Artificial Intelligence for retail and wholesale

The physical and online world is increasingly intertwined. Wishes and needs are no longer always visible. Various studies show that retailers and wholesalers saveup to 340 billion euros worldwide by the smart use of artificial intelligence in their company.

why AI for retail and wholesale?

The biggest challenge for retail (online / offline) and wholesale is to predict exactly what customers need. Companies such as Hema have therefore already started using artificial intelligence to improve their inventory management. Nothing is more expensive than an unsaleable stock or a stock that worsens the liquidity because it has been in the warehouse for months.

the importance of innovation with AI & RPA

In 2017, only 10,000 people worked in the artificial intelligence industry worldwide, 95% of whom worked for huge multinationals such as Google and Amazon. This means that only 500 people in the free sector worked on artificial intelligence. 

There are already a few more, but still too few to allow the other industries to catch up. Because artificial intelligence will change business processes so much, rules have already been set by the US government to restrict acquisitions of American AI-related companies by Chinese companies (and this was for Trump.) The Dutch cabinet also sees that it is very important for our country to be at the forefront of technology in artificial intelligence. That is why training has been launched in recent years and she wants to double the investment in artificial intelligence and is allocating about 1 billion euros to achieve this. 

The government has also drawn up a special action plan for intensive public-private partnerships and investments for artificial intelligence. Nevertheless, several large companies indicate that the Netherlands misses the ‘boat‘ with artificial intelligence and are sounding the alarm. We are not moving fast enough! Time for action!

The journey for most companies, which started with the internet, has taken them through key stages of digitalization, such as core systems modernization and mobile tech integration, and has brought them to the intelligent automation stage. —

how do I start with AI & RPA?

Supplai understands that every company has and works on a core ERP system. The terms artificial intelligence (AI), artificial intelligence (AI), robotic process automation (RPA) and perhaps machine learning or deep learning (read more in our blog) can therefore be an elusive and difficult to understand technique. Because how do you connect this to each other? 

We believe that you should set up your organization step by step, process by process, to use artificial intelligence and thus improve your business processes.
