Subject: Submission of internship report
Dear Mr. Sohel,
I, being advised to prepare the internship report on the level of customer satisfaction of Berger Color Bank customers for the successful completion of my Internship. As was advised, I have successfully completed my report on “Customers satisfaction level analysis of Berger Color Bank users”

It gives me immense pleasure to tell you that working on this internship report has given me a wide range of exposure. To prepare this report, I have faced extensive one to one interviews with professionals, customers and dealer. It has taught me the value of patience, and has given me a higher insight on the level of communication in the practical world.

This report basically gives an overview of the level of customer satisfaction of the Color Bank users and how different influencing parties can hamper the level of customer satisfaction. I also had to make recommendation as to how the existing level of satisfaction could be improved. As this was an actual company project, research was done on an extensive basis.

It will be a great honor for me if you require me to explain any sort of queries. Yours Sincerely,
Mr. Md. Assad Kibria

I would also like to thank Mr. Tanvir Ahmad, Assistant Marketing Manager, Berger Paints Bangladesh Ltd., for giving me time in his busy schedule, for providing me information that was needed to complete the report, and to properly guide me throughout my internship period.

This study investigates the level of customer satisfaction of Color Bank users, and what are the different influencing parties (architects, developers, painters and dealers). On assessing the level of customer satisfaction, what marketing tools, like promotional efforts and other marketing efforts, are necessary to improve the customer satisfaction level will be given as recommendation by the researcher.
