Want to Gain New Insight into Your Customer Data? Here Are 6 Reasons to Start Using Dynamics 365 Customer Insights

Consumer demand changes at a rapid pace, and keeping up with what your customers want is essential. But in order to understand your customers, you need data.

 

In recent years, customer data has become more important than ever for businesses in every industry. Marketing to your customers effectively all starts with a deep, detailed understanding of customer preferences. Simply put: the more you know about your customers and your target market, the more competitive your business will be.

 

Dynamics 365 offers a powerful tool for gaining valuable insight into your customer data: Dynamics 365 Customer Insights. Below, we’ll take a look at how Customer Insights works, as well as how it can help you understand your customers better than ever before -- even if you’re already gathering and analyzing customer data.

 

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Insights: How Does It Work? 

Customer Insights starts by gathering customer data from a variety of sources. It then processes and aggregates this data using advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technology. Your sales, marketing, and support teams can then easily access this data, giving them new insight into each of your customers.

 

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Insights comes equipped with Power Platform connectors. This makes it easy to import data from Power BI, Power Apps. But Customer Insights’ import capabilities don’t stop there: the software can also gather data from JSON and REST APIs, as well as Microsoft Graph, Access, and Excel. Customer Insights also comes with easy-to-customize profiles for your customers. Using these profiles, your team can instantly access the information they need.

 

Why Use Customer Insights?

If you’re already using another program to analyze customer data, you might be asking: why should I switch to Customer Insights? Here are six reasons:

 

  1. Easy Feedback Integration 

With Customer Insights, you can include feedback from your customers as part of individual product profiles. This helps you understand customer perception of various products, allowing you to identify where there’s room for improvement.

 

  1. Trend Identification 

Staying on top of industry trends is essential for maintaining a competitive edge. With Customer Insights, you can identify changing trends in customer demand ahead of your competitors.

 

  1. Managing Inventory
