Business challenge story
Solving big business challenges

High competition among telecom companies amid aggressive pricing of fast data has been widespread in the telecom industry and it continues to remain intense as the larger operators are contesting to acquire subscribers of the exiting telecom companies.

A leading telecom company , Hutchison3, faced challenge while trying to identify customers with high risk of churning out of operator’s network or data/ voice services.Telco also wanted Suggestions around corrective actions to retain these high risk customers.

Transformation story
Harnessing the power of analytics

Telecom is one of the largest industries in the world, hence the value created by augmenting AI and machine learning to this artery of connectivity is also stupendous.This was particularly realised when Algo8 collaborated with Hutchison3 to understand the challenge and the direct impact it would have on business and revenue.

Algo8 incorporated various data sources such as CRM, billing, plans, CDR, XDR and Support along with engineering more than 1200 features to capture all characteristics for creating a 360° view of each customer .

Machine learning algorithms such as Support Vector machine(SVM) and XGBoost were used to create an ensemble model. This model was used to predict the churn rate. Survival Analysis was done to tentatively tell the time before churn.

In order to Highlight data consumption patterns of customers, feature creation was done through Bigdata setup and cluster computing. These features were based upon Recency, frequency, volume, type of website/app, type of content, time of day, location, plan, device etc.
