This How to Build a Profitable Customer Base online training course explores the analysis of what makes a customer profitable and how is that analysis conducted.

Traditional profitability analyses focused on goods and services. However, once the focus shifted from products to customers, profitability analysis also pivoted accordingly. Companies across the globe realized that there was an ideal segment of customers who were less price-sensitive, pressurized the organization less, and contributed to higher profits.

The idea behind customer profitability analysis is to use data analytics to identify these different groups and accordingly make adjustments that will allow less profitable customers to become more profitable, instead of dropping them.

In the first course, you will explore the concepts of customer profitability analysis. You will learn about the relationship between cost and customer service. Specifically, how different types of customers impact the profitability of your organization, based on how much demand they place on the system.

The second course demonstrates the applicability of customer profitability analysis through examples. You will review a case study of a bank that implemented activity-based costing to realize customer profitability. You will learn about the challenges and benefits and reflect on how your organization will receive a similar program.
