  69. 69. FINDINGS As stated earlier there are main two types of consumers in this field and they are: 1 Small Business consumers 2. Big Business consumers WAYS TO COMPETE (FINDINGS) Now all are competing with each other on the basis of different strategies or combination of one or more strategies. But if we try to summarize the strategies then we will find that most of these are common and including all these are not more than the followings: - i. QUALITY SERVICE: Quality Service is the most important strategy used to compete in this market because customers is no more centric only in India, they need better quality in the service provided to them. The policy of ONE PIONT CONTACT should be followed by HDFC Bank. ii. ADVERTISEMENTS: Only ICICI BANK and UTI BANK are countering HDFC BANK in market through advertisements. Others are not even bothering on doing advertisements. iii. PERFORMANCE: HDFC Bank lacks on the prompt action where as others are a bit ahead in this line. HDFC Bank takes nearly 8 10 days to open a salary account for tie customer company. This is mainly because HDFC bank follows the guidelines of RBI and 69
  70. 70. the required number of documents for account opening in a bit regress. But when it comes to service performance customers are happy. iv. DIFFERENT SCHEMES: Some additional facilities should be provided to large companies in order increase Brand Value as well as bring customer loyalty. v. POTENTIAL MARKET: The current account holders should be contacted as there is less amount of documentation and lesser time is spend in convincing the customer about HDFC Bank firstly and secondly about Salary Account. Conclusions MARKET FEEDBACK ABOUT HDFC BANKS CORPORATE SALARY ACCOUNT (CONCLUSION): As a summer trainee in HDFC BANK, I would like to conclude my project work on Marketing Strategies of HDFC Bank India Ltd. It was really very interesting interacting with customers and have an insight into HDFC Banks brand image in their minds. The main aim was to know the factors & attributes of brand, and services provided by it, which companies look for in Corporate Salary Account. From the survey, overall conclusion was that people are quite satisfied with HDFC Banks Corporate Salary Account services. 70
  72. 72. SUGGESTIONS After talking to customers and staffs I suggest the following points to keep customers happy QUICK SERVICE: - HDFC Bank must try to provide services as early as possible and reduce the time gap between date promised and work performed so that customer must not get irritated. PROPER CO-ORDINATION: - Staffs of HDFC are still not comfortable with the queries of customers about their new service, as they sometimes feel dumb to some of the questions. They must get proper updating from the head office related to any changes or problems faced by the staffs. PROPER ORGANISATION OF WORK: - HDFC Bank needs to be more organized in terms with area division among the various internal sales teams. The potential market should be followed up in order to get good sales number. QUALITY SERVICE: - HDFC Bank customers generally have following complains: Number of days has passed yet my account opening process is under process I have not receive my personalized cheque book as it has been more than a month after applying for it I have made a number of complaints but no one is hearing HDFC Bank has to resolve them as early as possible because it affects the service quality very badly. 72
  74. 74. LIMITATIONS i. AREA LIMITATION: The study was limited to Pune city only. Hence findings may differ from other parts of India where I have not visited ii. NON-RESPONSE ERROR: It is almost impossible to obtain data from each & every respondent covered in sample. There are always some respondents who refuse to give information iii. LIMITED SOURCE OF DATA COLLECTION: Sources of data for collection of secondary data were limited iv. TIME CONSTRAINT: There was time constraint to this project. The project has to be completed within 2 months. v. BUSY RESPONDENT: Many times respondents were so busy that they didn’t t give reply. There were biased replies also. vi. OTHER REASONS: There were heavy rains during the period of survey. So there was many times problem in conducting survey & transportation. 74
