How can AI (Artificial Intelligence) technology help your business or department to transform for the future? Where might it be a game-changer, and what will the future look like with AI working alongside you?
Our AI Technology Matchmaker Service is designed to bring a range of different AI vendors to present to you and showcase how they can take your business into the future.
We interview you, write up a vendor briefing document, and then poll the AI vendor community to find the very best technology providers that fit your need. Then you and your team can sit back and listen to their ideas during a series of AI matchmaker sessions.

Frequent Asked Questions
What technology areas do you cover with the AI Technology Matchmaker?
We cover the full software and services marketplace. As a Technology Matchmaker, Viewpoint Analysis simply connects customers with a need, to those AI technology providers that can deliver the solution to the need. Our job is to understand what the business really needs, and then bring the right vendors to the table to be able to offer suitable solutions.
As such, we provide the AI Technology Matchmaker Service to any line of business. From HR to Finance and from Marketing to Operations. We also perform this service for the CEO and his/her executive leadership team, or the Board of Directors.
How can Viewpoint Analysis help us with our AI Project?
The AI Technology Matchmaker introduces technology vendors that can help with particular issues. Our job is to understand the marketplace - so that when our customer needs those new technology ideas, we can quickly bring the right technology vendors to the table.
If our clients know what they need, we run market assessments (our Technology Matchmaker) and AI RFPs (through our Rapid RFP service) to quickly find the right AI technology to meet their needs.
Do you only work with certain software vendors?
No, we are not tied to any software vendor and do not receive any compensation for introducing our clients to them or bringing them into an AI selection process. We only work on behalf of our clients. Our service is built to help the business teams to find and select new technology and therefore we will go to whichever vendor can offer the right service to our client. Furthermore, we only act as a matchmaker - meaning that we bring the different vendor options, but ultimately it is the customer team and their leadership that make the vendor selection.
How long does a Vendor Selection Process take to complete?
We strongly believe that a software selection process should be quick and easy - both for the customer team and also for the software vendor and systems integrator (if applicable). There is a business requirement that is driving the selection process, and we want to make sure that our clients get on to implementing the AI tech rather than running a vendor selection process. Our Rapid RFP is designed to quickly find and then select the right AI technology vendor for the customer - we expect the process to be completed in a few weeks (an average of 6 to 7 if we go from a standing start).
Can you run an AI RFP process for us?
Yes we can run an AI RFP but our vendor selection process is not an old-school digital transformation RFP process, it is super-quick and super easy to run. We want the process to be simple for the buying team and simple for the technology vendors. We want to drive the AI software selection decision in the quickest possible time - whilst getting the right solution. We also want to build a partnership between the IT vendor and the business team. So yes, our Rapid RFP.
