Reducing customer churn and assuring network quality cost-effectively are some of the major challenges facing mobile operators in the Middle East.  But what are the best ways to achieve this?

I’m Ghassan El-Housseini, Regional Director Middle East at Actix.  At Middle East Com, I’ll highlight the critical role that geo intelligence can play in focusing network strategies and operations to keep your customers happy and get the most out of your network.

In my Masterclass on 4th December, I’ll explain why geo intelligence holds the key to delivering high quality customer experience, identifying and leveraging your areas of competitive advantage, making accurate and cost-effective decisions on network planning and rollouts and also focusing and managing vendor and outsourcing relationships.

Today, with such tremendous pressure on CAPEX and OPEX operators have to be judicious about where to target additional network coverage and capacity and where to rollout LTE. 

Customer experience issues must also be addressed quickly and, in a sector where the customer is king, operators need to move their focus away from managing the network in isolation to keeping the customer happy through high quality performance.

In such a competitive landscape, it’s also critical that operators leverage every ounce of network advantage they possess in order to attract and retain subscribers. 

Geo intelligence offers a powerful approach for mobile operators.



Join my masterclass on 4th December to learn how mobile operators can reduce churn by assuring high quality customer experience; confidently select the most appropriate technologies to boost network coverage and capacity; prioritize LTE rollouts for best ROI; and reduce risk through a transparent and systematic vendor governance process.
