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”.

SodaStream is taking a leap into artificial intelligence (AI) as it looks at changing how it goes to market in the coming few years. Complexica will shortly provide SodaStream staff with capabilities for dynamic call planning, guided-selling, route optimisation, CRM, and order processing, through the deployment of its Customer Opportunity Profiler (COP), Touchless CRM, and Order Management System (OMS), which are collectively powered by Complexica’s artificial intelligence (AI) engine, Larry the Digital Analyst. While the AI solution is being rolled out for sales opportunity management initially, it is hoped the project will grow in scope to include above and below the line activities in future.
General manager of SodaStream, Mark Fenton, said as someone who loves data, he is particularly excited to see what AI can do with its database once it is fully implemented. “We used a sales-based CRM called Pepperi previously, which is appropriate for what it does, but it’s basically data collection and doesn’t have any intelligence built-in. The use of AI interested me, particularly for making smart database decisions to improve efficiency and improved rates of sales,” he told CMO.
