This analysis is about identifying which customers you should be investing in. Not only to keep them but to turn them into better customers. Acquiring a new customer is at least five times the cost, on average, of keeping an existing one. Our customer mapping and portfolio analysis is a process that quickly funnels down and identifies which customers you should be focused on. This provides a powerful roadmap for customer relationship management, marketing and business growth strategy.
