iYogi whitepaper identifies the seven steps for creating an Intelligent Customer Service Architecture.

New Delhi, September 19, 2014: At the CII Telecom Convergence Summit held in New Delhi yesterday, iYogi launched a whitepaper titled ‘IoT: The New Customer Opportunity for Telecom Companies’. The whitepaper discusses how telecom companies can deal with market challenges, create new revenue opportunities, and transform customer experiences by investing in an IoT ready support automation platform.

Vishal Dhar, Co-Founder & President Marketing, iYogi, said “As service providers continue to compete for new customers, their key challenge is to reduce losses by retaining existing customers and creating new revenues streams. The rise of the Internet of Things – including the growing percolation of smart devices in the digital home, represents a massive opportunity for telcos.”

“According to Gartner, by 2020, the Internet of Things will include 26 billion units, and will create incremental revenue for product and service suppliers to the tune of USD$300 billion, most of which will be in services. As telecom companies rise to capitalize on this opportunity, they must recognize that IoT will add complexity to their environments, and require an architecture built to enhance the customer service experience. Consumers, government, industrial, and SMB clients need a unified IoT platform for the emerging smart devices in order for them to be used to their full potential,” he added.

As companies embrace an IoT driven world, a customer centric support automation platform will allow telcos to:

  • Create opportunities for the roll-out of entirely new categories of service
  • Increase cross-selling and up-selling
  • Improve customer service and overall experience through big data insights
  • Enhance network management by delivering better visibility into user behavior
