Companies in the telco, cable and utility industry, what we call the Communications Vertical, range in size and sophistication, they all share a common theme: they need to say yes more often, safely. In other words saying yes and acquiring new customers, while minimizing financial exposure to risky customers.
Take, for example, a utility in a growing market struggling to handle in-bound requests for establishing gas and electric service. The issue became critical when an enormously successful seasonal marketing campaign drove sales off the charts. Customers quickly began piling up unhappily at the fulfillment bottleneck. The system and process just couldn’t handle the load.
Analysis quickly showed that the legacy process – an overly manual process – was being overwhelmed. Additionally, disparate data sources were not integrated, slowing decision making. And, the company had no mechanism for making timely changes to its policies in response to changing marketing conditions.
