THE SERVICE QUALITY CONUNDRUM
• Darshinis are restaurant formats in Bangalore where there are no seating
arrangements. Their intention is to do volume business but take-aways/ parcels are
available. The quality of food items supplied in these restaurant formats is often
good. Generally the prices in these restaurants are considered reasonable as they
are segmented towards the middle class populace. One gets a wide choice of South
Indian food items and some of these restaurants have also introduced North Indian
items on their menu
• Last week I(Author) visited a darshini closer home after 6 months. In the last 1
month, another new restaurant had opened in the vicinity of this old restaurant. I
was astounded to find that this place was cleaner than before, the service was fast,
quality had greatly improved and the owner had even managed to cut the prices. It
left me wondering - how competition has impacted service quality!
• Service marketing experts have defined service quality as the gap between
expectations and perceptions. The legendary SERV-QUAL model is now widely
acknowledged as a seminal piece of academic work. This model helps in assessing
service quality
• When Ritz Carlton hotel in USA decided to launch their TQM program, they had to
face many challenges but they eventually enjoyed a successful culmination of their
efforts. Sir Patrick Mene, the COO, led these efforts from the front.
• Patrick Mene was the corporate director of quality at Ritz Carlton and he said,
“People need to understand the economics of quality. When you don’t satisfy all of
the customers all of the time, it can cost you a fortune. So we found that the
benefits more than outweighed any problems. A quality approach to running a
business is the most cost-effective, least capital-intensive path to profitability.”
• Christian Gronroos had proposed the two-dimensional model of service quality
comprising the twin elements of technical quality and functional quality. Technical
quality refers to the outcome of a service delivery and functional quality refers to
the process by which service is delivered.
The legendary SERV-QUAL model by Padmanabhan, Zeithaml identified 5 dimensions of
service quality - Reliability, Responsiveness, Assurance, Tangibles and Empathy
