We strive for Customer Satisfaction!!!

Customer Satisfaction is a standard set for any business to improve its quality along with productivity. It is because of the understanding of the Customer Satisfaction concept that businesses today are able to supply quality products. In a survey of nearly 200 senior marketing managers, 71 percent responded that they found a customer satisfaction metric very useful in managing and monitoring their businesses.

customer

       Let us learn the few reasons:

  1. 1.    It is an important indicator of customer’s repurchase.
    Customer satisfaction is the only useful indicator of how likely a customer will make a purchase in the future. Asking customers to rate their satisfaction on a scale of 1-10 is a good way to see if they will become repeat customers or even advocates. If he’s satisfied with the product, he’s sure to make the purchase in the future. For example, if he happens to rate above 7, then definitely he is a long term customer. Customers rating you below 6 are a warning that you need to work on so and so appropriate field.
  2. 2.    Makes you stand out of the rest.
    In a competitive marketplace where businesses compete for customers; customer satisfaction is seen as a key differentiator. Businesses who succeed in these types of cut-throat environments are the ones that make customer satisfaction a key element of their business strategy.
  3. 3.    It helps you calculate Customer Lifetime Value.
    Satisfaction plays an inevitable role in how much revenue a customer can generates for your business. Successful businesses understand the importance of customer lifetime value (CLV).
  4. 4.    No badmouth about the company.
    McKinsey found that an unhappy customer tells between 9-15 people about their experience. In fact, 13% of unhappy customers tell over 20 people about their experience. It will definitely affect your business’s prestige. Customer satisfaction is closely linked to revenue and repeat purchases.

    1. 5.    It is good to hold onto customers than to acquire new ones.
      It costs more to acquire new customers than to retain the current ones. You and your marketing team spend thousands of bucks getting the attention of prospects, nurturing them into leads and closing them into sales. Hence it is advisable to hold onto current and loyal customers.

An Insight of Iphone 6 and 6+

An Insight of Iphone 6 and 6+

The ever favourite brand known for its revolutionary gadgets, Apple Inc. recently put an end to the suspense over its flagship smartphone. The Iphone6 and Iphone6+, both were unveiled to the curious eyes of onlookers with a few other gadgets. The phone as expected packs a punch, both in the field of design and technology. Apple’s foray into building larger and wider screen smartphones just makes it an irresistible device to own, which is evident from the 4 million plus pre-orders it has received within a week of its unveiling.

Firstly, to discuss, the performance of the phone is what everybody prefers to know first. Apple has stayed with its inseparable brilliant performance that comes with its device. The newly launched smartphones feature the A8 processor, which is claimed to be 30% smaller in size, whereas the boost in graphics and CPU performance has gone up by 50% and 20% respectively. Now that means, you get more charm from your usage without any additional weight over its predecessors. Moreover, Apple is offering bigger screen size, i.e., 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches respectively and that’s a reason for many gamers to cherish.

Nothing can go well these days without flaunting a selfie. The Iphone6 and Iphone6+, both have surprisingly maintained the same 8 megapixel camera that was seen on the 5S. However, the newly added features to them, namely-Focus Pixels and True Tone flash are expected to add to the quality of the pictures and videos you shoot. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera has received a new capability in the form of a new sensor with an f2.2 aperture that lets in 81% more light. Now this will satisfy many photo frenzy users.

With all the good performance and camera usage, the next attention goes to the battery life it can sustain. Well, there is a clear surge in this property between the two smartphones. Hopefully, it also requires shelling some extra cash.

Finally, about the various options available with its memory will decide how much you can store as these phones have a legacy of not using memory cards. This is a major differentiator as it largely decides the cost of the phone as well. The iPhone 6 will have 16 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB variants for $199, $299, and $399 respectively. On the other hand, iPhone 6+ will be available in the same storage capacities for $299, $399, and $499, respectively.

Note: The prices are totally dependent on our personal research,they may vary.

The World with GPS

world with gps

It’s the world with GPS. You may think that we have a fleet of more than thirty satellites hovering around in the space with nothing better to do but to help us find our way to the most favorite restaurant or a grocery store. Definitely this is not the only use we make of our GPS system. Due to its free global availability and accuracy of timing and positioning, that all combined with lost cost of receiver chipsets has evolved GPS navigation the go to solution in more than one civilian applications.

Recently we have seen GPS receivers coming up in mostly all the new higher end mobile phones coming up and we often use this facility to locate our ways around the city or may be find some place of use, but this all this facility could be made use of.

Let’s just look in to the account that apart from sophisticated military applications, what other ways we could use this facility.

  • Prevention of theft: Due to the low cost of the receiver chip set, it could be installed on the precious goods, like expensive paintings, jewelry box, vehicles. And even if some unfortunate day you get robbed, there are fair chances that your material could be traced with the help of a GPS system
  • Safety of women and elderly: some areas as we know have proved to be unsafe for women, if she has a GPS tracking device in her purse, it could prove to be a life saver in adverse conditions, and not only that but it could be a life saver for elderly as well, due to it emergency call ability and location tracking our elderly could gain attention if they happen to fall out somewhere due to ill health and be helped quickly.
  • For Hiking and Camping: often Hikers and campers venture around in unchartered areas where they often don’t even receive mobile phone signals, there, with the help of GPS, they can not only find new place and mark them for further recreation but they can also be recovered if they happen to get lost somewhere in the middle of nowhere.

These are just few of the areas covered, though we have come a long way with GPS, literally, but there are many horizons still which need to be covered and explored. Scientists around the world are working on making the use of this application on altogether on a different realm. However, as if now, we may carelessly wander around and could have a cup of coffee anywhere we feel like, without fearing of getting lost, as far as we have a GPS receiver blinking!

Dwindling Supercomputing

All of us know the frustration of landing up a call to a customer service center and dealing with an automated interface. They work well enough, but it takes some effort.  After repeating yourself a few times, you find yourself wishing that you can just punch your answers in or talk to someone at the other end of the line that is at least not an android with a heavy accent.

Therein lays the next great hot potato of computing.  While we used to wait for our desktop computers to process our commands and then lingered for what seemed like an eternity for web pages to load, we now struggle with natural language interfaces that just can’t quite work like we’d like them to.

Welcome to the next phase of computing. Companies ranging from IBM to Google to Microsoft are racing to combine natural language processing with huge data systems in the cloud that we can access from anywhere. These systems will know us better than our best friends and debtors, but will also be connected to the entire Web of Things as well as the collective sum of all spick and span of human knowledge.

 

As we sail through the times the computer are becoming more and more human driven, when they first appeared, they occupied the whole room and on this very day we can find teenagers playing with them sitting right around the corner in of the room with a tiny hand held device. Now, computers themselves are disappearing.  They’re embedded invisibly into the Web of Things, into no-touch interfaces and into our daily lives.

That’s why technology companies are becoming increasingly consumer driven, investing in things like native content to get us onboard their platform, from which we will sign onto massively online services to entertain and educate ourselves.

The future of technology is, ironically, all too human!

 

Bone Dry! Android threats.

As we reckon on the usage of our mobile devices, these days we use them in all possible ways, save the most vulnerable data, access personal as well as commercial applications and in some way or the other quite often do banking on the same. But do we really think that all that systems are without blemish? Well we all are a little leery about this one perhaps!

bone dryYou expect your apps and personal data to still be in your Android after an operating system upgrade, but the updating mechanism that allows that has a new class of privilege escalation vulnerabilities, which security researchers warn “pose serious threats to billions of Android users” who update their systems. Basically flaws in Android’s program logic to install updates could allow a bad app to gain godlike permission to take control of your Android device, from hijacking your Google account, sending text messages, accessing voicemail, formatting removable storage, to stealing your passwords for a banking site. When talking about the flaws that affect all the android devices worldwide, the researchers used words like dangerous, dire and devastating.

While OS upgrades often close security holes, a team of explained  that vulnerabilities in the Android Package Management Service (PMS) will allow a “seemingly harmless malicious app” to “automatically acquire significant capabilities without users’ consent once they upgrade” to a newer version of Android.” They call the vulnerabilities Pileup flaws, for privilege escalation through updating, and identified six such flaws in Android OS code

“A distinctive feature of the threat is that the attack is not aimed at a vulnerability in the current system,” wrote the researchers. “Instead, it exploits the flaws in the updating mechanism of the ‘future’ OS, which the current system will be upgraded to.” Successfully exploiting these logic flaws when you upgrade to a newer OS could have “devastating consequences.”

This bring us to a vague understanding that no matter how overwhelming, over board and guarded the virtual world around may look, but inside this capsule we are not completely protected and bone dry from the moisture of threats!
