Aito Technologies, a provider of customer experience analytics (CEA), today announced an agreement with UCell, the second largest operator in Uzbekistan, to deploy its analytics product suite.

The data analysis can be turned around quickly, which will enable UCell to respond to market trends and customer preferences, reduce churn, and increase customer acquisition.
Mahbuba Sadikova, Chief Marketing Officer at UCell, explained: "The mobile communication industry in Uzbekistan has experienced remarkable growth over the past few years. UCell has played a major part in the development of this market and we are currently the second largest operator in the country. Aito's analytics will help us to further strengthen of our position and increasing our market share by developing services that are tailored to specific customer segments. The analytics provide us with a set of results that can be accessed easily by the sales and marketing teams, enabling them to respond quickly to changing market conditions and meet demand."

The contract with UCell is further acknowledgement of the value of analytics and the benefits that they can provide for operators.
