We did a customer retention analysis on residential customers in cooperation with E.ON.
In the course of the project,
- the determinants of customer retention has been detected,
- the motives that determine the readiness to change the supplier have been analysed,
- and the customer retention has been measured under the consideration of the industry's specifications (contractual relationship, low-involvement product).
Quantitative and qualitative pre-studies served to develop a theory based explication model. Model variables have been operationalized and a multi-step verification in terms of validity and reliability has then been made based on a inquiry. Specific recommendations for actions have finally been worked out.
