Implementing artificial intelligence helps in forecasting the product demand, which can be helpful for the manufacturers to produce as per need. It helps in saving loss of energy, resources, and money.
The data of previous or historic sales cycles, product reviews, and competitive products in the market, website visits, help Artificial Intelligence to predict the market demand. The huge paperwork and manual involvement in the documentation and storage of information are avoidable by digitization. The artificial intelligence algorithm can store the database for later utilization.
One of the impressive applications of artificial intelligence is the chatbot. It helps in answering the queries of the customers. All the frequently asked questions that customers asked about their orders, delivery, and tracking can be answered by the information stored, that contains the answers to the commonly asked question. Natural language processing is applied to bots, which gives a faster response and keeps customers satisfied.
Digitization is also transforming the Reverse Logistics Supply Chain. It helps in reselling returned items that would otherwise be wasted. Organizations are searching for ways to use innovative ways to help consumer returns. Advanced data platforms are revolutionizing the Reverse Logistics Industry.
