TCS Customer Intelligence & Insights (CI&I) for Communications, designed specifically for the telecommunications industry, helps communication service providers (CSPs) hyper-personalize and improve the customer experience, drive revenue growth and improve operational efficiency.

CI&I for Communications software delivers pre-built use cases for customer analytics, content analytics, network analytics and operational analytics. These modules are packaged with a scalable enterprise insights platform, the CI&I Communications Platform, with unified data management and low-code self-service capabilities that help telecom and OTT service providers deliver timely contextual customer engagement while improving operational efficiency.

Usage Examples

With CI&I for Communications, CSPs can understand and address customers’ needs via customer 360 base analysis, single customer view, dynamic customer segmentation and digital persona plus customer experience analytics. They can improve customer experience with personalized content recommendations.

CI&I for Communications Application Modules

CI&I for Communications comes with four application modules: Customer Analytics, Content Analytics, Network Analytics and Operational Analytics. These modules are core application components that form a singular solution.

The Customer Analytics module provides rich, pre-configured analytics that enable CSPs to understand and improve the efficacy and quality of their customer interactions. Key features include customer experience tracking and Customer 360. Customer 360 provides dashboards, reports and alerts with the ability to drill down to the individual customer. The solution helps CSPs improve targeting and deliver hyper-personalized offers with digital persona discovery and dynamic customer segmentation.

The Content Analytics module provides ‘Top Trending’ and ‘Recommendations for You’ content recommendations to anonymous and logged in customers to increase customer engagement through focused targeting.

The Network Analytics module correlates usage, network and subscriber data into subscriber-level network insights that help CSPs control churn.

The Operational Analytics module supports determining the right mix of products and improvements for overall portfolio profitability by providing insight into product usage patterns, costs, and revenue. It helps analyze product-based revenue earned, cost incurred, and subscription growth / decay over a period of time. The module is divided into three areas of analysis including a list of dashboard reports and pre-built reports in each section.
