1 Petrleum-Gas University f Pliesti BULLETIN Vl. LXII N. 2/ Ecnmic Sciences Series Develpment f Lng-term Relatinships with Clients in Financial Sectr Cmpanies as a Surce f Cmpetitive Advantage 1 Ivana Dmazet *, Jvan Zubvić *, Mark Jelčnik ** * Institute f Ecnmic Sciences, 12, Zmaj Jvina str., Belgrade, Serbia ** Institute f Agricultural Ecnmics, Vlgina Street 15, Belgrade, Serbia Abstract Relatinship marketing represents the cncept which gives lng term dimensin t cnsumer s rle and imprtance, because it has in its fcus lyalty develpment and lng term cperatin and partnership relatinships with key clients f financial rganizatin. Relatinship marketing is fcused n: lyalty btaining and catching f clients fr a lnger perid, client s value, quality f prvided service, engagement regarding fulfillment f client s expectatins, as well as cncern f all emplyees tward the client. That is why relatinship marketing represents a significant strategic leverage which can imprve cmpanies cmpetitive advantage. Key wrds: relatinship marketing, lng-term strategy f relatinship with custmers, cmpetitive advantage financial rganizatin JEL Classificatin: M31, M39, M21 Intrductin Relatinship marketing is a new cncept which intrduces lng-term dimensin t rles and imprtance f custmers. It fcuses n develpment f lyalty and lng-term relatinship based n cperatin and partnership with key custmers. The cncept was develped during the last decade f the 20 th century, at which time several new definitins f relatinship marketing were intrduced. Grdn defines relatinship marketing as a prcess f creatin f new values fr each single custmer and distributin f gains achieved during interactin 2.

2 2 Ivana Dmazet, Jvan Zubvić, Mark Jelčnik relatinship marketing emphasizes lng-term relatinships between cnsumers and gds/service prviders as well as lng-term prfitability. 3 Relatinship marketing is fcused n identifying and meeting the needs and wants f ur clients. It includes management f detailed infrmatin abut individual custmers and analysis f all "interactin pints" with custmers with a gal f maximizing their lyalty. Interactin pint with buyers represents every situatin when the buyer interacts with brand r service including persnal experience, mass cmmunicatins r randm bservatins. 4 Grönrs uses the term relatinship marketing t prmte the idea that the main gal f the business activity is t build and retain stable and lng-term relatinships with market actrs that cntribute t the success f the cmpany. Grönrs s definitin f relatinship marketing cncept is: t identify, establish, develp and maintain relatinships with custmers and ther stakehlders, while creating prfits, in such a way as t fulfill the bjectives f all parties, thrugh mutual exchange and fulfillment f expectatins and prmises. 5 Financial institutins tend t develp clse relatinships with their stakehlders (emplyees, investrs, sharehlders, etc.) fr tw reasns. First - because cmpanies strengthen their cmpetitive advantage in the market and secnd - the applicatin f this cncept requires creatin and use f databases as very pwerful tls fr achieving business success in the market. Relatinship marketing fcuses n: gaining and retentin f custmer lyalty in the lng run; the custmers value; quality f service, cmmitment t meeting custmer expectatins; and cncern f all emplyees n relatinship with the client. In additin t relatinship marketing, the cncepts based n the develpment f direct relatinships with custmers are: Custmer Relatinship Management - CRM; Database marketing; Marketing with a license; Retentin Marketing; Lyalty Marketing; Interdependent marketing; One-t-One marketing; Frequency marketing; Partnership marketing. Effectiveness and efficiency have becme an indispensable criterin f market ecnmy that caused rganizatins, especially in financial sectr, t direct their marketing activities n develping relatinships with their custmers and n analyzing their needs and wants. T becme successful in the dynamic financial services market, cmpanies must deliver superir service t targeted custmers, which are becming mre demanding ver time. Selectin f prducts/services is a prcess based n ratinal balance f price and quality. Increased cmpetitin and narrw perating space frced financial institutins, primarily banks and insurance cmpanies, t implement strategies and techniques f custmer relatinship management (with their clients) in rder t achieve expectatins f wners and ther stakehlders.

3 Develpment f Lng-term Relatinships with Clients in Financial Sectr Cmpanies as 3 insurance cmpanies had t redefine their gals, business relatinships with majr custmers and stakehlders, as well as a range f marketing activities. T achieve that purpse financial institutins had t: Define their basic gals - prfitable peratins, imprving f business thrugh acquiring new and retaining ld custmers; Fcus n private and business custmers wh create mst f the prfit thrugh a range f direct marketing and mass media cmmunicatins. Fr example, Aegn Insurance, ne f the wrld's largest insurance with 4,500 emplyees, implemented a strategy t attract and make lng-term cmmitment f their cmmercial clients in such a way that they split activities f life and pensin insurance int the individual business sectrs, which imprved the quality f each f them. This led t a significant increase in the number f cncluded lng-term cntracts with crprate custmers t whm, apart frm high quality services and access t facilities f the glbal market, the mst imprtant thing is t be assured that their insurance cmpany will be with them and share the risk in the lng run. 6 In the investment sectr f banking, custmer relatinship management is still in the implementatin phase. This is a great pprtunity fr banks t manage their apprach t custmers, t adapt cverage strategies and t use new technlgies in rder t imprve cmpetitiveness. Custmers in the banks are well infrmed and therefre very selective, thus banks can n lnger believe t have the advantage ver clients because they have mre infrmatin. Custmers wh have gd infrmatin abut market have mre precise needs and requirements and they are nt s lyal t ne brand. Leading clients tend t fcus their business n few strng service prviders wh ffer cmpetitive advantage and benefits in terms f cst in rder t hld their psitin in the market. Investment banking is characterized by tw kinds f relatinships with clients: Relatinship f cmmn way f thinking in which the Bank is directed t carry ut large and significant transactins fr clients; The relatinship f jint prtfli which requires crdinatin f many activities f the bank and custmers. Since the banks are merging and the number f clients is grwing, the scpe f activities has expanded and the cmplexity f relatins with business custmers has increased. Even thugh relatinship marketing is imprtant, it is certainly nt the nly requirement banks have t cmply with in rder t remain cmpetitive n the market. Tw main determinants f the success in the investment banking business are: custmer satisfactin and prduct quality. T make CRM functinal, banks must have a clear picture f what their clients really want frm them. Fur main types f custmers needs are: 7 1. Reduced csts and efficient service; 2. Better cntrl and transparency as a result f respnsibility fr achieving results; 3. Greater cmfrt resulting frm the fact that the cmpany needs t perate with a smaller number f banks; 4. Bank shuld be precisely infrmed abut custmer s needs, s as t ffer the right prduct at the right time and at the right price. 6 H a r w d, T., G a r r y, T., B r d e r i c k, A., Relatinship Marketing Perspectives, Dimensins and Cntexts, McGraw-Hill Educatin, UK, 2008, pg S t n e, M., M a t h i a s, P., CRM in financial services, Kgan Page Publishers, Lndn, 2002, pg. 212.

4 4 Ivana Dmazet, Jvan Zubvić, Mark Jelčnik Clients are increasingly fcusing n strategic selectin f prviders f financial services, based nt nly n pprtunistic and tactical decisins. They expect cntinuus lng-term bank rientatin twards a leading psitin in the market. The ability f banks t achieve glbal presence and prduct quality is crucial in the client's selectin prcess f prviders f financial services. In additin, the bank must prvide a high level f reginal cverage and apprpriate infrastructure fr their branches. When the bank becmes the main prvider f services, it must establish a strategy t retain that psitin and t gradually increase its share in the client's prtfli ver time. The bank may ffer different ptins fr achieving added value fr the entire range f its prducts, in accrdance with the needs f the client. In this way, thrugh develpment and imprvement f relatins with clients, by implementatin f CRM, the bank imprves its relatinships, enhances its image and psitins itself strategically in the client's mind in rder t maximize its share f client s financial prtfli. Successful develpment f CRM includes the fllwing activities: 8 Creatin f new market by selectin f specific market segments and establishment f leading psitin in it thrugh develpment f suitable financial prducts; Imprving the qualitative level f relatins with custmers in the market, by invlving them in the design and develpment f new prducts; Implementatin f mnitring and interplatin f trends in rder t trace changes in the envirnment and practively react t them; Develpment f partnership marketing cncept with custmers, suppliers and ther actrs in the market wh may help cmpany t be mre successful n the market. Relatinship marketing can be intrduced n different levels, three f them being: 9 Tactical level (similarity with the activities f sales prmtin); Strategic level (emphasis n develping partnerships with custmers); Philsphy level (reflecting the essential philsphy f marketing - the entire rganizatin is fcused n delivering ttal satisfactin t custmers, maintaining and develping f business). Relatinship marketing is particularly interweaving with direct marketing, with CRM cncept and marketing lyalty cncept. They may be viewed as independent cncepts, but they als may be a part f relatinship marketing. They differ in relatinship apprach, as ne f the frms f partnership marketing, and traditinal (transactinal) marketing apprach. Relatinship Marketing vs. Transactin Marketing Transactin marketing strategy based n the cncept f traditinal marketing is typical fr situatins in which the custmer ften changes suppliers and purchasing decisin is made n the basis f the cst f prducts/services. Such relatinships are shrt-run because they represent ne-time transactin. Table 1 shws the difference between transactinal and partnership marketing. In traditinal marketing, cnsumers are fcused n a single purchase and achievement f individual gals. Mass advertising and prmtinal campaigns are used fr increase f sales. Marketing manager activities are mainly aimed at creating attractive prducts that emphasize its traits and characteristics, and thus attract the custmers attentin. Their activities are least riented n gd lng-term 8 L i t t l e, E., M a r a n d i, E., Relatinship Marketing Management, Thmsn Learning, Lndn, 2003, pg V e l j k v i ć, S., Marketing usluga, Faculty f Ecnmics, Belgrade, 2006, pg. 185.

Prduct design, varius marketing tricks and sales prmtins are the mst cmmn ways f gaining custmers. Hwever, this type f purchase will nt be repeated and the custmer will be lst frever. Table 1.

(2004), Relatinship marketing, 2 nd editin, Pearsn Educatin, pg. 65. Transactin marketing has n intentin t create lyal custmers, because the sale is made nly nce, and the transactin can be perfrmed frm hme. Hence, transactin marketing is suitable fr sales that d nt require relatinships with current custmers, such as real-estate business sales t ne-time custmer. Such transactins imply the existence f pre-defined cnditins fr sale (standards, quality, etc), s that the primary element f decisin making shuld becme the price. Therefre, transactinal marketing has advantages nly in business transactins that require preexistence f certain cnditins, r when the nature f the prduct is such that sales during the life span are limited due t certain factrs. The fact that there is n transactin cst f relatinship marketing t gain custmers and maintain relatins with them may be seen as an advantage in terms f cst-effectiveness fr the cmpany. If the cmpany n the basis f infrmatin frm custmers database plans t find a balance between applicatin f transactinal marketing and relatinship marketing, it can use the synergy effect that will result in mre revenue than they planned. Such business pprtunities are defined by ad-hc peratins, s there is n pssibility f applying the universal slutin. Managers f the cmpanies that want t implement and apply ptimal slutins in custmers relatinships have prved t be able t use the new technlgy which means that the new IT slutins can be implemented n the basis f existing data if the cmpany fllwed the innvatins t the apprpriate area. Benefits frm Relatinship Marketing The develpment f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers, unlike in traditinal marketing, is a cncept that has fund applicatin in many rganizatins frm varius sectrs f the ecnmy. The

6 6 Ivana Dmazet, Jvan Zubvić, Mark Jelčnik cncept is universal and applicable in almst all types f rganizatins because there is a need in every strategy-riented activity fr the develpment f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers. The main gal f the implementatin f this cncept in prfit-riented cmpanies, like cmpanies frm the financial sectr, is t infrm custmers, t achieve higher satisfactin and lyalty level, and t accmplish better business results. Depending n where the cncept is applied and n the specificity f rganisatin, it is cnceived a different develpment prgram f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers. Hwever, basic cncept ideas and principles shw their effects in these fields as well, with the ultimate gal f higher cnsumers satisfactin and lyalty level. The imprvement f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers is implemented bth in marketing riented B2C (Business t Cnsumer), as well as in business riented B2B (business t business) activities. The cncept may be widely applied in B2B because: There is a smaller number f clients - business partners (cmpared t the number f final individual cnsumers); There is lnger cperatin where partners are directed t each ther by the nature f business; data availability abut financial and ther cperatin indicatrs; There is a need fr easier infrmatin system abut cmpany and its management. The cmpany has t think abut their cnsumers when dealing with ther cmpanies, since it has t be aware f the way in which their prduct/service meets cnsumers needs; t what extent cnsumers are lyal; hw prfitable each custmer is; and wh their custmers really are. That is imprtant because industry demand is derivative, dependant n demand f final users - cnsumers. The leaders in the implementatin f such new business apprach are the financial institutins (banks and insurance cmpanies), the telecmmunicatin sectr, the turist and catering cmpanies and the rganisatins (htels, turist agencies, restaurants, etc.). The advantages f the cncept f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers are as fllws: 10 Imprvement in market philsphy f behavir and wrk; The rle f cnsumers in cmpany business is perceived in a prper way; Data abut cnsumers are cllected systematically and cntinuusly, and then stred in the database; Cnsumer segments are prfiled by data analysis; Causes f cnsumers satisfactin/dissatisfactin are discvered; Critical success factrs are identified; Cntinuus interactin with cnsumers and prperly set cmmunicatin channels enable the cmpany t develp lng-term relatinships; Infrmatin is becming knwledge; Knwledge serves t adjust prducts t the needs f (individual) cnsumer; Knwledge and acquired experience are the basis fr taking varius actins in all business segments (research and develpment f new prducts, prductin, acquisitin, sale, marketing, etc.); Efficient and effective implementatin f the cncept is imprving the satisfactin f internal and external cnsumers; Cnsumers trust, lyalty and familiarity are created; 10 H a r w d, T., G a r r y, T., B r d e r i c k, A., Relatinship Marketing Perspectives, Dimensins and Cntexts, McGraw-Hill Educatin, UK, 2008, pg.122.

7 Develpment f Lng-term Relatinships with Clients in Financial Sectr Cmpanies as 7 Lyal custmers are buying mre, they are less sensitive t price, spreading psitive prpaganda, appreciating the value f cmpany s prducts and the cmpany itself; Lyal custmers f ne cmpany are at the same time lst custmers fr cmpetitrs; Cmpany image and image f its trade marks are increasing; There is significant increase in gained prfit (particularly n lng-term). The develpment f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers is a reality that is accepted by a number f cmpanies, rganizatins and institutins in all develped cuntries. Hwever, it shuld be knwn that relatinship marketing is nt universal slutin fr all prblems which culd appear during the prduct/service life cycle. Building f lng-term relatinships and cnsumers persnalizatin implies the need fr adjusted ffer accrding t the needs f each individual cnsumer, bth n the level f service and cmmunicatin adjustment. General assumptins, which shuld be fulfilled s as t successfully adjust service t custmer, are: Identificatin f cnsumer s characteristic, need, wants and preferences; Knwing nature and specificity that make service apprpriate fr cnsumer; Training f emplyees which are delivering services t react prperly in specific situatins in terms f adjustment t cnsumers demand; Service adjustment has t result int higher custmer satisfactin, and has t carry ut greater additinal value t them. Cnsumer s behaviur, as a scientific discipline, cntributed t imprved prcess f service delivery t cnsumers, increase f satisfactin and lyalty, because the market success f each cmpany begins and ends with custmers and their perceptin f service. Financial rganizatins, as service cmpanies, will have lyal, highly satisfied clients, prprtinal t the extent t which they meet the needs and wishes f their mst valuable cnsumers and accrding t the way they adjust their services. Develpment Strategy f Lng-Term Relatinships with Cnsumers The develpment f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers has t take care f the relatinships with cnsumers management value chain and activities that shuld be rganised fr the develpment f prfitable relatinships. The relatinships with cnsumer s management chain have fur levels: Defining f supply value; Segmentatin, targeting and psitining; Business peratins and delivery system; Measuring and feedback. The develpment f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers and key clients is based n strategy creatin. The majr gal has t be the delivery f quality service which will affect lng-lasting cnsumers satisfactin (general precnditin f full lyalty). Cnsumers lyalty als means increase in prfit, which affects satisfactin and lyalty f emplyees in service cmpanies (satisfactin between cnsumers and emplyees is mutually crrelated). The general assumptins fr successful implementatin f this cncept are: M a r i č i ć, B., Pnašanje ptršača, Publishing center, Faculty f Ecnmics, Belgrade, 2005, pg

8 8 Ivana Dmazet, Jvan Zubvić, Mark Jelčnik Cmpany tp management has t be leadership and visin riented, prfessinal and capable, aware f the imprtance f service marketing and lng-term relatinships develpment; The cmpany must have a prject team created fr the implementatin f the cncept int the cmpany s business practice (fr service cmpanies which have nt implemented it until nw); Design f apprpriate micr and macr rganizatinal structure, accrding t cnsumers rientatin; The cmpany needs apprpriate crprate culture and adequate technical and technlgical qualificatins (in terms f database and infrmatin technlgy develpment); Availability f the sufficient human resurces n different levels, with key traits being cmmunicatin skills; Sufficient financial funds. Develpment phases f lng-term relatinships with cnsumers include: data cllecting, data analysis, establishment and maintaining f lng-term relatinships, as well as tracking, analysis and cntrl f cncept implementatin. Basic elements f lng-term relatinships develpment riginate frm the factrs that are necessary fr gd marketing functinality in service activities, such as: Infrmatin abut the cnsumer (needs, wants, traits, behavir); Market-riented behavir; Achievement f mdern cncepts, which are fcusing n develpment f relatinship with cnsumers; Cmpany s capabilities and need; Understanding the rle and imprtance f all persns included in the prcess f service creatin and delivering; Lng-term rientatin; Unifrmity f the cmpany. Aware f the key factrs, we culd divide the develpment prcess f lng-term relatinships int the fllwing stages: Database creatin; Identificatin and classificatin f cnsumers; Cnsumers recgnitin (persnalizatin); Cnsumers differentiatin accrding t values and needs; Interactin with cnsumers; Custmizatin f service prcess, by appraching each cnsumer thrugh persnal cntact r autmated prcess; Creatin f lyalty prgrams - rewards and added values; Cntinuus cncept imprvement (cntrl, measuring and feedback infrmatin). During cncept implementatin, all risks and pssible errrs shuld be determined and crrected. During cncept implementatin analysis, ne shuld primarily fcus n: 12 Assumptin that the client wants t establish lng-term relatinship; Assumptin that the client is ready fr interactin and jint activities. 12 D m a z e t, I., Z u b v i ć, J., D r a š k v i ć, B., CRM kncept u funkciji unapredjenja direktng marketinga, Management, Vl. 51, 2009, pg

9 Develpment f Lng-term Relatinships with Clients in Financial Sectr Cmpanies as 9 Assumptin that satisfactin is enugh by itself; If clients are transferred int the tp custmers, having awareness that they are valuable fr the cmpany, they will expect mre; Prblem f hurting clients wh are nt tp custmers by prfit, r by cmpany s directed attentin, and they have significant cntributin t cmpany peratins; Changing attitudes tward key clients culd cause cnfusin; Sme awards may be unnecessary (clients culd behave similarly withut them), and they may be expensive; Smetimes custmers establish cperatin nt because they are lyal, but because they d nt have alternative substitutes in the market. Researches cnducted amng different level managers in banking, telecmmunicatin and public service sectr in the USA shw that the largest bstacles during implementatin f lng-term relatinships cncept with cnsumers are: time required fr cncept implementatin, rganizatin culture, financial funds, and many ther initiatives implemented in the cmpany. Lng-term relatinships develpment requires cntinuus interactin between cmpany and cnsumers. The cmpany has t take care f the relatinship. This means that it has t trace all types and places where cnsumers and the cmpany face each ther in the prcess f infrmatin exchange. Fr the develpment f lng-term relatinships, the fllwing aspects f cmmunicatin with cnsumers are particularly imprtant: Persnal cntact (by phne r persnally); Persnalized mail; Internet and . Apart frm these, mass prmtin is very imprtant. The means f mass prmtin are used simultaneusly t attract ptentially new cnsumers, as well as t keep existing cnsumers aware f the cmpany. Hwever there are certain cmmunicatin limits with cnsumers, s the cmpany has t take int accunt the fllwing: 13 D nt start interactin with cnsumers if there is n clear cmmunicatin gal; Cnsumer shuld nt be asked twice abut smething; Cmmunicatin shuld be dne between tw cnsumers purchases; Interactin always starts with questins abut cnsumers (nt abut prducts); Interactin shuld be persnal and custmized t specific cnsumer; It shuld be determined if cnsumer (always) wants interactin; Use f mass adjustment principle and technlgy is preferable in rder t reduce interactin csts and persnalize sent message; Cnsumers privacy shuld be kept; Dialg shuld be initiated by printing f phne number (fr free calling), r by publishing website with all infrmatin abut cmpany (business cards, mem, billbards, etc); Make sure that cnsumer values interactin prperly; Care abut custmer s time (everything abut cnsumer can nt be learned at nce). 13 P e p p e r s, D., R g e r s, M., D r f, B., Interactin generates custmer feedback, PT Mtin Systems Distributr, Sep/Oct 2000 Vl. 14/5, 2005.

10 10 Ivana Dmazet, Jvan Zubvić, Mark Jelčnik Cmmunicatin with cnsumers is imprtant because: Dialgue can prvide infrmatin; Infrmatin is transfrmed int knwledge (knwing cnsumer and his needs); Knwledge is the basis fr adjustment f prducts/services, as well as fr the establishment f lngterm relatinship; Efficient and effective actin leads t cnsumers satisfactin, trust creatin and familiarity; Cnsumers satisfactin and trust lead t lyalty; and Lyalty leads t prfit. Cnclusins Interactin with clients increases cmpany prfitability and cnsumer satisfactin. Cntemprary business envirnment with strng cmpetitin leads financial rganizatins t intrduce ne new, mre effective and efficient apprach t the market, because cmpany success mstly depends n hw effectively it meets all cnsumer s needs which leads t creatin f lyalty and prfit grwth rate. The majrity f financial rganizatins claim that their prducts and services are adjusted t cnsumers needs and requirements, but in practice that is nt usually true due t several reasns: incnsistent applicatin f the marketing cncept, increment f needs and wants f mdern cnsumer and limitatins f classic marketing apprach. Therefre, the client s value must be analyzed and business behavir adjusted accrdingly. An imprtant rle in the prcess is played by the techniques and cncepts f direct marketing, fr example by the management f lng-term relatinships with clients. Management f lngterm relatinships imprves clients lyalty level. Lyal clients use cmpany s prducts and services mre and they are less sensitive t price. They spread psitive prpaganda, appreciating the value f the cmpany s prducts and cmpany itself. Lyal custmers f ne rganizatin are at the same time lst custmers fr cmpetitrs. That leads t increase f market share and imprves cmpetitiveness. It cnsequently leads t significant prfit grwth which is the main gal f each and every cmpany. References 1.
