Barriers such as large numbers of registry users with few registry staff, limited registry space and intermittent internet access associated with the electronic registry system affect registry service provision at ERA registry.

It was recommended that customer service provision at ERA registry should go beyond satisfaction. Strategies that exceed registry users’ expectations should be put in place to delight the ERA registry user.
