Sales and Revenue Transformation Utilizing Historical Customer Order Data & Predictive Analytics

In this session, Vik Mehta, Founder/Managing Pricipal of eMoksha Consulting, discusses how B2B/B2C businesses can apply predictive analytics strategies to historical customer orders to create tremendous value. He also demonstrates how
“actionable data” is more meaningful than “big data” in this context.

The presentation covers:

  • How retailers and e-commerce businesses can achieve revenue growth from historical sales orders
  • Identification of unique customer signals and behaviors hidden in sales orders.
  • Discussion of growth strategies such as customer retention, predicting/preventing customer churn, gaining lost customers and cross-selling/up-selling.
  • Realigning sales teams towards sales quality rather than quantity utilizing customer value scoring.
