Improving Organization Readiness using AI-led Automation process
Arvind Handuu & Zoran Gacovski
These days you cannot help but see nearly all industries talking about revolution in the offing as a result of Artificial Intelligence, Analytics, Robotics, Robotic Process Automation and whatever other ‘nom de guerre’ your industry uses.
Here is an attempt to catalog a few opportunities for a business executive responsible for helping the companies take advantage of the opportunities ahead.
Digital transformation becomes highly-integrated into the business processes and AI is leading the business technology upsurge. Applying AI in the business process automation is bringing a lot of benefits that come with it.
The automation of processes is a strategic approach that can help organizations to improve the workflow efficiency and responsiveness in their environments. Automation will lead to speeding-up the processes, ensuring flawless outcomes, while reducing the overall costs.
AI-led Automation Use Cases
AI-led automation process is based on different business intelligence and analytics solutions, applied in different scenarios – from decision-making to customers care. This is typically classified in the following categories:
– Decision Support and Strategic
– Operations efficiency
– Engagement Experience
Here we present a few opportunities for you to explore:
AI-led automation models can assist the managers in making decisions within a business process. The advancements in AI introduced multiple machine learning algorithms (decision trees, neural networks etc.). These algorithms can help the managers and business-owners to solve problems by applying previous datasets for getting the expected output. For example, the models can help to decide whether a customer should be sent a product recommendation, or needs a follow-up call.
Automation of the recurrent tasks is one of the most common applications of AI. AI-based process automation as a tool that applies machine learning and AI methods – can help to handle a large volume of repetitive processes that otherwise need a committed human workforce.
The AI can be used to learn, observe, and analyze data sets that are collected from various channels and identify patterns that humans cannot. Businesses can apply AI methods to determine their course of action. For example, analysis of the data patterns for fraudulent activities related to online transactions, or segmenting clients based on their buying behavior for marketing purposes.
Let’s consider an example of calls handling at a telecom provider, a chatbot, which, based on Artificial Intelligence, presents the customer with best offers, and subsequently starts automated process for recording the order in an order management system. The benefits are higher turnover, faster and more effective handling time and lower costs.
the management of business processes is an intensive process that requires significant financial resources, as well as time. The automation, on the other hand, is cost-effective and can use the available resources. Thus, process management steps can once be implemented within an automation technique – and applied many times later.
: At insurance companies, as an example, the AI-based tool can assess the level and accuracy of the claim by analyzing photographs of the damage. Then the tool will ensure that the damage data is recorded in the claims handling system.
AI tools can be trained to scan a large number of records and extract the information to database and made available for future processing. Companies can leverage AI-based automation tools to manage typically paper-based processes, e.g. legacy land records, invoice to payment cycles, oil well leases and exploration rights management, Title insurance, data exchange between otherwise disconnected applications.
in energy providers – data about meter readings are gathered from incoming unstructured emails using AI technology. These meter readings are then recorded in the backend system and processed as necessary.
AI-facilitated process automation solutions will help businesses to overcome performance barriers and improve their work efficiency and responsiveness. AI is no more a technology that is frightening and hard to adopt.
Small, as well as large organizations can deliberately understand the power of AI-based automation tools for optimizing their business processes. In the upcoming years, the adoption of AI for business process automation will become ubiquitous and more accessible for all organizations.
I have had the pleasure of working with Visvero (Sandi) for almost two years now. She has been an extremely resourceful contact and is always quick to help. She and her team at Visvero were able to find candidates for even the most stringent requirements and job descriptions. She is a pleasure to work with and will make sure any candidate she sends over is a qualified candidate. I would recommend any recruiters working on C2C contract positions to reach out to her.
Process Automation, Budgeting, Applications Development, Google Charts, PHP, Open Source, Pentaho
Visvero helped us develop a industry transforming solution to have a direct profit impact on mid-size landscaping industry. We have been able to help our clients manage the business lifecycle with their clients from the lead generation to contracts execution phase. The application helps our clients identify and independently track and manage each cost component on any project or maintenance contract. Tracking/ managing these allows our clients to better control quality and profitability of each contract.
Business Intelligence, Qlik, Alteryx, .NET, Tableau, Sisense, SpotFire, Machine Learning
As an advisor to various state and national agencies NIC takes on several blue sky technology projects for which we rely on trusted partners for advice and investment of time and treasure. Visvero team invested thousands of person hours helping our team socialize the key analytics technologies and develop and enhance the products for various client projects. The team was always able to take project briefs and create high utility analytics applications. Definitely recommend them for public sector applications projects.
Business Intelligence, Staffing, .NET, Tableau, Flexible
In LA, we are in a competitive market for talent. So, when we had a recent need for specialized Tableau developers, we turned to our trusted friends at Visvero. We were rapidly able to add 3 talented developers on project. Visvero was very flexible in accommodating our request to convert developers as Fandango FTE. I highly recommend Visvero recruiters for being able to find critical Business Intelligence consultants quickly and being flexible with contracts to make the gains permanent.
Business Intelligence, Qlik, OBIEE, Risk Reporting, HR Analytics
“We organized an analytics “bake-off” between IBM using Endeca and Visvero using Qlik. In two weeks the Visvero team was able to deliver a consumer ready Risk and HR analytics application, four weeks later we were just getting started with IBM. And what’s more, my team and I spent over 80 hours getting IBM to start to understand what it is that we needed. Visvero team had a subject matter expert who took all of 6 hours with my team. Engaging Visvero was a “no-brainer” decision.”
Pharmaceuticals, Sales and Research applications, Qlik, SAP
At Allergan, our business team had a very divergent view of output from our analytics roll-out. Visvero was able bridge the gap and deploy a crack team of Qlik and SAP developers who enabled us to deliver the applications in weekly sprints. Our team scaled 1 power user to a team of 8 developers in 10 days. QuikWIN methodology was transformational in how we delivered applications to our customers – the sales organization.
Business Intelligence, Staffing, SAP, Business Objects, Oracle, DB2
This project is a key win for us. Visvero consultants were properly vetted and compliant with our rigorous processes. Consultants appeared to be satisfied with offline mentoring and periodic training on new tools. As a contracted asset the engaged consultants do not have adequate access to same trainings that are available to our FTEs, Visvero closed this gap by creating their internal trainings to support our consultants. It was great for everybody involved. And the teams were super productive!
