- 2019atriga InfoCenter™ (New Edition)
2019 - The atriga InfoCenter™ (New Edition) becomes part of the personalized, fully digital atriga Customer Communication Journey
For the first time, an online information system for defaulting customers reacts to the individual communication process with the individual person.
This makes atriga the only company to offer consistently systemically controlled dynamic communication with defaulting customers across all communication channels. The system uses the individual communication behaviour of the defaulting customer and reacts with content-related answers or targeted information (content) to achieve a maximum of personalised communication.
The atriga Costumer Communication Journey impressively demonstrates what ‘service instead of reminders’ means.

Semantic content recognition (AI) for automated content understanding of incoming communication.
- 2018atriga Contact Center
2018 - Replacement and expansion of the existing atriga Contact Center with a highly innovative Contact Center

All real-time bi-directional communication channels are mapped via the new atriga Contact Center (e.g. telephone, chat, messenger).

The specific approach of atriga, service instead of reminders, can be significantly enhanced by this.

- 2015atriga Dynamic Templates
2015 - Dunning text templates are replaced by (text) element templates
The use of (text) element templates instead of dunning text templates across all communication channels is a mandatory prerequisite for the qualified and automated (also interactive) control of highly personalized communication with defaulting customers and thus for the development of an innovative fully digital receivables management and collection platform for international use.
This comprehensively increases the complexity of the system, as thousands of element templates have to be managed and controlled in the context of international deployment to create tens of thousands of variants.
