The banking industry in India adopted CRM as a business process and tried to redefine the customer satisfaction-retention-loyalty sequence in the light of inertia and switching costs, where inertia has been considered as a potent habit of consumption and brand association while switching costs has been conceptualized as a barrier to defect which allowed the banks to assort and customize products/services for the customers.

Review of literature confirmed that although studies were carried out to identify the impact of inertia and switching costs on customer satisfaction and customer retention, there has been a dearth of research focusing on the moderating effects of relationship inertia and perceived switching costs on automated service quality-customer satisfaction-customer retention link in the context of banking industry.
