Technology allows us to gather vast amounts of data, which can provide useful information about customers and how they use financial services, their pain points, and what they find useful. At the same time, new tools enable more powerful analysis. In this webinar, which draws on CGAP’s Customer Analytics Toolkit, we will explore various sources of customer data, learn how to use transactional data to build customer insights both for diagnosing current problems and recognizing future opportunities.

The webinar offers you the opportunity to think about the customer analytics journey in your organization and identify key customer-related questions that can be answered with an analytical approach. The webinar will also explore privacy as a pillar of a customer-centric approach to analysis.
