We have implemented SAS’s Customer Retention for Telecommunications, SAS’s Cross-Sell and Up-Sell for Telecommunications, SAS’s Payment Risk for Telecommunications. We have helped implement modules that can help your moderators predict churn propensity or generate the “next best product” from each customer as well as evaluate your current and potential revenue that is at risk. Our consultants are experts in the field and have presented papers on the subject at several SAS Global Forums. The Qualex Telco solution lets you profile customers who have purchased numerous products or upgrades and then assign similar analytics to other customers in order to determine which ones are good candidates for cross-selling and up-selling.

Market basket analysis allows you to predict likely candidates for cross-sell opportunities given purchase history, customer demographics, call behavior and other significant variables. For example, certain customers may go from having a basic fixed-line subscription to adding on multiple fixed lines plus Internet service. Once you identify this behavior pattern, you can use that knowledge to aim marketing campaigns at customers who are most likely to follow the same path. Few industries are as competitive and as rapidly changing as the communication industry. With its award-winning analytics, data integration, and business intelligence, Qualex can help you in the following areas:

Market basket analysis allows you to predict likely candidates for cross-selling opportunities given purchase history, customer demographics, call behavior and other significant variables. For example, certain customers may go from having a basic, fixed-line subscription to adding on multiple fixed lines plus Internet service. Once you identify this behavior pattern, you can use that knowledge to aim marketing campaigns at customers who are most likely to follow the same path.

Customer Profitability

In the telecommunications industry, 80 to 90 percent of your profits come from 20 to 40 percent of your customers. Unfortunately, traditional accounting methods don’t reveal this type of information, and most telecommunications companies allocate indirect expenses to products or service lines using volume-based averages, which simply cannot deliver an accurate picture of what it costs to attract, service, and retain at an individual customer level.

With detailed analysis across different subscriber attributes, Qualex’s solutions will help you not only access the cost of acquiring and retaining your subscribers, but it will also help you to understand the combinations of behavior, cost, and revenue that are actually driving your profitability.
