US-based IT services company, UST, has signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with SAP. The agreement enables UST to integrate SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) into its Cogniphi AI Vision platform, which will be subsequently marketed as ‘UST Sentry Vision AI’.
UST Sentry Vision AI is a cutting-edge, vision-based artificial intelligence solution that can be applied to build predictable patterns that help reduce operational wastage, monitor performance, identify revenue leakage and automate complex business processes.
With UST Sentry Vision AI, businesses can leverage digital vision data and video analytics to help build a competitive edge. Integrated with SAP Business Technology Platform and SAP Analytics Cloud, UST’s AI-based vision platform can accelerate the intelligent digital enterprise, the company said in a statement.
“UST Sentry Vision AI will enable them to embrace the Industry 4.0 movement and make their factories smarter and transform retail into a touch-free experience,” Chris Botha, Senior Vice President, SAP Practice, UST, said.
“This partnership, which allows us to integrate SAP BTP into our Cogniphi AI Vision platform (marketed as UST Sentry Vision AI), will strengthen the offering and provide the power of vision intelligence to companies in various sectors like manufacturing, retail, and healthcare, among others,” informed Rohith Raveendranath, founder of Cogniphi Technologies, a UST portfolio company.
Leveraging its partnership with SAP, UST, with its strong presence in India, is working to bring about the business transformation customers need to achieve greater speed, agility, and integration.
Integrating with SAP BTP, UST Sentry Vision AI will help businesses enable faster and more accurate yield reporting in real-time, provide flexibility to the operations team to use a low-skilled workforce and drive accurate inventory reporting and compliance to targets. It will also measure and track how customers interact with the aisle in a showroom and automate the replenishment of store shelf space, the company said.
