Whitespace is a tech-based IT consulting service that helps businesses of all sizes develop their business in a customer-centric manner to achieve their growth goals.
Regarding their approach to Innovation scouting, before Novable they used traditional scouting services and tools, with little to no outsourcing to dedicated scouting platforms. For this reason, the search represented a slow and tedious process.
Therefore, they decided to give Novable a try. Being a dedicated scouting platform, they were able to work with a higher level of accuracy and relevance, finally receiving better results and saving quality time.
Generate a qualitative and comprehensive list of potential innovation providers for a governmental agency in the UK regarding small object detection.
Hybrid AI-Human approach: Using NLP to understand Whitespace’s needs starting from detailed briefing from them, AI did the heavy lifting by retrieving relevant Companies. On the other end of the spectrum, the Novable Agents sifted through the output for quality control and delivered a tailor-made “Golden Basket’ (list of Companies). The Novable Agents helped adjust the process according to the customer’s evolving search criteria. Results matched the increasing level of details requested throughout the Campaign.
Semantic search: Direct translation of Whitespace requests into relevant results for each chosen topic.
Iterative process until happiness: Following an iterative approach, punctuated with recurrent meetings to discuss the ongoing scouting Campaign, the client was followed every step of the way for the whole duration of the project. Receiving regular feedback from the client, the Novable Agents refocused the current briefing to match the new conditions after each iteration, in order to improve the accuracy of the search and thus improve the relevance as time elapsed.
What the process looked like:
Thanks to Novable, Whitespace found 75 unique Companies on the small object detection campaign, and took Whitespace only 2 hours and a half to review them. 20 were contacted by them, with a total time spent on the Novable tool of 8h – 12h or 1 man-day (1-2h/week for 8 weeks).
Some unexpected bonuses include:
The adaptation of their Campaign and necessities as the project unfolded – great service flexibility.
