Driving innovation in workforce management: Omnia Smart Technologies secures funding to transform fleet operations with AI.

Omnia Smart Technologies is thrilled to announce securing a crucial funding package of £49 661 from Innovate UK, through the Accelerating Trustworthy AI competition. This funding serves as a significant booster for our Workforce Analysis Artificial Intelligence (WAAI) Project, a ground-breaking initiative that aims to transform workforce management within the fleet management industry using AI technology.

By infusing AI directly into our flagship fleet management solution, AIOne, we intend to deliver superior and actionable insights, faster responses, improved adaptability, and cost-effective solutions. The AI-integrated feature will provide enhanced trust in AI-generated results and the flexibility to customise the solution to cater to specific industries or companies.

Our project unfolds in two phases. Initially, we will study the feasibility of embedding such a feature into our SaaS product. The subsequent phase will encompass data collection, development, model training, integration, deployment, and maintenance.

"We are immensely excited about this project," commented Roque Duarte, Operations Director of Omnia Smart Technologies. "The integration of AI into our solutions holds great promise to offer businesses faster, more accurate, and actionable insights. Our ground-breaking technology aims to redefine workforce management, and we believe that this new solution will significantly streamline business operations."

With Innovate UK's support, we can hasten the research phase and conduct an exhaustive feasibility study, propelling our project ahead and ensuring its success.

“UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) is pleased to announce the Accelerating trustworthy AI: Phase 1 feasibility study competition winners as part of the BridgeAI programme, funded through the UKRI Technology Missions, designed to exploit the UK’s global leadership in transformative technologies to help solve specific problems, whilst also helping cement that leading position.
