Business Challenge

The outbreak of coronavirus is more than just a health hazard, mainly because it has impacted every industry across the globe. The payment card industry is one of the worst-hit segments within the BFSI sector because of various moratorium policies that are in favor of customers. It is expected that such moratorium policies might result in a greater number of defaulters and hence causing a huge loss for the payment card industry.

For renowned payment card industry players with a considerable number of services spread globally, profiling customers into specific groups to design marketing plans can be cumbersome. Facing a similar challenge, the client wanted to gain a deeper understanding of their customer’s preferences and needs to serve them better. By collaborating with Quantzig the client wanted to identify the key differentiators by compartmentalizing their customer base into specific groups. They also wanted to group their existing customers into different categories based on geography, psychography, and behavior. By making clear customer segments they wanted to further reallocate their marketing resources and efforts to maximize the up-selling of their services and enhance the bond they already share with their customer base.
