Abstract
 The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of IT service quality on trust, commitment and intention to continuously use the IT service. Service quality in this research is measured in two dimensions (technical and functional) while trust measured in two dimensions (cognitive and affective). An empirical model is proposed here, consisting of technical quality, functional quality, cognitive trust, affective trust, commitment and intention to use. The model was tested using 215 data points collected in a global electronics firm. Study results show that the cognitive and affective dimensions of trust are affected by functional and technical service quality. Interestingly, functional service quality seems to have effects stronger than technical service quality contrary to the expectation that technical quality of outcome would be more important than functional in case of IT services. Also, affective trust seems to maintain stronger effects than cognitive trust in raising the commitment level of IT service client. Further implications and limitations are discussed.
