Is your organization making the most of the wealth of customer data?
With Customer Intelligence (CI), you can gain a more complete understanding of your customers, predict their needs, and deliver personalized services at the right time and via the right channel. Through CI, organizations can enhance their services, build stronger relationships, optimize marketing initiatives, and identify new opportunities and trends in the market.
However, without well-defined BI framework and data architecture, using these insights can lead to misaligned sales, customer churn, and lost revenue. By Leveraging Customer Intelligence strategically organizations can gather actionable insights to support their business growth.
Customer Intelligence is a process that uses customer data and business analytics to gain insights into consumer behavior and needs. These insights enable organizations to create a 360-degree view of their customer base and understand consumer’s decision-making processes, purchasing behavior, and preferences to continuously optimize customer experience.
This data comes from various sources like CRM, financial systems, social media platforms, and customer service platforms and can include a variety of data like demographic information, buying patterns, feedback and survey data. In addition, it includes information about customer interactions with the company such as customer service, website visits and search history. In addition, Organizations can easily track relevant behavioral characteristics like purchase frequency, average order value, churn rate, Net Promotor Score (NPS), or product affinity by analyzing this data. This enables business decision makers to identify what their consumers value the most in their products or services and identify new opportunities to meet their emerging needs.
This involves utilizing the complete advantage of analytics to hyper-personalize products and services. Accomplishing this requires a simplified, governed, unified view of customer data across disparate sources.
The goal is to retain or convert the customers and prospects, adding value to the varying conversations and touchpoints the customer already has with the company, all while utilizing analytics to target consumers intelligently.
Each department in the organization has its customer view based on the data it collects—for example, the marketing department knows which products the customer buys from the website. The finance department knows how much money the customer spent last month. And the customer success department knows how many orders have been refunded. To store all this data, organizations have often invested in specific functional systems operating in siloes across the organization.
The challenge for the organization arises when they need to connect their data from all disparate sources to provide robust, high-quality insights available to nurture consumers at each touchpoint. This requires breaking down data siloes to develop an integrated view of the data.
Moreover, traditional methods like spreadsheets or essential BI tools must catch up in today’s complex customer data landscape. Spreadsheets are prone to errors and need more scalability to handle vast data volumes. BI tools, however, often require dependency on technical teams which limit accessibility and create data siloes.
To overcome this, a robust BI architecture is needed to ensure that quality data can be accessed from different sources regardless of location. This architecture provides:
Successful organizations are those who constantly push the boundaries of their data architecture and take iterative improvements to extract greater value from their customer data. It is achieved by focusing on six main areas of data management:
