Retail Churn with Advanced Analytics

Hitachi Solutions applies advanced analytics and machine learning for predicting retail churn of customers.

Many industries have problems with customers leaving their service. In order to combat churn, we need to understand different demographic groups. Utilizing our approach, retailers are able to delve into the root causes of churn.

Our Advanced Analytics solution allows retailers to simulate marketing campaigns for multiple demographic groups. Key highlights include:

  • Understand the basics of your customer base, including who they are, where they live, and their history.
  • Train a model of customer churn using machine learning techniques to predict the causal conditions.
  • Simulate different marketing campaigns using the trained model and provide dollar figures to the opportunity cost of those campaigns.
  • Prescribe specific campaigns to target different demographic groups in order to minimize churn probabilities.
