Learn more about Evolution Platform for Customer Engagement & Loyalty

At Evolving Systems, our powerful combination of people, process and platform enables CSPs to engage, connect and build closer relationships with customers on an emotional level. We work with CSPs to design, implement and run advanced loyalty and rewards programs that drive a multitude of key performance indicators:

In today’s highly competitive markets, telecommunications operators can no longer differentiate effectively using product and price strategies alone. Consumers crave personalization, relevance and demonstrable value for money in return for their continued choice to subscribe to a particular CSP network.

It is now easier than ever before to switch from one operator to another. Regulators have ensured that consumers are empowered to port in and out almost seamlessly, and consumers are being targeted and influenced through increasingly effective digital marketing to choose from a variety of options; from incumbents to new start-up telecommunications companies to content service providers. CSPs need to place greater emphasis on creating and managing the experiences of acquired customers, ensuring they are not susceptible to change and have more reasons to remain loyal.

“CSPs need to re-evaluate their customer engagement strategy to personalize customer experience and meet the evolving needs of their customer base.”

MAKING LOYALTY PROFITABLE

Loyalty and Rewards programs do not always need to be viewed simply as loss leaders to prevent churn. We can help you to design and implement the right program concept for your business, based around a variety of business models, that ensure a rapid return on investment by generating tangible revenue.

Your primary goal may be, for example, to build a program that drives higher spend and tenure on your own core and value added services; or, alternatively, it may be to stimulate digital brand engagement and downloads of your self-care app; in either of these cases and more, Evolving Systems can help you achieve this in a profitable manner by efficiently sourcing and allocating the costs of the prize catalog in an optimized manner.

Conversely, if your requirement is to open up new revenue streams, we will help you to put in place the necessary data, processes and partnerships to enable monetization of customer engagement in the program via business models such as subscription, paid advertising or coalition funded business models.
