Salesforce’s Data Cloud is Revolutionizing the
Way B2C Communications Companies Engage With Their Customers
B2C communications companies are evolving rapidly, with consumers demanding more personalized and relevant interactions across all channels. To meet these expectations, B2C telco firms need to have a deep understanding of their customers, their behaviors, preferences, and individual needs. This is where Salesforce’s Data Cloud comes in.
Salesforce’s Data Cloud is a unified data platform that enables businesses to connect and manage all of their customer data from a single platform. This includes first-party data from systems including CRM, marketing automation platforms, e-commerce platforms, BSS/OSS systems, billing, and other sources, as well as third-party data such as official government registers or credit bureaus. With Data Cloud, telcos can create a complete view of every customer, including their demographic information, purchase history, interactions with customer service, and more.
This unified view of the customer allows telcos the ability to deliver more personalized and relevant communications across all channels and stages of their customer journey. For example, a telecommunications provider could use Data Cloud to centralize and harmonize its customer data, and further segment its customers based on their demographics, geographic location, interests, purchase history, and other attributes. This would allow for more targeted marketing campaigns and product recommendations and promotions.
Salesforce’s Data Cloud is also infused with AI and machine learning capabilities. This means that telcos can use Data Cloud to not only centralize customer data, but gain predictive insights based on their customers’ behavior and preferences. This information can then be used to improve the customer experience in a variety of ways, including creating satisfying customer experiences through personalized content.
For example, a wireless service provider could leverage Data Cloud + AI to create a promotional campaign to target customers that have experienced two or more dropped calls per week on average in the last month, and have a high propensity to churn based on other attributes, to offer an updated promotion for an upcoming contract renewal.
With 21% of Communications Companies already using generative AI, and an additional 56% investigating use cases for generative AI, determining a go-forward strategy as it pertains to CRM + Data + AI has never been more important for B2C telco companies.
Here are some specific examples of how businesses in the B2C communications industry can use Salesforce’s Data Cloud + AI to revolutionize their customer interactions:
- Customer Service & Operations – Gain a single view of the customer and manage cases with more automation leveraging Einstein’s predictive AI capabilities.
- Field Service & Predictive Maintenance – Enable proactive repairs and installs with automated processes and connected asset visualization, and additionally empowering technicians for upsell and cross-sell opportunities.
- Billing Inquiry Optimization – Leverage Salesforce’s Einstein’s generative AI capabilities to surface billing insights quickly and easily, delivering contextual recommendations and actions.
- Marketing Campaign Optimization – Telecom providers are using Data Cloud to personalize their marketing campaigns and product recommendations. For example, a telecom provider could use Data Cloud to identify customers who are using a lot of data and offer them a data upgrade plan.
Overall, Salesforce’s Data Cloud, paired with AI capabilities, is a powerful tool that can help businesses in the B2C communications industry to revolutionize their customer interactions. By enabling telcos to connect and manage all of their customer data from a single place and gain insights into their customers’ behavior and preferences, Data Cloud helps businesses to deliver more personalized and relevant communications across all channels.
