Takealot.com, South Africa’s leading online retailer, joined forces today with predictive customer analytics platform provider, Zodiac, to bring Zodiac’s powerful forward-looking insights to its marketing efforts.
The partnership will allow Takealot.com to optimize its customer acquisition and retention strategies, leveraging Zodiac’s predictive metrics to gain insights such as which customers are at the highest risk of churning.

Gaining a much more insightful picture of our customers and how they shop helps us improve the service we offer them.

We’re excited to see what our new Zodiac analytics can add to our customer insights.”
