In: Customer Intelligence

The proverbial adage in business, ‘customer is a king’ is reinstating itself as the new-age trend. Customer behavior and tastes are currently driving industry changes. Companies that connect with client requirements are 60% more profitable than those that do not.  The significance of customers and understanding segmentation of all related data is so high that it has a direct impact on revenue. A rise in revenue was experienced by 85% of the businesses that actively focused on customer experience (CX).

Customer intelligence (CI) is largely concerned with the analysis of extensive consumer data gathered from both internal and external sources to obtain insights into customer demands, motivations, and actions. CI helps organizations generate dynamic customer profiles and offer excellent CX to each customer by establishing a robust, comprehensive, and intelligent customer analytics ecosystem.

Aspects of Customer Intelligence

CI data can be generated both internally and externally. Corporate databases and call center systems, for example, are excellent internal sources of CI, whereas personal demographics are excellent external sources.

The Process

The first step in CI is to collect customer information from various channels. This might be one of the two CI-generating sources. Mapping data from all areas of customer data—transactional, behavioral, and psychographic—can eventually assist businesses in guiding their marketing and branding decisions.

After gathering data, the next step is to categorize it for better analytics and insights. It not only aids in data analysis but also in client grouping or segmentation to add to their marketing efforts.

CI helps with customer lifetime value (CLV) forecasting and predictive analysis. Apart from providing a comprehensible analysis for relevant stakeholders, the actionable insights and trends from CI can further be utilized in several ways.

1.Improve customer communications

Deploying customer intelligence data in optimal segmentation strategies and campaign planning can help organizations understand customers better. This can help businesses better understand their clients, allowing them to improve interactions and provide more tailored customer experiences. A solid CI solution gives practical advice for relationship management. Organizations may develop connection and brand loyalty by individually acknowledging and rewarding each customer at all touchpoints of consumption using extensive data on consumer behavior.

2.Design tailor-made cross-channel communications

Cross-channel communications may be made more effective by gaining crucial information regarding client habits, such as what they need, where they are in the purchase process, and how their particular channel experience was. When made available in real time, these insights give organizations a complete picture of their clients, greatly enhancing conversion rates and customer retention.

3.Integrating CI and customer relationship management (CRM)

CI’s real-time comprehensive insights can be integrated with CRM to enable companies to manage their interactions with current and prospective customers. This can facilitate the delivery of more timely, relevant, and tailored marketing that can significantly improve the consumer experience (CX). By combining the capacities of the two, preemptive measures may be made to interact with clients at-risk through suitable and, preferably, individualized marketing campaigns. This will greatly assist firms in lowering customer churn.

4.Boost sales and marketing tactics

Real-time access to meaningful, data-driven insights may greatly increase the effectiveness of marketing initiatives. Businesses may use CI to anticipate the success of campaigns and modify their cross-channel marketing plans to guide cross-sell and upsell strategies.  Businesses may increase the quality of their customer service programs by better knowing their consumers. This enhances not just sales efficiency and effectiveness, but also marketing ROI transparency.

To summarize,  understanding the what, where, and how of consumer data is made possible through consumer intelligence. It moves client insights toward being translated into useful information. Businesses may use real-time data-driven insights to guide choices thanks to CI’s comprehensive analysis of client data. To optimize their chances for success, businesses must thus integrate CI into their daily operations. At Knometrix, we help businesses with right CI solutions.
