INTRODUCTION
Research Motivation
A multitude of companies today has already identified the need to create a loyal customer base and acknowledges that maintaining existing customers and extending business with them is significantly less expensive than acquiring new customers. Empirical proof of the proliferation of such customer loyalty efforts in the business world is e.g. provided in the form of loyalty programs, which many companies have installed during the past years. By engaging in efforts aimed at creating customer loyalty, which in turn fosters financial success in monetary terms firms react to increasing competitive challenges.

Within research, the investigation of customer loyalty gained importance when the classic marketing paradigm with its instrumental and transactional orientation proved unsuitable in the context of longer-term business relationships. Instead, the relationship marketing approach, which is specifically concerned with the study of relational ex-changes, gained importance within research, serving as a conceptual foundation for the majority of customer loyalty researchers. The question of how loyalty develops has been subject to an abundance of research, leading to an expansive body of literature on loyalty determinants. The extant literature exploring different factors and their constituent effects on loyalty, however, reveals a strong focus on consumer goods and industrial equipment settings, while industrial services have received relatively little attention so far. In addition, the majority of articles incorporates merely a few potential determinants and thus fails to draw a comprehensive picture of the mechanisms of customer loyalty formation

Customer Satisfaction
The term logistics is often misinterpreted to mean transportation. In fact, the scope of logistics goes well beyond transportation. Logistics forms the system that ensures the delivery of the product in the entire supply pipeline. This includes transportation, packaging, storage and
6

handling methods, and information flow. The impact of logistics in the ability of a company to satisfy its customers cannot be overstated. All other efforts at modernization within a company would not bear fruit until the logistics system is carefully designed to facilitate the smooth and efficient flow of goods in the system.

The topic of logistics is relatively new in India. There have been some companies that have done work in this area, but a large number of companies are only now beginning to realize the benefits of designing and managing the entire supply chain. With India joining the global marketplace, the role of logistics assumes greater importance.

The industrial policies in India have prompted manufacturers to build plants in remote, backward areas due to inexpensive land and tax benefits. This poses some serious logistical problems. Apart from a poor road and transportation network, the existing communications system in India leaves a lot to be desired by any international standard. It is in this context that logistics has to be considered in India.

Customer Satisfaction in 7 Steps


1. Encourage Face-to-Face Dealings

This is the most daunting and downright scary part of interacting with a customer. If you're not used to this sort of thing it can be a pretty nerve-wracking experience. Rest assured, though, it does get easier over time. It's important to meet your customers face to face at least once or even twice during the course of a project.

2. Respond to Messages Promptly & Keep Your Clients Informed

This goes without saying really. We all know how annoying it is to wait days for a response to an email or phone call. It might not always be practical to deal with all customers' queries within the space of a few hours, but at least email or call them back and let them know you've received their

message and you'll contact them about it as soon as possible. Even if you're not able to solve a problem right away, let the customer know you're working on it.

3. Be Friendly and Approachable

A fellow Site Pointer once told me that you can hear a smile through the phone. This is very true. It's very important to be friendly, courteous and to make your clients feel like you're their friend and you're there to help them out. There will be times when you want to beat your clients over the head repeatedly with a blunt object - it happens to all of us. It's vital that you keep a clear head, respond to your clients' wishes as best you can, and at all times remain polite and courteous.

4. Have a Clearly-Defined Customer Service Policy

This may not be too important when you're just starting out, but a clearly defined customer service policy is going to save you a lot of time and effort in the long run. If a customer has a problem, what should they do? If the first option doesn't work, then what? Should they contact different people for billing and technical enquiries? If they're not satisfied with any aspect of your customer service, who should they tell? There's nothing more annoying for a client than being passed from person to person, or not knowing who to turn to. Making sure they know exactly what to do at each stage of their enquiry should be of utmost importance. So make sure your customer service policy present on your site -- and anywhere else it may be useful.

5. Attention to Detail (also known as 'The Little Niceties')

Have you ever received a Happy Birthday email or card from a company you Were a client of? Have you ever had a personalized sign-up confirmation email for a Service that you could tell was typed from scratch? These little niceties can be time consuming and aren't always cost effective, but remember to do them. Even if it's as small as sending a Happy Holidays email to all your customers, it's something. It shows you care; it shows there are real people on the other end of
8

that screen or telephone; and most importantly, it makes the customer feel welcomed, wanted and valued.

6. Anticipate Your Client's Needs & Go Out Of Your Way to Help Them Out

Sometimes this is easier said than done! However, achieving this supreme level of understanding with your clients will do wonders for your working relationship . 7. Honour Your Promises

It's possible this is the most important point in this article. The simple message: when you promise something, deliver. Clients don't like to be disappointed. Sometimes, something may not get done, or you might miss a deadline through no fault of your own. Projects can be late, technology can fail and sub-contractors don't always deliver on time. In this case a quick apology and assurance it'll be ready ASAP wouldn't go a miss.

Method to Measure Customer Satisfaction

According to Sir Kevin Cacioppo: It takes continuous effort to maintain high customer satisfaction levels.

As markets shrink, companies are scrambling to boost customer satisfaction and keep their current customers rather than devoting additional resources to chase potential new customers. The claim that it costs five to eight times as much to get new customers than to hold on to old ones is key to understanding the drive toward benchmarking and tracking customer satisfaction. Measuring customer satisfaction is a relatively new concept to many companies that have been focused exclusively on income statements and balance sheets. Companies now recognize that the new global economy has changed things forever. Increased competition, crowded markets with
9

little product differentiation and years of continual sales growth followed by two decades of flattened sales curves have indicated to today's sharp competitors that their focus must change. Competitors that are prospering in the new global economy recognize that measuring customer satisfaction is key. Only by doing so can they hold on to the customers they have and understand how to better attract new customers. The competitors who will be successful recognize that customer satisfaction is a critical strategic weapon that can bring increased market share and increased profits. The problem companies face, however, is exactly how to do all of this and do it well. They need to understand how to quantify measure and track customer satisfaction. Without a clear and accurate sense of what needs to be measured and how to collect, analyze and use the data as a strategic weapon to drive the business, no firm can be effective in this new business climate. Plans constructed using customer satisfaction research results can be designed to target customers and processes that are most able to extend profits. According to the Harvard Business Review, November/December 1995 The Gulf between satisfied customers and completely satisfies customers can swallow a business. Companies use the following methods to measure customer satisfaction.

1 ) Complaints and suggestion system:

Companies obtaining complaints through their customer service centers and further suggestions were given by customers to satisfy their desires.

2) Customer satisfaction surveys

Responsive companies obtain a direct measure of customer satisfaction by periodic surveys. They send questionnaires to random sample of their customers to find out how they feel about various aspects of the companys performance and also solicit views on their competitors performance. It is useful to measure the customers willingness to

10

recommend the company and brand to other persons.

3) Lost Customer Analysis.

Companies should contact customers who have stopped buying or who have switched to another supplier to learn why this happened.

4) Consumer Behavior Vs Consumption Behavior

Consumer behavior refers to the manner in which an individual reaches decision related to the selection, purchases and use of goods and services. Walters and Paul says that, Consumer behavior is the process whereby the individuals decides what, when, how and from whom to purchase goods & services Consumer behavior relates to an individual person (Micro behavior) where as consumption behavior relates to and to the mass or aggregate of individuals (Macro behavior) consumers behavior as a study focuses on the decision process of the individual consumer or consuming unit such as the family.

In contrast the consumption behavior as a study is to do with the explanation of the behavior of the aggregate of consumers or the consuming unit. Consumer is a pivot, around which the entire system of marketing revolves. The study of buyer behavior is one of the most important keys to successful mark.

LITERATURE REVIEW
Service Quality in Business The fiercely competitive environment of the service industry has demonstrated that service quality is the most crucial factor determining a business survival and competitiveness (Parsuraman et al., 1985; Reichheld & Sasser, 1990). Service is the process of interaction between customers and the service provider (Grnroos, 1998). Overall, when considering the steel industry, quality management appears to be an appropriate strategy for managing steel facilities because steel management enables efficiency and effectiveness. Effectiveness indicators based on principles of customer service quality first measure customer expectations, and then compared them to customer perceptions of the business actual performance. Instruments for measuring the service quality, such as SERVQUAL and its related variants, have employed by several organizations in the service industry (Bindu et al., 2009). These instruments are designed for the service industry specifically. However, Saravanan and Rao (2007) found that certain important aspects of service quality were not included in the SERVQUAL model. Another instrument, SERVPERF, is now considered the most appropriate method for determining service quality (Grnroos, 2008). The perceived service quality of public utility services has a multilevel, multidimensional structure and comprises three primary dimensions: outcome, environment, and interaction (Changhong et al., 2008). This study employed the SERVPERF method to determine service quality in the steel industry. This method measures several aspects, namely, tangibles, reliability, responsiveness, assurance, and empathy (Sasser et al., 1978; Parasuraman et al., 1988; Changhong et al., 2008). Tangible indicates physical facilities, equipment, and personnel appearance. Reliability means that the enterprise can be able to execute the agreed services provided correctly and reliably. Responsiveness means the enterprise voluntarily wants to help customers and promptly provide services. Assurance means the professional service knowledge, courtesy, and trusted ability of employee makes customers feeling ease. Empathy means enterprise can provide individual service and care.

22

Customer Satisfaction
Customer satisfaction is another factor that affects customer loyalty to service enterprises. The definition of satisfaction is a persons approval or disappointment when comparing their opinion of services received with their original service expectations (Kotler & Keller, 2006). Therefore, customer satisfaction is a customers rational and emotional perceptions, which are based on service experiences (Matthew & Christine, 2000). In a service context, quality and value are proposed as antecedents of satisfaction; their effects on loyalty are mediated by satisfaction (Xiang, & James, 2010). Determining customer satisfaction includes consumers total satisfaction of service performance, consumer opinion, and national conditions (Singh, 1991; Manfred & Grund, 2000; Dermanov & Eklf, 2001; Chang & Yuan, 2002; Miguel, 2009). Kano developed a two-way quality model (now know as Kanos model) to define and categorize web community service quality dimensions, and understand user demands (Kuo, 2004). Kano found an increase in satisfaction and a decrease in dissatisfaction when analyzing improvements to certain quality elements. He used the results of his study as a reference to improve services provided to the web community. Combining the findings of previous studies, this research adopted five aspects for determining customer satisfaction, namely, service, product, situation, individual, and price (Zenithal & Bitner, 1996).

Customer Loyalty
The mean of customer loyalty is customers continuous purchasing behavior toward the merchandise or services of a specific company (Day, 1977; Lutz, 1986). However, Bhote (1996) believed that if a customer was satisfied with a companys commodities or services, they would want to promote that company positively through word-of-mouth. Improving customer loyalty in the service sector will increase economic returns (Reichheld, 1996). Therefore, competition in the service industry and the improved management and marketing strategies must be designed to retain and not acquire customers (Dwyer et al., 1987). Regarding evaluating customer loyalty, Parsuraman et al. (1994) believed that customer behavior, intent to repurchase, and recommendations through positive word-of-mouth should be assessed (Jones & Sasser, 1995;

23

Srinivasan et al., 2002) classified customer loyalty to three primary categories: primary behavior, secondary behavior, and intent to repurchase

26

Research Methodology
The aim is to study the satisfaction provided to customers by JSP. How much are customers are satisfied by products offered by JSP?

RESEARCH PLAN Research Design: Research Method Used Research Technique Used Descriptive & Exploratory Survey Questionnaire

Data Collection Sampling Plan No. of samples collected

From C.G. Convinience sampling 50

A descriptive and exploratory research was used to gain an insight into consumers perceived customer satisfaction offered by JSP. Secondary data were collected for the research. An undisguised structured questionnaire, was used for the research. The sample size used was 50 respondents. JSPL customers were selected on the basis of convenience sampling. The questionnaire is personally administered to the valued customers in English for better understanding.

RESEARCH DESIGN
I propose to first conduct a intensive secondary research to understand the full impact and implication of the industry, to review and critique the industry norms and reports, on which certain issues shall be

27

selected, which I feel remain unanswered or liable to change, this shall be further taken up in the next stage of exploratory research. This stage shall help me to restrict and select only the important question and issue, which inhabit growth and segmentation in the industry.

The various tasks that I have undertaken in the research design process are:

Defining the information need Design the exploratory, descriptive and causal research.

Procedure of Research:
The research process has four distinct yet interrelated steps for research analysis It has a logical and hierarchical ordering:

Determination of information research problem. Development of appropriate research design. Execution of research design. Communication of results. Each step is viewed as a separate process that includes a combination of task , step and specific procedure. The steps undertake are logical, objective, systematic, reliable, valid, impersonal and ongoing.

Primary Data:
Primary Data is the first hand data collected freshly for getting raw information. Primary Data is very important for processing any project, tenders, etc. It also forms the first base for the secondary data. Sources of Primary Data : 1. Questionnaire. 2. Experimentation. 3. Direct talk with the clients, etc.
28

Secondary Data:
Secondary Data unlike Primary data are second hand data collected for further processing. Secondary data uses data collected by someone else for its own usage. They are also very important as it gives valuable information to the researcher about past data or current hypothesis. Sources of Secondary Data: 1. Company journals. 2. Reports of Committee and Commissions. 3. Newspapers and Magazines. 4. Internet, etc.

Thus we can see how customer satisfaction important for any company, from the above study on Jindal steel & power limited (machinery division) we have seen the performance of JSPL and satisfaction level from their customer. It can be conclude that JSPL is the company who try to satisfy its customer to the fullest and also proved it. According to me if they follow the suggestions given above, JSPL will be able to increase satisfaction level significantly.
