Outsourcing: Business Processing & Document Management Services
- Delayed insight & complex risk driver identification process
- Expensive data engineering overhead
- High cost for risk misalignment
- Fully trained AI model in less than 6 weeks
- Over 90 percent accuracy in forecasting workload volumes
- Improved customer service and operational efficiency
SPS was looking to develop predictive analytics to improve staffing alignment and utilization. Specifically, they wanted to predict daily volumes for the upcoming five rolling business days. SPS's goal was to use these predictions to determine staff requirements by zone and better steer the client on downstream processing needs.
SPS experienced a varying and unpredictable daily volume of its client's loan documentation for processing. This presented a significant challenge to the business regarding staffing utilization and SLA compliance and resulted in inconsistent levels of efficiency.
Disparate data sources, inconsistent/incomplete data, and limited in-house data science resources provided significant headwinds to making more data-centric and AI-driven decisions as an organization.
AI & Data Analytics for Improved Customer Success & Operational Efficiency
Working with Devron's data science experts and using its federated machine learning and data science platform, SPS developed a predictive AI model for determining critical daily work volumes. The team leveraged Devron to analyze disparate, private datasets without moving data, including loan package volumes, processing stage details, and broader external market data, such as interest rates, to better predict loan documentation volumes.
SPS also analyzed workload sources and employee efficiency to provide insight to its customer to streamline the operation jointly.
In less than six weeks, SPS had a predictive AI model that forecasted daily volumes with over a 90 percent accuracy rate, vastly improving customer service and operational efficiency.
SPS seeks out innovative ways to improve operational performance for its clients. The partnership and solution provided by Devron was an accelerant for our AI and data science efforts as it expedited data access while maintaining our strict data privacy standards.
With the ability to unlock new value from our data, SPS will continue to expand its AI capabilities for client service and internal efficiency.
Devron enables data science teams to realize enhanced outcomes, improved data science agility, and reduced overhead—all without moving or exposing data.
