Robi Axiata Selects Comptel Social Links to Automate Customer Engagement and Optimise Business Performance

Comptel Corporation (NASDAQ OMX Helsinki: CTL1V) today announced that Robi Axiata Limited has chosen Comptel Social Links to help it become the leading mobile operator in Bangladesh. The communications service provider (CSP) will replace its manual marketing campaign management and analytics tools with Comptel’s technology, to automate contextually-relevant interactions, provide a better customer experience and drive business performance improvements.

Leveraging Comptel Social Links, including its Social Network Analysis (SNA) capabilities, Robi will be able to step up its micro-campaigning significantly. The CSP will be able to detect and prevent multi-SIM usage, identify and reduce churn, and predict customers’ future propensity for product upsells. Plus, Comptel’s predictive analytics technology will enable Robi to segment marketing based on customers’ usage, interests, location, and inclination to churn and influence, as well as utilise advanced offer management to upsell products and services.

Key Facts

  • Robi Axiata is a joint venture company between Axiata Group Berhad in Malaysia and NTT DoCoMo Inc. in Japan. It is the fastest growing CSP and third-largest mobile operator in Bangladesh with more than 20 million subscribers. Robi has been a customer of Comptel’s since 2011 when the CSP selected Comptel Fulfillment to replace its postpaid, prepaid and VAS provisioning systems.
  • Comptel Social Links is an advanced predictive analytics product that enables CSPs to analyse their customer data and improve their marketing processes. It allows operators to determine which individual subscribers to engage and the right message and time to target them, for example, to combat churn, offer new services and create new revenue and upsell opportunities.
  • Comptel Social Links, part of Comptel’s Intelligent Customer Interaction suite, is the cornerstone of the company’s Contextual Intelligence for Telco (CIQ4T) concept. This award-winning approach allows operators to better understand the uniqueness of individual subscribers and circumstances, and leverage that knowledge to predict behaviours and transfer it into actions to maximise their business performance.

  • “Customers are at the heart of our business, and catering to their interests has always been a key goal for us,” said Pradeep Shiravastava, Chief Marketing Officer Market Operation, Robi Axiata Limited. “With Comptel Social Links, we’re confident that we can achieve an even higher level of customer satisfaction by amplifying our marketing campaigns with truly comprehensive insights into their behaviours, needs and desires. The benefits Comptel Social Links will bring are boundless, and we’re looking forward to seeing the results.”
  • “With fierce competition at every corner, CSPs must make differentiation a priority in order to stay relevant. One of the key ways to accomplish this is through contextually-relevant, and even better automated, customer interactions,” said Timo Koistinen, senior vice president, Asia Pacific, Comptel. “Comptel Social Links, along with its SNA capabilities, will give Robi the edge it needs to keep customers engaged and realise significant benefits, especially churn prevention, bettering its bottom line.”

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lee Williams, a producer of the first smartphones and tablets, will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. He will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into a retrofit option that reverse-engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace.

Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes.

Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there.
