Algorithms for Apps

The first step in the creation of algorithms is data mining which was initially used in CRM to determine meaningful relationships between large volumes of transactional, survey, and account information. However, ARW now uses this and other techniques to create algorithms for apps.

Conjoint Analysis

Conjoint tradeoff analysis is excellent for new product development and product modification. Used to determine what features a new or existing product should have, what price should be charged, and what demand can be expected given various tradeoffs.

We can create a simulation tool such that variations of various attributes (i.e., brand, price, features, etc.) yields shares of preference for different product packages.

Dashboard Creations

We are adept at programming and creating custom dashboards. And we make sure to follow the basic tenets of “dashboarding.”

We choose metrics that matter

We keep it visual

Make it interactive

Keep it current

Make it simple to access and use

Data Mining

Profiling is a data mining technique used to find patterns and trends in customer data.

Profiling describes a group of people by summarizing information about them. Profiles are typically used to answer questions like:

What do my customers look like?

Which prospects are most likely to buy?

What drives customer churn?

Multivariate Analysis

Within Multivariate Analysis there are three techniques used: Cluster Analysis, Factor Analysis, Regression Analysis.

Cluster analysis helps to find unique segments of individuals who comprise a company’s target market. It also helps to determine the characteristics of each segment and how each segments’ needs can be met.

Factor analysis helps to get at the fundamental reasons for consumer motivation to purchase a company’s product. By performing this kind of analysis, the data will allow a company to construct its advertising to reach its market in a more direct and rational manner.

Regression analysis is used to determine the scope of the relationship between one variable and others. The nature of the relationship is expressed as a mathematical formula that may be used to predict a result.

Path Analysis

Path analysis is a type of statistical analysis used to evaluate causal pathways by examining the relationships between a dependent variable and two or more independent variables.

The key ingredient in causal modeling is that variables must have a clear time-ordering since one variable cannot be said to cause another unless it precedes it in time.

Perceptual Mapping

Perceptual Mapping is used to determine the factors that discriminate between one product and another and where a company is positioned relative to its competition on each of the factors.

Pricing Analysis

Within Pricing Analysis, there are three techniques used to determine price elasticity and the degree to which a product can tolerate price increases without adversely impacting market share: the Van Westendorp technique, conjoint, and discrete choice analysis.

We employ any and all techniques depending on the problem at hand.

Segmentation Analysis

Our segmentation models are used to segment customers from a needs based and attitudinal point of view for the purposes of:

Acquiring the most profitable customers

Increasing customer satisfaction

Predicting customer churn and lapsation

Predicting customer loyalty lifetime value

Maximizing up-selling and cross-selling opportunities

We also create typing tools to better utilize the outcomes from segmentation analysis. For example, a person’s membership in a particular segment can be determined by 4-6 key questions.
