Do Onguard solutions use Artificial Intelligence (AI)?

Yes, Onguard uses AI, or artificial intelligence, in its solutions to manage entire processes. This involves tasks or assignments, such as classifying customers for risks. AI ensures that all financial information is up-to-date and real-time transparency, so that the finance professional can really focus on analysis and strategy. Work that has already been automated for the credit manager and other finance professionals in the past can be extended with AI. Consider, for example, segmenting people or groups according to certain risks. Rules are defined in the traditional way and transferred into business rules. With AI, the system can make segmentations itself based on data. Customers are divided on the basis of certain patterns. But assessing whether a customer is creditworthy can also be improved with AI. Previously, assessment rules were very black and white and credit managers had to assess the "gray area". However, AI can make new connections to reduce this gray area. So also on the basis of credit acceptance, AI is a valuable addition. Finally, with AI it is possible to predict certain events, such as which customer will have a delay in his payments.

Do Onguard solutions use Big data?

Yes, a large amount of data is collected within Onguard's solutions. Not only general customer data, but also data on, for example, payment behavior. With advanced analysis, it is possible for employees in the credit management department to predict whether a customer will be behind in payments or to what extent a customer will not pay at all.The analysis can advise the credit manager to provide a certain credit, in part or even not at all. Big data helps to predict a cash flow problem at an early stage and helps credit managers anticipate this. Thanks to big data it is possible to prevent fraud in advance. By releasing complex analysis on the data, characteristics or patterns can be identified that detect fraud. For example, a sudden deviation in the payment behavior of the debtor can be discovered.

Do Onguard solutions use Robotics Process Automation (RPA)?

Yes, Robotics Process Automation (RPA) also offers enormous opportunities for finance. It is aimed at performing tasks exactly like a human user, but faster and without errors. When deploying RPA, it is important that tasks are simple and repetitive. Consider, for example, invoicing where invoices from hundreds of customers are automatically entered and processed in the system, regardless of the file format. Onguard's MatchMaker automatically matches at least 80% of the invoices with incoming payments based on algorithms. Bank transaction processing is also automatically booked on the basis of recognition (for example, the customer number or description). Compiling reports from systems is also done via RPA.
