SAS has helped us save time and effort, drive profitability, and improve customer satisfaction Marwan Jaber CVM, VAS, & Prepaid Segment Manager - Consumer Business Zain Jordan
Zain Jordan, a part of the Zain Group, was founded in 1995, and since then has grown to become the region’s leading mobile telecom operator. The telco has consistently innovated to bring an array of integrated solutions and services to over 3.8 million customers in Jordan alone. Zain’s customer-friendly policies and cutting-edge technology focus have enabled the provision of efficient services to customers, and also helped launch and support various Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility (CER) initiatives to improve lives.
Given the intense global competition amongst Telecommunications service providers, Zain aims to stand out and be consumers’ top choice when deciding between various operators. Customers were looking for value for money and innovative service provider that would take into consideration their individual as well as business needs. Keeping this in mind, there are various marketing campaigns targeting different types of clients based on their needs. Initially, these campaigns were run manually over various channels and platforms. If a campaign needed to be amended or tweaked to keep up with changing customer preferences this would also have to be done manually. That is where SAS came in and helped change how things were done. By way of implementing a Campaign Management System (CMS), Zain utilized technology to alter the existing processes to ensure benefits for all stakeholders and end-users.
Zain needed a way to simplify and speed up transaction-related procedures, as well as automatically target and deliver various agile marketing campaigns. With multiple marketing campaigns for different types of users, it was becoming extremely time-consuming to address each of them individually through manual procedures. These campaigns constantly needed to be tweaked alongside changing consumer and market requirements and conditions. Apart from marketing campaigns, Zain Jordan needed to handle daily complex business procedures for a large volume of customers and transactions. It would often take up too much staff time to complete these arduous processes manually.
In a competitive telecom market, the average revenue per user (ARPU) drops are matched by a spike in customer expectations. Our customer targeting now needs to be scientific, and our marketing outreach needs to be relevant. The SAS campaign management platform enables us to launch quickly, expand the number of targeted campaigns, and integrate across channels. Ultimately, SAS has helped us save time and effort, drive profitability, and improve customer satisfaction Marwan Jaber CVM, VAS, & Prepaid Segment Manager - Consumer Business Zain Jordan
