    A 3-minute conversation with a friendly chatbot provides a personalized set of retirement action items.

Retirement advice doesn’t have to be complicated. According to AARP, 3 out of 4 Americans between 55 and 64 have less than $30K saved for retirement. Finding a creative way to address that sobering statistic was the challenge brought to us by the Ad Council and AARP.  We needed a more positive and engaging way to empower 50-somethings to save, so we nixed the often grim and impersonal financial calculators and instead created an approachable retirement chatbot named Avo. Avo guides users through 3 minutes of delightful animations and easy-to-answer questions, ultimately providing a personalized set of the Top 3 Action Items each user can take to get his or her retirement on track.
