    • http://www.gameswala.com/ Industry BackgroundIndia’s telecom sector has been doing exceptionally well in past decade. Its structural andinstitutional reforms have provided tremendous growth opportunity to this sector. Indiahas nearly 200 million telephone lines making it the third largest network in the worldafter China and USA. With a growth rate of 45%, Indian telecom industry has the highestgrowth rate in the world. The first reforms in Indian telecommunications sector began in1980s when the private sector was allowed in telecommunications equipmentmanufacturing. In 1985, Department of Telecommunications (DOT) was established.Evolution of the industry-Important Milestones Year History of Indian Telecommunications1851 First operational land lines were laid by the government near Calcutta (seat of Britishpower) 1881 Telephone service introduced in India 1883 Merger with the postal system1923 Formation of Indian Radio Telegraph Company (IRT) 1932 Merger of ETC and IRTinto the Indian Radio and Cable Communication Company (IRCC) 1947 Nationalization ofall foreign telecommunication companies to form the Posts, Telephone and Telegraph(PTT), a monopoly run by the governments Ministry of Communications 1985 Departmentof Telecommunications (DOT) established, an exclusive provider of domestic and long-distance service that would be its own regulator (separate from the postal system) 1986Conversion of DOT into two wholly government-owned companies: the Videsh SancharNigam Limited (VSNL) for international telecommunications and Mahanagar TelephoneNigam Limited (MTNL) for service in metropolitan areas. 1997 Telecom RegulatoryAuthority of India created. 1999 Cellular Services are launched in India. New NationalTelecom Policy is adopted. 2000 DoT becomes a corporation, BSNL 1.2] Indian TelecomPolicy:- After 1991’s liberalization in Government’s policies, the telecom sector has allowedvarious private players to enter into the Indian market. Earlier, sector was operating underpublic sector giants like Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), Mahanagar TelephoneNigam Limited (MTNL) and Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL) but after the NationalTelecom Policy (NTP) by Government in 1994 many private players enteredthis market is regulated by Telecommunication Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). Itacts as an independent regulator of the business of telecommunications in the countrywhich was set up in 1997 by the government of India. (Source: TRAI Report 2006-07)Indian telecommunications today benefits from among the most enlightened regulation inthe region, and arguably in the world. The sector, sometimes considered the “poster-boyfor economic reforms,” has been among the chief beneficiaries of the post-1991liberalization. Unlike electricity, for example, where reforms have been stalled,telecommunications has generally been seen as removed from “mass concerns,” and thusless subject to electoral calculations http://www.gameswala.com/ 1
    • http://www.gameswala.com/Today, there are many private players like Vodafone, Airtel, Tata, Reliance, Idea etc. Thereare basically two areas in which these players operate: Fixed and Cellular Services. In Fixedline, MTNL and BSNL have captured major part of the market. Whereas, Cellular Services,can be further divided into two parts: Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) andCode Division Multiple Access (CDMA).In this modern era mobile / basic phone become a best source to being communicated. http://www.gameswala.com/ 1

Analyses the factors affecting the online consumers behavior and examines how e- marketers can influence the outcome of the virtual interaction and buying process by focusing their marketing efforts on elements shaping the customers virtual experience, the Web experience. Identifying the Web experience components and understanding their role as inputs in the online customers decision-making process are the first step in developing and delivering an attractive online presence likely to have the maximum impact on Internet users. Click-and-mortar firms delivering superior Web experience influence their physical clients’ perceptions and attitudes, driving additional traffic to traditional sales outlets. Provides a contribution to the theoretical debate around the factors influencing the online consumers behavior and outlines some noticeable similarities and differences between the traditional and virtual consumers.” See Henry assail (1987)27 has discussed the consumer buying behavior is the “consumer decision making varies with the type of buying decision. The decisions to buy Tata indicom, reliance, idea, bsnl and vodaphone are all very different. Complex and expensive purchases are likely to involve more buyer deliberation and more participants”.

The research shows that consumers with priorexperience about a product can predict their choices relatively well but customers tendedto overestimate the importance of features, call rates, and free call and underestimates theimportance of a monthly access fee, mobile to mobile phones rates and the connection fee.

Purchase decision become mare complex not only because of more choicesbut also similar features that are offered by all the brands especially for consumerdurables. To face the tough competition, companies want to place their products in multi-brand shops. Consumers also prefer multi-brand shops and retailer feel it hard and difficultto manage single brands shops.MR. Aaker, and David A.(1998)16 has discussed the consumer perception as the price ofthe product of well known brands cannot bi differentiated, retailer are in a very hardposition to differentiate them by concentrating be other factors. As customer have morechoice and more information then ever before, retailer must be highly focused, in order togrow in a world of extremes. Retailer therefore needs to adopt a new approach.

LITERATEUR REVIEW ON CUSTOMER RELACTIONSHIP MANAGEMENT (CRM) According to the Mr.Roland T.Rust, Valerie A. Zeithaml (2000)21 During customer equity, marketing management written by the Philip kotler (2004)page no.(76-78). The aim of customer relationship management (CRM) is to produce high customer equity. Customer equity is the total of the discounted lifetime values of all the firm’s customers. Clarity, the more loyal the customers, the higher the customer equity. “CRM is an acronym for ‘Customer Relationship Management’. CRM is a set of strategies, processes, metrics, organizational culture and technology solutions that enhance an organizations ability to see the differences in its customers’ and prospects behavior and needs, track new opportunities to better serve their customers and act, instantly and profitably, on those differences and opportunities. Recently CRM has taken a center stage in the business world with businesses concentrating on saving money and increasing profits by redefining internal processes and procedures. It costs a company dramatically less to retain and grow an existing client, than it does to court new ones. It is said that “It is seven times more expensive to acquire a new customer than to keep an existing one”, therefore the value of customer information and management should never be underestimated. http://www.gameswala.com/ 1
    • http://www.gameswala.com/ There are various technical components of CRM like customer information, sales, marketing trends and marketing efficacy that act in tandem to improve relationship between companies and consumers. From a technological perspective, it involves capturing customer data from across the organization and consolidating all internally and externally acquired customer-related data in a central database. This data is then analyzed and the results of the analysis are distributed via customer touch points like mobile sales force, inbound and outbound call centers, web sites, point-of-sale, email, etc., for use while dealing with customers at these very touch points. The Internet has revolutionized the way business is done and has virtually taken the enterprise information system within the reach of the customer. It can be accessed through the call centers, through the Internet and increasingly through mobile devices.CRM from the Business Strategy Perspective.The Business Strategy perspective has most in common with many of the lessons andtopics contained on this website, and indeed within the field of marketing itself. Thediagram below shows the Marketing Teacher Model of CRM and Business Strategy. Ourmodel contains three key phases - customer acquisition, customer retention andcustomer extinction, and three contextual factors - marketing orientation, value creationand innovative IT. http://www.gameswala.com/ 1
    • http://www.gameswala.com/A commonly cited definition of CRM is that of CRM (UK) Ltd (2002), as follows:Customer Relationship Management is the establishment, development, maintenanceand optimization of long-term mutually valuable relationships between consumers andorganizations. What you cry? What does that mean? Lets unpack the definition. The keyto the definition is long-term mutually valuable relationship. This is based upon adefinition of marketing that considers marketing as a mutually satisfying system ofexchanges (for example Baker 2002). So CRM is the building and maintenance of long-term customer relationships. The relationship delivers value to customers, and profits tocompanies. The relationship is supported (but not driven) by cutting edge IT. Thebusiness strategy is based upon the recruitment, retention and extension of products,services, solutions or experiences to customers. This is the core of CRM. “CRM software provides a company-wide business strategy designed to reduce costsand increase profitability by improving customer loyalty. CRM brings togetherinformation from all areas of a company (sales, marketing, and customer service andmanagement departments) to provide a complete view of each customer. This allowscompany representatives to make quick and informed decisions when communicatingwith a prospect or customer.”CRM can access information on products purchased, service contracts, defects and muchmore. CRM software provides a standard framework for pushing lead informationthrough a sales pipeline and managing it amongst many stakeholders. This way, you can http://www.gameswala.com/ 1
    • http://www.gameswala.com/ provide better customer relations and grow revenues by creating more sales, while losing fewer customers. Customer serviceAccording to Turban et al “customer service is a series of activities designed to enhance the levelof customer satisfaction that is, the feeling that a product or service has met the customerexpectation. The needs, wants and preconceived ideas of a customer about a product or service.Customer expectation will be influenced by a customer’s perception of the product or service andcan be created by previous experience, advertising, hearsay, awareness of 32 competitors andbrand image. The level of customer service is also a factor and a customer might expect toencounter efficiency, helpfulness, reliability, confidence in the staff and a personal interest inhis / her patronage.The main objectives of customer services are: -· Learn to identify and analyze customer needs and problems· Recognize the most common reasons for customer complaints· Discover techniques to cultivate and maintain special customer relationships· Assess your communication style and use two – way communication skills to level with people,to accept feedback from them, and to discuss problems· Identify specific problems in your customer service program and apply treatment. http://www.gameswala.com/ 1
