Real time offer optimization

Closed loop campaign offer optimization powered by SAS analytics

I’ve had the opportunity to deliver the incredible value of campaign offer optimization to more than 40 clients over the last 10 years.

Adding value through the customer lead cycle via predictive analytics and real-time scoring

When I speak with our clients’ Chief Marketing Officers and other leaders of customer relationship strategy, the topic of more effective on-boarding and lead nurturing arises frequently. Specifically, how can they deploy the data-driven approaches they’ve developed for direct marketing in the lead cycle?

The challenge with which they’re grappling represents two key transitions from business as usual:

  • the transition from relating with pools of customers to individual customers
  • the transition from batch, offline outreach, to real-time interaction with those customers.

These leaders need to provide their front-line relationship managers with tailored, responsive and relevant customer treatments, through whichever channel the customer wants to engage.

Our clients often ask us, “how do you recommend we should apply stress testing to our lending portfolio, so that we can determine the sensitivity of risk exposure to various macroeconomic conditions and lending strategies?” Sometimes they are responding to CCAR analyses.
