Predictive analytics


Using Predictive Analytics to Engage and Retain Your Best CustomersIn a tight economy, customer retention is absolutely critical, Analytics-led research shows that it costs six to seven times as much to replace a dissatisfied or unhappy customer as it does to retain a satisfied customer. Yet few companies devote the resources and energy available to retain good customers.Satisfied Customers Using Predictive Analytics to Engage and Retain Your Best Customers Instead, they allow perfectly retainable customers to walk out the door because they fail to pay adequate attention to their needs or preferences. Or companies simply allow their customers to become dissatisfied as they devote greater attention (and capital) to adding new customers.The problem with this kind of logic is that its like allowing water (in this case profits and revenue) to slip through the holes of a leaky bucket. In many cases, customer attrition is preventable and analytics can help plug up these holes.For instance, companies can use predictive analytics to identify the known triggers for customer defection (e.g., reduced transaction volumes, increases in the number of complaints to the contact center) and act on these issues before a customer leaves for a competitor. Simply demonstrating to customers that the company is paying attention to them and wants to make them happier can go a long way toward improving customer satisfaction and customer retention.Another effective way for companies to tackle customer defection and strengthen relationships with their top customers is through the use of customer engagement analytics. These tools can be used to determine how both retail consumers and B2B customers are using a companys products and what their level of engagement is, notes Paul Ressler.Customer engagement analytics can help companies better understand whether certain products or product features are being underutilized and the reasons behind this. Discovering this type of information can help guide executives as to possible weaknesses or perceived problems with products that can be corrected or improved to help boost customers usage and satisfaction.Think Apple. Apple has an incredibly devoted customer base. A big part of the reason for this is that Apples products are relatively simple to use and theyre designed from a customer-experience standpoint.Companies can also use analytics to determine the most effective ways to engage with specific customer groups. Doing so can help decision makers strengthen business outcomes.Bain & Company, which has conducted research on this topic, finds that customers who engage with companies using social media are spending up to 40% more with these companies than other customers.Companies can also use engagement analytics to determine the types of channels groups of customers prefer to use for specific interactions (e.g., interactive voice response for rote support, chat tools to interact with agents to resolve more complex issues) and to identify relevant topics that customers are interested in discussing.
