Speaking on the achievement Sashi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, Idea Cellular Ltd said “Rapid behavioral changes by consumers require focused and personalized marketing solutions. We are extremely proud to announce that Idea has advanced to real time contextual & interactive offer campaigns.

iEOCN is a digital marketing solution to improve marketing effectiveness by delivering contextual offers with end of call notification. The channel assures wide reach and higher response rate as messages appended at the end of post call notifications are delivered to all consumers. iEOCN is designed to help mobile operators automate and manage the end to end marketing workflow right from targeting, sending offers and fulfillment tracking to reporting.
Some of the challenges faced by the operators today are high churn rate and stagnating prepaid revenues as well as recharge counts. Mahindra Comviva’s Interactive End-of-Call Notifications enabled Idea Cellular to reduce customer churn, enhance customer loyalty by executing personalized and interactive campaigns which eventually generated incremental revenue.
With more than 900 million mobile phones, India is the second largest phone user in the world. Midst the aggressive competition, it is imperative for operators to design marketing campaigns which target individual users and address their needs.
