Description

The Internet gives the consumer almost unlimited choice in products. At the same time, it causes a globalization of consumer habits and tastes.

Reviews and Testimonials

Kardaras (Athens U. of Economics and Business, Greece) and Karakostas (City U., London, UK) review the techniques and technologies currently available for customizing services delivered over the Web and explore several approaches to service customization by visual composition and discovery. The authors propose a methodology for integrating business strategies with service characteristics, organizational process design, and IT solutions, and address the hard and soft aspects of service customization by drawing on cognitive and fuzzy logic theories. Two case studies apply the methods to the patient admittance process at Athens Hospital and personal bank loan approval.
