  • In a world where making decisions becomes more and more complicated, support is needed to be able to see clearly when making a choice. The tools that use Artificial Intelligence are capable of considering millions of factors. Vedrai SpA develops and implements AI-based solutions to support managers of SMEs in the decision-making process. Vedrai’s AI models monitor internal data (production data, accountability) and external factors (macroeconomics, weather, trends) to evaluate the impact of future business choices. To allow different industrial sectors to make their way through this mass of information, Vedrai SpA creates products for several business areas like retail, the food industry, and manufacturing. Vedrai’s AI-based solution supports CEOs and entrepreneurs in taking more precise decisions, reducing the cost of bad choices.
