Executive Summary
GRAMEENPHONE which is the leading telecommunication services provider in the country with more than 46.04 million subscribers. Grameenphone has been recognized for building a quality network with the widest coverage across the country while offering innovative products and services and committed after sales service.Grameenphone was the first company to introduce GSM technology in Bangladesh. It commercially launches 3G service recently.
GrameenPhone Ltd (GP) is a fast growing mobile telecommunication. Considering the importance of customer satisfaction, this project was designed to assess the satisfaction level of GP’s subscribers. It is generally recognized that, although GrameenPhone is leading the market of mobile telecommunication industry, its customer’s are not fully satisfied with their services. GrameenPhone has some additional features in comparison to its competitors. It is playing a vital role to increase the subscribers of GrameenPhone. Another important thing is that GP users are mostly satisfied with the initial price of GP connections and handsets. Because, before GP’s introduction to the market, mobile phones were totally out of reach to the major part of the current market. Significant dissatisfactions were observed in the factors like quality of air time and network availability, service of helpline, service of info centers, high billing rate, and so on. Customer satisfaction was observed in the areas like initial price, wide network etc. Most importantly, a significant portion of the GP subscribers were found not fully loyal toward the company.
Following those recommendations, GrameenPhone can eliminate the dissatisfactions and thus earn a sustainable distinct competitive advantage to continue their market leadership  GP should earn flexibility to be able to reduce the bill. Currently it should take into account that others are offering lower price packages.
 Capacity of the helpline should be increased in the peak hours.
 The customers should be made aware of the waiting charges they are to pay to be in queue in getting the services from the call center.
 To improve the load on the network, the existing capacity should be improve to fulfill the need of the customers.
 The customers face difficulties in payment of bill on bank holidays. It would be convent for them to introduce payments card.
 The customers are made happy if they receive greetings message on special occasions.
 Network development should be steady; GP should never sell connections in excess to its capacity.
 Capacity of the GrameenPhone Center (GPC) should be increased to reduce the stress of the subscribers.
 Different programs should be taken to educate the subscribers regarding different essential features of mobile phone.

Relationship & evaluation process with the Supervisor:
I found opportunity to identify the dissatisfaction reasons, strong points and improvement areas for business solution products according to the 121hotline service. I asked to give feedbacks to my respective supervisors according to the customer’s quarries and services. The feedback that I gave to my supervisor is presented below:
• High SIM price.
• High call rate.
• Poor customer service in GP centers.
• Employees of 121 and GPC are not well skilled for Business solution products.
• Taking long time to reach the CM in hotline and GPC.
• Poor Follow up.
• Cost for waiting time in hotline and didn’t resolve the problem.
• The Speech Menu in hotline.
• Limited Facilities Compared to other operators.
• General Dissatisfaction with GP.
• Complain hotline is not effective
• VOCM (Voice of Customer Management) dept. is not properly creating GPTTS within 72hrs.
• Customer manager did not maintain proper follow up sales rules and guideline
• High product and service price of EDGE packages and Blackberry services
• Poor network at boarder area e.g. Sylhet, Jessore, Feni.
• SMS based solution is not available for any complain
• Online CM is not available after 12 A.M.
• Roaming bill adjustment problem

 insta.service@grameenphone.com is not properly work aligned with GP-CS
 There is huge stress for a human agent to serve continuous 6hrs (PT) and 9hrs (FT)
 There is huge call pressure so CM does mistake sometimes, when it is complain issue the team leader and VOCM will take care of it but adjustment issue comes later.
 Due to system fault postpaid Bar/Unbar problem is corporate customer call to 121, CM does it manually, it create huge call pressure
 Due to Unplanned (unapproved) leave and sick leave of CM, make 121 huge call pressures.
 Bill and EDGE adjustment verification process is very complex.

Recommendation After all the analysis and the findings about Grameenphone, my recommendations are given below: Network Availability: Sometimes poor network is the vital problem for the subscribers due to some planned works. So it should be solved technically to ensure the users to enjoy full fledge of networks. If GP is having lack of technical equipment or technical hands they should immediately fulfilled the desired necessity. Charge: Grameenphone provides less facility for the subscribers. It should charge the users the least amount as its intention should be in long run, economies of scale.
Hotline: GP should train its customer relation people well enough to solve the problems customers on the hotline. Call waiting time should be minimized. Also number of customer relation employees should be increased in relation to increase in sales.
Availability of Connection: Sometimes users’ dissatisfaction arises due to unavailability of connection facility, because no one usually can get connected at once while there is some planned work or technical up gradation. This problem should be immediately solved to increase customer satisfaction.
Others: - Other problems like unavailability of Pre-Paid cards should be resolved. - GP can add disaster SMS for the customer.
- The company should efficient courier services to reach the bill to the right customer as soon as possible.
- Number of BTS station needs to increase to increase the capacity.
- Credit Control system should be improved

The main focus of the recommendations is to overcome the problems that GP faced in business- I recommend the following action plans for GP to develop further by reducing the problems:
Reduce charge:
• Increase subscribers’ number- GP should increase the subscriber number until market saturation of addressable market. GP should reduce their charge as it has been identified as a major problem. For that we recommend them to further increase their subscriber number especially in the rural areas.
• They can cross the activities of various sub-departments, such as the R&D, Production, Marketing departments, especially in the process of coming up with new product. This will also help them to reduce their cost and will help them to charge less.

Reshape Business model:
The company should be committed to earn revenue by providing the best quality service and spend by establishing developed technology to ensure that best quality services, and by hiring best personnel.
Best cost provider strategy - In the competitive industry, it is not enough to ensure low cost only; ensuring the best quality services is a must. So we are recommending Best- cost strategy, which suggest providing best service at possible least cost. They should give best service in terms of variety of features, customer care, good network etc. On the other hand, they can achieve cost advantage by controlling cost drivers, taking advantages of their huge infrastructure, and knowledge gained from their long-term commitment. These will help them to keep their cost down in spite of retaining high quality.
Deliberate actions: Through holding seminars and competitions among the subscribers of GP, they can reign further by:
• Popularizing VMS
• Introducing MMS
• Providing more customer management center
• Providing ISD services

Updated and Accurate Billing Information: Post-paid customers can check their bills in three ways- IVR (Computer generated voice inform customers their bill when they dial 12111), SMS (Customers can send sms to 2000, writing “Bill” or “Usage”), Customer Care.. Due to wrong and complex procedure of IVR and SMS, Customers often need to rely on Hotline which creates call pressure in 121. Hence, I suggest ensuring the accuracy of billing information and also include time of the bill. For e.g. - IVR will inform customer that your total due amount is XXX taka up to YY: ZZ hour.

Effective Use of Outbound Calling:
Outbound refers to calling customers from helpline for business or communication purpose. Currently GP make outbound calls to those customers whose Internet is not activated. They inform customers regarding the benefit of Internet and then activate P1 on subscriber’s number without any charge. This increase customer satisfaction and use of Internet. But this initiative does not generate much revenue for GP as most of these subscribers are ignorant or not interested in Internet Service. GP can do outbound for those customers who have activated P2/P3/P5/P6/P9 but their package is about to expire (30/15 days). If a customer activates p5/p6/p9 again before expiration, his package will be renewed and the remaining data balance will be added to the data new balance. But if their package expires, their remaining balance also expires. So we can inform them about the benefit of activating p5/p6/p9 within this time. This will increase the frequency of p5/p6/p9 activation and thus generate more revenue for Grameenphone.

Conclusion: After completion of my work tenure as an intern, I feel blessed to have learned so many things in such a short span of time. New learning’s and helpful attitude of colleagues is a thing to be remembered for a long time. I certainly believe this experience of working in GP will help me to be professional in life and also work as an added advantage for the years to come. Getting an opportunity to do internship in the largest telecommunication company of Bangladesh has been a great experience. It was a great honor for me to work in such a professional company where everything is so organized and perfect. The corporate culture that I learned from GP is a thing to be mentioned especially and adapting to it was a big challenge in such an early stage of my career. Textual learning’s form university courses were helpful, but the things learnt from real time work experience for the first time has indeed been a privilege. Dealing with customer queries & complaints has certainly helped my interaction & communication skills. To work in such a big organization was a pressure itself and adapting to this pressure was also a new experience.

Grameen Bank

...Grameen Bank and Microcredit Name Course Course Instructor Institutional Affiliation Date Introduction It is often contended that the monetary sector in low-income nations has failed to serve the impoverished. Considering the formal sector, financial institutions as well as banks generally necessitate significant collateral, have bureaucratic and lengthy application process and have a preference for high loan and high-income clients. For the informal sector, usurers often charge extremely high-interest rates, often permit sexist or racist attitudes to direct their lending decisions and tend to undervalue collateral (Kuhinur & Rokonuzzaman, 2010). Accordingly, the failure of informal and formal financial sectors to offer affordable credit to the deprived is usually perceived as a factor among others that reinforces the social, demographic and economic structures that eventually cause poverty. Consequently, "micro-credit" was developed to address this failure and decades has seen a significant growth in this sector. Microfinance over the years has received several donor endorsement to be the most viable anti-poverty initiative. This is because it targets and reaches the impoverished, especially women, and also small entrepreneurs and producers who more often than not have a limited formal access to traditional banking systems. Micro-credit is, in essence, the dispersion of diminutive collateral-free loans to equally liable groups so as to foster income......

Grameen Bank

...Grameen Bank The Grameen Bank (Bengali: গ্রামীণ বাংক) is a microfinance organization and community development bank started in Bangladesh that makes small loans (known as microcredit or "grameencredit"[4]) to the impoverished without requiring collateral. The word "Grameen" is derived from the word "gram" and means "rural" or "village" in Bangla language . The system of this bank is based on the idea that the poor have skills that are under-utilized. A group-based credit approach is applied which utilizes the peer-pressure within the group to ensure the borrowers follow through and use caution in conducting their financial affairs with strict discipline, ensuring repayment eventually and allowing the borrowers to develop good credit standing. The bank also accepts deposits, provides other services, and runs several development-oriented businesses including fabric, telephone and energy companies. Another distinctive feature of the bank's credit program is that the overwhelming majority (98%) of its borrowers are women. The origin of Grameen Bank can be traced back to 1976 when Professor Muhammad Yunus, a Fulbright scholar at Vanderbilt University and Professor at University of Chittagong, launched a research project to examine the possibility of designing a credit delivery system to provide banking services targeted to the rural poor. In October 1983, the Grameen Bank Project was transformed into an independent bank by government legislation. The organization and its......

He tested this instinct in an experiment in 1976, when he lent about $27 to 42 women in an ordinary Bangladeshi village. Just 30 years later, Grameen Bank has more than 3.2 million borrowers (95 percent of whom are women), 1,178 branches, services in 41,000 villages and assets of more than $3 billion.
