What is NDGAI’s Unique Differential Proposition

What is NDGAI’s Unique Differential Proposition?

NDGAI has solved the mobile workforce problem “mobileworkforceology” faced by organisations delivering services in multiple locations to client-centric requirements and who wish to provide excellent, cost effective and consistent continuity of service, for example in the home care, cleaning, security and facility management industries.

We do this better than any other system.

The mobile workforce problem, is this a real-world issue that needs to be resolved? If biology is the study of life, ‘mobileworkforceology’ is the study of how to deliver services across many locations, on time, while ensuring we are still person-centred and focused on quality.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

Investment of over £1.5m, including a government funded Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Nottingham University, enabled the research and development of OptifAI, NDGAI’s revolutionary, innovative product that solves the mobileworkforceology problem. Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) help businesses in the UK to innovate and grow by linking them with an academic or research organisation and a graduate. A KTP enables a business to bring in new skills and the latest academic thinking to deliver a specific, strategic innovation project.

OptifAI Research

This prodigious team collaboration conducted cutting edge, groundbreaking research on methodologies over an eight year period, tackling Workforce Scheduling and Routing Problems (WSRP).

Optimisation models and intelligent algorithms were developed to automatically generate schedules for a ‘mobile workforce’, i.e., workers that travel between locations to perform tasks. Homecare is an example of this type of scenario, where nurses, social workers, carers etc. visit patients in their own homes to provide health or care services. Research revealed the computational difficulty of this type of problem and laid the foundation for the models and algorithms that followed.

This joint expertise, experience and know-how ensures OptifAI delivers high-performance schedules that utilise staff more efficiently, error free and much faster than any other system, because AI never has a bad day.

Improving Business Performance

OptifAI makes coordinators’ lives simpler, more pleasant, and more productive, resulting in improved business performance, business growth and increased profitability.

Equally, OptifAI supports industry and organisational compliance, ensuring businesses provide their services with the highest levels of quality, safely and effectively, as well as evidencing a well-managed business with great leadership.

OptifAI is inexpensive to implement and run and saves organisations time and money meaning service providers can accomplish much more with fewer resources, enabling expansion in line with market growth and business objectives.
