individualized attention the firm provides its customers. Responsiveness: Willingness to help customer and provide prompt service.
  16. 16. 16 Five stars of services Quality Customer delight: Everyone has a service level expectation and it is up to the service firm to reach at least the lowest point of his level. This concept can be applied in Terms of a zone of tolerance, which is the level of service which a customer expects. This is illustrated in the figure and shows that service should be at least adequate. Anything below This level is unacceptable. Conversely, if the organization can provide a degree of service that is above the desired level that will result in customer delight To Typically ensures that person will return again and again. Degrees of service level Expectations Excellent service is not an end in its own right. Not is customer satisfaction. IT is a mean to an end. The commercial organization is to make profits and the aim of public Tangibles Empathy Reliability Assurance Responsiveness
  17. 17. 17 organization is to provide an efficient service within budget. Service excellence is only required in so far as it achieves these objectives. It is possible to have very satisfied customer who is not profitable and to invest in high quality service which does not affect the customer buying behavior. It is also possible to such an extent that the customer finds the service unattractive. It is therefore important to find out which factors of service influence most of the customer propensity to buy and to be ahead of nearest rivals of these factors in Terms of service offer. After sales and services: Definition: The after sales service or post sale service also called The aftermarket includes customer service e.g. repair and maintenance, Training, warranties, manuals and instructions, installation, consultation service, delivery and maintain The original product Through overhauling, replacements of parts, adjustments, and The satisfaction of outstanding warranty items. Most industrial products and many consumer durables require servicing on a regular basis. Service often must be provided to company with a warranty policy, a manufacturer must make arrangements for service Training, appropriate service facilities and spare parts to accommodate and fulfill The Terms of The special warranty. Today competitive market caused that many companies are evaluated their strategy to be more differentiated from others. After sales service is one of the elements, which help all firms in this matter. Many new breeds of high Tech companies are now discovering That They need to differentiate themselves from rivals in appealing to customers. After sales service support is being recognized as one of The competitive differentiation for most firms, which now produce in The same low cost regions of The world (Lele &SheTh , 1987). Harve mathe (1999) also emphasized on after sales service as a strong marketing Tools, which helps firms to be competitive in the market. He mentions, service is
  18. 18. 18 providing to be a source of competitive advantage Thad enables firms to remain leaders in a highly competitive market or to create differentiation, which will enable a challenger to attack and overtake The leader. According To Goffin (1999& 2001) customer support , which is also referred To as product support after sales service , Technical support or simply service is important because It can be a major of revenues, although it often receives too little management attention. IT is essential for achieving customer satisfaction and good long Term relationship as identifying by number of researchers. IT can provide a competitive advantage. IT plays a role in increasing The success rate of new products IT needs to be fully evaluated during new product development as good product design can make customer support more efficient and cost effective. Increased competition in many industries has led to increased attention on customer service. Various studies indicate that upset customer may have big effect on sales of The Company. Therefore, all firms Try to put their attention to keep their customer satisfied and fulfill their needs and wants as much as possible. One of The strong Tools which help all companies in this matter is providing best after sales service. Providing good and reliable products, which is another main Target of each company can be achieved by good after sales customer service. Avinder (1996) believes; increasingly after sales customer service is becoming the order winning criteria for most firms and is now being recognized as an important research priority. According to major study conducted by the conference board, the primary rationale of the manufactures for offering after sales service is the need to support their products. In fact after sales service adds the products value and is often Treated as integral part of The product. Proper after sales service helps companies in customer retention Too. Many companies have begun to align entire organization to deliver excellent service since they
  19. 19. 19 know their investment will pay off in Terms of competitive advantage and customer retention (Jennifer potter 1994). Finally, after sales service is often in response to a customer problem, e.g. product failure restoration, problem diagnosis, expert assistance to resolve a problem, problem with using the product etc. Therefore after sales service is a recovery process that attempts to resolve a customer problem, which if not resolved, causes dissatisfaction and less satisfied customer. The service function Therefore attempt to recover the customer satisfaction to the level it was before the occurrence of the problems (Gronroos, 2000).
  20. 20. 20 The Industry in India; History The first car ran on India's roads in 1897. Until the 1930s, cars were imported directly, but in very small numbers. Embryonic automotive industry emerged in India in the 1940s. Mahindra & Mahindra was established by two brothers as a trading company in 1945, and began assembly of Jeep CJ-3A utility vehicles under license from Willys The company soon branched out into the manufacture of light commercial vehicles (LCVs) and agricultural tractors.[20] Following the independence, in 1947, the Government of India and the private sector launched efforts to create an automotive component manufacturing industry to supply to the automobile industry. However, the growth was relatively slow in the 1950s and 1960s due to nationalisation and the license raj which hampered the Indian private sector. After 1970, the automotive industry started to grow, but the growth was mainly driven by tractors, commercial vehicles and scooters. Cars were still a major luxury. Japanese manufacturers entered the Indian market ultimately leading to the establishment of Maruti Udyog. A number of foreign firms initiated joint ventures with Indian companies.
  21. 21. 21 In the 1980s, a number of Japanese manufacturers launched joint-ventures for building motorcycles and light commercial-vehicles. It was at this time that the Indian government chose Suzuki for its joint-venture to manufacture small cars. Following the economic liberalisation in 1991 and the gradual weakening of the license raj, a number of Indian and multi-national car companies launched operations. Since then, automotive component and automobile manufacturing growth has accelerated to meet domestic and export demands. Following economic liberalization in India in 1991, the Indian automotive industry has demonstrated sustained growth as a result of increased competitiveness and relaxed restrictions. Several Indian automobile manufacturers such as Tata Motors, Maruti Suzuki and Mahindra and Mahindra, expanded their domestic and international operations. India's robust economic growth led to the further expansion of its domestic automobile market which has attracted significant India-specific investment by multinational automobile manufacturers. In February 2009, monthly sales of passenger cars in India exceeded 100,000 units and has since grown rapidly to a record monthly high of 182,992 units in October 2009. From 2003 to 2010, car sales in India have progressed at a CAGR of 13.7%, and with only 10% of Indian households owning a car in 2009 (whereas this figure reaches 80% in Switzerland for example) this progression is unlikely to stop in the coming decade. Congestion of Indian roads, more than market demand, will likely be the limiting factor. The production of automobiles has greatly increased in the last decade. It passed the 1 million mark during 2003-2004 and has more than doubled since. Size of the Industry The Indian Automotive Industry after de-licensing in July 1991 has grown at a spectacular rate on an average of 17% for last few years. The industry has attained a turnover of USD $35.8 billion, (INR 165,000 crores) and an investment of USD 10.9 billion. The industry has provided direct and indirect employment to 13.1 million people. Automobile industry is currently contributing about 5% of the total GDP of India. India's current GDP is about $1.4 trillion and is expected to grow to $3.75 trillion by 2020 The

  24. 24. 24 Ford motor in India; Ford Motor Company is an American automaker and the world's third largest automaker based on worldwide vehicle sales. Based in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, the automaker was founded by Henry Ford, and incorporated on June 16, 1903. Ford Motor Company would go on to become one of the largest and most profitable companies in the world, as well as being one of the few to survive the Great Depression. The largest family-controlled company in the world, the Ford Motor Company has been in continuous family control for over 100 years. Ford now encompasses several brands, including Lincoln and Mercury. The founding of Ford Motor Company; Henry Ford's initial foray into automobile manufacturing was the Detroit Automobile Company, founded in 1899. The company floundered, and in 1901 was reorganized as the Henry Ford Company. Ford had a falling out with his financial backers, and in March 1902 left the company with the rights to his name and 900 dollars. The Henry Ford Company changed their name to Cadillac, brought in Henry M. Leland to manage the operation, and went on to be a successful manufacturer of automobiles. Henry Ford himself turned to an acquaintance, coal dealer Alexander Y. Malcomson, to help finance another automobile company. Malcomson put up the money to start the partnership "Ford and Malcomson" and the pair designed a car and began ordering parts. However, by February 1903, Ford and Malcomson had gone through more money than expected, and the manufacturing firm of John and Horace Dodge, who had made parts for Ford and Malcomson, was demanding payment. Malcomson, constrained by his coal business demands, turned to his uncle John S. Gray, the president of the German-American Savings Bank and a good friend. Malcomson proposed incorporating Ford and Malcomson to bring in new investors, and wanted Gray to join the company, thinking that Gray's name would attract others to invest. Gray was at first uninterested, but Malcomson promised he could withdraw his share at any time, so Gray reluctantly agreed. On the strength of Gray's name, Malcomson recruited other business acquaintances to invest, including local merchants Albert Strelow and Vernon Fry, lawyers John Anderson and Horace Rackham, Charles T. Bennett of the Daisy Air Rifle Company, and his own clerk James Couzens. Malcomson also convinced the Dodges to accept stock in lieu of payment. On June 16, 1903, the Ford Motor Company was incorporated, with 12 investors owning a total of 1000 shares. Ford and Malcomson together retained 51% of the new company in exchange for their earlier investments. When the total stock ownership was tabulated, shares in the company were: Henry Ford (255 shares), Alexander Y. Malcomson (255 shares), John S. Gray (105 shares), John W. Anderson (50 shares), Horace Rackham (50 shares), Horace E. Dodge (50 shares), John F. Dodge (50 shares), Charles T. Bennett (50 shares), Vernon C. Fry (50 shares), Albert Strelow (50 shares), James Couzens (25 shares), and Charles J. Woodall (10 shares)
  25. 25. 25 At the first stockholder meeting on June 18, Gray was elected president, Ford vice- president, and James Couzens secretar. Despite Gray's misgivings, Ford Motor Company was immediately profitable, with profits by October 1, 1903 of almost $37,000. A dividend of 10% was paid that October, an additional dividend of 20% at the beginning of 1904, and another 68% in June 1904. Two dividends of 100% each in June and July 1905 brought the total investor profits to nearly 300% in just over 2 years; 1905 total profits were almost $300,000. However, there were internal frictions in the company that Gray was nominally in charge of. Most of the investors, both Malcomson and Gray included, had their own businesses to attend to; only Ford and Couzens worked full-time at the company. The issue came to a head when the principal stockholders, Ford and Malcomson, quarreled over the future direction of the company. Gray sided with Ford. By early 1906 Malcomson was effectively frozen out of the Ford Motor Company, and in May sold his shares to Henry Ford. John S. Gray died unexpectedly in 1906, and his position as Ford's president was taken over by Ford himself soon afterward.

Henry Ford''s methods came to be known around the world as Fordism by 1914. Ford is currently the second largest automaker in the U.S. and the fourth-largest in the world based on number of vehicles sold annually, directly behind Volkswagen Group. In 2007, the company fell from second to third in US annual vehicle sales for the first time in 56 years, behind only General Motors and Toyota. However, the auto giant occasionally outsells Toyota in shorter periods (most recently, during the summer months of 2009). By the end of 2009, Ford was the third largest automaker in Europe (behind Volkswagen and PSA Peugeot Citroën). Ford is the seventh-ranked overall American-based company in the 2008 Fortune 500 list, based on global revenues in 2008 of $146.3 billion. In 2008, the company produced 5.532 million automobiles and
