An Offensive Strategy: Paychex

Frank Fiorille, senior director for risk management at Paychex, a $2.2 billion payroll and human resources services company, says that the trend in risk management is “moving toward offense.” So when increased competition started hurting the company’s top line, he set up an ERM Predictive Analytics group. 

Several models were developed to combat loss rates and enhance cross-selling. The first of these cross-selling models, the Predictive Algorithm Targeting Retirement Investment Clients Knowledge (PATRICK), proved to be a hit with the sales team because it helped them prioritize the sales of 401(k) plans to the core client base at Paychex, improving the dial-to-appointment ratio for the company’s telemarketers by more than 50%.
