CHAPTER ONE

1.1    INTRODUCTION

The study shows the importance of services rendered to customers and effect on the business activities. To some managers, developing a strategy for customers and the services may sound like a waste of time meanwhile, without a strategy you cannot develop a concept of service to employees or catch conflict between corporate strategy and customer service, for the strategy makes you know who customers are, how much they value different aspects of services, how much you spend to satisfy them and how big the pay offs are likely to be.

It is the customer who determines what the business is, so one needs to make required attempt to know what stimulates the interest of customers towards the product offered to them. But not all organization are bothered about this that is why some of them cannot effectively compete with others because they cannot manage the services rendered to their customers.  For example a Bank with many customers are enjoying not minding what it cost them.

The contributions of customers are very important as the business is purposely created because of them. So one can see that services rendered should be studied and not neglected as it has the impact of excellence on the organization.

1.2    PROBLEM ANALYSIS

Service – oriented firms like the Banking Industry are faced with the problems of getting and retaining customers. The survival of any business organization depends on the satisfaction of customers. Customers who determine the future of an organization. The turnover of any business is contingent on the patronage of its target markets hence service industries must give considerable attention to effective customer service.

One of the classic definitions of marketing is that it is concerned with getting and keeping customers. In practice, most organization marketing efforts focus on getting customers rather than keeping them. Thus an examination of the typical marketing plan will show a bias towards increasing market share rather than towards customer retention. Whilst the new customers are always welcome in any business, it has to be realized that an existing customer provides a higher profit contribution and has the potential grow in terms of the value and frequency of purchases.
