5 ways AI can be your business’ competitive advantage

Technology has changed the game

Imagine doing your job without the Internet ...

  • Looking up numbers on your rolodex;
  • Picking up the phone or booking a meeting every time you need to ask someone a quick question;
  • Writing or typing out individual letters and mailing them out ...

The time and effort on repetitive task work we’ve saved is immense.

20 years from now, you’re going to feel the same way about AI.

AI will be the next big wave of technology essential to business function

AI is no longer a futuristic concept limited to major tech brands such as Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Netflix.

The reality is, forward-thinking organizations of all sizes, across all industries, are already using AI to build sustainable competitive advantages for their products and their people.

And the rate of AI adoption is growing rapidly -- according to a Harvard Business Review article, AI adoption has skyrocketed over the pandemic, with 86% of companies polled saying that AI is becoming a “mainstream technology” at their company.

Companies across the globe are already using AI to:

  • Accelerate revenue growth
  • Drive costs down
  • Reduce time spent on repetitive, data-driven tasks
  • Shorten the sales cycle
  • And more ...

One day, in the very near future, we’ll marvel at the kinds of problems we solved using spreadsheets, guesswork and gut instinct.

So the question becomes: How do you determine the current and future potential for AI to improve -- and eventually transform -- your business?

5 ways AI can be your business’ competitive advantage

1. Project

Accurately forecast demand, supply, and future offerings for competitive advantage by:

  • Designing better offerings
  • Using sales trends to guide planning
  • Using demand to achieve “just-in-time” inventory

2. Produce

Innovative processes to decrease necessary inputs and increase overall production by:

  • Maximizing the time systems run
  • Reducing fuel, labour, and equipment costs

  • Changing maintenance patterns
  • Reducing the number of high-risk clients or investments
