Your customers are diverse, as is their profitability contribution to your business. Predicting their profitability in advance can assist in improving your bottom line in multiple ways by decreasing volatility, better capitalizing on the most profitable customers, and in finding ways to improve the profit contribution of your least profitable customers.
