Summary

Telco Transformation Journey - Digital Brand Leverage, Key Trends and Strategies, a new Global Outlook Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telco digital transformation journey and the emergence of the digital telco brand. It delivers qualitative insights on the digital brand, analysing key trends and strategies adopted by telecom service providers around the world.

Digital channel leverage, for both services and support, is a critical pillar of a telco digitalisation strategy. Telcos have long relied on their online web-shops to help drive digital channel sales, and their e-care app to improve digital self-support volumes, as these tools are instrumental at driving down customer acquisition and support costs. Most telcos have already enhanced their e-care apps with chat-bots, AI voice command, e-SIM support and other digital value-add, to improve the experience of digital self-service, and some have launched ’online only’ secondary brands, to gain a better understanding of the all-digital sales model, with no retail support and limited human hotline support. More recently, a number of telcos have begun to go even further, creating a distinct, greenfield mobile app brand that is capable of managing the entire customer journey digitally, from a single app interface for both new and existing customers.

Its structure is -

  • Section 1: Telcos’ digital transformation journey: this section analyses the main strategies adopted by telecom operators as part of their digital customer transformation evolution, with a special focus on the emergence of digital telco brands.
