4 Executive summary Communications service providers (CSPs) are well positioned to sell SMAC services to SMEs. The difficult part is delivering these services with a good customer experience. CSPs need to be easier to buy from, and need to simplify and digitally transform their processes and operations. SMEs are demanding a one-stop shop for their digital services. They are more reliant than ever on technology and the latest apps to compete effectively. CSPs have the challenge of selling digital services profitably to a diverse set of small businesses, while at the same time adding value and providing real business solutions. CSPs are transforming processes, developing integrated network and cloud platforms, and value propositions that focus on business benefits and individual customer segments. CSPs need to speed up provisioning times and offer better levels of customisation on solution components. Analytics and sophisticated customer segmentation play a key role in helping SMEs understand customer requirements in terms of vertical solutions and preferences. CSPs need to add partnerships to stretch their brand into new areas such as digital marketing, mobile advertising platforms, mobile point of sale solutions and the Internet of Things (IoT).

5 Delivering a good customer experience to SMEs is a real challenge Integrated cloud and network platforms, analytics and integrated omni-channel customer care are key to efficiently serving SMEs, increasing customer satisfaction and loyalty. Customer experience and engagement is critical in knowing the customer and ensuring loyalty and satisfaction. SMEs can use self-serve portals for routine ordering, bill checks etc., but service providers also recognise that the personal touch is an important option for SMEs at particular stages of the buying journey. The key is giving customers a choice and a consistent experience. Service providers are investing in teams to support small businesses to give advice on technology and cloud solutions, help with migration and provide after-sales support. This can be done in-store, on the phone and via web chats or video. CSPs are also investing in marketing and customer engagement, for example small business blogs, social media, developing case studies and best-practice material. This is a positive step for service providers in developing better customer relationships. CSPs have a huge amount of rich data on SME customers available to them the types of businesses, the types of apps they are using, the stage of maturity of the businesses and their preferred customer support channels. Buying patterns can also be analysed, interpreted and fed back into marketing, sales, product design and customer care departments. Figure 2: CSPs should offer omni-channel customer care and should obtain a full picture of SME customers Print Internet Mobile Social Retail store Call centre Scan brochures Read reviews Order online Ask opinion Check order Collect in store Compare products Post review Query and problem resolution Read contract In store use Return and exchange in another store Analysys Mason Limited

6 CSPs are taking control of SME cloud strategy with integrated services and customer care Service providers have to ensure that whatever services they launch can be supported end-to-end. There is a move away from a generic cloud marketplace to provisioning best-of-breed, handpicked business apps that can be fully supported not just with a secure cloud platform, but also in terms of customer support cloud consulting, technical support and migration assistance. SMEs can be loyal and profitable customers especially if buying multiple services. CSPs are focused on developing portfolios with customer needs and technology journeys in mind, starting naturally with connectivity and then unified communications moving to collaboration tools and cloud business apps (SaaS). In terms of cloud services, the focus is on best-of-breed apps that increase productivity (for example, Office 365) or protect the business (for example, device security or asset tracking), or enable revenue (for example, mobile point of sale). CSPs are also moving to take full control of cloud SME strategy, adding value with cloud enablement, provisioning and analytics, not over-relying on partners but leveraging partners such as cloud brokers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and local partners when it makes sense. The next phase is to develop more vertical solutions incorporating big data analytics, IoT, mobile advertising and digital marketing solutions.

7 Recommendations 1 CSPs should develop cloud and business app services, and digital marketing and analytics services, that add value, even if margins are lower than mobile and fixed voice and data services. CSPs should aim to provide a full solution to SMEs and be their partner of choice for their ICT needs. Consumer ARPU is under pressure and SMEs are an important revenue source, but they have an increasing choice of providers. CSPs have the advantage of existing customer relationship and local stores with business advisors. 2 CSPs have to get the back-end systems and processes right to deliver a positive customer experience, before launching new SME cloud services. Of course, it is no small task for many service providers to transform legacy processes and systems, but the single biggest issue that comes up in terms of provisioning SME services is how hard it is to get the service right reduce provisioning times, provide accurate billing and provide real-time changes. 3 Vertical solutions make sense for CSPs to develop, particularly when targeting larger SMEs with bundles of services. This is new territory for CSPs and can be very unforgiving if not done with total commitment. Customers can tell when solutions are only skin deep or if CSPs are really taking the trouble to listen to them and understand the digital needs of their business. CSPs will need to improve their ability to work with partners, develop new value propositions around business benefits and conduct studies showing use cases by vertical etc. Analysys Mason Limited
