Smart Automatic Renewal Service, Digital River, Inc. - Digital River, Inc.

Smart Automatic Renewal Service:

Subscription services are on the rise and we want customers and clients to make the most of their recurring services. To solve for involuntary churn and other common payment processing issues that prevent customers from successfully auto renewing their subscriptions, Digital River has developed a suite of intelligent tools to optimize the renewal process:

  • Dynamic Calendar Attempts – provides the ability to determine the best day to submit a payment authorization request.
  • Time of Day – provides the ability to schedule the renewal of subscriptions at a specific time of day.
  • Processor & Merchant ID (MID) Management – provides the ability to specify the Processor and Merchant ID to be used for an authorization request.

Instead of a one size fits all set of static business rules managing the renewal process, Digital River has further optimized our tools with Machine Learning (ML) capabilities. ML allows Digital River to analyze the individual attributes of each renewing subscription and determine the best day and time to submit an authorization request, in addition to which payment processor is best suited to support the authorization request.

Prior to implementing ML models, our Billing Operations team needed to manually set hundreds of business rules to schedule retries of failed subscriptions based on different conditions (countries, decline types, etc.). By deploying the ML models, Digital River saves an incredible amount of time configuring rules and patterns and our Clients recognize significantly better recovery rates as a result.  

With auto renewing subscriptions, there is usually a window ranging from several days to a couple of weeks in which the merchant will try renewing a subscription. If the first attempt to capture funds fails, the merchant will automatically try again later. Most subscription management platforms utilize a static schedule for determining the next retry date. With Smart Automatic Renewal Services however, the next retry date is determined by evaluating the remaining days left in the renewal window and selecting only the days that have the highest probability of succeeding. 

Similar logic is applied when determining what time a transaction should be submitted for authorization. Success rates can vary significantly from one hour to the next based on a wide set of variables associated with an issuing bank and the individual subscriber. Here again, with ML Digital River predicts the best time slot for submitting an authorization request and routes the transaction accordingly.

Predictive algorithms are also employed to determine the best path for routing transactions through our multi-acquiring network. With the Processor & MID Management tool, historic performance data is combined with the attributes of the renewing subscription to select the Processor and Merchant ID that has the highest probability of succeeding.

Predictive models however are only as good as the data that they are trained on. With millions of transactions processed annually over the last 25+ years, Digital River is able to continuously test, learn, and iterate with its models. The result is millions of dollars of revenue saved that otherwise our Clients would have lost.

  • LivePerson's AI-powered Conversational Cloud transforms brand-consumer engagement with real-time intent detection, responses, and analytics - LivePerson, Inc.

    LivePerson’s Conversational AI Technology Powers Consumer-to-Brand Conversations

    LivePerson's Conversational Cloud is on the forefront of connecting consumers and brands -- in easy and meaningful ways never thought possible -- through groundbreaking conversational AI, empowering every consumer to stop wasting time on hold or crawling through websites by messaging with their favorite brands in real time instead, just as they do with friends and family.

    LivePerson's Conversational Cloud is on the forefront of connecting consumers and brands -- in easy and meaningful ways never thought possible -- through groundbreaking conversational AI, empowering every consumer to stop wasting time on hold or crawling through websites by messaging with their favorite brands in real time instead, just as they do with friends and family.


    LivePerson’s Conversational Cloud empowers brands to instantly respond to messages, answer questions, resolve customer intents, and route inquiries to human experts as needed. Conversational AI — which communicates in a human-like way by recognizing speech, text, and intent — is at the heart of the Conversational Cloud. It provides the personalized, high-touch experiences that consumers demand — all on the same messaging channels they love using every day with family and friends, like SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Apple Business Chat, Google RCS, LINE, WeChat, and messaging on brand websites and apps.


    While many of the world’s largest brands already used LivePerson’s industry-leading LiveEngage platform, the new Conversational Cloud platform, launched in 2020, includes powerful new tools, including Intent Manager and Performance Optimizer.


    Intent Manager — a real-time intent recognition and classification engine that analyzes consumer intentions at every point in the conversation — lets brands instantly understand what consumers want, then take the appropriate action to respond. It is powered by LivePerson’s proprietary natural language understanding (NLU) capabilities and machine learning algorithms, which are grounded in 20+ years of conversational data and more than one billion messaging transcripts across a variety of industries. Intent Manager is currently being used by top brands, including Chipotle Mexican Grill, to gain real-time insights and take immediate action to improve customer service, marketing, and sales automations. 


    Key benefits of Intent Manager include:


    - Automatically understands about 50% of consumer intents with preconfigured, out-of-the-box intent models customized for telco, financial services, retail, airlines, and other industries. 

     - Enables data scientists, content creators, and even nontechnical employees like contact center agents, to fine-tune or configure custom intents from an intuitive interface. 

     - Empowers brands to make important policy, process, and product-related decisions. 

     - Routes conversations to the agent or bot best equipped to resolve them at high satisfaction levels. 


    Performance Optimizer’s 2020 launch provided brands with a new, AI-powered tool to measure and manage the health of their conversational operations. It is the only measurement tool on the market empowering brands to do all of the following in one self-service dashboard: 


     - Measure critical key performance indicators (KPIs) for conversational experiences

     - Use AI to automatically assess performance and provide actionable insights

     - Easily track, for the first time ever, conversational performance against internal targets and industry benchmarks

     - Deliver robust executive reporting data with clear recommendations for improvement.


    As the COVID-19 crisis meant brands were replacing old ways of measuring the effectiveness of phone-based customer service and needed new ways to measure conversational experiences, the launch of Performance Optimizer meant they could accurately assess how they were helping customers, then make real-time changes to ensure their connections were as meaningful as possible.


    As automation became a key part of brands’ strategies for reaching customers at scale, data from the Conversational Cloud demonstrated the rapid growth of automation on the platform:


     - The volume of automation-powered messaging conversations is up 100% from the end of 2019. 

     - Over the same time period, the volume of messaging conversations fully contained by automation (completed with no human agent needed) has tripled. 

     - Automation now plays a role in approximately 70% of all messaging conversations on the platform.
