Machine Learning Vs Humans

AndyBot Vs Human Expertise

Your Tender Matching Resource. Technology-driven to find the right tenders quickly and accurately

We love humans (most days). But when it comes to doing business, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are powerful resources that can give your decision-making processes a massive upgrade.

What is Machine Learning anyway?

To paraphrase Wikipedia...

Machine learning (ML) is an application of artificial intelligence that provides systems with the ability to automatically learn from experience without being explicitly programmed. ML algorithms build a mathematical model based on sample data (known as “training data”) to look for patterns that allow it to make better future decisions based on the sample data provided.  ML enables analysis of massive amounts of data to deliver faster, more accurate results.

How can AndyBot help me win business?

We'll take a shot at this one...

It’s simple really.  Public sector tenders are published using CPV codes to classify and define the subject matter of their contracts. And there are thousands of them – so categorizing them in the first place is hard, even before reviewing the actual content of the tender.

Other tender alert services rely on humans or out-dated categorization methods to help Suppliers find tenders. These methods are expensive, inaccurate, and ultimately unscalable.

AndyBot (the TenderHood’s Machine Learning Tool) can find patterns in massive amounts of data – not just CPV codes, but the actual content of published tenders. Based on your Company Profile and the types of tenders you’re interested in, you can train AndyBot to identify tenders that are aligned with your business strategy and capabilities. We won’t just alert you to tenders, we’ll match them to you.

Benefits of Machine Learning

  • The more you train it, the smarter it gets
  • AndyBot isn’t motivated by money
  • More data is analyzed much faster
  • Results delivered are increasingly accurate
  • Search criteria are quickly and easily modifiable

Problems With Humans

  • To err is human
  • Humans leave (and their knowledge goes with ’em. Training new people takes time)
  • Humans are slower
  • Humans cost more

But We Still Love Humans!

The humans who bring you The TenderHood bring all of their knowledge and experience for a common purpose: to help you succeed in the Public Sector, and have some fun while you’re doing it.

Our culture and values put people first (though AndyBot holds a special place in our hearts).  That means we’ll do our best to provide you with the customer care and platform development expertise that you deserve.

Wherever you are in your journey, you’ll always be able to find an accessible human inhabiting The Tenderhood.
