Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Kevin Hankins, COO of C Spire Wireless was interviewed by Alan Turner of the Mississippi Business Journal.
Wireless analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.
“I learned quite a bit more about C Spire reading this interview, and watching the video clip. C Spire COO Kevin Hankins talked about the new economy and direction the company was heading as it focuses on personalized services with Percs. How because of personalized service C Spire knows a lot about its customers. What they like and don’t like. He also talks about how this sharing improves customer’s interactions and strengthens relationships,” says Principal analyst Jeff Kagan.
In the article, Hankins talks about C Spire rewards program, PERC, which he says is a first in the industry. He talks about how this program is not typical. How most are tied to what customers spend. C Spire PERC’s program is based on customer engagememt. C Spire currently has around 20 ways for customers to engage with the brand and earn points.
Hankins says the C Spire customers are tied in with the company and the brand. Rewards activity generates points. The points can be traded in for things like discounts, faster services and gift cards to national brands. They also have PERC’s with a Purpose. Giving points to charitable causes.
“C Spire is using Percs, its unique loyalty program to get closer with their customers. And it seems to be working. This is an important lesson, which other wireless carriers should pick up on. C Spire Perc’s program has turned the traditional loyalty program around and has so far been very successful,” says Jeff Kagan.
“Competition keeps changing and so does the industry. It will be interesting to follow C Spire to see if they can keep up this edge. So far they are doing a good job,” says Kagan.
C Spire is in the southeast United States, serves more than one million customers, both consumers and business, on a 4G LTE network, and sells Apple iPhone, Google Android, Samsung Galaxy, and many other popular new devices.
