How to Boost Customer Relationship Management via Web Mining Benefiting from the Glass Customer’s Openness

Frederik Bäumer, Bianca Buff

Abstract

Customer Relationship Management refers to the consistent orientation of a company towards its customers. Since this requires customer-specific data sets, techniques such as web mining are used to acquire information about customers and their behavior. In this case study, we show how web mining can be used to automatically collect information from clients’ websites for Customer Relationship Management systems in Business-to-Business environments. Here, we use tailored local grammars to extract relevant information in order to build up a data set that meets the required high quality standards. The evaluation shows that local grammars produce substantial high-quality results, but turn out to be too rigid in some cases. In summary, our case study demonstrates that web mining in combination with local grammars is suitable for Business-to-Business CRM as long as the information demand can be defined precisely and the requested information is available online.
