  • Can the call centre contribute to innovation? A multiple case study in
           service companies
    • Authors: Roberto Marx, Luis Henrique Rigato Vasconcellos, Felipe Ferreira De Lara
      Pages: 251 - 267
      Abstract: The objective of this paper is to gain an insight into the contributions of call centre services to all innovation processes. To this end, a number of case studies were conducted and revealed that the companies adopt different call centre models based on distinct strategies. Some companies choose not to use a call centre in their innovation process, despite the fact that it could represent a channel for interaction with users while serving as a source of ideas for innovation. Our findings reveal that the strategy of not incorporating a call centre in the innovation process is strongly tied to the belief that it represents a cost centre. On the other hand, in some cases, the call centre plays a major role within the company's innovation process. The paper concludes with a proposal for an alternative call centre model oriented to take the best advantage for innovation efforts.

  • Outsourcing practices of Midwest US public universities
    • Authors: Dana M. Johnson, Gregory A. Graman
      Pages: 268 - 297
      Abstract: Universities face increased pressures to reduce and contain costs while simultaneously offering high-quality, non-core value-added services to their students, faculty and staff. The purpose of the study was to empirically assess whether and how various dimensions of the outsourcing process for non-core operations in higher education impact performance. Our findings suggest that there is wide disparity in the level of sophistication of outsourcing processes for non-core operations and their impact on performance measurement. The study revealed that organisational variables have an impact and direct relationship to operational revenue and cost. This study focused on Midwest US public universities in seven states.

  • The explanatory power of appraised brand values on stock prices in the
           financial services sector
    • Authors: Dana M. Johnson, Gregory A. Graman
      Pages: 298 - 311
      Abstract: This study investigates the relation between per share brand values and stock prices in the financial services industry. Two regression models are developed and tested on a sample of 51 company years, using the brand values published by Millward Brown for the period 2008-2012 as independent variables - and as both contemporaneous and future stock prices as dependent variables. The test results indicate that the appraised brand value per share is closely associated with both the current and the future stock prices, with explanatory powers of 70% and 67% respectively. The contribution of this research to current literature lies in its special focus on financial services companies, as no earlier studies have been found which have carried out a similar examination in this particular industry. The results provide useful information for managers by showing clearly the positive financial effects of efficient brand management.

  • How does the community structure affect the customer satisfaction?
    • Authors: Suat Secgin, Gokhan Dalkilic
      Pages: 312 - 323
      Abstract: Since 1970s a lot of research and studies has been done on the customer behaviour to achieve customer satisfaction and loyalty. The brand perception, service and product quality and after sales services are the main parameters that influences the customer satisfaction. The main part of the researches account for these topics. On the other hand in this study, the answer of how the demographic structure of the society affects the customer satisfaction will be investigated. To do this, a fixed line telephone operator's customer satisfaction scores for 81 cities in Turkey and the research results of the habitability of Turkey will be used. The investigation will be done on seven separate topics about the cities such as habitableness, economic development, educational status, health development, cultural-art level, security and city life. While examining the relations, Spearman's rank correlation coefficient method is used. At the end of the study, it has been seen that some demographic issues could affect the customer behaviour and satisfaction level although the channel structure, service quality, price, etc., remain the same.

  • A structural equation model for measuring the JIT intensity and its impact
           on manufacturing flexibility
    • Authors: Mohamed A. Youssef, Eyad M. Youssef, Jaideep G. Motwani
      Pages: 324 - 356
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of the intensity level of just-in-time practices, on the flexibility dimension of the manufacturing competitive priorities. The paper simply postulates that there is a strong positive association between the intensity level of JIT practices and manufacturing flexibility. The analyses in this paper are based on empirical data collected from more than 212 manufacturing firms in three industrial sectors in the USA. Our findings confirm our hypothesis and further show that firms with higher JIT intensity levels: a) introduce products and production processes more often than their competitors; b) their products have a wider range of product features and verities; c) they are aggressive in their research and development (R&D) efforts. These finding are congruent with prior research on manufacturing flexibility and strategy and have implications for academics and practitioners. The implications are discussed in detail in the concluding segment of this paper.

  • A qualitative study of factors affecting the synchronous flow of materials
           and their impact on the bottom line
    • Authors: Rameshwar Dubey, Padmanabha Aital
      Pages: 357 - 374
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to ascertain the antecedents of synchronous manufacturing and conceptualise a contextual model for the same. There are umpteen factors that play vital roles in synchronising the entire production facility to effectively reduce operational expenses while efficiently meeting customer requirements. The prime focus of this paper is to study the interrelations among these antecedents using interpretive structural modelling (ISM) and thus find out their contributions in ensuring an efficient synchronous system. We conducted detailed literature review of both synchronous manufacturing and its antecedents and applications of ISM technique in various related fields to define scope of the paper and further extend the works of the past researchers. Our use of ISM modelling in synchronous manufacturing, in establishing complex relationship among antecedents of synchronous manufacturing is a key contribution. The results show that out of the various factors, market demand and ERP play a significant role in the efficient utilisation of synchronous manufacturing.
