KEY DIFFERENTIATORS

Always Improving Flowcast’s ML platform allows risk professionals to gain the benefits of transfer learnings. It was designed to help rapidly analyze complex datasets to drive more accurate and auditable risk models. Our ML solution allows access to insights that are captured through many iterations and experience working with risk professionals around the world, uncovering intricacies of supplier and buyer behavioral dynamics. Explainable There are regulatory requirements to be able to explain, in human terms, why certain decisions were reached. The ability to explain the predictive output is equally important to the accuracy of the prediction itself. The rise of complex ML models makes explainability a key element in AI. Validated We provide analytics tools to make validation and monitoring seamless. We require our models to perform well in a real-world setting. This means that we carefully assess the out-of-sample and out-of-time sampling in our validation set and compare it against the in-time training set. It is important to have accurate assessments of future performance in production. API First You can invoke an API call in real-time to get predictive results integrated into existing ERP rules engines and workflow tools. The ML platform can be deployed in public or private cloud infrastructures.
