Customer churn is an inevitable challenge that companies face regularly in the widespread telecommunication sector, which is beaming with cutthroat competition.

What is Telecom Churn?

Telecom churn occurs when subscribers or customers discontinue using the services of a telecom provider. The reasons for churn can be manifold such as service quality, pricing, customer service experiences, or even the lure of competitors’ offerings. The impact of churn goes beyond just losing a customer; it encompasses the loss of revenue and the increased marketing costs involved in acquiring new customers. Therefore, reducing churn is not just a customer service goal for telcos, but it is a strategic imperative indeed.

The Consequences of Neglecting Churn Management  

Neglecting churn management can have dire consequences for a telecom company. Not only does it result in lost revenue, but it also leads to reduced market share and higher marketing costs. Moreover, it erodes brand reputation, as dissatisfied customers often share their negative experiences, which further impacts potential customer acquisition.  

The Role of AI in Churn Prediction for Telcos
