AI Guides

Advisors and Consultants for Businesses looking to tap into the power and potential of AI.

At AI Guides, we know your business needs to be an innovative leader in your industry. In order to do that, you have to ensure the successful use of Artificial Intelligence in your business.

It’s been said that by 2030 there will be two types of businesses: those that use AI and those that are bankrupt. The problem is, 85% of AI projects fail to fulfill their promises because businesses are sold the wrong solutions. This leaves you feeling doubtful about any advice you might receive. We believe you deserve vendor-agnostic guidance that makes sure you’re matched to the right solutions for your environment.

We know how hard it is to find unbiased guidance for artificial intelligence. That’s why we protect your interests as your independent guide through this new frontier. We make sure you know what needs to happen and who’s qualified to help you so your journey begins with a clear path to success.

We bring both business leadership experience and technical expertise in AI to the table. This allows us to make sure you find the right solutions by serving as translators between your business goals and the technical requirements needed to fulfill them. Once your solutions are identified, we have access to a vast network of AI professionals and can find the right, trustworthy talent for any situation.

Here's how we work

1/ Initial Assessment – First, we find out whether your business has the potential for a successful AI project that supports your goals. (If it doesn’t, we’ll tell you!)

2/ Discovery Report – We conduct exhaustive interviews and analysis in order to define the objectives you need to meet to succeed.

3/ Solutions Report – Finally, you get a detailed roadmap for reaching those objectives, and we point you to the right vendors for your project.

Along the way we promise you our determination and honesty. If there’s a match for you, we’ll find it. If there isn’t, we’ll tell you why.

So, Schedule a Consultation today. In the meantime, you can download our free resource The 7 Essential Questions that Must Be Asked Before Using Artificial Intelligence.

You can avoid falling behind in the race to deploy AI. Instead, you can mitigate the risks of your investment and tap into the power and potential of artificial intelligence to transform your business into a leading force in your industry.
