Bring summarized product usage, payments, marketing, and customer service data together in one place in near real time. Automating your data pipeline is the first critical step to unlocking the secrets that your data holds. If you’ve been struggling to automate for a while or if you’re still using Excel to run reports, we can get you there fast.
The single view of the customer is the end result of your pipeline automation. It’s the foundation for understanding the interlocking factors that drive recurring payments, up-sells, pricing, and even marketing effectiveness.
With your single customer views in place, we're ready to run state-of-the-art machine learning models for a variety of purposes from pricing optimization to predicting churn. Our machine learning pipeline continually analyzes your data, which allows the models to get smarter...and smarter. Sparked comes with a number of built-in models and we can also build models to suit. Examples include:
- Churn prediction
- Churn "reasons"
- Pricing optimization
- Customer lifetime value
- Survival analysis
- Content valuation
- Non-payer prediction
- Unsupervised clustering
- Revenue forecasting
- Content production efficiency
Know who’s going to leave before they do...and why. Using predictive modeling techniques, Sparked assigns a risk-of-churn score (health score) to each customer and tells you which factors contributed to the score. For example, you'll learn if one marketing channel delivers better customers than another or if the new feature you launched has made an impact on revenue.
Using our much-loved segmentation tool, you'll be able to create meaningful schemas that enable you to offer differentiated pricing, marketing, and product. You can also use the tool simply to explore your customer base. Segmentation schemas that you might pursue include:
Use our customer success tool to evaluate the effectiveness of your success "plays." Are your plays working on a day to day basis? Are they driving customer value and retention in the long-term? You'll know the answers. And you'll meet success objectives like:
- Boosting daily activity
- Improving on-boarding completion
- Discovering and driving your “magic metric”
- Delivering more value to customers
- Reducing churn
Use Sparked to serve the right email, notification, or even product feature to the right customer at the right time. Sparked gives you the feedback loop you need to know if you're serving the next best action.
What tool would be complete without beautiful data visualizations and dashboards that allow you to check into your key stats every day... and to send your success reports off to your boss. Sparked's data visualizations give you what you need.
