KXEN Boosts Revenues & Service, Cuts Costs at Rogers Communications

    SAN FRANCISCO, June 12 /CNW/ - KXEN extreme data mining technology is set
to boost revenues and customer service while reducing costs for Canada's
largest mobile operator and cable TV provider, Rogers Communications Inc.

    KXEN's Analytic Framework suite of data mining tools is deployed across
customer knowledge teams at Rogers' wireless and cable businesses as well as
its publishing arm. The result, according to director of campaign management
and customer knowledge Derek Pollitt, is that customers are seeing more
relevant offers from direct marketing campaigns. "This in turn will decrease
costs, increase revenues and improve customer satisfaction," he says.

    To counter growing competition and constant change, Rogers installed KXEN
to ramp up modeling and analysis in the face of industry-wide skill shortages.
KXEN's software was chosen for its ease of use and speed of operation.

    "We selected KXEN because it allows us to create quality propensity
models up to seven times faster than before," says Pollitt. "This not only
means we can look at things in a more granular way, it also frees up our
highly skilled people to focus on other, more interesting opportunities.

    "Customers tend to get inundated with marketing messages from multiple
suppliers every day. To succeed, our messages must be seen, be relevant and
persuasive to the customer, and KXEN is helping us achieve that."
