Procurement System based on AI by Softengi

We leveraged Artificial Intelligence algorithms for the verification of users’ purchase requests and the determination of the most relevant recommendations for profitable positions in real-time. With the help of AI algorithms, it is possible to analyze larger amounts of data and offer the most relevant solutions for traditional problems. Smart interaction with suppliers and AI approval of this process minimizes the role of the buyer in the system, reducing the risk of a human-made error to a minimum.
