This paper presents a practical implementation of an analytical customer relationship (CRM) model, which aims to increase the customer satisfaction, thereby reducing the rate of attrition. The analytical CRM model not only manages and synchronizes customer relationship management processes, but also creates added value regarding to customers by applying mathematical, predictive methods. This presented model was implemented at a Hungarian gas service provider, and estimates the probability of churn for each customer based on the characteristics of former and present customers. The methodological approach is based on econometrical background; the analytical tool is a binomial logistic regression model. As a result this study presents that using logistic regression models as predictive analytic tool we can fulfil multiple CRM goals. Using the theoretical framework of Swift (2001) we can state that the model consists of more CRM dimensions simultaneously. These are the predicted churn probability as a customer retention dimension, and the information about the efficiency of different CRM elements, and CRM channels, as a customer attraction dimension.
