Cohort Analysis and Forecasting for Telecoms and Media

Cohort Analysis enables better customer retention by tracking customer behaviour and analysing churn. The system designates users/customers into groups (cohorts) with a common link or theme to analyse trends and compare the metrics of different cohorts over time to find the highest or lowest-performing cohorts and ascertain which factors drive the performance. These cohorts usually share collective attributes within a defined timespan. The analysis allows a company to see patterns across the customer lifecycle, rather than grouping all customers without accounting for the phases that customers experience during their lifecycle. By considering these patterns, companies can adapt their strategy to enhance customer experience, increase focus and minimise churn.
