Abstract:

The large penetration and use of mobile devices is a fast and global phenomenon. The availability of mobile information has enabled firms to better understand customer behavior and to design new services based on these technologies. However, the development of methodologies to extract valuable insights from big data sources has not followed the same speed. In this research, we proposed a new methodology using machine-learning, to integrate and characterize usage patterns in this domain. Specifically, we utilize multiple proprietary phone traffic data sets from Chinese and Chilean cities with over two billion observations from which we reconstruct both the customer social interaction and mobility patterns. We found rich patterns of customer mobility that can be used by firms to enhance their segmentation and targeting processes.
