The AA approached Afiniti to optimize their inbound retention queues.
In 2014, Afiniti first deployed in AA’s insurance retention queue across 200 agents. The initial deployment cycle spanned 10 weeks across 2 sites. This resulted in an immediate increase in their retention rate.
Due to success within AA’s insurance retention queue, the business saw the value in optimizing key performance metrics across other business areas, including in the roadside assistance business in 2015, equating to a total of 650 live agents.
In 2018, Afiniti and the AA are in active dialogue to identify additional areas where Afiniti could deliver value.
Afiniti maintains a close relationship with the AA.
On an operational level, a key component of the success of the partnership are the weekly operations and monthly business review sessions program, in which senior executives from the AA’s finance, marketing, operations, sales and technology teams spend dedicated time further understanding the fundamentals of Afiniti’s design and benefits and sharing insights into their strategic priorities and operational processes.
This helps Afiniti’s Artificial Intelligence engineers to ensure their modeling strategy yields optimal performance, which in turn helps a strategic partner like the AA to further secure their position as an industry and market leader.
