LAS VEGAS, Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Works Applications (WAP), the leading Human Capital Management (HCM) provider in Japan, today announced its new Enterprise Productivity System (EPS), AI Works, and plans for the United States (U.S.) market. The company will unveil AI Works at the 18th annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas from October 18 – 21 at Mandalay Bay, showcasing the new intelligent, cloud-based offering that has predictable costs and the unprecedented ability to reduce manual input and support operational efficiency.
In early 2016, AI Works will be available using a straightforward cost model that includes any implementation and configuration work required by customers. This allows customers to adapt AI Works to their specific business needs without additional financial burden. The costs associated with AI Works are completely predictable, and AI Works offers customers a much lower total cost of ownership compared with Workday, SAP, and Oracle whose solutions often require costly customization.
"It's our mission to provide an innovative and user-centric EPS that improves operational efficiencies, and we're excited to bring our industry-leading expertise from the Japanese market to the U.S. next year," said Masayuki Makino, CEO of Works Applications. "AI Works is a next-generation product that will provide the answer to the current stagnation in the development of innovative ERP offerings we have seen in the marketplace."
Designed to break away from the traditional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) model, AI Works offers unprecedented speed, artificial intelligence capabilities, integration of productivity tools, and a focus on productivity:
- Speed: AI Works offers a responsive speed usually found only in consumer applications. The system has a response time of approximately 100 milliseconds, enabling an unprecedented end user experience.
- Reduction of Manual Input: Using artificial intelligence, AI Works is able to make inferences from the past actions of users to immediately provide desired information based on user demands. This reduces time spent on data entry, enabling better allocation of employee resources and talents.
- Integration of Productivity Systems: AI Works has developed and integrated major productivity systems such as spreadsheets, email, and cloud storage. This allows end users to work in a collaborative environment that does not require moving to and from separate applications.
- Predictable Costs: Unlike other enterprise software companies, Works Applications does not charge for implementations, change requests, or any other unexpected fees.
