Hello readers, hope you all are doing good, today the topic is attention-worthy. Well, an entrepreneur always wants to grow their business and at the same time look to cut down the expenses without compromising the quality of their business operations.
There was a time when getting the above statement to practicality was nearly impossible but not today, we live in the age of disruption. And When it comes to business operations, artificial intelligence has enormous potential. Businesses across the globe are adopting it,
Moreover, in a few years, it will be nearly impossible to compete with businesses that use artificial intelligence capabilities in their business operations. So this article points towards the applicability of AI in 4 areas/departments of business irrespective of the kind of industry.
1. Personalized Customer Experience
Everyone loves to be served the way they like. That’s what we call “personalized experience” and in today’s business world along with price and product, personalized customer experience is what differentiates your brand from the rest.
Here custom artificial intelligence software can do miracles for the companies as AI can be put to use in the places where the customer “interacts with the product or service” for an ex- website, social media, e-commerce platform, purchase frequency, and engagement after-sales.
As a result, this intelligent software autonomously collects data & analyzes it which provides insight into consumer behavior.
– are they eager to buy more?
– from what platform do the majority of people buy your service?
– What changed their purchase quantity?
– are they shifting towards your key competitor. Why?
Armed with this information a business has unprecedented insight into what their consumer wants or the market trend shift, this gives the opportunity to the marketing team to change its perception to better understand and provide what customers really want “personalized experience”.
2. Automating Business Process
In businesses, there are several tasks that a machine can do at a better efficiency & effectiveness and at a lower cost whether you talk about manufacturing, accountability, working duration, management, etc.
Now is not the time to rely on the human workforce for every business operation, what AI is capable of is handling tasks that are repetitive, enhancing human capabilities. The co-operations of humans with technology will go a long way, as AI is still very much a developing technology that still requires substantial human input to sustain.
Artificial intelligence with proper applicability can provide various benefits to business operations:
1. Human Error Elimination- Errors are based on skills, rules, lack of experience, mood inconsistencies, false conclusions, etc. the AI can minimize the workload on employees when it comes to processing data, which indirectly helps in human productivity.
AI software is being used to collect, analyze, and present the relevant information from the big database, directly to workers So it simplifies and speeds up the process of decision making and can aid human error to certain extinction.
2. Constant Real-Time Assistance- live customer support will lose traffic or might just be replaced by the text and voice enabled AI technology- chatbots, because they can deal with more people than customer support in real-time, plus it saves a whole lot of money, time and management for the firms.
In addition, AI bots with consistent data updates on consumer conversations can easily simulate different communication scenarios and immediately provide people with top-quality solutions.
3.Data Security Increase- every business knows that cybersecurity breaches are unaffordable, and Now the AI software is capable enough to tackle fraud even before it comes to notice. filtering out potentially malicious links or spam and phishing emails before they could ever be viewed.
The application cases of AI in data protection usually include:
–voice or face recognition
–data encryption and backup
– anti-malware and firewall functions, etc.
3. Simulation and Prediction Analytics
These two are TECHNOLOGICAL MODELS which provide situational outcomes on the basis of data input. Where prediction analytics provide insights into the “future of a situation”. while simulation models provide the “behavior outcome of a situation”.
Prediction Analytics- What this analytic does is pick up historical data and make forecasts on the basis of past events relating to a system of a process with statistical algorithms and machine learning techniques that produce probabilities and predictions for systems in the future.
Furthermore, this analytics accuracy is completely based on “collected data”. A human can also predict on the basis of data, but the involvement of AI begins with complex & large data sets.
Continuing that, technological advancement in data storage and processing reduced the costs and increases quick access to complex analytics.
Here machine learning provides decision trees on the basis of large historical and complex data, devices activity data, constant feedback, or even simulation models to strongly understand and help decision making for business representatives easy in complex situations.
Some Examples where predictive analytics could help for better-
- To understand upcoming market trends/behavior changes quickly.
- Helps in prioritizing sales leads.
- To run investment analysis on future projects.
- To counter possible upcoming threats.
- helps in the decision making process & minimize risk in every aspect of a business.
Simulation model- The metaverse & gaming are the biggest examples of simulation. isn’t it? and when it comes to business model uses, for now, it always goes along with prediction analytics. Simulation models are even more simplified as they visualize the whole system in 2d/3d and it becomes easier to predict the behavior around that system.
Furthermore, In business, simulation is still a newer concept as it was mostly used for “Deep reinforcement learning” where AI is provided with strategies input through codes to play games on its own in the virtual environment and learn from its own mistakes.
However, the uses of AI are now moving from gaming challenges towards business-oriented objectives. And the benefit seems to be-
- Virtual experiments with simulation models are less expensive and take less time than experiments with real assets.(marketing campaigns)
- A simulation model can capture many more details which makes critical skill development easier -Critical thinking, teamwork and other soft skills all improve when learners take part in a well-designed business simulation.
- Real-estate is the industry which has been using simulation models for infrastructure, developments and now even small businesses can use it to plan out their inventories, equipment, franchise, offices, retail shops & to develop better business operations.
4. Artificial Intelligence for Sales and Marketing
From providing a personalized experience to automating various processes and improving the predictive analysis on the basis of AI data reading, AI generates all required information on how to make products and offers personalized. Which indirectly generates MORE SALES.
AI is indirectly improving sales figures, and that is not where it stopped. Some applicability of AI separately helps sales & marketing teams to enhance their work and provide better conversions.
1.lead prioritization salesforce- Artificial intelligence can analyze large datasets like social media engagement, salesperson’s customer interaction history, searches performed on your site, or if they got to your site via an email click-through.
And then prioritize the opportunities or leads in the pipeline according to their chances of closing successfully. In the task of decision making the level of standard and logic AI brings is unmatched. It utilizes time and increases the conversion rates.
2.Automating Marketing activities- it accounts for every practice which is performed online to get more traffic to your business.
- INBOUND MARKETING EFFORTS– content creation like website blogs demands SEO to rank on google here the Use tools like Ahrefs and SEMrush to identify relevant high volume keywords & content opportunities in your niche and build out content to attract your ideal customers to your site.
- OUTBOUND MARKETING EFFORTS– search on the right audience, with tools like leadiro You’ll have the ability to instantly identify companies who are a great fit for your services, so you can market where it really sells.
Further, tools like Mailshake can send personalized emails in bulk and can schedule follow-ups on the basis of clicks, opens, replies, etc. terminating a lot of repetitive work.
Businesses across the globe are changing the way they operate, 75% of executives say that AI will allow them to use their employee skills in non-repetitive and strategical parts which eventually help build their business better. Artificial intelligence in business operations promises to increase their return on investment, client satisfaction, brand loyalty, and a lot more.
