Proprietary, award-winning AI technology enables an average 23% improvement in client case resolution times and improves client system operations

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rimini Street, Inc.

  • Integrating multiple data sources and capturing multi-dimensional engineer skills
  • Applying machine learning algorithms to normalize and rank engineer skills

The technology, which resides on the Rimini Street AI platform, empowers Rimini Street engineers to resolve cases much faster with ultra-responsive support and services. Since implementing Case Assignment Advisor, Rimini Street has improved case resolution times for clients by an average of 23% while increasing its overall client satisfaction score to an average case survey rating of 4.9 out of 5.0 (where 5.0 is “excellent”).
