Game-Changing AI Customer Experience Solutions for the Telecom Industry
Over the last decade, the telecom industry has undergone unprecedented changes and has transitioned from traditional approaches centered around call center operational efficiency to data-driven decision-making. Telecom operators and communications service providers (CSPs) possess enormous customer data that can be leveraged to draw insights and enhance personalized AI customer experience (CX). They use techniques such as personalization to develop tailor-made products and interactions for a specific customer group. However, even these techniques are becoming irrelevant amid the rising customer expectations.
Hyper-personalization has become an essential tool in the telecom industry to enhance CX, in turn, improving customer retention. It involves collecting real-time data through all customer touchpoints and processing it through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms to develop a unique profile for each customer at an individual level.
Quantzig has developed an AI customer experience framework for our clients in the telecom industry and uses a data management platform to predict CX in real-time accurately. We empower our clients to deliver hyper-personalized CX through highly tailored customer plans, offers, and deals by leveraging Big Data, AI, and ML technologies.
AI Customer Experience Challenges of the Telecom Client
Quantzig was approached by a global telecommunications company operating in the US to push hyper-personalized customer plans by mining customer engagement in real-time. Our client had designed a mobile app for its users to manage their accounts, access data plans and deals, pay bills, and collect rewards. However, engagement and retention campaigns such as recharge reminders, special offers, and new bill notifications were conducted manually. Owing to its large user base, our client found it challenging to scale hyper-personalized customer experience led marketing campaigns with optimal RoI.
Our client also targeted its users through e-mail marketing and SMS systems, which hindered their persistent efforts to develop an omnichannel strategy. As a result, our client failed to provide hyper-personalized plans and offers through a suitable medium, which led to users uninstalling its app. Our client wanted a mobile marketing solution to enhance the personalized customer experience of its existing clients by generating hyper-personalized customer plans.
It was after attending one of our webinars that the client decided to connect with us.
Quantzig’s AI Customer Experience Strategy
The consultants at Quantzig developed a hyper-personalized CX strategy for our client to analyze contextual data such as the user’s preferred device, the location from where the user accesses the device, the time of day when the user is most active, and the industry with which the user is associated. In addition, we provided persona-based recommendations and customized plans for our client’s existing customers built on various customer attributes, such as service usage patterns, including call durations, data consumption, streaming patterns, and rebate history.
Quantzig’s AI-based recommendation engine used ML, predictive analytics, and Big Data. This tool helped our client gain a better understanding of its customers and thus, enabled it to transition to automated and real-time insight-based action. Our client delivered hyper-personalization at scale across various touchpoints, such as mobile push notifications, in-app announcements, and social messaging platforms.

In the highly competitive telecom industry, understanding the customer’s needs is imperative to retaining them and ensuring business growth.
Broad Perspective on Artificial Intelligence Hyper-Personalization in the Telecom Sector
For telecom marketers, hyper-personalization is a data problem that needs to be addressed with a robust analytics technique. Marketers now use third-party data, including media spending and retail footprint, and integrate them into the data set to picture the customer journey better. In addition, advanced algorithms are being used to identify previously hidden variables and predictors of customer engagement. Such advancements in data analysis techniques will better analyze customer behavior to offer highly accurate real-time insights.
