INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY.

The marketing concept is consumer oriented and the emphasis is more on the consumer rather
than on the product. The essence of modern marketing lies in building of profit along with creating
meaningful value satisfaction for the customers, whose needs and desires have to be coordinated with the
set of products and production programmes. Therefore, marketing success of an enterprise depends on its
ability to create a community ofsatisfied consumers. All the business activities should be carried out in
ways which are directed towards the satisfaction of the consumer needs.
Consumer behavior is affected by a branded protect host of variables ranging from personal,
professional needs, attitudes and values, personality characteristics, social economic and cultural
background, age, gender, professional status to social influences of various kinds ---exerted a family,
friends, colleagues, and society as a whole. The combination of these factors help the consumer in
decision making further Psychological factors that as individual consumer needs, motivations, perceptions
attitudes, the learning process personality characteristics are the similarities, which operate across the
different types of people and influence their behavior. There are four major factors which influences on
the buying behavior of consumer.

1. Cultural factors
2. Social factors
3. Personal factors
4. Psychological factors

Marketing starts with the consumers and ends with the consumer. Satisfaction of the consumers
becomes the most important goal of a business enterprise. The effort to ensure consumer satisfaction lies
in understanding the consumer, his likes dislikes, his expectations and motivation.

An analysis of the consumers behavior in terms of consumer consumption patterns, consumer


preferences, consumer motivation, consumer buying process and shopping behavior is very much helpful

to formulate a firms marketing strategy. So the ultimate objective of a business firm is to create a
consumer who is said to be pivot around whom the entire business of a firm revolve.

Thus the marketing concept is consumer oriented and the emphasis is more on the consumer
rather than on the product. The essence of modern marketing lies in building of
profit along with creating meaningful value satisfaction for the costumers, whose needs and desires have
to be coordinated with the set of products and production programmes. Therefore, marketing success of
an enterprise depends as its ability to create a community of satisfied consumers. All the business
activities should be carried out in ways which are directed towards the satisfaction of the consumer needs.
A consumer decision to purchase a particular brand of Samsung mobileproduct consumers result to

1.INTRODUCTION AND DESIGN OF THE STUDY

INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDy


Mobile phone (also known as a hand phone, wireless phone, cell phone, cellular
phone, cellular telephone or cell telephone) is a long-range, electronic device used
for mobile voice or data communication over a network of specialized base stations
known as cell sites. In addition to the standard voice function of a mobile phone,
telephone, current mobile phones may support many additional services, and
accessories, such as SMS for text messaging, email, packet switching for access to
the Internet, gaming, Bluetooth, infrared, camera with video recorder and MMS for
sending and receiving photos and video, MP3 player, radio and GPS. Most current
mobile phones connect to a cellular network of base stations (cell sites), which is in
turn interconnected to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) (the exception
is satellite phones).
There are several categories of mobile phones, from basic phones to feature phones such as music phones
and camera phones, to smart phones. PDA functionality to the basic mobile phone at the time. As
miniaturization and increased processing power of microchips has enabled ever more features to be added
to phones, the concept of the smart phone has evolved, and what was a high-end smart phone five years
ago, is a standard phone today.
The most advantage of these mobile devices are the satellite phone. This type of
phone communicates directly with an artificial satellite, which in turn relays calls to
a base station or another satellite phone. A single satellite can provide coverage to
a much greater area than terrestrial base stations. Since satellite phones are costly,
their use is typically limited to people in remote areas where no mobile phone
coverage exists, such as mountain climbers, mariners in the open sea, and news
reporters at disaster sites.

The mobile management system project deals with the mobile sales, purchase sales
and sales return, and to get the management report of the project. This mobile
management project mainly concentrates on the customer satisfaction and the
Management satisfaction

INDUSTRY PROFILE

The mobile subscriber base is expected to zoom to 893 million by 2012. This is a 150 million
increase of what was projected earlier, as per a report by Cellular Operators Association of India
(COAI). The COAIs earlier estimates had shown that mobile user base will reach 743 million by
2012. The major reason stated for the increase is the huge adoption of the mobile services in the
rural areas, reported The Business Line.

India is now the second largest mobile market in the world after China, which has over 650
million subscribers, with India having 400 million mobile users. According to COAIs projection,
there will be 1.24 billion mobile users in 2015 which means one phone for every Indian.

We have revised the projections because the rate at which infrastructure is growing is faster than
what we had expected. Operators are moving into the hinterland and uncovered areas. Secondly,
we are getting almost 50 per cent of our new additions from the rural areas. The third factor is
that the level of competition has increased with new players in the sector which again leads to
faster deployment of networks, says T. V. Ramachandran, Director-General, COAI.

Indian growth story is here to stay. I will push back against any view that says to the contrary.
There is still a huge untapped market in both rural and urban areas, says Atul Bindal, President,
Mobility, Bharti Airtel. According to him, three out of five new subscribers are now coming from
non-urban areas and expect to get the companys next 100 million users in another two-three
years.

India's fast-growing mobile phone industry kept up its pace of heady growth
in January with subscriber base jumping nearly 75 percent over the same
month last year, data released by an industry body showed

Figures from the Cellular Operators Association of India showed that the industry
had 5.725 million subscribers, up from 3.27 million at the end of January 2001 and
5.48 million subscribers at the end of 2001.
The data showed that the industry added 246,281 users in January, led by the
four main city markets of Bombay, New Delhi, Madras and Calcutta, which
together added 93,070 customers. This was three percent less than the number
of customers added in the previous month, but up 48 percent over January 2001
levels.
Among firms which provide services in these four cities, New Delhi operator
Bharti Cellular, a unit of the soon-to-be-listed Bharti Tele-Ventures, recorded the
highest increase of nearly 31,000 customers during the month. COAI said the
country's telecom market with the lowest subscriber potential - called "C" circles
- grew the fastest, but on a much lower subscriber base.

The Indian government classifies the country's telecoms market into "metro" and
"A", "B" and "C" circles or zones, based on subscriber potential. According to
COAI data, the subscriber base in "C" circles leapt 99 percent while in the
lucrative "metro" market, it grew 81 percent. The subscriber base in "A" circles
grew 87 percent while the "B" circle grew nearly 49 percent.

At the end of January, metro circles had 2.25 million subscribers, "A" circles 1.96
million, "B" circles 1.3 million and "C" circles 200,656 subscribers, the data
showed. The telecom industry is one of the fastest growing industries in India.
India has nearly 200 million telephone lines making it the third largest network in
the world after China and USA. With a growth rate of 45%, Indian telecom
industry

has

the

highest

growth

rate

in

the

world.

History of Indian Telecommunications started in 1851 when the first operational


land lines were laid by the government near Calcutta (seat of British power).
Telephone services were introduced in India in 1881. In 1883 telephone services
were merged with the postal system. Indian Radio Telegraph Company (IRT) was

formed in 1923. After independence in 1947, all the foreign telecommunication


companies were nationalized to form the Posts, Telephone and Telegraph (PTT), a
monopoly run by the government's Ministry of Communications. Telecom sector
was considered as a strategic service and the government considered it best to
bring under state's control.
The first wind of reforms in telecommunications sector began to flow in 1980s
when the private sector was allowed in telecommunications equipment
manufacturing. In 1985, Department of Telecommunications (DOT) was
established. It was an exclusive provider of domestic and long-distance
service that would be its own regulator (separate from the postal system). In
1986, two wholly government-owned companies were created: the Videsh
Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL) for international telecommunications and
Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) for service in metropolitan
areas.
In 1990s, telecommunications sector benefited from the general opening up
of the economy. Also, examples of telecom revolution in many other
countries, which resulted in better quality of service and lower tariffs, led
Indian policy makers to initiate a change process finally resulting in opening
up of telecom services sector for the private sector. National Telecom Policy
(NTP) 1994 was the first attempt to give a comprehensive roadmap for the
Indian telecommunications sector. In 1997, Telecom Regulatory Authority of
India (TRAI) was created. TRAI was formed to act as a regulator to facilitate
the growth of the telecom sector. New National Telecom Policy was adopted in
1999 and cellular services were also launched in the same year.
Telecommunication sector in India can be divided into two segments: Fixed
Service Provider (FSPs), and Cellular Services. Fixed line services consist of
basic services, national or domestic long distance and international long
distance services. The state operators (BSNL and MTNL), account for almost
90 per cent of revenues from basic services. Private sector services are
presently available in selective urban areas, and collectively account for less
than 5 per cent of subscriptions. However, private services focus on the

business/corporate sector, and offer reliable, high- end services, such as


leased lines, ISDN, closed user group and videoconferencing.
Cellular services can be further divided into two categories: Global System for
Mobile Communications (GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA).
The GSM sector is dominated by Airtel, Vodafone-Hutch, and Idea Cellular,
while the CDMA sector is dominated by Reliance and Tata Indicom. Opening
up of international and domestic long distance telephony services are the
major growth drivers for cellular industry. Cellular operators get substantial
revenue from these services, and compensate them for reduction in tariffs on
airtime, which along with rental was the main source of revenue. The
reduction in tariffs for airtime, national long distance, international long
distance,

and

handset

prices

has

driven

demand.

The telecom sector is also afflicted by a number of restraints. These include:

Sluggish pace of reform process.

Lack of infrastructure in semi-rural and rural areas, which makes it difficult to


make inroads into this market segment as service providers have to incur a
huge initial fixed cost.

Limited spectrum availability.

But notwithstanding these constraints, telecom sector has undergone a


revolution in the past decade and has played a major part in bridging the
rural-urban

divide.

REVIEW OF LITERATURE:

The challenge of responding to the environmental issues has changed many


aspects of the ways businesses operate, and this is particularly true of
electronics companies. "Going green" in the IT industry is proving a major
challenge, as significant shifts in thinking are needed to secure the benefits
associated with being green. Using a content analysis method, we have
investigated and expanded the concept of Green IT, as implemented by four
major electronic companies. By analyzing these companies' environmental
reports, we have established a set of theoretical concepts of Green IT, driven
by companies' practical implementations. We proposed nine propositions
outlining the theoretical implications. Additionally, our analysis demonstrated
that the principal focus of electronic companies is green disposal practices,
followed by energy efficiency efforts. We also concluded that regulations and
policies coupled with heightened awareness and environmental responsibility
on the part of the company can encourage Green IT innovation. This paper
also provides a discussion of the results and of the contributions made by this
research.

different stages of the development. In addition, we examine what may be
the obstacles towards the successful implementation of commerce in
Sweden. A comparison is made with the reflection to our limitations. By
comparing these two countries through the mobile value chain we hope to
gain a greater understanding of the obstacles that Sweden needs to address.
Amongst the major obstacles that were observed during this research were
pricing and amount of services provided.

Measuring

the efficiency of customer satisfaction and loyalty for

mobile phone brands with DEA, Expert

Systems with Applications, Volume 39,

Issue 1, January 2012, Pages 99106

The concept of customer satisfaction and loyalty (CS&L) has attracted much
attention in recent years. A key motivation for the fast growing emphasis on
CS&L can be attributed to the fact that higher customer satisfaction and
loyalty can lead to stronger competitive position resulting in larger market
share and profitability. Using a data envelopment analysis (DEA) approach, in
this study we analyzed and compared CS&L efficiency for mobile phone
brands in an emerging telecommunication market, Turkey. The constructs of
European Customer Satisfaction Index (ECSI) model are treated and used as
input and output indicators of our DEA model. Drawing on the perceptual
responses of 251 mobile phone users, the DEA models reveal that from the
top six mobile phone brands in Turkey, Nokia features as the most efficient
brand followed by LG and Sonny Ericsson in terms of CS&L efficiency, while
Motorola, Samsung and Panasonic rank as the least efficient brands.

(2008) "Customer satisfaction and loyalty: start with the product, culminate
with the brand", Journal of Consumer Marketing, Vol. 25 Iss: 5, pp.302 313

The paper takes the form of empirical research on a partial application of the
typology.
This study introduces a typology underscoring the pursuit of satisfaction and
development of loyalty in three conditions of product presence versus brand
presence, that is, product alone, brand alone, and product and brand combined.
Results show that the relationship satisfactionloyalty is significantly present
when evaluating products alone albeit a weaker presence than when evaluating
brand alone. Such unequal presence is corroborated in both traditional (bottled
wine) and innovative (electronic) products even though it is much stronger in
innovative products. The relationship satisfactionloyalty is also present when
evaluating product and brand combined, indicating that there is an intermediate
position between product and brand. In contrast, the literature treats brand and
productbrand as being in the same category thereby diminishing the
importance of a useful difference between brand and productbrand.

into the look-and-feel of mobile phone design, Ergonomics, Volume

46, Issue 13-14, 2003


The look-and-feel of the mobile phone was investigated using a consumer survey.
Seventy-eight participants evaluated the design of 50 different mobile telephones
on

the

perceived

luxuriousness,

scale

simplicity,

of

image/impression

attractiveness,

characteristics,

colourfulness,

texture,

including:
delicacy,

harmoniousness, salience, rigidity, and overall satisfaction. Stepwise multiple linear


regression analysis were used to evaluate results. The results showed that the
image and impression characteristics of the products were closely related to the
human-product interface specifications as well as overall shape of the product.
Design variables such as texture, use of surface curvature, surface treatment,
operating sound, and control response ratio were perceived as important by
customers. This study also suggested a series of statistical processes for selecting
and screening the critical design variables closely related to the customer's
impression of a product. The product evaluation and analysis methods could be
generalized to other consumer products.

Chen Ling, Wonil Hwang, Gavriel Salvendy, Diversified users satisfaction with
advanced mobile phone features, Universal Access in the Information Society,
August 2006, Volume 5, Issue 2, pp 239-249

This paper reports a study which scrutinized users preference levels with five
new mobile phone design features facilitating universal information access
through mobile phones: camera, colour screen, voice-activated dialling,
Internet browsing, and wireless connectivity (e.g. Bluetooth, infrared, etc.).
The survey study involved college students and investigated the degree to
which each of the above features impacts the users overall satisfaction and
enhances the potential of mobile phones to contribute to different aspects of
universal access. Our results show that colour screen, voice-activated
dialling, and Internet browsing feature can strongly predict users satisfaction
level, and their preference levels together account for 22.7% of the variance

of the users overall satisfaction. Users satisfaction levels are significantly


different between models with colour screen feature and those without, and
models with Internet browsing features and those without.
