Conclusion

Understanding customer's behavior can help the company know how the customers evaluate service quality provided because they tend to compare what they expected with what they perceived to receive from a particular supplier. If their expectations were met or even exceeded, they believe that they received the high quality service. If the service provided is positive, customers are likely to be satisfied, therefore they repeat purchases and build loyalty to that supplier. A service company must satisfy and even exceed the expectations of their customers. They need to be consistent with the service they offer to delight their customers before, during and after the service. Learnings * As future marketers, we need to identify and understand the needs and wants of the customers to be able to werve them well. * The reason why a service business become successful is when they satisfy and even exceed the expectations of their customers. * As a service company, you must accept the feedback from the customers that you may know what you need to improve to your service to satisfy them. * As a service provider in order to gain customer loyalty, you should understand their situation. * Service providers must consider how to value customer because these customers tend to shift on the other services when their expectations were not met and not delighted with their needs and wants. ...read more.
