Merging AI with operational knowhow from 1,200 group companies
AI WORKS offers intuitive convenience to its users by combining machine learning with operational knowhow accumulated through WAP’s entire customer base. Citing from "feature engineering” concept, machine learning algorithms needs domain knowledge, in this case human knowledge of the data to make it work. Because of this, knowledge and experience in both technology and business operations are required when machine learning is applied in enterprise systems. AI WORKS was made possible because WAP could combine its customers’ massive operational log data and cutting edge cloud focused technologies with its deep operational knowhow that serves as the backbone for the product feature engineering.
Achieve the next level of business with AI WORKS – create time for innovative work
Let AI Do the Work
AI WORKS frees its users from mundane repetitive tasks such as inputting. Based on massive operational log data accumulated daily, AI WORKS draws intelligent connections and predicts the next operation. Filling in invoice slips or creating analysis reports can be done with just a single click.
Make Smarter Business Decisions
AI WORKS helps users making business decisions faster and smarter. It becomes more intuitive as it learns more about the kind of information that would help users’ decision making. For example, it can propose budget plan based on past budgetary results, talent cost, employment plans, etc. Rather than spending hours or even weeks on gathering data, users can focus on purely making decisions.
A Fully Integrated Business Solution
AI WORKS offers all the necessary business tools in one place to connect people, material, and capital. It is the first enterprise software suite with built-in productivity tools such as spreadsheets, scheduler, email, chat, and drive. Users will never have to switch between systems to get their job done.
