EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Contemporary business world is very much competitive and the success in the competition is

Contemporary business world is very much competitive and the success in the

competition is achieved mainly through giving satisfaction to the ultimate consumer.

In service oriented industry, it is very difficult to set a standard rule to satisfy

customers. Several factors influence customer’s decision making to take the service

from an organization. The Mobile Phone Network Service industry is a service

industry; it provides the customer various communication services. So a Mobile

Phone Network Service Company must be keen in identifying the factors which

influence their decision in taking the communication service. Thus the Mobile Phone

Operator also needs to know the perception and satisfaction level of the customers

about their performance.

The present study is about an analysis of the customers’ satisfaction about services by

five Mobile Phone Network Service Company in Bangladesh. Customers’ satisfaction

regarding the services of the Mobile Phone Network Operator depends on several

factors. So, first of all, in order to analyze customers’ satisfaction level, factors which

are used as the performance measurement criteria of the operators, are analyzed. Here

four identified factors are: Network, Call, Internet and Value added Service. Then the

questionnaire is developed .Here sixteen statements have been used under these four

factors in the questionnaire and data are collected through a survey to know the

satisfaction towards the several factors. Mean and percentage are used as statistical

tool to analyze the data and interpret the result. The questionnaire is used also to

identify the customers’ overall level of satisfaction.

From the study it is found that customers are satisfied with the services provided by

the Airtel. In differnet factors, Grameenpone from Network & Internet factor, Airtel

From Call & VAS factor. Female are satisfied with Banglalink services and Male with

Grameenhpone services.

So, every company should satisfiy their customers in all factors, not in single factor. All organization should develop their features to lessen dissatisfaction.

Users of different mobile company do not feel comfortable to talk about their

personal uses.

Most of the survey persons are students and a very low number of persons are

businessman and serviceman.

2.1

Customer Satisfaction

Customer satisfaction, a business term, is a measure of how products and services supplied by a company meet or surpass customer expectation. It is seen as a key performance indicator within business. It is an ambiguous and abstract concept and the actual manifestation of the state of satisfaction will vary from person to person and product/service to product/service. Customer satisfaction represents a modern approach for quality in enterprises and organizations and serves the development of a truly customer-focused management and culture. Measuring customer satisfaction offers an immediate, meaningful and objective feedback about clients’ preferences and expectations. In this way, Mobile Phone Network Service Companies’ performance may be evaluated in relation to a set of satisfaction dimensions that indicate the strong and the weak points of a business organization. This paper presents an original customer satisfaction survey in the private Mobile Phone Network Service sector. The implemented methodology is based on the principles of multi criteria analysis and preference disaggregation modeling. The most important results are focused on the determination of the critical service dimensions and the segmentation to customer clusters with distinctive preferences and expectations. It is also the inner feelings of the customer about the service product they purchase. Customer thinks of it when they purchase the service product of the bank and of course the satisfactions encourage or persuade them to purchase or to take the decision to purchase (Kotler, 1998).

2.2 Tools of measuring customer satisfaction:

Measurement of customer satisfaction plays a very vital role in current days. Without satisfying customer needs and wants properly, it might be difficult for the company to survive in the competition. Measuring the satisfaction of consumer is a difficult job. But there are some ways these are as bellow.

While it seems clear that increasing customer satisfaction is beneficial to a marketing manager, how to measure it is less clear. Customer satisfaction has been studied from the

less clear. Customer satisfaction has been studied from the Customer Satisfaction of Mobile Phone Network Service

perspective of the individual customer and what drives their satisfaction (Oliver and Swan 1989; Oliver 1993; Fournier and Mick 1999) as well as from an industry-wide perspective to compare customer satisfaction scores across firms and industries (Fornell 1992; Anderson, Fornell, and Lehmann 1994; Fornell et al. 1996; Mittal and Kamakura 2001), while other research has examined customer satisfaction in a single organization (Schlesinger and Zornitsky 1991; Hallowell 1996; Loveman 1998) or across several organizations (DeWulf, Odekerken-Schröder, and Iacobucci 2001).

In attempting to measure customer satisfaction, it is possible that attributes can have different satisfaction implications for different consumer and market segments the usage context, segment population, and market environment can influence satisfaction and product use (Anderson and Mittal 2000). Failure to take into account segment- specific variation may lead a firm to focus on the wrong aspect for a given set of consumers (Anderson and Mittal 2000). Furthermore, consumers with similar satisfaction ratings, yet different characteristics, may exhibit different levels of repurchase behavior (Mittal and Kamakura 2001). It is clear, then, that market and consumer segments should be important factors to consider when measuring customer satisfaction and its implications.

2.3 Complaint and Suggestion System

Now a day, complaint and suggestion system is treated as an effective mechanism of measuring customer level. Most of the companies are now establishing hot lines with toll free numbers. These are also practicing Web sites and e-mail for quick and both way communication. (Kotler,2004)

2.4 Customer satisfaction surveys

Responsive companies measure customer satisfaction directly by conducting periodic surveys. While conducting customer satisfaction data, it is also useful to ask additional

questions to measure repurchase intension and to measure the likelihood or willingness to recommend the company and brand to others. (Kotler, 2004)

2.5 Service Quality

The primary responsibilities of employees in customer service positions usually entail creating and delivering the service in the customers’ presence as well as providing information, taking instructions and receiving payments and solving problems. New customers in particular, often rely on customer service personnel for assistance in learning how to use a service effectively and how to resolve problems. For example, in the Networking Service industry, the combination of a highly competitive and new technologies have forced Network Operators to add more services in an attempt to increase their profitability(Bolton and Drew,1991).

During the 1980s and early 1990s, improving service quality has become a major priority. In a service context, this strategy required efforts to improve customer satisfaction by creating better service process and outcomes. Quality means different things to people according to the contest. Quality focuses on the benefits created for customers’ side at the equation. (Bolton and Drew, 1991)

2.6 Customer queries

Customer queries are an important feature of customer satisfaction. Different customers come to the bank with their different queries. They may have both the product and service related queries. Customers’ queries indicate the customer’s information search about the service of the operator. When a customer comes to the Customer Care Center to search their information the staffs must have to be helpful and knowledgeable. When a customer comes to a Customer Care Center he or she expects the best level of service from the Customer Care Executives. Employees won’t be able to help these customers if they are not enough knowledgeable about the products and services they are providing. Customer queries in term of their SIM Card Purchasing or Connection purchasing has to

be efficient and employees’ attention to be needed. When a customer purchases a new connection he or she has lots of queries about the Operator as he/she is new in the Network Service. Customer has queries also in other area like their transaction with the bank. They have many queries about the transaction like the procedure, instruction, accuracy and efficiency. Customers have queries in terms of their complaints also. When they place a complaint they seek responsiveness, concern, expectations and arrangement. When a Customer Care Center can efficiently provide the information of’ customer queries, they will be able to make their customer highly satisfied. (Kotler, 2004)

2.7 Factors Affecting Customer Satisfaction

Several studies in the marketing literature have considered the relationship between customer satisfaction and performance at the firm level. Not surprisingly, the results generally show that customer satisfaction provides economic benefits to the firm. For example, customer satisfaction has been linked to increased revenues (Fornell, 1992; Gómez, McLaughlin & Wittink, 2004; Rust, Zahorik, & Keiningham, 1995), more inelastic demand (Anderson, 1996), and reduced costs for attracting new customers and other costs associated with poor quality, defects and complaints (Anderson, Fornell, & Rust, 1997). Reflecting these benefits, customer satisfaction has been found to positively affect a firm’s profitability (Anderson, Fornell, & Lehmann, 1994; Aaker & Jacobson, 1994; Capon, Farley, & Hoeni, 1990), and its market value (Aaker & Jacobson, 1994; Ittner & Larcker, 1998). While extant literature provides evidence for the positive effect of a firm’s customer satisfaction, little if any research has considered the effect of rivals’ customer satisfaction on a firm’s performance.

2.8 Customer Satisfaction & Service Industry

Customers’ satisfaction is one of the vital important factors in every organization. There exists a link between the customers’ satisfaction and the organization’s overall performance. To know the level of customers’ satisfaction is essential because it helps the institutions to know how well they are doing in comparison to others and also what the

they are doing in comparison to others and also what the Customer Satisfaction of Mobile Phone

customers’ desire from them, what they need to add, removes or change along with core offering. In a Mobile phone Network service Company, customer satisfaction is a vital need to run the business. Manager need to be concerned on a day-to-day basis that the customers are satisfied, the operational system are running smoothly and efficiently and the employees are not working productively but are also doing a good jobs either of serving customers directly or helping other employees to deliver good services. However, the distinctive nature of services performances, especially such aspects as involvement in production and the importance of time factors i.e. procedures of services require that some strategic elements be included. To capture the nature of the challenge, 8Ps model of integrated service can be used, which highlights the strategic decision variables facing managers of service organizations (Lovelock, 2001). According to him these are products elements, place cyberspace and time, process, productivity and quality, people, promotion, education, physical evidence, price and other user costs.

Increased customer repurchases increase the profitability of firms (Fornell. 1992) and maintaining customer satisfaction is key to retaining customers (Mittal, Katrichis and Kumar, 2001). Price has been a traditional form of competition but with increased competitive pressures, TQM, instantaneous worldwide communication, and flexible manufacturing, price competition is no longer sufficient. Product design, quality, performance, and delivery have become more important factors in creating customer relationships (Flint, Woodruff and Gardial, 2002). To be competitive, it is important that today’s marketers understand exactly which factors drive customer satisfaction judgments and focus on fulfilling those elements. (Journal of the Academy of Business and Economics, 2003)

The most widely accepted model of customer satisfaction is the expectancy disconfirmation paradigm (Patterson, Johnson and Spreng, 1997). In this model, when a consumer’s expectation of performance is met, the expectation is said to be confirmed. When actual performance is below the expected level of performance, the expectation is negatively disconfirmed and when actual performance exceeds the expected level of performance, the expectation is positively disconfirmed. Overall satisfaction is

considered a multi-attribute model in which overall satisfaction has multiple components. (Journal of the Academy of Business and Economics, 2003).

2.9 Importance of Measuring Customer Satisfaction in the Mobile Phone Network Service Industry

In case of Mobile Phone Network Service Industry, the services are intangible in nature, here the core services is the products and features (Mobile Connections and Call Benefits) but the supplementary services are the procedure of getting the services, speed of service providing, the physical environment and also the attitude of personnel. As technology serves all services of a company, so technology must be very modern and new with high performance. Technical fault can be happened. But fault must be repaired as soon as possible. Highly qualified technician can serve in this purpose. There are many factors that affect customer satisfaction. Those factors must be fulfilled with satisfaction to gain market position. A company can improve their service to gain market when they know about the customer satisfaction of their services. In a mobile phone network service company, they can include new offers, new features and new attracting services to gain full satisfaction from the customers. To improve the service a company must know about their customer satisfaction. And to know that they must measure customer satisfaction. In a service industry, customer satisfaction is a must to run the business effectively. By conducting customer satisfaction surveys they can know where their fault in service is and improve their market and increase customer. Service with relevance to motto and advertisement can improve customer satisfaction. To know about all the things, a company must measure customer satisfaction. So, the main theme is that to improve companies position and increase demand, customer satisfaction measurement is needed.

2.10 Significance of This Study from Earlier World Wide Researches Context and Adding Value to Existing Literatures

Mobile Phone Network Service industry is one of the largest industries in Bangladesh. So far there are 6 Mobile Phone Network Service Operator in Bangladesh and many more are coming. Huge number of customers is involved in Mobile Phone Network Service industry taking the Networking services regularly. This study basically focuses on customer’s satisfaction regarding the services provided by the 5 major Mobile Phone network companies. This study will measure the customer’s satisfaction and will determine how this attitude can be changed. With the help of this study Operators can make necessary changes to their services so that customers can have a positive attitude towards their services. This will help them to survive in the competition among the Mobile Phone Network Service industry. Besides in the social and economic perspective this study will also contribute. Our attitude towards the values, belief, and customs can be identified through this study. In addition to the Networking sector there are some other sectors where consumer’s satisfaction is an important factor to achieve success. For example: fast moving consumer goods industry can apply this model to measure their customer’s satisfaction and make necessary changes in their products and services. Therefore we can say that this study will definitely contribute to the social and economic perspective in the country.

Introduction of Mobile Phone Network Service Industry in Bangladesh

The expansion of Bangladesh‟s telecommunications sector began with small steps in 1989 with the issuance of a license to a private operator for the provision of inter alia cellular mobile services to compete with the previous monopoly provider of telecommunications services the Bangladesh Telegraph and Telephone Board (BTTB). Significant changes in the number of fixed and mobile services deployed in Bangladesh occurred in the late 1990s and the number of services in operation has subsequently grown exponentially in the past five years. The incentives both from government and public sectors have helped to grow this sector. It is now one of the biggest sectors of Bangladesh. As a populous country, its huge market has attracted many foreign investors to invest in this sector.

1 st of all Sheba Telecom got license to operate exchange is 199 sub-districts in 1989.

Now it is called Banglalink. In that year Cellular mobile phone company Pacific Bangladesh Telephone Limited and Bangladesh Telecom got license. It is now called CityCell. In 1996 GrameenPhone got cellular mobile Telephone license. Telecom Malaysia International Bangladesh got cellular mobile license in that year also. After that in 2004 Teletalk under Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC). In December 2005, Warid Telecom International LLC obtained a 15 year GSM license to operate as the sixth mobile phone operator in Bangladesh for US$ 50 million. Warid Bangladesh started rolling out its network from mid-2006, and launched commercial operations on May 10, 2007 covering 26 districts. In 2006, an Egypt-based Orascom Telecom acquired Sheba Telecom and named Banglalink GSM. In 2008, Japanese NTT DoCoMo bought 30 percent stake in Aktel. It was named then Robi from 2010. Bharti Airtel acquired 70 percent stake in Warid Telecom and named that Airtel Bangla Ltd.

3.3.1 Overview

3.3 Grameenphone 3.3.1 Overview B efore Grameenphone‟s inception, the phone was for a selected urbanized few.

Before Grameenphone‟s inception, the phone was for a selected urbanized few. The cell phone was a luxury: a flouting accessory for the select elite.The mass could not contemplate mobile telephony as being part of their lives.

Grameenphone started its journey with the Village Phone program: a pioneering initiative to empower rural women of Bangladesh. The name Grameenphone translates to “Rural phone”.

Starting its operations on March 26, 1997, the Independence Day of Bangladesh, Grameenphone has come a long way. Grameenphone pioneered the then breakthrough initiative of mobile to mobile telephony and became the first and only operator to cover 98% of the country‟s people with network

Since its inception Grameenphone has built the largest cellular network in the country with over 13,000 base stations in more than 7000 locations. Presently, nearly 99 percent of the country's population is within the coverage area of the Grameenphone network. Grameenphone has always been a pioneer in introducing new products and services in the local market. GP was the first company to introduce GSM technology in Bangladesh when it launched its services in March 1997.

Grameenphone was also the first operator to introduce the pre-paid service in September 1999. It established the first 24-hour Call Center, introduced value-added services such as VMS, SMS, fax and data transmission services, international roaming service, WAP, SMS-based push-pull services, EDGE, personal ring back tone and many other products and services. The entire Grameenphone network is also EDGE/GPRS enabled, allowing access to high-speed Internet and data services from anywhere within the coverage area. There are currently nearly 2.6 million EDGE/GPRS users in the Grameenphone network.

GrameenPhone has invested more than BDT 17,093 million to build the network infrastructure. There are now more than 1600 GP Service Desks across the country covering nearly all upazilas of all districts and 94 Grameenphone Centers in all the divisional cities. Grameenphone has more than 5000 full and temporary employees.

300,000 people are directly dependent on Grameenphone for their livelihood, working for the Grameenphone dealers, retailers, scratch card outlets, suppliers, vendors, contractors and others.

Today, Grameenphone is the leading telecommunications service provider in Bangladesh with more than 36 million subscribers as of December 2011.

Warid Telecom International LLC paid US$ 50 million to obtain a GSM license from the BTRC and became the sixth mobile phone operator in Bangladesh in 2005 and launched at the end of January 2007. It gave away complimentary subscriptions among a selected group of individuals, whose job was to make 'test calls' and the operator adjusted its network's quality based on their comments.

On May 9, 2007, Warid in an advertisement in some daily newspaper stated that it would be launching publicly on May 10, 2007. However, no call rate nor any package details

were revealed. The advertisement included an announcement for the people interested to buy Warid connections to bring the documents like ID Card, etc., to the designated franchise and customer care centres. By November 10, 2007, 61 districts under Warid network coverage.

Airtel Bangladesh is the sixth mobile phone carrier to enter the Bangladesh market, and launched commercial operations on May 10, 2007. On June 10, 2008, Warid Telecom expanded its network to 3 more districts Bandarban, Khagrachhari and Rangamati. Now all 64 districts of Bangladesh are under Warid network coverage meaning Warid Telecom now has nationwide coverage.

On December 20, 2010, Warid Telecom was rebranded to Airtel. Warid Telecom International LLC, an Abu Dhabi based consortium, sold a majority 70% stake in the company to India's Bharti Airtel Limited for US$300 million. Bharti Airtel Limited will take management control of the company and its board, and rebranded the company's services under its own airtel brand from 20 December 2010. The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission approved the deal on Jan 4, 2010.

In January 2010, Bharti Airtel Limited, Asia‟s leading integrated telecom services provider, acquired 70% stake in Warid Telecom, Bangladesh, a subsidiary of the UAE- based Abu Dhabi Group.

Bharti Airtel is making a fresh investment of USD 300 million to rapidly expand the operations of Warid Telecom and have management and board control of the company. This is the largest investment in Bangladesh by an Indian company. Dhabi Group continues as a strategic partner retaining 30% shareholding and has its nominees on the Board of the Company.

The new funding is being utilized for expansion of the network, both for coverage, capacity, and introduction of innovative products and services. As a result of this additional investment, the overall investment in the company will be in the region of USD 1 billion.

This is Bharti Airtel‟s second operation outside of India. The company launched its mobile services in Sri Lanka in January 2009 on a state-of-the-art 3.5G network. On July 19, 2007, the company crossed the 1 million customers mark in the first 70 days of operation.

3.5.1 Introduction in Bangladesh

Sheba Telecom (PVT Ltd)-after talking lots- finally was granted license in 1989 to operate in the rural areas of 199 upazilas. Later it obtained GSM license in 1996 to extend its business to cellular mobile, radio telephone services. It launched operation in the last quarter of 1997 as a Bangladesh-Malaysia joint venture.

last quarter of 1997 as a Bangladesh-Malaysia joint venture. In July, 2004, it was reported that

In July, 2004, it was reported that Egypt based Orascom Telecom is set to purchase the Malaysian stakes in Sheba Telecom through a hush-hush deal, as Sheba had failed to tap the business potentials in Bangladesh mainly due to a chronic feud between its Malaysian and Bangladeshi partners. An agreement was reached with Orascom worth US$25 million was finalized in secret. The pact has been kept secret for legal reasons, considering financial fallout and because of the feud.

The main reason for the undercover dealing was the joint venture agreement between the Bangladeshi and the Malaysian partners, which dictates that if any party sells its Sheba shares, the other party will enjoy the first right to buy that.

Banglalink attained 1 million subscribers by december 2005 and 3 million subscribers in october 2006. in less than two years which is by december 2007, banglalink overtook aktel to become the second largest operator in bangladesh with more than 7.1 million customers. banglalink currently has 20.05million subscribers as of april 2011, representing a market share of 27.03%

as of april 2011, representing a market share of 27.03% Growth over the last years have

Growth over the last years have been fuelled with innovative products and services targeting different market segments, aggressive improvement of network quality and dedicated customer care, creating an extensive distribution network across the country, and establishing a strong brand that emotionally connected customers with banglalink.

Integrated Services Ltd. (ISL), the Bangladeshi partner, was being „officially‟ shown as purchasing the shares held by Technology

Resources Industries (TRI) of Malaysia for $15 million. ISL then paid another $10 million to Standard Chartered Bank to settle Sheba's liabilities.

In September, 2004, Orascom Telecom Holdings purchased 100% of the shares of Sheba Telecom (Pvt.) Limited (“Sheba”). It was acquired for US$60 million. Sheba had a base of 59,000 users, of whom 49,000 were regular when it was sold. Afterward it was re- branded and launched its services under the “Banglalink” brand on February 10, 2005. Banglalink‟s license is a nationwide 15-year GSM license and will expire in November,

2011.

In March, 2008, Sheba Telecom (Pvt.) Limited changed its name as Orascom Telecom Bangladesh Limited, matching its parent company name. banglalink attained 1 million subscribers by december 2005 and 3 million subscribers in october 2006. in less than two years which is by december 2007, banglalink overtook aktel to become the second largest operator in bangladesh with more than 7.1 million customers. banglalink currently has 20.05million subscribers as of april 2011, representing a market share of 27.03%.

Orascom Telecom Bangladesh Limited ("banglalink") is fully owned by Orascom telecom holding s.a.e, egypt, ("oth"); the ultimate parent company of the group is vimpelcom, the 6th largest mobile phone operator in the world. banglalink was acquired by oth in 2004, and after a complete overhaul and the deployment of a new gsm network, its telecommunication services were re-launched under the brand name banglalink. when banglalink began operations in bangladesh in february 2005, its impact was felt immediately: overnight mobile telephony became an affordable option for customers across a wide range of market segments.

Banglalink‟s success was based on a simple mission: "bringing mobile telephony to the masses" which was the cornerstone of its strategy. banglalink changed the mobile phone status from luxury to a necessity and brought mobile telephone to the general people of bangladesh and made a place in their hearts. the mobile phone has become the symbol for the positive change in bangladesh.

This positive change that is quite correctly attributed to banglalink, has become the corporate positioning of banglalink and is translated in their slogan "making a difference" or "din bodol". "making a difference" not only in the telecom industry, but also through its products and services, to the lives of its customers. this corporate stance of "making a difference" has been reflected in everything banglalink does.

CONCLUSION & RECOMENDATION

CHAPTER SEVEN CONCLUSION & RECOMENDATION

7.1

Conclusion

Measuring customer’s satisfaction has become an important phenomenon in the service industry. As a service industry mobile phone network service companies should deliver quality services so that customers are satisfied and have positive attitudes towards the services. The study has been conducted in the Khulna region and found some important factors regarding customer’s satisfaction in order to measure the customer satisfaction of Mobile Phone Service Companies in Bangladesh. It has been found from the study that customers give much emphasis on Call services as well as Networks but mostly Call. Therefore the study recommends that the Mobile Operators can improve the quality of services further.

Every Companies are giving quality services. But one is not giving all types of services nicely. Some are good at some factor that other are good at some other different factor.

This is virtually a partial study for evaluating the customer’s satisfaction because all the variables have not been taken for consideration for factor measurement. The study has been conducted despite some of the limitations. The study is expected to contribute to the social and economic perspective in the country.

7.2 Recommendations

Though Mobile Phone Network service Companies performing well in delivering desired services to their valued customers, they can be careful about some service issues. After analyzing the study we have made the following recommendation that can be taken to improve customer satisfaction by the operators:

Here call charge reduced and charges of Value added services can also be deducted. It can improve customer satisfaction of Grameenphone. Some attractive offers that females want most. It can attract female customers.

Network can be improved so that satisfaction will go up of Airtel.

Good service strategy to get the market and give attractive features that attracts male customers most can be implemented by Banglalink.

An All in all effort to make condition good of Citycell.

Improved Internet service and Network Facilities may increase Customer satisfaction of Teletalk.

Lessening call prices, giving attractive VAS, Lowering cost of Internet service and a good network may improve all companies customer satisfaction.
