Wed, 5 Jun 2024

Are you embracing the transformation that AI can bring to your business? From data-driven decisions, streamlined business processes and automated tasks, AI integrations can lead to optimised products and services and improved customer engagement. AI has a lot to offer for businesses – including SMEs with smaller budgets!

AI Automation

Currently, AI can be used to introduce automation in several different ways, including:

  • Chatbots – These are AI-powered programmes that can carry out conversations as a human would. They can handle simple queries on the phone, via social media or customer services, freeing up human operators for other tasks and offering 24/7 support.
  • Predictive analytics – Here, AI is being used to glean insights to predict future trends and customer behaviours so that decision-making and strategy can be improved.
  • Robotic Process Automation – This is simply the process of using software bots to bring automation to repetitive tasks that can be incredibly time consuming when done manually. That might be data entry, for example, or invoice processing.
  • Natural language processing – Here, AI will provide automated support for a range of tasks, from sentiment analysis to document classification and content creation, whether that is video content or written content.

What AI tools are currently available to small businesses?

  • Chat GPT-3 – This AI-powered chatbot can be used to engage in human conversations. In the real world that means it is useful everywhere, from customer service conversations to translation. It has been trained on huge data sets of real-world conversations, so its content is accurate, relevant, and grammatically correct.
  • Microsoft Co-Pilot – Created for efficiency, Microsoft Co-Pilot supports human workers by suggesting next steps and providing information in real time. It is designed to improve productivity and to reduce errors and the time that is taken up in searching for information.
  • Google Bard – If you’re looking to create content, whether that is product descriptions or headlines, Google Bard is designed to generate creative, coherent text.

These are just an example of the most popular options that are currently available to small businesses. There are many AI tools on the market that can provide support in other key areas, from cyber security to business intelligence. As the AI market continues to expand, ensure you experiment with the new options too to find the most effective AI solutions to suit your business needs.

AI – Use Caution

AI doesn’t come without its downfalls so use caution when implemented new AI solutions. Data bias, for example, is a significant problem, as if AI has been trained on biased data, then this will result in biased decisions and outcomes. It’s also important to ensure that any AI you opt for you understand completely.  A good understanding will help to avoid any security issues that can arise where it is not being properly implemented.

AI is a powerful tool and can transform any business so start to access it today and see where it can take your business.
