Optus: Consistent Customer Interactions Across Channels
"To create game-changing customer experiences, we needed to integrate our channels in real time. Not batch driven, not cached-offers, not near real time… But REAL real time. We can use context to make a decision, and get a personalized offer within 200 ms."
- – Gabrielle Shone, Associate Director, Campaign Technology, Optus
The Business Issue
Achieving Customer Relevance, At Scale
Optus is 2nd largest communications provider in Australia, with 10M customers and 8000+ employees.
The marketing team at Optus would typically execute 250+ campaigns a month – each of those going out to millions of customers across multiple channels. The telco needed to achieve speed and performance at scale, to ensure those campaigns were truly relevant for customers. Past problems with timing, cadence, and distributed learning had impacted conversion – customers were often presented with offers they’d already declined in another channel, or products they’d already purchased days before.
After evaluating 22 vendors, Optus selected Pega Marketing for 3 main reasons:
- Pega was the only provider willing to commit to the telco’s aggressive speed and performance requirements
- The Pega Marketing solution could deliver a truly 1-1, contextual experience – in real time, personalized for each individual.
- Pega could provide all the required capabilities within a single, consolidated platform.
