The Effects and Influence of Service Quality (SERVQUAL) on Customer Satisfaction. A study of Internet Banking – Shanghai Banks, China (2018)

Customer satisfaction plays a fundamental role in achieving customer loyalty and profitability for organisations notably within the banking industry as it determines the level of loyalty and trust that customers have with their bank. Banking services need to ensure that they provide services that give customers maximum satisfaction to their customers by enhancing their service quality. This dissertation investigates and analyses the influence of service quality (SERVQUAL) by internet banking providers and how if effects customer satisfaction levels. The rationale for selecting internet banking is primarily due to the uptake and popularity of internet banking. To analyse this topic, this research focuses on three dimensions of internet banking service quality, which include reliability, security/privacy and website design. To achieve the set objectives, data was collected from five randomly selected banks within Shanghai.

These banks included Bank of Communications, Bank of China, Bank of Shanghai, HSBC Bank, and Hua Xia Bank. From each of these banks, 30 participants were selected randomly creating a sample size of 150 participants. Data was collected using questionnaires, which were administered at different branches of the selected banks. Data was analysed using content analysis. The results showed that the dimensions of reliability, security/privacy, and website design have a strong influence on the satisfaction of internet banking customers. Among the three dimensions, security /privacy of internet banking was identified as having a stronger influence on customer satisfaction compared to reliability and website design.
