“For the liquor industry in particular, advances in Artificial Intelligence systems and Machine Learning algorithms can drive improvements in high-value areas such as trade spend and promotional planning, pricing, demand forecasting and inventory optimization, as well as multi-channel marketing and sales activities,” Michalewicz said. "The problem is that there has been so much technological development in the recent past, that most liquor industry participants are unaware of what’s now possible and the benefits that can be realised.”

Complexica Pty Ltd, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence software for supply & demand optimisation, announced today that it has achieved ISO27001 certification, recognising its commitment to providing customers with the highest level of information security management. Following an extensive audit process, the certification was issued by TQCSI International, an accredited, third party certification body providing auditing and certification of international management system standards with offices in more than in 30 countries.
When Complexica was launched 2014, the company's first two customers were in the food and beverage sector, with Artificial Intelligence being part of the founder's life for many decades before that. They are astounded to see the hype around AI today, and how many small companies have been created to capitalise on its rise. “In all our years of experience we found that to deliver AI-based technology successfully the first rule is to make sure AI is really the right technology to solve the problem you are trying to solve. AI is just one component of an overall solution.”
For businesses wanting an AI solution, Complexica looks at the number of customers they have, the number of products they sell, and the complexity around how they make and/or deliver those products to customers. Michalewicz explains it is the complexity of a business not its size that is key. “It is a well-suited solution when the complexity of a business’s operations begins to overpower the people working in it and they struggle to manage and stay on top of what needs to be done”.

“After a successful strategy engagement to develop an end-state digital vision and roadmap, and some further software specification work, we have now partnered with Complexica to deploy Click and Collect first in our Brisbane market, and then nationally. We have taken an approach of digitisation, followed by automation, followed by optimisation which we expect to enable success and minimise our change management risk”, said Damian Bourne, General Manager of Costa Group Farms & Logistics. “We have greatly enjoyed working with the team at Complexica and look forward to a successful deployment and national rollout”.
