The broad categories of services that related with the AKMover is possession processing. The
possession processing is customers must physically enter the service system in the service factory

consumer or business market, normally consisting of existing and potential customers, into sub-
groups of consumers known as segments based on some type of shared. Segmentation is dividing

Figure 2.0: Blueprint of AKMover

From the table above, there are five element in blueprint service which are physical evidence,
customer action, onstage contact employee, backstage employee and support process. According to
Lynn Shostack (1984), service blueprint is represent to a functional process chart which shows the
service delivery process from the customer's perception. Other than that, the service blueprint is a
procedure originally used for service design and innovation, but has also found applications in
diagnosing problems with operational efficiency. Apart from that, we also have design service
blueprint for AK Movers Company which is represent the service of that company.

i. Physical Evident
The supports and places that are come upon along the customer’s service journey. It’s a com-
mon misconception that customer-facing physical evidence, but any forms, products, signage,
or physical locations used by or seen by the customer or internal employees can and should
be represented.
The physical evident for AK Movers Company such as website, office, transportation, equip-
ment and other. These kinds of element are the importance element that should include. When
the AK Movers Company have official web page it shows that, the customer can surf or can
find detailed information regarding the service that provide by AK Movers Company. Next,
parking lot shows that when the business provide the parking lots for customer it shows that
the company do not want to make the customer troublesome by searching for the parking at
the far places. Besides, AK Movers Office shows that if customer having problem or they
want get more information regarding packaging and moving service they can straight away
can go to the Company Office. Furthermore, when the company provide the catalogue of
packages and quotation, it will delight customers to make a choice regarding the packages
that suitable and affordable to them. Finally, regarding the employee, transportation and
equipment. These element are very importance because it is a key requirement in the service.
Without such element of the service cannot be run or implemented smoothly. The function of
employee is to packaging the equipment and the function of transportation is to moving the
ii. Customer Action
The steps that customers take as part of the service delivery process. The customer action in
AK Mover service are call and make the appointment which is when the customer are required
for our service they have to call and make the appointment with us. The purpose to make the
appointment because the facilitator usually is not around the office because they are sometime
doing outdoor work. Next, the arrival of customer to AK Movers Office and after that the
customer will meet our facilitator and having some discussion on how to get that service, what
is the price that offer to particular service and other information regarding the service. In
addition, after the customer brief by the facilitator the customer will decide to choose which
packages that suitable to them. After that, the customer will submit the request form to the
counter. So, the employees will do the next process so that the service is received by the
customer as soon as possible. After the customer receive the service the customer will make
full payment to AK Mover by cash of online payment.

iii. Onstage Contact Employee

Front-stage contact is about Visible Contact Employee Actions which is steps taken by contact
employees as part of the face-to-face service encounter. There are three element that employee
require to do which is firstly, the employee have to greet and brief the customer. These things
have to done by the employee so that the customer will satisfy regarding services provided by
workers in AK Mover and the customer also will feel happy to receive the service from that
business. Secondly, the onstage employee will packaging the thing that in the customer house
or office and after that the employee also will moving or transfer the thing into the transport
and after that to the new place that was request by the customer. Thirdly, the onstage employee
will receive the full cash payment from the customer.
iv. Backstage Contact Employee
Back-stage is above Invisible Contact Employee Actions which is the 'line of visibility' sepa-
rates the front-stage and back-stage actions non-visible steps taken by contact employees be-
hind the line of visibility. There are four element in backstage contact employee. Firstly, the
employee must arrange the appointment to customer, so that the brief process become smooth
without any barrier. Secondly, the backstage employee have to provide the information to
customer when the customer came to AK Movers Office and also the employee should make
few copies of AK Movers flyer so that the customer can understand very well regarding the
service and the packages that provided by that company. Other than that, the backstage em-
ployee must prepare the document regarding the request form for the customer. This is be-
cause, when the company doing the jobs or task systematically the process of some work will
going smoothly and perfectly. Next, the employee should prepare the bill for the customer
when the customer made full payment, by doing these thing the company will know whether
the customer has made the payment or not.

v. Support Process
Activities carried out by employees who are not dealings employees, but whose activities are
required for the service to be distributed. There are three element in support process which
make online appointment, choose the package from online and register system. Firstly, make
online appointment which is the customer can make appointment in online if the customer do
not want to make a call to AK Mover Office. The customer might fell like by doing their affair
using online will make them easier compare to usual affair such as make a call which will
include some cost or they feel like they have to wait until someone answer the call. Next, the
customer also can choose the packages that provided by AK Movers by visiting to AK Movers
web page. In that web page, already include the type of packages with the price. So it will
make the customer easier to access the detail information regarding AK Movers service.
Lastly, about register system. When the employee prepare the document regarding confirma-
tion to receive services from our company, we will indirectly register the customer's name in
our system. This is because, to avoid any doubt or misfortune occurring later on.
The Failure Point
The failure point of these business were occur three times. Firstly, the customer will make a
call before made the appointment with the company’s facilitator. The barrier that occur during
this process is the telecommunication line might be not clear during the conversation between
the customer and the employee such as when rainy day the telephone line is not so clear and
call always intermittent. So, this element will be the failure point might happen in these ser-
vice business.

The second failure point is when the AK Movers facilitator are brief the customer, that cus-
tomer might does not like the package that we are offer to them. This is because the price that
company offered may not suitable to them or quite high. In other hand, the customer may not
satisfy with the item that were provide in every single package. May be the customer more
services offered in such a package.

Finally, the failure point was occur when the AK Movers employees are about to send items
to the destination that the customer wants. This is because when delivering goods there are
obstacles in terms of traffic congestion, road accidents, the driver do not know the exact ad-
dress and so on. After that, during packing of items there is possible to item to be broken and
these things will cause the company's reputation to be affected where the company fails to
provide qualified and skilled workers. In addition, when transferring goods into a truck or
somewhere, there may be items falling and broken because employees are not careful to make
the work or worker inadvertent to make a mistake.
AKMovers service environment is to shape customers’ experience and behaviour. This ser-
vice environment is used for customers as a criteria in evaluating services and services cape
which is used by customers as a positioning tool for service organizations. There are three ways
to service environments affects buyer:

i. Message creating Medium: Symbolic cues to communicate the distinctive nature and quality
of the service experience

ii. Attention Creating Medium: Make services cape stand out from competition and attract cus-
tomers from target segments

iii. Effect Creating Medium: Use colours, textures, sounds, scents, and spatial design to enhance
desired service experience.

House Moving Without You (Customers) Doing Anything

All of the process in moving the stuffs and equipment will be handle by the AK Movers staffs.
Customers does not need to pack their properties or stuff because it is all will be done by the
staffs from the start until the end of the processes. All the packaging will be done by AKMov-
ers. Customers can just lend us their key and let us finished it from the start until the end.

Avoided Stuffs and Equipment from Broken

AKMovers offered service environment where customers can avoided the risks of broken
stuffs. This is because AKMovers have a well – trained workers that can finished their jobs
on moving customers’ stuffs properly. AKMovers offered 90% decreased in risk when using
our services because we used the right materials and the talented employees compared to other

Fast Services
AKMovers offered fast services to their customers rather than their competitors. We under-
stand that our customers’ time are very valuable to them and our services help them to save
their time because we can do it faster for them. AKMovers offered only 12 hours to finish the
services and the moving for the customers. This processes usually take about 2 weeks to fin-
ished but AKMovers are really fast services where offered best service environment to cus-
AKMovers provide customers way to communicate their experience to company through two
channel which is online and traditional. These channel are provided by the company to give their
customers space to give feedback or even praise the company performance.

i. Online communication
Through online, the customers can use media social such as Facebook, Twitter and also
Instagram to interact with the company. When the customers communicate their experience
online, these platform allow them to openly say their personal thought with the company,
other customers and also the potential customers. Customers can complaint to the company
through these channel and in return, they expect the issue will be solved immediately. Online
communication also allow the customers to influence the other customers and potential
customers through their positive or negative feedback. This is because everyone can see what
they write regarding the service provide. The company also can see if there are complaint
made by the customers on their media social by always up to date with the social media. If
there are complaint made by the customers, immediate action need to be take in order to
reduce the impact to company performance.

ii. Traditional.
For traditional way, the customers can e-mail, call or visit the company directly to make
complaint. These channel require more cost and time of the customers to complaint but these
are the most effective way to complaint something. Sometime the company does not see what
is being posted on their media social because they don’t have time to check so, if the customers
use these traditional way the company can know the problem straightaway. These allow the
company to take action immediately for the customers. These channel also does not affect the
company reputation because it only involve the customers and the company only, no third
party. This help the company in managing their image to their other customers.
John Tschohl said that “Service recovery builds customer loyalty that brings a customer back
from the brink of defection”. An effective service recovery system can turn a complaint
customers into a loyal customers. Service recovery is the procedure in dealing with customers’
problem or complaint. A good service recovery system can solve the customers’ problem or
complaint immediately and also restoring the customer satisfaction.
