To meet the client needs, Evalueserve experts created a dashboard that delivers the information the client needs in easy-to-understand visualizations. For example, stakeholders can select the customer and other profile parameters to get product level recommendations at the customer level. They can also select the product, region and industry to reveal the customer with the highest propensity to buy.
