Case studies

Case Study 1: Workflow Optimisation

Alfa implemented a suite of intelligent workflow analytics tools capable of analysing workflow usage, bottlenecks and recurring processes within the Alfa Systems platform.

By detecting inefficiencies, bottlenecks, repetitive manual tasks and high variability, Alfa delivered:

  • A refined set of workflow sequences, reducing completion time by days in some cases
  • Reduced handovers, human intervention and error prevalence
  • UI refinements reducing the amount of manual data input required
Case Study 2: Credit Decisioning

Working with customers and CRAs, Alfa implemented an AI Credit Decisioning engine, capable of replacing legacy scorecards, while significantly improving the auto-accept rate and reducing incidence of bad debt.

  • Reduced bad debt by 35%
  • Increased auto accept rate by 30%
  • Provided customer-customisable auto-accept/bad debt balance
  • Enhanced fair lending, reduced bias and increased decision understanding through explainability
Case Study 3: Delinquency Prediction

Building on AI credit decisioning, delinquency prediction allowed our customer to understand where contracts are likely to default and take preventative action, reducing the occurrence of default. 

  • Used a variety of data sources (economic, portfolio, agreement, telemetry) to understand the health of a contract
  • Suggested next-best action based on the customer, contract and asset
  • Aggregated metrics to provide an accurate portfolio-level risk value
