Gold winner of Innovation in Analytics in Marketing,

Adroit were Gold Winner of Innovation in Analytics for their work with Age UK in helping to create & visualise an attitudinal segmentation on their Supporter Base.  The segmentation has been adopted across the organisation and the visualisation work was key to getting this adoption. The guide was successful in condensing and visualising the segmentation, and replacing longer presentations and descriptions that had been generated as part of the analysis and segmentation work.  It provides a key comparative way to examine each cluster, as well as exploring relative differences between them. It has generated many insights for the organisation, including how to cross-target different audiences and develop creative propositions, and provides a basis for key reporting and NPD strategy.

  • Highly Commended for Classic Analysis Insight

Alzheimer’s Society Adroit developed highly successful legacy model & forecasting

A legacy propensity model was deployed into FastStats in September 2012.  Adroit also delivered underlying data in their Legasee, forecasting and planning tool, which was used to determine a test strategy for the initial 20k mailing, as well as allowing a long term legacy scenario planning tool.

The initial use of the model generated 43 new pledges, and 118 legacy interest responses in total, as well as £1k in unprompted donations. However it was the response distribution which demonstrated the overriding model power, with 68% of all response, and 86% of pledge response (which was the outcome that the model was specifically predicting) coming from the first decile. This was extremely strong and even higher than the theoretic gains of 67%, especially when considering this was on the net contactable file.
