Selected case studies
Some of our latest thinking
► Do you think of your customer base as an asset?
In 2005, we asked the leading mobile company to list their biggest assets. We challenged the answer and encouraged them to think about their customer base as an asset. Considering how much money they spent acquiring, retaining, and growing their customers easily puts the existing customers in the top-5 assets by value, which is true for most organizations.
For 70% of companies, ‘Big Data’ fail to generate returns above the cost of capital. This is bad, doubly so because the data is from the telecommunications industry which started exploiting big data early and where the scope for exploiting data is perhaps greater (and surely more obvious) than in most other established sectors. Indeed, by 2014 leading telcos were reporting fully 20% of their profits came from big data, clearly demonstrating the opportunities for getting it right. Let’s examine this in more detail.
Many organizations worry
Do we have enough data to gain insights and take meaningful commercial action? The short answer is ‘yes’. The long answer is ‘almost certainly yes’. In this case study, a Nordic giant in the automotive import and servicing business was facing a real crisis in their service centres where low utilisation was driving them to be unprofitable. They were initially sceptical that they would have enough quality data to gain practical insights, but at the end of this project they were astounded by the depths of insights and commercial actions delivered from the analysis, not just to reduce churn but across the business, their customers, markets, and competitors.
