MORRISTOWN, NJ -- Nov. 11, 2013 -- In today’s experience-driven market, seamless and sustainable customer experience is vital. Customer experience management (CEM) and analytics play an increasingly important role in reducing churn and revenue retention and growing revenue by offering new services based on customer analytics. TM Forum’s CEM InFocus 2013 addresses the challenges service providers in Asia and beyond face in creating more relevant customer experiences, from building an effective end-to-end customer experience strategy and embracing customer centricity, to exploiting digital channels.
The two-day conference, held at the Prince Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Dec. 3-4, spotlights exclusive C-Level keynote presentations from Axis Telekom Indonesia, Malaysia Airlines, StarHub and Telekom Malaysia Berhad.
In addition, CEM InFocus features over 25 industry speakers and experts from leading communications companies in Asia Pacific such as Axiata Group Berhad, EITC (DU), Huawei, PCCW, PT Indosat Tbk, PT Telekomunikasi Selular (Telkomsel), Mobilink, wi-tribe Telecoms Philippines, among others.
The event’s engaging agenda includes 25 sessions with real-world case-studies, first-hand experiences and thought leadership on one of the most important industry topics today:
• Transitioning to customer engagement management

“For most operators, it’s a challenge to collect and store customer data, and an even bigger challenge to sift through and correlate customer data and data from other sources, including other networks or clouds,” said Steve Cotton, director of business assurance programs, TM Forum, who is speaking at the event. “The payoff though is two-fold: improved customer satisfaction and the ability to make informed decisions about network investment based on actual intelligence.
