SAINT LOUIS (Aug. 23, 2023) – Perficient, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRFT) (“Perficient”), the leading global digital consultancy transforming the world’s largest enterprises and biggest brands, announced new and expanded generative AI initiatives – including the launch of the Perficient Generative AI Innovation Group – to help clients accelerate their business and outpace the competition.
With the proliferation of generative AI disrupting every industry, businesses need to assess and adopt generative AI applications as a key component of their technology portfolio if they want to remain competitive.
“Companies that invest in AI now are laying the foundation to combine AI with other emerging technologies to create scalable and innovative opportunities,” said Santhosh Nair, vice president, Perficient. “For years, our team of strategists has helped clients implement and adopt dynamic AI solutions to transform their businesses. We’re committed to continually innovating with generative AI on behalf of our clients, communities, and colleagues.”
Perficient’s AI initiatives include a range of capabilities and service offerings that will further enable clients to harness the power of AI, enhance Perficient’s AI expertise, foster a workplace culture of innovation, and train the next generation of AI leaders:
- Perficient recently launched a global Generative AI Innovation Group (IG), comprised of hundreds of Perficient strategists, designers, and developers from around the world with an interest and expertise in new technologies to discuss applications and opportunities for the market. The Generative AI IG drives innovation, connection, and community with Perficient’s clients, colleagues and partners, about the emergence of generative AI tools and capabilities, and the impact these technologies will have on businesses. The group will identify and develop market offerings, internal use cases and applications, and routinely host events that educate, enable, and engage colleagues about the groundbreaking technology and its implications for transforming enterprise operations.
- Perficient’s CX AI Jumpstart is a new offering that is helping clients quickly define how AI can make the biggest impact on their business by using a cross-functional approach. Built on Perficient’s accelerated modeling process, CX AI focuses on developing an interactive model that demonstrates how organizations can leverage machine learning, natural language processing, conversational AI, generative AI, and cognitive computing to jump-start AI adoption.
- Perficient recently partnered with Writer, the only full stack generative AI platform, to help clients quickly embed generative AI into any business process and make it available everywhere people work. In partnership with Writer, Perficient enables clients to leverage Writer-built large language models (LLMs) and an application layer of prebuilt and customizable templates to deliver high-quality outputs and insights while ensuring compliant, accurate, inclusive, and on-brand AI guardrails.
