Business need

The Dutch housing corporation Woonbedrijf wants to ensure a high quality of living by adopting a more customer-driven approach. To achieve this, Woonbedrijf requires optimum insight into the needs of tenants and house-hunters.


Using IBM® SPSS® solutions for research and analytics, Woonbedrijf is able to quickly and efficiently identify the wishes of current and potential clients, as well as their behaviour and opinions. In addition to quantitative analysis, other important instruments are large-scale qualitative analysis of online forum discussions and polls.



Through careful segmentation into tenants and areas, Woonbedrijf is able to effectively cater for the needs and behaviour of different target groups. Quick and simple analyses of large volumes of text provide a better understanding of customers’ satisfaction levels, wishes and opinions. This helps to improve the level of service and mitigate risks. Modelling allows Woonbedrijf to anticipate the behaviour of tenants and house-hunters even more effectively.
