Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

Service organisations are making increasing use of alternative service delivery channels such as the Internet and call centres. At the same time, developed countries are facing rapidly changing demographic trends with an increasing number of grey citizens who grew up in an age of face to face contact with service suppliers. This paper reports on a programme of UK based qualitative research looking at the grey market's perceptions of the call centre delivery channel. The paper discusses the difficulties faced by the grey market in using the call centres and suggests that more research on the area is urgently required if service organisations are going to address the issues raised and effectively satisfy the needs of this growing market segment.
