Demand forecasting solution that contributes to food waste reduction

We are developing a solution that uses AI to forecast demand for each region and store from big data such as weather, commuter fluctuations, demographics, and sales performance data. By utilizing AI and big data, it will be possible to make purchase and production plans based on more accurate demand forecasts. This will contribute to solving the problem of increased waste due to overproduction and food waste due to excessive purchases.

In addition, this demand forecasting solution is characterized by the ability to build an AI model and make highly accurate forecasts without specialized knowledge of data science, and is expected to be introduced in many companies.

Character recognition platform akaBot Vision reduces costs and environmental impact

Our group has developed an optical character recognition (OCR) platform, akaBot Vision, that supports the digitization of various documents. With AI technology, when you use akaBot Vision more frequently, the OCR function will improve and you can create highly accurate documents. akaBot Vision supports the digitization of various data entry processes, such as extracting contents from images, sorting text data, converting digital formats, etc. As a result, data entry costs in companies can be reduced by 60 to 80%. In addition, streamlining data entry and realizing cost reductions lead to reductions in the amount of paper and ink used, as well as the amount of paper waste, which is effective in reducing environmental impact.
