Propensity and Best-Next-Action Modeling





Propensity and Best-Next-Action Modeling

More companies have started investing more time and money on predictive analytics in order to understand their customers’ behaviors in new ways. By analyzing cross-referenced customer profiles and purchase histories, these companies can predict the likelihood, or propensity, of future activity at a customer-specific level and then proceed with best next actions as necessary. For instance, anticipating future purchases enables a company to recommend (Cross-Sell /Upsell ) suitable products to customers.

Anticipating customer loss to competitors (i.e., churn), on the other hand, enables a company to intervene in hopes of increasing retention rates. All these profiles, purchase histories, best-next-action recommendations, and resolutions require large and potentially cumbersome transactional databases, so extracting valuable information requires the right toolset.
