Predictors of Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty in the Mobile Communication Industry in Ho Municipality, Ghana | Chapter 09 | Emerging Issues in Science and Technology Vol. 1

Aims: The objective of this research was to find out whether subscribers are satisfied with services of the mobile network providers and identify the predictors of customer satisfaction and loyalty in the mobile communication industry and to develop model that links these satisfaction factors and loyalty for any customer in the industry.

Study Design:
Descriptive cross-sectional study design.

Place and Duration of Study:
Ho Municipality in Volta Region, Ghana, between July 2016 and September 2016.

Methodology:
We included sampled subscribers of the five mobile network operators (MTN, Vodafone, Tigo, Airtel and Glo) in the Ho Municipality. A total of 500 subscribers of the five mobile networks in the Municipality were selected for the research. The study employed a purposive sampling technique in selecting the subscribers located in various parts of the Ho Municipality in Volta Region, Ghana.

Results:
Logistic regression analysis was used to identify the predictors of customer satisfaction and loyalty. Results show that quite a significant proportion of respondents were satisfied with the services provided by the network providers in Ho Municipality. Furthermore, the study revealed that five (5) factors; “X1 (Perceived service quality)”, “X3 (Wide network coverage)”, “X4 (Network quality or Signal strength)”, “X8 (Availability of high-speed internet service)” and “X12 (Perceived price fairness or Call/SMS Rate)” were significant to the prediction of customer satisfaction and loyalty with a predicted satisfaction and loyalty rate of 80.15%.

Conclusion:
Mobile network providers should place a focus on delivering the best possible service quality as well as use advanced techniques to improve network quality and increase the network coverage to all areas in order to achieve better customer satisfaction and loyalty. Management of network providers should improve the service quality and make their services more economical so that customers can afford and have better value for money in using the service.

Consensus Summit: Lipids and Cardiovascular Health in the Nigerian Population | Chapter 09 | Current Trends in Food Science Vol. 1

Aims: To issue a consensus statement on Lipids and Cardiovascular Health and the impact of their interrelationship in Nigerian Population. Study Design: Experts from a range of relevant disciplines, deliberated on different aspects of Lipids and Cardiovascular Health in the Nigerian Population at a Summit. Place and Duration of Study: The Summit was held in April 2016 at the Nigerian Institute of Medical Research. Methodology: Presentations were made on central themes after which expert participants split into four different groups to consider the questions relevant to different sub themes of the title. Consensus was arrived at, from presentations of groups at plenary. Conclusion: With the increase in the prevalence of NCDs, especially Cardiovascular Disease in Nigeria, and the documented evidence of deleterious effects of lipids, the expert panel called for an urgent need to advocate for the general public and health professionals to make heart-friendly

A Review on Gongronema latifolium, an Extremely Useful Plant with Great Prospects | Chapter 11 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 3

Gongronema latifolium is a plant that has a wide range of nutritional and ethnomedical uses in different tropical African communities. Scientific reports on the chemical composition and bioactivity (anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antidiabetic, antioxidant, anticancer and allelopathic properties) of the plant material by different authors are discussed in this review. Future prospects of the plant extracts in the areas of herbal formulations, food preservation, alcoholic fermentation and beer production, drug discovery and allelopathy are also highlighted.

An Overview of Ultrasonic Technology and Its Applications in Food Processing, Preservation and Quality Control | Chapter 03 | Current Research in Science and Technology Vol. 3

Ultrasound is one of the emerging technologies that were developed to minimize processing, maximize quality and ensure the safety of food products. In recent years, ultrasound technology has been used as an alternative processing option to conventional thermal approaches. Although Ultrasonication methods have been used for years in research and diagnostics, major advances have been made in the last decade. The applications for which high power ultrasound can be used range from existing processes that are enhanced by the retrofitting of high power ultrasonic technology, to the development of processes up to now not possible with conventional energy sources. The present paper reviews the generation, principle mechanism, properties, process parameters, applications, merits and demerits and future trends of the ultrasound technology in the food processing.
