Page | 49 1.2.3 PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZATION 1) Organization is not aware of level of satisfaction of the existing customers. 2) Customers are switching to other banks. 3) In some Current Account there are very low transactions of funds. 4) Organization is not aware that for what reasons customer prefers this bank. 5) Organization wanted to know that customer is aware of the extra services or not. 1.3 Introduction to customer satisfaction Customer satisfaction is essential for the survival of any business. The best way to find out whether customers are satisfied or not is to ask them their opinions about your products and services, what's most important to them, and then make improvements to those areas that have the biggest impact on their satisfaction. Customer satisfaction, however, is when the customer is satisfied with aproduct/service that meets the customer‟s needs, wants, and expectations. The level of satisfaction is determined not only by the quality and type of customer experience but also by the customer‟s expectations. A customer may be defined as someone who • Has a direct relationship with, or is directly affected by your agency and • Receives or relies on one or more of your agency‟s services or products.
  • 46. Page | 50 The ultimate aim of measuring customer satisfaction must be to act on the information gathered, close the “gaps” between the customer‟s perception of service and the actual service provided. An organization with a strong customer serviceculture places the customer at the centre of service design, planning and service delivery.Customer centric organizations will: Determine the customer‟s expectations when they plan listen to the customer asthey design. Focus on the delivery of customer service activities value customer feedback whenthey measure performance. 1.3.1 Measure Customer Satisfaction. In today‟s competitive environment, every organization is trying to attract the customers by assuring highest degree of satisfaction. Satisfied customers are the main determinants of success or failure of the business of an organization. Customer satisfaction measurement helps the organization to know: How well are the products and services able to meetcustomer needs and expectations? How well is the business process working? Where to make the changes to improve the performance of product or process? What is the effect of the changes made for improvements?
  • 47. Page | 51 1.3.2 Information search Once the consumer has recognized a problem, they search for information on products and services that can solve that problem. Belch and Belch (2007) explain that consumers undertake both an internal (memory) and an external search. Sources of information include: - Personal sources Commercial sources Public sources Personal experiences The relevant internal psychological process that is associated with information search is perception. Perception is defined as the process by which an individual receives, selects, organizes, and interprets information to create a meaningful picture of the world. 1.3.3 The selective consumer behavior process Stage Description - Selective exposure consumers select which promotional messages they will expose themselves to. - Selective attention consumers select which promotional messages they will pay attention to - Selective comprehension consumer interpret messages in line with their beliefs, attitudes, motives and experiences - Selective retention consumers remember messages that are more meaningful or important to them The implication of the process helps develop an effective promotional strategy, and select which sources of information are more effective for the brand.
  • 48. Page | 52 1.3.4 Information evaluation At this time the consumer compares the brand and products that are in their evoked set. How can the marketing organization increase the likelihood that their brand is part of the consumer‟s evoked set? Consumers evaluate alternatives I terms of the functional and psychological benefits that they offer. The marketing organization needs to understand what benefits consumers are seeking and therefore which attributes are most important in terms of making a decision. Purchase decision Once the alternatives have been evaluated, the consumer is ready to make a purchase decision. Sometimes purchase intention doesn‟t result in an actual purchase. The marketing organization must facilitate the consumer to act on their purchase intention. The organization can use variety of technique to achieve this. The provision of credit or payment terms may encourage purchase, or a sales promotion such as the opportunity to receive a premium or enter a competition may provide an incentive to buy now. The relevant internal psychological process that is associated with purchase decision is integration. Once the integration achieved, the organization can influence the purchase decisions much more easily. Post purchase evaluation It is common for the customers to experience concerns after making a purchase decision. This arises from a concept that is known as “cognitive dissonance”. The customer, having bought a product, may feel that an alternative would have been preferable. In these circumstances that customer will not repurchase immediately, but is likely to switch brands next time. To manage the post-purchase stage, it is the job of the marketing team to persuade the potential customer that the product will satisfy his or her needs. Then after having made a purchase, the customer should be encouraged that he or she has made the right decision. It is not affected by advertisement. Internal influences Consumer behavior is influenced by demographics, psychographics, personality, motivation, knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and feelings. Consumer behavior concern with consumer need

  • 50. Page | 54 Chapter – 2 LITERATURE REVIEW
  • 51. Page | 55 3.1 LITERATURE REVIEW Both the technical and the functional dimensions of service management were shown to correlate with customer satisfaction. Thus, SMEs seem to evaluate their banking relationship not only on the basis of the effectiveness and quality of banks' service outcomes but also on the care and manner in which the bankers deliver services. (Nicolas Lundahl, Fatima Vegholm, Lars Silver, Managing Service Quality Volume: 19 Issue: 5 2009) The purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR) and customer outcomes. This paper reviews the literature on CSR effects and satisfaction, noting gaps in the literature. A series of propositions is put forward to guide future research endeavors. By understanding the likely impact on customer satisfaction of CSR initiatives vis-à- vis customer-centric initiatives, the academic research community can assist managers to understand how to best allocate company resources in situations of low customer satisfaction. Such endeavors are managerially relevant and topical. Researchers seeking to test the propositions put forward in this paper would be able to gain links with, and possibly attract funding from, banks to conduct their research. Such endeavors may assist researchers to redefine the stakeholder view by placing customers at the center of a network of stakeholders. An understanding of how to best allocate company resources to increase the proportion of satisfied customers will allow bank marketers to reduce customer churn and hence increase market share and profits. (Lynette M. McDonald, Sharyn Rundle-Thiele, International Journal of Bank Marketing Volume: 26 Issue: 3 2008) Ethics have always played a crucial role in the realm of business and commerce. This paper aims to extract the principle factors of ethical practices to develop a model for competitive advantage in banking and to show the relation between ethical practice and customer satisfaction and the linked reason for satisfaction as a tool for competitive advantage. Based on the literature review, ethical issues in banking have been identified as a foundation work. Then an empirical study using survey research has been completed. The survey questionnaire has been designed using the literature and pilot survey input. Factor analysis has been conducted to derive ethical factors for competitive advantage from the survey data, which included 186 responses. ?2 tests were also carried out to show the linked .From the analysis; two
  • 52. Page | 56 principle factors have been extracted: the cost leveraging factor; and the value leveraging factor which lead to competitive advantage. Moreover, it also revealed that high ethical practice results in high customer satisfaction and performance. ( Goitom Tesfom, Nancy J. Birch Journal of Services Marketing Volume: 25 Issue: 5 2011) This research investigated the relationship between three elements – core service quality, relational service quality- and perceived value – and customer satisfaction and future intentions across four services. The results revealed that core service quality (the promise) and perceived value were the most important drivers of customer satisfaction with relational service quality (the delivery) a significant but less important driver. A direct link between customer satisfaction and future intentions was established. The relative importance of the three drivers of satisfaction varied among services. Specifically, the importance of core service quality and perceived value was reversed depending on the service. A major conclusion was that both perceived value and service quality dimensions should be incorporated into customer satisfaction models to provide a more complete picture of the drivers of satisfaction.. (Gordon H.G. McDougall,Birch Journal of Services Marketing Volume: 25 Issue: 5 2011) Results from independent two-sample t-tests and logistic regression support all five hypotheses, confirming that young and older bank customers differ significantly in their perception of switching barriers: relational benefits, switching costs, availability and attractiveness of alternatives, service recovery and the duration of time they intend to end their relationship with their banks. This study was conducted among employees of two higher education institutions. Thus, further research needs to test the research results in a diverse population. Since younger customers are more likely to change their banks easily, if retail banks want to retain younger customers they need to offer more meaningful incentives to younger customers than they offer to older customers. In terms of practice the findings in this research highlight the need for managers to design different switching barrier packages for each customer age group. ( Goitom Tesfom, Nancy J. Birch Journal of Services Marketing Volume: 25 Issue: 5 2011) This research investigated the relationship between three elements – core service quality, relational service quality- and perceived value – and customer satisfaction and future intentions across four services. The results revealed that core service quality (the promise) and perceived value were the most important drivers of customer satisfaction with relational service quality (the
