Telco taps SAS® Marketing Automation to speed right offers to right customers at right time
Bintel's mission is to provide best-value telecommunications services by putting the customer at the center of its business. Operating in Africa under the Azur brand, Bintel is a fast-growing provider of a global system for mobile communications services across Africa, where cellular telephony outnumbers the fixed-line network. Bintel chose SAS® Analytics software to improve its effectiveness of marketing campaigns in preventing customer churn. SAS Marketing Automation – from the leader in business analytics – includes a full set of predictive analytics and data mining tools that help the company create, test, modify and manage marketing campaigns.
As a customer-centric company, Bintel is committed to cater to every customer requirement – providing a vastly superior customer experience. Graphical campaign management tools speed up the process of planning and executing targeted campaigns that meet the needs of its growing Azur customer base. As customer satisfaction increases, retention and new customer acquisitions will improve marketing return on investment. SAS Analytics will also allow Azur to streamline the campaign process and reduce mailing costs because marketers will know which customers will respond most positively to different offers and campaigns.
