Pizza Hut attains a consistent sales growth of 5 per cent and 12X ROI from customer engagement in the last year by leveraging predictive consumer behavioral intelligence and targeted time-axis campaigns.
Pizza Hut has improved profitability and increased store sales with the help of Capillary Technologies’ Multi-Channel Intelligent Customer Engagement solutions. Pizza Hut is the world's largest pizza chain with over 12,500 restaurants across 91 countries.
Pizza Hut uses Capillary's Customer Intelligence solution to incrementally capture, structure and leverage large quantities of customer data. Capillary’s unique solution enables the brand to break down its massive customer base into numerous clusters and micro clusters based on expressed characteristics, purchase tendencies and behavioral indicators.
