The Top 5 Ways AI Can Improve Your Business

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a buzzword for a few years now, but is the hype truly warranted? The answer is a definitive YES. AI is redefining technology as we know it. According to a recent CSIRO report, 68% of Australian businesses have already implemented AI technologies, and a further 23% plan to do so in the next 12 months.  

Why is AI garnering such widespread adoption?

Simply put, its impact on businesses is profound. When it comes to the rapidly evolving business landscape, staying ahead of the curve is crucial for success, and AI is an accessible and incredibly powerful tool that can help you do just that. AI has the potential to transform how your business operates, from streamlining workflows to enhancing customer experiences. The list of benefits gained by implementing AI is endless. This article delves into what we consider to be the top 5 ways AI can revolutionise your business. 

AI-powered automation

Businesses are constantly looking for ways to streamline their operations and reduce manual work. AI-powered automation is like having a tireless workforce that excels at handling repetitive tasks. By automating processes such as data entry, scheduling, and report generation, your human resources can focus on high-value, strategic and creative activities that drive innovation and growth. This not only boosts productivity but also reduces the risk of errors, leading to more efficient operations. 


Studies show that AI and Machine Learning automation have boosted operational efficiency by an average of 40% across sectors, with a predicted $4.4 trillion in business value by 2025. If you aren’t looking at how AI can automate some of your business processes, you risk falling behind your competition.

Data Analysis 

Data is the lifeblood of modern business, but making sense of vast amounts of data can be overwhelming. AI algorithms excel at analysing large volumes of data at lightning speed, uncovering patterns, trends, and correlations that human analysts might miss. These insights empower informed decision-making and identify growth opportunities, which can fuel strategic initiatives and help businesses stay agile in a rapidly changing market. 44% of executives acknowledge AI’s pivotal role in providing and analysing data for better decision-making, propelling businesses towards strategic growth. 

Personalisation 

Today's customers expect personalised experiences tailored to their preferences, whether it’s in product recommendations, marketing messages or customer support. AI enables hyper-personalisation by analysing customer data, behaviour, and feedback. By providing personalised experiences, businesses can enhance customer satisfaction, build brand loyalty, and drive repeat business and revenue growth. In fact, a recent study reports that Australian consumers spend an average of 19% more on brands that personalise the customer experience, a number you don’t want to ignore! 

Predictive Maintenance 

For businesses reliant on equipment or machinery, unplanned downtime due to maintenance issues can be costly and disruptive. AI-driven predictive maintenance uses machine learning models to monitor equipment health, detect anomalies, and predict potential failures before they occur. By proactively addressing maintenance needs, you can minimise downtime, reduce repair costs, optimise performance, and prolong the lifespan of critical assets. 


Customer Service 

Delivering exceptional customer service is a non-negotiable in today’s customer-centric landscape, and 40% of businesses say that improved customer service is their top motivator for implementing AI.  AI-powered chatbots and virtual assistants are revolutionising customer service by providing instant, personalised support around the clock. These intelligent systems can handle routine inquiries, troubleshoot issues, and even assist with product recommendations. By delivering seamless and efficient customer experiences, AI elevates customer satisfaction and strengthens brand loyalty. 


The Power of AI

Artificial Intelligence may seem like the new kid on the block, but for Solentive, the use of AI in projects is nothing new. One such project was the development of a mobile app for Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) which used the power of AI to tackle time-critical processes and increase overall productivity. MLA wanted to streamline their existing process of identifying harmful parasites in livestock; which involved collecting samples and distributing them for manual testing, a lengthy and inefficient process. To address this, MLA embarked on a transformative journey by developing a predictive smartphone app powered by Artificial Intelligence. Solentive’s AI experts devised a comprehensive 3-stage plan, leveraging the capabilities of AI through computer vision and Machine Learning. This plan included creating parasite images, studying machine learning algorithms, training neural networks, and deploying the technology.

The outcomes were significant, as the developed app empowered farmers to identify and treat parasites in real-time, directly in the field, saving them time and increasing productivity massively. By utilising Machine Learning, the app could detect the number and type of parasites from a simple photograph, eliminating the need for sample collection. This innovative solution identified future possibilities for further technological advancements for MLA. 


Integrating AI into your business strategy opens up a world of possibilities. From automating workflows to analysing data, personalising experiences, optimising operations, and enhancing customer service, AI empowers businesses to thrive in a competitive landscape. Embracing AI-driven innovation is not just a choice but a strategic imperative for unlocking growth, efficiency, and success.
