Visual Components Detector

Modernising procurement processes through ML-supported product identification

The right product is central to each procurement process in manufacturing and retail companies, from initial needs assessment to final use.

In every discrete step of this complex process, companies discover various optimisation potentials in order to realise their strategic goals, for example, by reducing warehouse logistics through shorter delivery times and integrating e-procurement solutions in the ordering process.

The challenge: fast delivery, expected quality, but wrong product

The cause of the problem is usually incorrect identification of the required product, due to wrong or missing identification options such as manufacturer-specific item numbers or labels. For a large number of product categories, however, the provision of identification options by the manufacturer is not practical, especially for very varied products. The correct specification of the required product variety is therefore essential for determining requirements.

Our solution:Visual Components Detector (VCD)

The Visual Components Detector (VCD) enables the clear detection of products using digital image capturing and image classification algorithms based on machine learning. Implemented as a web service, the Visual Components Detector (VCD) can be flexibly integrated into mobile, web or desktop apps.

After being integrated into the procurement process, the right product can be determined quickly and reliably so as to be able to significantly reduce incorrect orders and replacement deliveries. This way, considerable cost and time-saving effects can be achieved on the procurement side as well as on the sales side.

It is a multi-tenant solution hosted in Azure that enables a user to train and deploy multiple models that recognize a specific subset of products (objects). Realized as a web service, the Visual Components Detector (VCD) can be flexibly integrated into mobile, web or desktop apps.

Integrated into the procurement process, the right product is determined quickly and reliably, so that incorrect orders and replacement deliveries can be significantly reduced.
