Rio de Janeiro, February 07, 2023 - TIM Brasil reinforces its commitment to the quality and efficiency of customer service and starts to adopt the SAS Forecast Server solution, an automated tool focused on forecasting consumer demand in its support channels . The platform allows the company, which has approximately 68 million customers, to have greater accuracy and efficiency in service management, generating high-quality forecasts quickly and automatically.

The tool automatically calculates the expected attendance for each month, taking into account variables such as seasonality, account expirations, service suspensions, among others. Based on this information, it is possible to predict, for example, the days and times when a peak service is expected and prepare the teams to offer the best experience.

“With the automated process and more accurate data, we were able to predict volumes and costs. The more accurate our projections are, the better the cost and operational performance. In the Prepaid pilot project, we have already noticed benefits such as the reduction of deviation in volume by 20% and the increase in the time of consultants dedicated to analysis from 60% to 80%”, comments Angela Montet, Director of Customer Relations Monitoring at TIM Brasil .

To start the project, TIM and SAS carried out, over the course of a year, a pilot project in the base of Prepaid customers and developed different models until reaching the final format. With monitoring by the strategic teams, it was possible to define the main variables and arrive at the version that is already being used. Currently, the project is operating in the Prepaid and Control segments, with plans to expand to Postpaid and Corporate Voice in 2023.

Next steps

With the adoption of the tool, the next steps include the evolution in statistical modeling, including the use of Artificial Intelligence elements through SAS Visual Forecasting, which creates forecasts quickly and automatically using machine learning techniques. In addition, the idea is to expand the methodology to all service channels.

“We continue to evolve to increasingly offer the best experience to our customers and make service a differential. The implementation of the tool meets this objective, allowing a leap in the team's ability to identify correlations between events and customer contact behavior in a quicker and more assertive way”, emphasizes Angela.
