Customer Service Training Session

...Customer service training session Ladies and gentlemen, we have come here to discuss the customer service and the strategy of how to improve it. I will tell you how to make the customer service more efficient so that our customers are more pleased with our products and services. As you see in this paragraph (slide 2), we have to focus on assuring our customers that our products are the best. Almost 45 percent of the customers went shopping elsewhere, and over 40 percent of them did not find the right products. 33 percent of the customers had to order the products, and 24 percent of our customers did not get to buy the product they wanted from our store because we did not have it. The main thing that we as customer servants should remember is that the customers are always our main priority. Their satisfaction is our aim. With good customer service we can achieve better place at the market – because the customers are demanding, they know what they want and they want good service. We can easily stand out from the other companies by giving our customers good service. It is important to our company that the customers’ needs can be predicted because that way we can improve our service and the products. Customers do not always know what they are looking for – that is why we have to know it. We have to offer them the latest and best possible knowledge of different products so that they get convinced about the need for the certain product. We know how the buying decision process......

The Relationship Between Service Quality, Customer Satisfaction, Trust, and Customer Loyalty

...Aktel is the market follower in telecommunication service in Bangladesh having more than 1 million subscribers and is controlling approximately 23% of the market share. According to Islam, Khan, and Rahman (2002), the market share of Aktel is now decreasing at a great extent as the customer loyalty level is decreasing. As the socioeconomic status of the country does not provide further possibilities to enhance the growth of the industry, as a market follower, Aktel should strive to retain its existing subscribers and penetrate other operator’s subscriber. Therefore, there is an emergence of studying the related facets of the customer loyalty in the context of Bangladesh GSM telecommunication system for Aktel to retain and increase its market share. Hence, in the current study, the researchers intend to examine whether there are relationships among service quality, customer satisfaction, trust, and customer loyalty in Aktel in Bangladesh or not.

Out of the 71 million TV households in 1999, 32 million had access to Cable TV. However, along with the soaring viewership, complaints on quality also increased. Digitalisation of Cable TV took a new form when Direct-To-Home (DTH) was launched in India in 2003.The DTH service is an encrypted transmission. It is a digital satellite service that provides television services direct to subscribers anywhere within the country. Unlike the regular cable connection, the Set- Top-Box (STB) decodes the encrypted transmission. Since it makes use of wireless technology, programmes are sent to the subscriber’s television direct from the satellite. This eliminates the need for cables and cable infrastructure. DTH service is particularly effective in remote areas, where cables and even normal television services are poor or nonexistent. These services provide the......
