Data Analytics

Collecting data

A scalable and flexible cloud-based service that collects, processes and analyses data from all customer data sources at the individual level. Our Rapid Analytics solution delivers a level of granularity and insight currently out of reach for most organisations and its low-cost entry point enables minimal time-to-value. It combines the most accurate digital customer behavioural data from the Celebrus Customer Data Platform with Microsoft’s industry-leading cloud platform, Azure.

D4t4 in action

Customer experience analytics and visualisation for a leading Japanese automotive manufacturer

Business challenge:

With multiple touchpoints for customer interaction, our client needed to consolidate its disparate customer data sources to give them a complete picture of experience, engagement and satisfaction for both pre- and post-sales contact. A solution was required to mine text from five different central customer data sources, including social media, surveys and call centre, along with technical, network support and customer relations data from the dealer side of the business. It was also a requirement that the data be presented in a dashboard reporting format that made it accessible to business users across the organisation.

Our solution:

D4t4 Solutions used analytics and integration skills to blend the data into a model that could be mined for customer insight, sentiment analysis and experience metrics. Our visualisation of this data enables non-technical users to drill down into the data to identify concerns emerging from customers and internal technical teams, highlighting these for action before they become serious issues. The solution is now being expanded with the addition of Celebrus data to provide even more granular data.

The solution has been implemented at the manufacturer’s UK headquarters as well as across its 200+ strong dealer network. It has become a critical tool for measuring customer sentiment, enabling our client to introduce improvements that positively impact the customer experience.
