Purpose – This paper aims to identify the generic service quality dimensions of technology-based banking and to examine the effect of these dimensions on customer satisfaction and customer loyalty.
Design/methodology/approach – The generic service quality dimensions are identified using an exploratory factor analysis (EFA). Next the reliability and validity of the factors and customer satisfaction and customer loyalty are established through confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) using AMOS 16.0 s/w. The related hypotheses were tested using structural equation modeling using AMOS 16.0.
Findings – The paper identifies four generic service quality dimensions in the technology-based banking services – customer service, technology security and information quality, technology convenience, and technology usage easiness and reliability. It was found that customer service and technology usage easiness and reliability have positive and significant impact on customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. It was also found that technology convenience and customer satisfaction have significant and positive impact on customer loyalty.
Practical implications – These dimensions of service quality should be viewed as the levers of improving perceived service quality with respect to technology-based banking in the minds of its current customers. Examining the service quality dimensions' impact on customer satisfaction and customer loyalty for technology-based banking can offer banks valuable insights regarding which aspects of the service to focus on in order to improve customer satisfaction and loyalty towards the firms.
Originality/value – This paper introduces the concept of generic service quality and its significance for customer satisfaction and loyalty in case of technology-based banking wherein technology is used to deliver services.
