Accenture also helped Telefónica introduce analytics across all digital channels and call centers to enable a better understanding of the customer throughout the entire digital journey, giving the company the ability to make highly personalized offers and accelerate sales.
"Customers make most of their buying decisions through digital channels, so it was critical that we transform our digital sales capabilities and the overall experience to remain relevant," said Mariano De Beer, chief commercial and digital officer at Telefónica. "A major part of the transformation was to create a digital ecosystem, enabling us to offer a highly personalized experience with the flexibility to respond quickly to changing customer and market demands. Accenture’s deep digital experience, combined with its world-class marketing and design expertise, made them the obvious choice to help us make this journey."
"Telecommunications is an industry where service providers constantly face the risk of losing customers — and, with them, revenue — if they fail to maintain customer relevance," said Nerea Idirin, a managing director in Accenture’s Communications, Media & Technology practice. "Telefónica is a very forward-thinking company and has the courage to continuously innovate, which enables them to maintain their relevance in consumers’ daily digital routines and in turn, their leading position in the market. Our collaboration with Telefónica was designed to help them evolve into a Living Business, enabling them to thrive by continuously adapting to changing customer preferences and market conditions with speed and at scale."
