Examples of our work

1M+ IoT data points processed daily

A North American real estate investor and developer wanted to reimagine the tenant experience across its residential, commercial, and mixed-use properties. FinLab partnered with them to build and scale innovative digital solutions, powered by a robust data and analytics infrastructure. We built an application that enabled residential tenants to coordinate their move-ins, submit rent payments, manage maintenance requests, and order services such as housekeeping and grocery delivery. Also, at the company’s commercial properties, we developed and launched a comprehensive data-backed program that helped evaluate building wellness based on air quality, density metrics, and thermal imaging, informed by real-time data streams from IoT devices.

$30M savings identified

A US lawn-services company sought to improve its long-term strategic growth and near-term profit by reducing the value at risk from high rates of customer churn. FinLab worked with the company to build an innovative analytics-powered save desk application, which supported the call center and regional branch managers in proactively identifying customers likely to cancel services and offering personalized treatments based on those customers’ churn triggers. The application also allows for continual measurement and improvement of retention efforts, and helps identify 65 percent of at-risk customers, with a potential savings of around $30 million in the near term.

8–12 percent loss reduction

A US financial-services firm sought to digitize and standardize its corporate credit-monitoring processes and improve its underwriting efficiency and quality. FinLab worked with the organization to develop a single integrated workflow platform, powered by historical assessment data and advanced analytics. The platform evaluates credit analysts’ cases, automating high-confidence assessments and supporting underwriting reviews by providing relevant data and easy-to-use digital worksheets. The new platform also enables the firm to mitigate operational risks through process consistency across teams and improve its compliance controls through a complete and transparent chain of custody and enhanced tracking and monitoring.
