The client was not achieving expected returns from their marketing investments using traditional segmentation strategies and although they had access to a vast amount of data, identifying critical parameters for classifying customers for targeted marketing strategies was challenging.
After analyzing the data, research analysts at Quantzig were able to assess the client’s existing strategies to identify gaps and propose an improved scheme for better customer segmentation.
