What is Microsoft Customer Insights?

Dynamics Customer Insights is an innovative and flexible customer data platform that enables your company to generate a coherent and comprehensive profile for your customers.

Consumers nowadays have high expectations when it comes to customer service and customer experience and demonstrate this in their purchasing habits. Customer-centered companies meet these requirements and place the target group at the focus of their commercial practice. After all, to win over these demanding customers, you have to understand their needs, build trust in your brand, increase customer retention, and engage them across all channels with seamless and highly individualized processes.

Businesses face challenges

  • Customer data is stored in a variety of different places.
  • Lack of in-house expertise and time resources for customer analytics.

Microsoft Customer Insight plays an important role in sorting your data into standardized customer profiles and use these to advise the strategy.

The customer data platform collates customer data from a wide range of different sources and generates a 360⁰ view in real-time in the form of profiles.

This innovative technology – based on artificial intelligence – allows you to generate digital customer datasets based on a variety of different data sources (e.g. CRM systems). The information generated by the system’s intelligent predictive analytics tools helps you to make informed company decisions fast and steer your company in the optimum direction.

The diagram below shows this entire process from data aggregation, collation, and standardization in profiles right through to a clear depiction of insights and the generation of future measures. This allows you to offer potential customers the perfect range and impress with tailored products and services and seamless interaction.

Customer Insights merges all forms of customer data (behavior data, transaction data as well as demographic data) from data silos. After this consolidated data collection, AI is used to generate attributes and individual KPIs and derive extensive qualitative contact and company profiles with valuable information on the basis of these. Standardized profiles will help you get to know your existing and potential customers better and achieve personalized and more effective communication across all customer touchpoints in the customer journey, boosting your success on the market and optimizing measures in marketing, sales, and service.
