Overview: Improved Manufacturing with AIToday’s manufacturers face numerous challenges, including skilled worker shortages, high production costs, and compliance concerns. Fortunately, artificial intelligence (AI) technology can address many of these concerns. According to a McKinsey study, by 2030, AI is expected to create $13 trillion of realized value for the world’s economy. Within manufacturing specifically, companies have added AI solutions to streamline their core production processes.
8base: Simplifying Application BuildingLow-code development platforms are an increasingly popular option for web and mobile app developers. According to Forbes , some of the many benefits of this tech include lower cost and maintenance burden, increased productivity across teams, quicker innovation and development, and rapid prototyping. Low-code development also makes it easier for entrepreneurs to test new ideas, products, and services. As a result, the value of the global low-code development platforms market is expected to reach $94.8 billion globally by 2028 .
Certa: Optimizing Third-Party Lifecycle WorkflowsThird-party vendors (suppliers, partners, customers, etc.) are crucial to a company’s growth and success. Yet, o nboarding these vendors is among the most time-consuming, opaque, and manual processes within an enterprise. Companies face a wide spectrum of risks across several domains (legal, privacy, procurement, compliance, etc.) and need to coordinate with multiple stakeholder groups to ensure that they’re sufficiently mitigating each one. Growing data security concerns, privacy regulations, evolving sanctions , and a heightened emphasis on ESG only add further complexity and burden to the overall process. As a result of these bottlenecks, onboarding new vendors can take mid to large enterprises over 90 days .
Zendar: High-Resolution Automotive RadarWhile radar has historically been associated with aviation, the technology has been utilized by automotive manufacturers since the late ‘90s in a number of safety features. Radar sensors are used for convenience features, such as adaptive cruise control; and in critical safety systems, including collision avoidance and emergency braking systems. Beyond these applications in conventional passenger vehicles, radar development has grown dramatically with the advent of commercially available autonomous vehicles and autopilot-like systems.
Enboarder: Elevating the Employee ExperienceEmployee turnover is crippling many organizations. In 2021, the voluntary attrition rate hit 67% , the highest of the decade. Burnout, ignored communication, and lack of engagement result in employees looking for new positions or simply abandoning the workforce altogether.
