Nigel Gittins, founder of Webroster Ltd, today sold the company after 20-years in the making, to concentrate on his new venture – NDG Artificial Intelligence Limited (NDGAI).
NDGAI specialises in cloud-based industry pioneering SaaS (software as a service) technology that adds significant value to scheduling software, by managing resources intelligently.
The company’s vision is to be the greatest innovator of artificially intelligent algorithms focused on improving workforce scheduling anywhere in the world.
Nigel is building on his achievements at Webroster, which he founded in 2002, after experiencing first hand, through his parent’s care agency, the difficulties the care industry faced when scheduling field-based workers, particularly with a growing workforce and client base.
Over the last 20 years, Nigel and his team have focused their skills on solving the issues home care providers face. During this time Webroster has grown and currently has more than 330 customers across the UK.
Part of that growth included completing a two-year Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with the University of Nottingham, where the team focused on improving field-based workforce utilisation. This is when the product OptifAI was born.
OptifAI, an innovative artificially intelligent algorithm that not only automates the scheduling process but creates more efficient solutions. It instantly increases performance and profitability, matches field-based workers to client-centric timeframes, skills and equipment requirements, enabling organisations to determine and deliver the highest standard of field services to their clients anywhere in the world.
Nigel Gittins, NDGAI CEO and Webroster founder, said: “Our mission is to deliver industry pioneering technologies to enhance our partner’s software proposition.
“I believe our partners deserve unparalleled technologies to intensify their software offering and that our users deserve reliable, fast and efficient software to empower them to determine and deliver the highest standard of field services to their clients.
“At NDGAI we focus on what matters to our users and facilitate their business needs. Whether that’s delivering quality or consistent service, or reducing operational costs and maximising profits, or a balanced approach, we create solutions to meet their business objectives.
“At NDGAI we plan to achieve great things. The only way to achieve great things is with great people. This is why I hand-picked exceptional people with the same vision and values as me to guarantee NDGAI would achieve extraordinary things.
“OptifAI is a game-changer, and it is just the beginning of this new chapter. Watch this space. Great things are going to happen.”
