Analysis: Standard Chartered bank is the first bank in Bangladesh who start the call center option in Bangladesh. Eow they are start creating their call center activated. -or this reason they try to make the customer call center oriented instead of branch oriented. SCB make many things free for customer if they collect through call center. But many problems associated with call center performance. The main problem which is the basic criteria of the call center is availability of phone line. The phone line is very much poor! sometimes branch employee can not connect the phone line when branch people suggest them about then they directly ask can you please connect the no. and branch guys fail to connect. But over all whenever customers make complain or want something from call center they will get that very soon.

-indings and Recommendations:


Consumer banking is number one profitable sector in Bangladesh. Chile it has solid revenue potential it involves close cooperation and coordination among several departments within the bank and liaison with a large number of entities. The following aspect should be taken under consideration to increase the customer satisfaction which ultimately help SCB to be profitable6 -irst things that Standard Chartered bank should do are maintaining the standard during recruiting the employees. An employee bears the brand name so if employees make some thing wrong that will ultimately affect Standard Chartered bank. And consumer banking directly deals with customer and they face the major problem of loosing customer if employees make something wrong. Second thing is Standard Chartered bank should create a new division whose major responsibility will be looking after the AT+ booths. These days people are interested to make their banking transaction through AT+ but due to some technical problem most of the time they face problem in AT+. So new division can solve this problem by solving the technical problem right on time and make servicing of machine regularly. -rom my survey most of the client or customer these days needs to come to the bank for Sanchayapatra coupon encashment. 4ere for better customer service Standard Chartered bank should introduce new software where customer can drop their Sanchayapatra and all the coupon will be en cashed automatically after maturity. This will increase the brands power on the mind of the customer. &revailing legal procedures is very lengthy and complicated. #t takes longer period to settle any kind of dispute. n the other hand! encashment of security after maturity is a long drawn process! i.e. generally takes : P 8 days. So! SCB should be more careful in the case of opening and closing different securities. So that after maturity customer gets them very .uickly and timely.


#n retrospect of the marvelous growth of consumer banking revenue over the last 09 years and contemplating the intensity of competition yet to come! it is crucial for SCB to rethink its strategies and marketing plan to sustain the growth consumer banking revenue. Correspondent banking service providers domiciled in Bangladesh are e5pected to be fighting for a bigger pie! as the growth prospect of the countryMs correspondent banking business is limited. ne of the ways to achieve that objective is to ma5imize consumer banking revenue generated from local clients and introduces more local products. At the same time Standard chartered bank must have to consider the consumer mind setup. As a multinational bank customer want more benefit from them then other 1 rd generation bank. So instead of making profit only they should care about the customer as well. They can start many new savings product like millionaire scheme. But here problem is that all these scheme is very costly. So they should introduce something for the middle class! but still SCB continuously working with upper class and upper middle class. Chen these types of facility is come on front then and only then Standard Chartered Bank can compete with other banks like 4SBC! &rime Bank! ,utch Bangla Bank. Customer is the heart of the bank and if SCB can make them satisfied and make them return to the bank with their deposit it will become the largest profitable bank in Bangladesh within a short period of time
