Segmenting Customers According to Their Multidimensional Contact Sequences - Application of a Multidimensional Sequence Alignment Approach

We used a multidimensional sequence alignment method to cluster customers of a retailer for consumer electronics according to the multidimensional sequences of their customer contacts, their functions and importance. Results reveal differences in the customers’ behavior concerning the customer contacts, their functions and importance across the purchase process, as well as between the segments identified.
