Businesses grow and reach critical points in their growth. This is where they can see the inefficiencies, human error, poor business processes, and waste that hold them back. Sometimes, it is possible to correct the human side of things. This could be a more effective management style or a new series of hires to address critical issues.
The right type of smart technology is often a key to solving problems quickly and allowing organizations to grow and expand without high costs. This article will examine several cases where intelligent use of computing power has made a big difference to businesses in the near term. It also discusses technologies that can help the organization on the way to a brighter tomorrow.
The machine brain
A few years back, machine learning and artificial intelligence were the foundation of academic research. Today, AI software is available in many verticals for practical use.
Agriculture is one such vertical. Lanka Prime Agri had many concerns: high labor costs and indeterminate methods of identifying problems with its melon and corn crops. Managers decided to partner with Pristine as an SAP Business One Gold Partner. Lanka Prime, together with its partner began using drone technology to provide high-level views of crops at speeds humans could not match.
SAP Business One, which is the central control point for all data and back-office operations, can allow drone footage to be fed into advanced AI algorithms. The software was able to quickly diagnose pests and crop diseases. It could also provide advice on the best pesticide or fungicide application.
The ML (machine-learning) routines were able to identify early signs and show humans where fertilizers are most effective.
Lanka Prime Agri was able to reduce costs by using SAP Business One to automate processes and control costs.
SAP Business One was able to help farmers create Agriculture Activity Plans that would cover all their holdings, plot-by-plot.
Managers of companies also had the opportunity to gain real insight from data collected across all lands under their control.
Darling Digital World is another AI success story. Darling Digital World used technology to assist its employees. It leveraged facial recognition in real-time so that customers could be identified when they arrived on-site.
SAP Business One's databases instantly retrieved information, informing store staff via cell phone about each customer's past and preferences. Teams could not assume that every customer is the same. Instead, they could set up a retail store with customized offers and packages for each visitor.
Customers can also shop online for retail products, which allows Darling staff to up-sell and cross-sell.
Darling Digital World chose Avaniko to be SAP Business One Accredited Partners. This was crucial because the consulting business was able to roll out gamification in sales to employees (to improve performance) as well as provide store managers with performance metrics.
GMM Coatings' technology has made it easier for human operators to make fewer errors and give them more background information, allowing them to perform their jobs better.
Inefficiencies and oversights led to raw materials being misplaced or not properly tracked. Stock valuations suffered because of inefficiencies in inventory management. Dispatching errors added to this problem.
IoT devices were installed by the company at key points within the business, including on weighing machines. This produced data that was stored in SAP Business One. This enabled accurate information to be applied across all departments, including sales, operations, and dispatch. The precise tracking of quantities and weights was also possible.
Streamlining operations helped to save significant money, make back-office auditing and check simple, and reduce labor costs.
GMM Coatings selected Qnomix Technologies as a trusted partner in SAP Business One customization and implementation. It was able to integrate the SAP stack and other technologies, which GMM could not achieve alone.
SAP Business One is a product that can be used by small and medium-sized businesses to integrate their production and operations processes and logistics. This allows them to address business criticality issues.
