To bridge this gap, Comfort Monster turned to Atlantic BT, leveraging our expertise in AI consulting, to explore how AI could best be integrated into their existing processes effectively and efficiently.

The solution.

Our AI Discovery began with individual consultations with each department head. We asked them about the specific workflows of each department, their duration, and the number of personnel involved. Leveraging the information gathered from these interviews, we identified the workflows with the most potential for AI integration. Following this, we conducted contextual inquiries for each of the workflows and mapped them out into detailed experience maps. The maps were instrumental in highlighting areas for improvement, enabling us to formulate customized AI recommendations tailored to enhance efficiency and effectiveness across the board. 

The end result.

We recommended a suite of AI strategies and tools to enhance the operational efficiency of Comfort Monster. Among these, field scheduling optimization stands out as a particularly impactful AI application from our Practical AI Roadmap Process. This approach smartly matches technicians with jobs, minimizing travel times and maximizing job completion rates. Additionally, the use of optical character recognition technology can quickly capture serial numbers, makes, and models, thereby reducing the time technicians spend on-site and diminishing the need for follow-up audits by the customer service team. The adoption of AI in Comfort Monster’s processes will significantly streamline operations, reduce time spent on tasks, and improve overall service efficiency at Comfort Monster.
