Noodle AI: When Enterprise met AI

Noodle.ai’s Enterprise AI is augmenting Enterprise software to become the standard technology for high value, high complex, and high volume decisions.”

Complex supply chain systems require innovative planning but in most companies, they fail to do just that because their sales and operations team planning lack insight even though they have the information. The people who make the plans find a grey area when there's a conflict between the team and lay out a suboptimal plan without properly analyzing all the factors and risks that are involved. Although there are forecasts involved, most of them are based on backward-looking data and don't consider several external factors like the weather, customer reviews and other important data.

But making complex decisions isn’t so hard for an AI especially when it is designed by people who are well-versed in doing that, Noodle.ai is the world’s most advanced end-to-end platform for enterprise artificial intelligence. The design of Noodle.ai products is based on a set of interconnected machine learning algorithms for use to power applications and a data platform for manufacturing and supply chain.
