I was just saying the exact same thing yesterday

Contact customer service for 4 mins 45 seconds? That’s £3.11 of cost.

That explains the state of support then.

This then allowed us to calculate profit-and-loss for every single customer, across all 8 million customers.

We could also roll it up into cohorts - show me the bottom 10% of loss-making customers

Cue conspiracy theories about account closures for non-profitable customers.


Perhaps have better trained, more knowledgeable support who read and answer the actual question, so that interactions take less time overall.

‘More than 4bn’ so i was hoping higher… maybe I’m being aspirational. It would be a great exit opportunity, especially as Crowdcube just acquired Semper, the secondary platform. Although I think I’d be tempted to hold for longer, or part-sell

The usual bypasses don’t work. Seems like you need to be a remember to get the proper article at all.
