What is Our Aim

The main focus of this presentation is to encapsulate the author’s ideas and arguments into one key idea. We as a team have chosen to represent our ideas into a formula to make it easier for our fellow colleagues to comprehend.

Missing Elements
Argument 1
Through the use of Examples and case studies the authors:

- Illustrate the idea of relationship Building

- Demonstrate the affects loyalty has on

The authors contribution to the field creates a new way of understanding the underlying concepts that revolve around customer loyalty.

- Remedies
- Strategies
- Solutions
- Authors use a comparative approach
- use examples of every business scenarios that they claim to have encountered
- use examples of customer relations with employees to demonstrate how trust is a key element
- further their claims by using a
case study

- Article is not biased because it attempts to provide examples and case studies to contrast and justify Hart & Johnson's claims

- However there are NO references from external sources
- Only part reliable due to no references

- Although we are limited through the use of external sources the authors remain reliable in their own right on the basis of their credentials
The authors use a cultural analytical framework.

- The authors based their analysis on the culture of services to determine their arguments


- Customer Satisfaction does not go far enough !
1- customer satisfaction is not the sole contributor to customer loyalty

2- Customer relationships that are built are not solely dependent on customer satisfaction

3- If satisfaction is the only service concept considered they will forever remain dissatisfied customers
- Support Hart & Johnson's idea of trust by claiming that there are other complementary elements to customer satisfaction

- They state that although customer satisfaction is essential to customer retention, they claim that the affects of trust are far more superior

- These emotional responses most often equate to positve word of mouth and retention

- Although successful service recovery may satisfy the cutomer it may not be possible to erase that bad experience and negative feelings the customer may have experienced in the initial service failure
Why Satisfied Customers Defect
By: Jones & Sasser Jr
Support ideas of trust by discussing the gulf between partially satisfied customers and completely satisfied customers and how it can "swallow a business"

Analyse the variables in relation to relationship building & tap into areas such as:
How to listen to customers
How to measure loyalty
How to use customer satisfaction info to better the trust relationship

Trust acts like a support barrier allowing customers to feel secure and comforted

The Impact of Customer Satisfaction
By: Hennig - Thurau & Klee
- State that in the context of relationship marketing, customer satisfaction is often viewed as a central element of customer retention.

- Intent : to develop a conceptual foundation for investigating the customer retention process (Customer satisfaction & Relationship quality)

- when there is trust, customers remain, if they remain
they remain Loyal !!!
Satisfaction for the longest time has been viewed as 'enough'. However this article and the interrelated sources reject this proposal by stating that yes satisfaction is important but there is one key service element not being considered; TRUST.
There is a GAP between what companies perceive a satisfied customer is and what a customer actually feels.

Service Gap?

1 -If there is GAP present within an orgnaistation then activities within the service will deplete, leading to a service failure followed by a lack of service TRUST.

2- Hart & Johnson have this idea that a no GAP policy equates to total trust within an organistation.

Due to external literature and surveys we can conclude that the removal of GAP's will lead to increased customer satisfaction and profits for the company
Multi-attribute models fall short

Specialisation vs Standardisation

Trust is essential

Specialisation is more profitable

One draw back

Initial value
Specialisation is more profitable in the long run than Standardisation

The Multi-attribute model assists in creating a standardised view of a service.
Relative importance of customer satisfaction
Ranaweera & Prabhu
The role of personalisation in service encounters
By : Mittal & Lasser
• “Personalization concerns the service employee's manner of relating to the customer at a human level.”

Influence customer perceptions of service quality

Developing an intergrated vision of customer value
By: Landroguez, Castro, Cepeda-Carrion
• Customer value is seen differently by different parties.

• Subjectively by consumers -Not objectively by service providers

• Satisfaction of customers

Customer Satisfaction and Switiching Costs on E-Loyalty
By: Tong , Wong & Lui, Influence of Service Personalisation,
• The interrelationship amongst the variables of service personalization & customer Satisfaction

• Switching costs play an important role in customer retention

• Personalisation = Positive Impact
Why Satisfied Customers Defect
By: Jones & Sasser
- If a gap is removed, than the company will profit.

- If customers receive the level of service that they were expecting, then the Gap has been removed
Customer loyalty: The future of hospitality marketing
By: Shoemaker & Lewis.
- The GAP model is a perfect illustration of the shortfalls of a service organisations activities

- The removal of a service GAP leads to the removal of dissatisfied customers
