CHAPTER II REVIEW OF LITERATURE

24

REVIEW OF LITERATURE
Tracey S. Dagger, Maria M. Raciti, (2011), The findings suggest that when a strong favourable match exists between country and product image then COO will positively influence product evaluation and willingness to buy. Conversely, when an unfavourable mismatch is evident COO would negatively influence consumers' product evaluations and willingness to buy. Heinrich Daub, Rudolf Ergenzinger, (2005), A first attempt to put these roles and relationships in a sustainability context providing an impression of all possible needs, wants, and expectations a company can expect from its customers. This notion alters marketing's view of the customer and brings about a new understanding of customer satisfaction. Erdener Kaynak, Orsay Kucukemiroglu, Akmal S. Hyder, (2000),the finding suggest that in recent years, consumers worldwide have been having increased access to a wide variety of products and services from other countries. Furthermore, with advances in satellite communication, travel, television outreach and Internet access as well as increased education, consumers all over the world are becoming more aware of the products/services available throughout the world. As a result, the significance of products county-of-origin images in influencing consumer behavior is increasing rapidly. An understanding of the role of COO images for imported products as against domestic ones would aid in the formulation of better marketing plans, strategies and policies by companies of both domestic and international origin. The purpose of this empirical research study is to examine Bangladeshi consumers quality perceptions of products outsourced from nine foreign countries from where the country sources most of its product needs and compare them with their perceptions of domestic products. Study findings indicated that Bangladeshi consumers overwhelmingly preferred western made products, though there were differences in their perceptions across product classes as well as degree of suitability of sourcing countries. Arunoday Saha, (1992), the finding suggest that ideas regarding the basic character of humanity assume importance wherever people interact with one another from the family to the political state, to the business enterprise. These conceptions, ranging from pessimism to optimism, from notions that evil, predatory competition on the one hand to goodness, co- operation and virtue on the other characterise the intrinsic disposition of people, derive from the culture to which the individual belongs, moulding his values and conditioning his behaviour. They not only affect the quality of human relations present in any collectivity, but exercise critical influence on the theories and practices of social control. The understanding of a range of social parameters is considerably enhanced when viewed from the perspective of prevailing cultural ideas about human nature itself.

G. Javalgi, Charles L. Martin, Patricia R. Todd, (2004),the finding suggest that advancements in information and communication technologies have created unprecedented opportunities to services providers in both developing and developed countries. The service sector represents one of the fastest growing areas of exports in the global trade. The Internet and e-commerce make it possible to sell a variety of services, ranging from airline tickets to financial services, from anywhere in the world, around the clock. International delivery of services through electronic means is creating value in the supply chain by the reduction of many of the barriers to entry. This paper focuses on the determinants influencing the diffusion and export of e-services across borders. The paper also presents strategic challenges, followed by implications for service providers. Durriya Z. Khairullah, Zahid Y. Khairullah, (1999), the finding suggest that the paper examines relationships between acculturation, affective attitude toward the advertisement (Aad), and purchase intention (PI) of Asian-Indian immigrants. Our results indicate that (i) Aad as well as PI of Asian-Indian immigrants for the Indian versus the American advertisements vary within and across the stages of acculturation: low, moderate, and high, and (ii) there is a strong positive relationship between Aad and PI. Our results imply that the degree of acculturation (DA) should be considered in advertising. Low and moderate acculturated Asian-Indians would be more effectively reached by developing Indian advertisements depicting Indian cultural themes rather than American advertisements showing mainstream American culture. High acculturated Asian-Indian immigrants should be reached by American advertisements rather than Indian advertisements. Our findings also confirm that the more consumers like an advertisement the more likely they are to indicate an intention to purchase the advertised product. Arunoday Saha, (1992), The findings suggest that ideas regarding the basic character of humanity assume importance wherever people interact with one another from the family to the political state, to the business enterprise. These conceptions, ranging from pessimism to optimism, from notions that evil, predatory competition on the one hand to goodness, co- operation and virtue on the other characterise the intrinsic disposition of people, derive from the culture to which the individual belongs, moulding his values and conditioning his behaviour. They not only affect the quality of human relations present in any collectivity, but exercise critical influence on the theories and practices of social control. The understanding of a range of social parameters is considerably enhanced when viewed from the perspective of prevailing cultural ideas about human nature itself.

Judith J. Marshall, Louise A. Heslop, (1988), The findings suggest that when a strong favourable match exists between country and product image then COO will positively influence product evaluation and willingness to buy. Conversely, when an unfavourable mismatch is evident COO would negatively influence consumers' product evaluations and willingness to buy. Luiz Moutinho, (1992),Indian shippers use 45 criteria in the container carrier selection process and out of these, low freight is ranked as the most important criterion and pricing flexibility is the
26

second most important one. In the list, these are the only two criteria found to be with more than 10 per cent importance. The least importance is given to five criteria: gifts and compliments, online booking, physical facilities, professional appearance and trade announcements which are weighed with 0.10 per cent importance. The paper has explored and added several new carrier selection criteria to the existing transportation literature. Awad B. El-Haddad, Mohammad A. Almahmeed, (1992),The paper finds that it is possible, for example, to apply the theoretical framework to case studies in pharmaceutical markets. Fiona Davies, Luiz Moutinho, Bruce Curry, (1996),Triggers for the adoption are the internal factors (i.e. need to survive, sustain competitiveness, and increase operational effectiveness) and external factors (i.e. institutional push, trade barrier, and company image). The selection framework and the theory of selecting QM and improvement initiatives explain the four selection views of fashion setting, pay-off, strategic fit, and organisation fit. Mark M.H. Goode, Luiz A. Moutinho, Charles Chien, (1996),conducted a research to find out usage of weight company within the model which suggest that if weighting machine making wish to increase customers overall satisfaction and the usage of available services they must target factors which directly affect customers expectations and perceived risk.

CHAPTER IV RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

4.1Research Design

Research Design is the basic framework, which provides the guidelines the study; it is the arrangement of conditions & analysis in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure. It was a descriptive research, which has been done by making an in-depth study to get knowledge about the subject.

4.2Data Collection Method

There are two types of data:

Primary Secondary

The secondary data refers to those data, which have been gathered, from the agency & Company itself. On the other hand primary data gathered by the researcher afresh for the specific study undertaken by him. Primary data can be collected by three methods:

Observation Survey Personal Interview

I have chosen the survey method with the help of Questionnaire for the data collection method.

32

4.3Research Instruments Research Instrument calls by the name of tool of collecting the data. As above I has chosen questionnaire as research instrument, which gives most satisfactory results.

4.4Sample Plan

In sample plan the researcher has to decide about the sample unit, sample size, sampling procedure and contact method.

Universe: Users of Private & Public Sectors

4.4.1Sample unit: This part of the sample plan involve the decision about the respondents whether Madical company, Manufacturing units & Industrial sectors, Construction houses or a combination of all of them. 4.4.2Sample size: It involves researchers sample size decision about how many units to be surveyed. The sample size include 120 respondents which is combination of different types of respondents Contact method: The last issue to be decided in sampling plan is to determine the contact method i.e. how the selected unit be approached. Various methods available are mail survey, telephonic survey and personal interviews. The researcher has used personal interviews and telephonic survey as methods to get the information and questionnaire filled.

33

4.5 Limitation of the Study


I have tried to make the research work as accurate & authentic as possible. However the following constraints were still unavoidable: The information provided by the respondents on which all the results were drawn cannot be denied that here was always a possibility of response error. The respondents were in segments so the time taken to interview with them was too much. The study was conducted within a time frame work of 6 week duration only. The respondents feel reluctant about the survey conducted. Secondary data could not be fully utilized because of difficulty in assessing it.

Conclusion: I have studied customers needs of weighting equipments in the Delhi and NCR market and I found that most of the customers of Delhi and NCR market are price conscious and some of the customers are brand conscious. There are lots of customers who are not aware about the Weigh India weight calibration services and they are depends upon the local brand. I found that lot of the customer are ready to switch over on Weigh India equipments due to its brand name and services given to the customers. On the bases of data analyses I have conclude that there is need of weight security in market but due to unawareness of these equipments there is requirement of effective advertising and marketing strategies to make aware the customers about security equipments. I have given rank to different factors responsible for demand/need of the security products, these factors are as follows:

Factors Price Quality Brand Advertising/Marketing Companys sales after services Customer behavior
