THE SERVUCTION MODEL (Hoffman & Bateson)
This model used to illustrate factors that influence service experience, including thosethat are visible and invisible to consumer.Invisible component consists of invisible organizations and systems. It refers to therules, regulations and processes upon which the organization is based. Although theyare invisible to the customers, they have a very profound effect on the consumersservice experience.Visible part consists of 3 parts: Serviscape (inanimate environment), contact personnel/service providers, and other consumers.Servicescape- It refers to the use of physical evidence to design service environments.It consists of ambient conditionssuch as music, inanimate objects that assist the frm incompleting is tasks, such as furnishing and business equipment. All non-livingfeatures present during service encounter. Contact personnel: :Employees other than primary providers that interact with consumer.Service Provider: Primary provider of core service, such as dentist, physician or instructor.Other Customers- Customer A : Recipient of bundle of benefits created throughservice experience and customer B : Other customers who are part of Customers A’sexperience.Servuction model demonstrates consumers are an integral part of service process.
