NCS and NTT Develops Car Leasing Industry’s First AI-based Automatic Checking System to Process Complicated Car Maintenance Billing Slips
Nippon Car Solutions and NTT today announced the successful results of the technical verifications of their AI-based technology to check complicated billing slips of car maintenance shops in Japan. This technology is expected to be applied to the process to handle over one million billing slips issued per year, which are currently manually processed, through prompt and accurate checking, quick payment to car maintenance shops and the reduction in workload to check the bills. This technical verification includes data mining on past data and check logs, developing the know-how patterns of the staff and deep learning of AI for the frequent patterns of the bills to review how the technology is effective at a level that is equivalent to the staff.
NCS provides car maintenance services including car inspection/checkup/maintenance to corporate and individual customers of their car leasing services in Japan. Accordingly, over one million car maintenance bills are issued by partner car maintenance shops nationwide. With the diversity of vehicles, car maintenance bills becomes more complicated due to the difference of various maintenance service items, the working time required, the differing parts required for each vehicle and the service staff with specific high skills who are required to check the bills.
