Customer Journey Management
Customer journey management tracks, analyses and optimises behavioral trends and technology to ensure an enhanced customer experience. The objective of customer journey management is to streamline the customer experience.
inQuba utilises diverse data sets of transactional and perceptual data, advanced analytics, as well as machine learning. The data is used to gain insight into the customer’s experience, journeys, and behavior.
Keet van Zyl, partner, and co-founder of Knife Capital, comments on the success of inQuba.
“In the new digital economy we’re seeing businesses come under mounting pressure to increase customer acquisition and retention but the tools and know-how to do this are often scattered across the organisation. inQuba has been so successful around the world because they can rapidly pull together, analyse, and act on large volumes of disparate data. We’re backing experienced founders with proven execution capabilities in Renzon and Rossini, both Endeavor Entrepreneurs – the high-impact global entrepreneur network. This investment allows inQuba to continuously remain ahead of the curve in delivering the customer experience and orchestration technology of the future.”
The company focuses on financial services, insurance, telecommunications, eCommerce, and Retail Industries. The company has clients in Africa, the USA, and Asia-Pacific.
Catherine Townshend, a member of RMB’s Growth Capital Solutions team explains that inQuba’s expertise in Customer journey management is valued as world-class by Gartner, a global research firm, and the American market research company Forrester.
“Used effectively it helps grow revenue by guiding customers towards their goals delivering an intelligent customer experience – even anticipating what they might want next. 2020 has massively raised people’s expectations of the ease of dealing with a business as companies move to digitise. inQuba can greatly benefit and build on its impressive track record.”
