Finnovating (F): Please tell us a little about FCB.ai and how the FinTech started to be.

Antoine Paillusseau (AP): FCB.ai, a global technology company, specialises in performance-driven conversational AI solutions. Founded in South Africa in 2016, with offices in Africa and Europe, FCB.ai is focused on revolutionising the user experience, with a core focus in financial services including insurance, banking, telecoms, retail, debt collection, etc. As a performance-focused partner to its clients, FCB.ai manages and optimises its AI solutions over time to ensure high performance.

 

(F): How did the idea come about?

(AP): FCB.ai was established in 2016 by Antoine Paillusseau and Romain Diaz. The founders recognised that call centres are increasingly under pressure, inefficient, saturated and expensive. Often not delivering the intended results in terms of  sales conversion and customer satisfaction.  Thus they dedicated FCB.ai to the goal of bringing people closer to financial services with an interactive and fun experience, while enabling financial service providers to enhance customer experience and maximise business performance by saving time and money.

 

(F): You are the current CEO of FCB.ai. How does the company fit in the Global FinTech ecosystem?

(AP):From the heart of South Africa, with the headquarters in Luxembourg, FCB.ai continues to expand its reach to Africa, Europe,  and the Middle East to enable innovation worldwide. We have a continuous commitment to guaranteeing performance-driven, high quality technology solutions in which clients can realise their ROI goals, relying on FCB.ai as an indispensable partner to unleash their full potential.

 

(F): What is FCB.ai’s value proposition?

(AP):FCB.ai offers powerful solutions to help businesses revolutionise customer experiences and achieve high-performance results.

 

(F): How do you think the implementation of digital functionalities will impact the traditional business model?

(AP): Customers have increased their use of self-service during the pandemic. According to a survey conducted by Salesforce, 65% of customers prefer self-service for simple matters. In addition, 83% of customers expect to interact with someone immediately when they contact a company.

The increased demand for customer service isn’t being met with increased resources as businesses take a hard look at their budgets amid economic uncertainty. Conversational agents help automate 80% of customer queries so call center agents can focus on more complex queries. As an example, a popular tactic for relieving agents of high-volume, low-complexity cases is deflecting them to an AI-powered chatbot in the first place.

With conversational AI, Financial service providers can expect a 90% completion, a 4.5/5 average customer experience rating, a 74% collection rate and a 98% non-cancellation outcome. Furthermore, with addition of our marketplace, clients can begin to digitise many manual processes for improved customer experiences and accuracy such as eKYC, OCR and digital signatures.

 

(F): Is FCB.ai interested in partnering with large companies in the sector? How do you think Finnovating can help you with this goal?

(AP): Yes, FCB.ai is always willing to collaborate/partner with companies.

Our conversational AI Solutions enable clients to customise and automate important customer interactions including quotes, sales conversions, debt collection, customer service, claims and more.

(AP): Global Presence, Allowing Startups to connect and collaborate to meet their objectives, finding talent though the challenges we are allowed to create on the platform as well as being able to communicate with companies who are looked at as potential clients.
