CHAPTER 1 : INTRODUCTION TO SERVICE INDUSTRY
Meaning of service industry : REMOVE THE SPACE BETWEEN WORDS AND :
Service industry is the industry which provides different kinds of services to different individuals or a group of individuals for something in return which is most likely to be the monetary rewards. These service industries are also working with some kind of interest of earning profit .
Definition of service industry :
An industry made up of companies that primarily earn revenue through providing intangible products and services. Service industry companies are involved in retail, transport, distribution, food services, as well as other service-dominated businesses. Also called service sector, tertiary sector of industry.
History of service industry
Service industry, an industry in that piece of the economy that makes benefits instead of unmistakable items. Financial specialists isolate all monetary action into two general classes, goods and services . Goods-producing industries are agriculture, mining, manufacturing, and construction; each of them creates some kind of tangible object. Service industries include everything else: banking, communications, wholesale and retail trade, all professional services such as engineering, computer software development, and medicine, non-profit economic activity, all consumer services, and all government services, including defence and administration of justice.
The extent of the world economy dedicated to administrations developed consistently amid the twentieth century. In the United States, for instance, the administration division represented the greater part the total national output (GDP) in 1929, 66% of every 1978, and more than seventy five percent in 1993. In the mid 21st century, benefit ventures represented more than three-fifths of the worldwide GDP and utilized more than 33% of the work constrain around the world.
The least complex clarification for the development of administration ventures is that merchandise generation has turned out to be progressively motorized. Since machines enable a littler workforce to create more substantial merchandise, the administration elements of appropriation, administration, back, and deals turn out to be moderately more imperative. Development in the administration part likewise comes about because of an expansive incrementing government work. Some of the services which was provided were teaching , working professionals skills to the companies and trainees ,banking and other financial services , healthcare etc . Then and now , it can be considered that service industries are equally important as the manufacturing industries .There are some of the things that cannot be derived out of a tangible product sometimes a man has to rely on another man to get the benefit which is derived out of an intangible efforts of another man .
CLASSIFICATION OF SERVICE INDUSTRY
Some of the service industries include people and some services can be manual while some can be mechanised or automated ,therefore based upon all this service industries can be classified into two broad categories and there are as below :
1. Classification based on the service of tangible action : this classification type includes all the tangible services which involves people or product directly .
– Services for people : services like healthcare , banking facility , insurance facility , services provided by the saloons , restaurants etc. constitute the tangible service category which can be fetched by people.
– Services for goods : for example , goods from Chennai has to be transported to Bangalore this kind of service(here , transportation ) constitutes tangible service category which is for goods by the people . it can also include services like repair and maintenance , insurance for bikes , cars etc .
2. classification based on intangibility service : in this type of classification , it includes all those services which cannot be tangibly quantified .
– services directed at people’s mind : Services sold through influencing the creativity of humans are classified on the basis of intangibility.
– Services directed at intangible assets – Banking, legal services, and insurance services are some of the services most difficult to price and quantify.
3. Other classification :
The most general type of classification is the list of the following services :
• Business services: (BOLD THE SIDE HEADINGS) It is the most popular and growing business services in the country. Business services include services which are related to the business like financing , shipping , customer relationship management etc .The best example can be information technology popularly known as IT .
• Communication services : These services include telecommunication services which are provided by the telecom providers like Airtel , Jio , Vodafone etc . Other than this it may include services provided by specialised individuals or an organization such as BPO , customer services etc.
• Transport services : These are the services which are provided for transportation of goods or people from one place to another by transport providers . VRL is one of the best example for transport services .
• Health services : These are the services which are provided for the betterment of the patients by health organizations which include doctors , nurses , compounders etc.
• Educational services : These are the services which are provided by teachers , lecturers etc to help build knowledge among people and children . These services may not come from schools or colleges but also from tutorials , computer classes etc.

• Tourism and travel related services : These are the services which are provided by the travel agencies to provide different kinds of services like booking a flight ticket , train ticket , organizing tours etc .
• Other services not included elsewhere : The services which are not included in any of the above mentioned services constitute this .
CHARACTERISTICS OF SERVICE INDUSTRY :
• Intangibility (BOLD THE SIDE HEADINGS) : As discussed like earlier , service industry provides services unlike the manufacturing industry which manufactures products . In other words , the services cannot be seen , felt , heard before it is bought .
• Inseperability : The service which is been asked for is always inseperable from the consumer or/and from his goods. The consumers will have a lot of expectation about the service and depending upon the service given to the customers , they decide whether to use the same service again or not .
• Non-transferable : Unlike the products you cannot transfer a service which is why it is one of basic characteristic .
• Variability : Products differ from services in a way that the manufactured products have automated processes and quality assurances that gives a consistent standard product. But how good or bad a service is can vary from many factors, like who is the person who provides it, where is it provided, and when is it provided, and also how it is provided. Therefore the more your business relies on humans to provide services (instead of automation), the more prone you are to variability. (3)

• The growth of these industries can help in the economic development of the country.

• Service depends on company to company .
FACTORS AFFECTING SERVICE INDUSTRY
Some of the factors affecting service industries are :
1. Technology : BOLD ALL SIDE HEADINGS Like the manufacturing industries , service industry also uses technology from other countries to improve the quality of the service provided and to attract customers . For eg : schools and colleges adopting smart teaching methods by use of projectors in classrooms which is been acquired by foreign countries .
2. Climate : Service industries related to tourism , hotels etc get maximum customers during a particular season which also is regarded as one of the leading factors influencing the service industries.
3. Customer loyalty : Customer loyalty represents the likelihood that a customer will return, and will recommend the establishment to others. Customer loyalty lies close to a more financial outcome: Returning customers spend more than customers who only visit once.
4. Skilled employees : The factors like employees and skilled employees make the service industry to do better and look better .The quality of that company depends on the service provided by the employees and the cost of hiring these employees is expensive these days.
5.Local competitors : Companies which are already existing in the market is also considered as one of the main factor to influence the service industry i.e as a new service entrant company which has to compete with other.
6. Customer satisfaction : This is the key factor which influences on establishing a strong foundation with the customers if they are satisfied with the service provided by that company or that service company will fall down .
7. Cognitive abilities : Another indicator of better customer satisfaction is an employee’s cognitive ability. Employees with a higher cognitive ability (often measured in IQ) tend to provide better customer service. People with greater cognitive abilities will learn faster, absorb more information and generalize knowledge more effectively.
8. Government :When the government changes, the policies change and these policies for eg : a recent tax policy ,GST has an immense affect in all the streams of business .
Thus , government can also be an important factor influencing service industry .
These are some of the important factors which affect the service industry . Some of the above mentioned factors affect directly and some of them indirectly , however all of the above mentioned factors have adverse effect on the working of service industry . Researchers point to a number of factors that have accounted for the surge in service business start ups over the last few decades. Many of these factors reflect fundamental changes in societal structure and character. As, initial investment can change essentially from one business to another. While some administration organizations, such as accounting, house painting, tyke mind, grass care, housekeeping, and mentoring, would all be able to be propelled with a humble venture by people with unique aptitudes or learning in those zones, other administration organizations require a far more prominent speculation of cash. Lawyers, specialists, and different experts who influence their living by giving their administrations to customers to make substantial in advance consumptions (educational cost), while business visionaries intrigued by propelling administration organizations that require broad interests in offices as well as gear (inns, Laundromats, auto rental offices, nursing care offices, therapeutic workplaces, and so on.) need to make huge in advance uses of their own, though in various services .
MEANING – ALIGNMENT
Every customer has an ideal expectation of the service they want to receive when they go to a restaurant or store. Service quality measures how well a service is delivered, compared to customer expectations. Businesses that meet or exceed expectations are considered to have high service quality. For example , when we go to a fast food restaurant for dinner, where you can reasonably expect to receive your food within ten minutes of ordering. After you get your drink and find a table, your order is called, minutes earlier than you had expected! You would probably consider this to be high service quality. There are five dimensions that customers consider when assessing service quality.
SERVICE QUALITY – DEFINITION
Philip Kotler (1997) defined service as “an action or an activity which can be offered by a party to another party, which is basically intangible and can not affect any ownership. Service may be related to tangible product or intangible service “.(6)
According to Business dictionary service quality is defined as “An assessment of how well a delivered service conforms to the client’s expectations. Service business operators often assess the service quality provided to their customers in order to improve their service, to quickly identify problems, and to better assess client satisfaction.
DETERMINANTS OF SERVICE QUALITY (7)
The determinants of service quality focuses on bringing several factors which directly or indirectly influences service quality to their customers. The recognition of a service company can be done by analysing the service quality given by that company to the customers . Some of the direct determinants of service quality are :tangibility , knowing your customer , access etc . and some of the indirect determinants of service quality are : communication , courtesy , knowledge etc .
In this way , the following determinants affect the quality of a service and help the customers determine how good the service is or how bad the service is .
Access : As per the above definition , service quality needs to be accessed by the consumer voluntarily or non-voluntarily in order to perceive that particular service satisfaction.
Communication : Here, communication is the exchange of information and when the information is communicated between the end users and the service providers . If the communication is properly conveyed the service will be higher than usual.
Competence : With the skilled staff members the service organization’s quality can be purely determined . Here , competence is the ability to do something successfully or efficiently which can be related to the delivering of appropriate service delivery with quality .
Courtesy : Knowledge and courtesy of employees and their ability to convey trust and confidence is also considered to be one of the strong determinant of service quality because it is by the courtesy and knowledge which decides the service quality is successful or not .
Credibility : credibility and conduct emerge as the highest loading first order determinants . It includes the significance of rectifying the errors while keeping customers informed and employing branch staff that are responsive and civilized in their conduct .
Reliability : The information which is provided by the service organization to the end users based on which they have the decision to take the service or reject the service . The customers believe that all the information provided by the organization is true and hence they rely on it . The chain of this reliability forms as one of the determinant of service quality .
Responsiveness : Here , responsiveness can be defined as it is the willingness to help customers and provide prompt service . Not all service provider organizations will help customers and provide prompt service but the one’s which provide will definitely be recognised with their service quality .
Security : It is the liberty from doubts or danger risks. In other words , security as the name suggests it is securing of information to avoid leakage of any confidential information to other competitors .
Tangibility : It includes appearance of :
– physical facilities
– communication materials which can be seen and felt by the customers .
Understanding/knowing the customer: Today , understanding and knowing the customer becomes very important for every service organization because it is how they get a chance to attract customers and to prove it to them how unique they are in their own way .
Service Industries and Economic Performance tends to three inquiries that have troubled financial analysts for over 10 years: regardless of whether benefit situated economies can sustain high rates of yield development; whether they can create vast quantities of good jobs; and whether they can contend adequately in worldwide markets.
However, the proportion of the world economy devoted to services grew steadily during the 20th century. In the United States, for example, the service sector accounted for more than half the gross domestic product (GDP) in 1929, two-thirds in 1978, and more than three-quarters in 1993. In the early 21st century, service industries accounted for more than three-fifths of the global GDP and employed more than one-third of the labour force worldwide. In the same manner , it is projected that India also outstands in front of the world with the consistent improvement in quality and use of advanced technologies .

Today, all hospitals have their own emergency ward in its own division in its own particular area of the ground floor , with its own particular committed passageway. As patients can display whenever and with any protestation, a key piece of the activity of this department is the prioritization of cases in light of clinical need. This procedure is called triage.
Triage is typically the initial stage every patient goes through, and comprises of a concise evaluation, including an arrangement of indispensable signs, and other detailed problems like chest torment, stomach torment, trouble breathing, and so on.. Most hospitals have a specific region for this treatment to happen, and may have staff committed to performing only a triage part. In many divisions, this part is satisfied by a triage nurture, albeit subject to preparing levels in the nation and region, other social insurance experts may play out the triage arranging, including paramedics or doctors.

• The big hospitals are competitive for Deepak Nursing Home in terms of their marketing strategies(there are no effective strategies) .
• There are no other branches of this hospital because of which they lose the new customers
• No proper marketing tools are undertaken to popularize the hospital .
• When there is a situation of communicable diseases passing on each individual there is a room for higher demand than usual days and in such situations limited numbers of beds acts a weakness of the organization where it fails to accommodate or serve higher than its capacity .( This once happened where there was dengue spreading drastically few years back .
• As there are involvement of global doctors the hospital is exposed to the global world in a way that the Indian doctors can take few suggestions as to how to overcome and take preventive steps . They also can be taught the use of modern euipments such as stunts for heart patients etc .
SO HOW CAN IT TAP THIS OPPORTUNITY
• The pharmacy was the latest addition due to which there is prediction in the increase of profit of the company .
• All employees have a freedom of expressing their ideas and have opportunity of getting promoted . for eg : Dr. Govind who is the service department head was initially not any departmental head . As and when he tried to bring the best quality in his service the hospital administration started taking ideas from him and today he is the service department head . HOW DOES THIS HELP WRITE THAT ALSO
• Retaining the potential customers can be their best opportunity to stay in the market despite of its heavy competition .
• As this hospital has a good location where in and around 10kms there are no big hospitals customer demand can be easily created.
• To increase the efficient working of hospital members by adopting to latest technologies . The use of modern equipment like bio-chemistry analyser which is used to measure various components, such as sugar, cholesterol, protein, enzyme, etc and the very recent cataract surgery which is done without using any injection , any stitches and without any patches . WHICH LATEST TECHNOLOGY MENTION
• Shared savings and significant incentive potential for physicians .
• Reduction in cost and improved quality standards can attract more customers.
• Community benefits as a result of better co-ordination of care .
• Ensuring adherence and accountability is very challenging with the qualified staff these days .
• Every competitor comes up with new strategies to sustain in the market while big competitors are there which is a common most challenge which every hospital like Deepak Nursing Home faces .
• Price wars with the competitors .
• Adoption of new policies by government such as tax policy ( GST).By paying proper taxes to the government the hospital is adhering to the rules and regulations , when such rules and regulations are followed the hospital can maintain proper record of the cash inflows and outflows by which fair profit of the hospital can be determined . HOW DOES THIS AFFECT THE HOSPITAL
• The hospital is exposed to many other threats like strikes etc due to the economic changes in the economy .
• High cost of importing latest technologies and also other utility facilities like power , transportation etc.
This analysis is often made to improve the performance of any organization and mainly to know where that organization stands among its competitors . The users of the SWOC analysis need to ask and answer questions that generate meaningful information for each category ( strengths, weaknesses , opportunities and threats ) to make the analysis useful and find their competitive advantage .
It is also found out that when a organization knows its competitors and what are the oppurtunities they have , that is when the organization can grow and expand . Today , almost all the businesses use SWOC analysis to find out where they stand and what they have to improve in the near future .
