MEETING CUSTOMER'S NEED USING CUSTOMER INFORMATION SYSTEM

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1Background of the study

Laudon and Laudon (2002) define as Information System is a set of interrelated components that collect/retrieve, process, store and distribute information to support decision-making and control in an organization. Information system also refers to a collection of multiple pieces of equipment involved in the dissemination of information that may include hardware, software, computer system connections and information, information system users, and the system‟s housing. According to Lucey (1997) Management Information System (MIS) is a planned system of collecting, storing and disseminating data in the form of information needed to carry out the functions of management. Academically, the term of MIS is commonly used to refer to the group of information management methods tied to the automation or support of human decision making. Consequently Information System provides information that organizations require to manage themselves efficiently and effectively because MIS is a key to planning, controlling and decision making for management through transaction processing of systems for the data.

Information System denotes an expanded information system that is achieved through systems design of an improved capability by functionally more information systems, or by incorporating a portion of the functional elements of one information system into another (Rao et al., 2007). Therefore IMIS help managers and workers to analyze problems and visualize complex subjects because it contains information about significant people, places and things within the organization or in the environment surrounding it was a resource like any other commodities.

Customer satisfaction also comes with enormous benefits to the business industry in general and to Social Security and National Business Trust in particular. Proper institution of customer service processes will enable the organization gain customer loyalty and respond to customer needs and feedback quickly and collaboratively. It will also provide clear visibility into enabling management identify which customers are dissatisfied and why, what actions have been or need to be taken and what appropriate responses have to be delivered. Furthermore it will facilitate concrete and actionable suggestions for improving performance, either overall or by segments. The bonding relationships between customers and organizations are hinged on trust which is aimed at achieving overall positive outcomes, and thus higher levels of trust and commitment in turn are attached with higher customer retention level, and this brings about increased organizational performance (Botha & Van Rensburg, 2010; Read, 2009).
