Description

    BACKGROUND
  • 1. Technical Field
  • The embodiments herein generally relate to customer relationship management tools, and, more particularly to the use of data and patterns in user navigation and interaction for customer relationship management.
  • 2. Description of the Related Art
  • CRM (Customer Relationship Management) analytics encompasses all strategies, tools and programming that analyzes data about an enterprise's customers and presents it so that better and quicker business decisions can be made. It involves using technology to organize, automate, and synchronize business processes including sales related activities, marketing, customer service, and technical support. Customer service capabilities include web self-service, knowledge management, email response management, web chat, collaborative browsing and virtual assistants. Sales analytics let companies monitor and understand customer actions and preferences, through sales forecasting, data quality management, and dashboards that graphically display key performance indicators (KPIs).
  • Customer service analytics are increasing in popularity as companies demand greater visibility into the performance of call centers and other support channels, in order to correct problems before they affect customer satisfaction levels. Support-focused applications typically include dashboards similar to those for sales, plus capabilities to measure and analyze response times, service quality, agent performance, and the frequency of various customer issues. CRM analytics can provide customer segmentation groupings (for example, at its simplest, dividing customers into those most and least likely to repurchase a product); profitability analysis (which customers lead to the most profit over time); personalization (the ability to market to individual customers based on the data collected about them); event monitoring (for example, when a customer reaches a certain dollar volume of purchases); what-if scenarios (how likely is a customer or customer category that bought one product to buy a similar one); and predictive modeling (for example, comparing various product development plans in terms of likely future success given the customer knowledge base).
  • Customer data collection for analysis is the key aspect to determining the above mentioned parameters. Customer data can be gathered from various sources such as product review websites, the company's own website, and various user forums on different websites. However, this data is largely scattered and it is difficult to extract meaningful insights from this scattered data. A common approach to gather customer data is by the formation of focus groups, in which a group of people are asked about their attitude towards a product or service. However, the sample sizes are limited and may not be reflective of the entire customer base. Other methods for gather customer data tend to be more intrusive and invasive, and there is a possibility of compromising on the privacy and anonymity of users.
  • SUMMARY
  • In view of the foregoing, an embodiment herein provides a a computer implemented method of analyzing and generating actionable reports based on activity of users on a product portal using a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application. The product portal includes multimedia files demonstrating features of a product that are stored in a database of an application server. The users have a profile on the product portal that includes a plurality of community buttons.
  • The method includes processing at one or more inputs from a plurality of users based on one or more activity of the users on the features of the product, generating an analysis based on the one or more activity of the plurality of users, and generating the actionable reports based on the analysis. The selection of the community buttons indicates one or more of a user response to one or more of the product portal, or the features of the product. The buttons are present on a plurality interfaces on the product portal. The activity includes any of a problem level, a problem nature, a disfunctioning, a new use, a new feature of the product, a behavior of the users on the product portal, and on the features of the product, or a geography associated with the users. The method further includes communicating the actionable reports to one or more Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
  • In another aspect, a CRM application system to analyze and generate actionable reports based on activity of users on a product portal is provided. The product portal includes multimedia files demonstrating features of a product that are stored in a database of an application server. The users have a profile on the product portal. The product portal includes a plurality of community buttons.
