CX in the Telecommunications Industry

Software Platforms, Applications, and Services: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

  • Share

The telecommunications industry has long struggled with providing excellent CX. A combination of factors—complex offerings and service tiers, a mindset of prioritizing average revenue per user (ARPU) growth, and a lack of understanding and empathy toward customers—have led to less-than-favorable CX scores over the past decade.

However, some industry players have realized that the key to reducing customer churn and driving revenue is best achieved by improving their existing customers’ experiences with the service. By adopting a customer-centric approach to marketing, sales, and service, and anticipating the needs of customers before they become issues or problems, customers are more likely to retain their services, spend more when it meets their needs, and, in some cases, even become evangelists for the company. While CX improvements are largely driven by organizational change management, software is increasingly being used to support these initiatives by managing and making available the plethora of customer data that nearly all providers have at the ready, given the digital nature of today’s telecommunications operators.

This Dash Research report examines the current and future market issues, market drivers and barriers, and case studies within the telecommunications CX/customer engagement (CE) industry with a focus on CE.

The forecasts include segmentations by world region, functional area, product offering, and visibility to the customer.
