The Story
The Story

Incremental sales double powered by deep learning.

Cognitiv surpassed expectations during the initial pilot campaign by driving 28% incremental sales lift, approx. double what the client was seeing previously.

During the next 48 months, Cognitiv was able to cement the partnership by successfully adding new lines of business while continuing to improve performance. Today, the client is a top-three insurance brand and continues to leverage Cognitiv’s services across home, auto, motorcycle, boat, and RV insurance.
