Uninor, a service provider with 40 million subscribers and 300,000 retail outlets throughout India, knows that determining what customers want and then finding the best way to serve them is the key to growth. To that end, gaining insights into store inventory levels, available touchpoints and the demographics of certain segments allows the company to recognize customers’ specific needs so it can sell them exactly what they want. Uninor can also make sure that current network rates are aligned with the specific customer demographic to better serve each individual customer.
