Based on the analysis of China Telecom after the status of customer relationshipmanagement on how to improve customer loyalty and China Telecom to make a few responses. [Keywords:] China Telecom customer loyalty At present, Chinas telecommunications industry is becoming increasingly fierce competition in thecomplex, individual enterprises to provide the same quality of service are more or less, the customerand the competition for the establishment and cultivation of loyal customers is the focus of competitionand key. To maintain and enhance customer loyalty, which means to enhance the contribution of theenterprise customer, so that the competitors can not compete for this part of the market share, reduceadministrative costs and Marketing expenses, bring huge economic benefits to the enterprise. As Chinasthree major telecom operators with the competitive situation between the escalating price war isintensifying. But in fact, the domestic carriers have already tasted the bitter fruits brought by owninghousehold: further increase in the proportion of low-end customers, adding to customer churn,resulting in a certain degree of operator unrealistically high number of customers. First, China Telecoms customer relationship management status Running through a period of time can be seen, telecommunication enterprises to improve thecustomer service efforts made to obtain a considerable number of large customers agree, and some hadlost major clients, and now re-select the original carrier providers, the current customer returnphenomenon is gradually increased. Overall, Chinas major telecom companies for customer service isobviously on the one level, but there are still some problems. 1. The work of major clients within the enterprise system is incomplete Great customer service should be a system which needs coordination with various departmentswithin the enterprise. Currently, most telecom companies set up a large customer service department,but with the Bureau of the co-ordination with other departments of a number of issues still to beresolved. On the whole, the lack of a sound background support system and can share a bigcustomer information management system, and major client departments lack the necessary powers, itis difficult to mobilize additional resources for large enterprise customers; In addition, the activities andoperations sometimes can not synchronize, such as the business sector and vigorously promote abusiness, and customer service to large customers is not well with the Marketingof the business,sometimes the customers advice to a certain new business, client manager due to inability to get thelatest information can not be response. 2. Marketing strategy Single Major clients in their needs in different quite different, such as banks, securities companies, militaryand political authorities, large industrial and commercial enterprises and a number of foreign-fundedenterprises demand for telecommunications services such as different. At present, thetelecommunications enterprises may be carried out on the large customer segment, but the use of the
  2. 2. corresponding differences in Marketing strategy is far from enough, to meet market demand forproducts developed less active, lack of flexibility; brand positioning is not clear, products and servicesdifferential advantage is not obvious; the lack of customized according to customer demandpersonalized products can not effectively targeted to specific user groups, such as tariff policy, thegeneral tariff policy for large customers than fixed, do not take into account some variables, while thebusiness volume, the use of time, factors such as different customers on the tariffs requirements aredifferent, there is no backing of a flexible tariff policy, it is difficult to provide satisfactory services forcustomers; too much emphasis on the price of market factors, it ignores the overall Marketing andpromotion in the market appeared to be inadequate, the lack of an effective promotional tool could notfind a good entry point to attract users. 3. Service concept obsolete, quality of service to be improved The lack of modern Marketing concepts, the customer more as a telecommunications consumerobjects to the lack of a profound understanding of customer value. Sales to basic business mainly, thelack of high-value of the overall program, while the quality of large customer service staff to beimproved, for large customers with personalized service inadequate capacity, service concepts andmethods have been rivals to meet and even exceed, but not innovative approach , so that customersatisfaction declines, resulting in some users of the service ill and off-grid. 4. Customer relationship management system construction and application level is not high Customer relationship management system is a platform for customer relationship managementapplications and tools, but for China Telecom, the present, from the function of the system to thecompleteness of the application level of the existing system can not meet the need for effectivecustomer relationship management business requirements. Customer data integration and sharingof information, low levels of staff awareness and application of skills in the application of poor, whilethere are some problems with companies such as CRM return on their investment returns exactly howmany? Companies how long to see benefits ? CRM applications to define the scale of what is better?need to invest much money? how widespread the most suitable? What departments are involved? datacollection and input the starting point should be where? from the branch level or from the branch tostart? the above questions is currently become a business need to be resolved. Second, to enhance China Telecoms customer loyalty measures The pursuit of customer satisfaction in order to seek customer loyalty, has become the mostimportant business tasks.
