“Unlock Your AI Potential with Ai XPLR”

Ai XPLR enables companies to complete a process-level assessment in 30 days or less. It utilizes a comprehensive database of AI solutions and real-world use cases that help companies identify and maximize where AI can be most beneficial and cost-effective to implement. It includes more than 200 actionable use cases, with information on the tools, data and skills needed for implementation.

Generative AI (Gen AI), in combination with other AI technologies, will have a profound potential impact on selling, general and administrative (SG&A) costs and staffing, enabling reductions of up to 40% over the next five to seven years, according to recent research from The Hackett Group.

“As we stand on the leading edge of the AI revolution, it’s clear that the opportunities for innovation and growth are immense,” said Chris Brennan, The Hackett Group executive vice president. “Ai XPLR is not just a tool for improving efficiency – it’s a catalyst for reinventing how we do business. The Hackett Group is committed to helping clients explore the vast potential of AI and harness its power to drive transformative change. Through strategic investments in AI technologies and partnerships, we aim to unlock new possibilities that will not only benefit our clients but also shape a smarter, more efficient future.”

According to Paulo Dominguez, Global AI and Digital Enablement Practice leader, “For decades, The Hackett Group has been guiding companies in their business transformation efforts, helping them deliver greater business value, higher levels of operational excellence and an improved customer experience. Today, AI is a revolutionary part of the journey towards Digital World Class performance. But it can be very challenging for companies to properly assess their AI readiness, identify the low hanging fruit for their initial AI implementations and truly understand AI use cases and technology.”

“Our Ai XPLR readiness assessment is a game-changer that empowers and streamlines the digital transformation process,” Dominguez explained. “Using the in-depth proprietary performance data in our benchmarking database as a starting point, it allows organizations to quickly and easily evaluate their current AI readiness and pinpoint and implement specific process areas where AI can drive the greatest benefit. Then our detailed best practice flows and pre-built AI solutions can enhance a company’s comfort and proficiency with AI and help them make it an integral part of their strategy.”
