About the role

AI is surrounded by misconception and hype. Delivering AI solutions is fraught with complexity, uncertainty and risk. There is a shortage of experts who can support the understanding and delivery of these technologies.

We believe businesses can fundamentally better serve their customers and shareholders with experiences powered by the latest AI technologies.

We create business value and innovation which drives deeper customer relationships through tech agnostic thought leadership & world class delivery of AI technologies.

What?

We do this by providing a number of services depending on where our clients are on their AI journey.

  • Packaged consulting services: We have designed a range of services that take us from an unclear or exploratory starting point to understanding AI technologies and the business suitability for our clients.
  • We have a number of partners that allows us to bring together technologies that have never been combined before, so rather than using a single tool to solve part of the problem, we are the specialists and integrators that tackle challenges holistically.
  • A large team of experts that can deliver end to end solutions: With consulting and development capabilities in a range of AI technologies and specialist knowledge of some of the leading tools, we are best placed to support AI initiatives.
  • We use a service design based approach in our hearts: We really mean it when we say the customer is at the centre of our solutions and we build that into new technologies.
