After creating datasets from pre-processing template I improrted these directly into the customer segmentation application and within a few minutes had the results up and running. The prepackaged anaysis was very informative, provided accurate results and great insight into how customers could be split into various characteristics / clusters. This type of analysis would be very useful for more focussed campaign activities.

Business problem addressed by the templates

The Customer Analytics Templates can be used to determine the best offer to present to each customer by analyzing historical purchase data to:

  • Identify customer segments for targeted marketing based on their past purchasing behavior
  • Identify products that are likely to be bought by the same customer
  • Understand customers' propensity to buy products from a different category

When used with historical purchase data that include purchases made during a campaign/promotion period, an analysis can also produce a predictive model to predict a customer's response to a future campaign
