Wyz is aware of software installations at your peer businesses and makes it easy for you to understand the fit of a software product for your requirement. Wyz not only avoids technical and marketing jargon, but also declutters your experience of exploring the software landscape.

Features of Wyz:

Wyz is context-aware:

Wyz can be invoked on any page and Wyz understands the page context and topics and uses that while determining the consideration list of software products. Wyz is now active on the home page, software category pages, and software product pages on Cuspera.com. Wyz looks like an AI bot on these pages.

Wyz knows the page you are reading and can help you find software products relevant to the business problem being discussed on that page.

Alternatively, you can start exploring with business problem related keywords and get recommendations for products that are best equipped to help you solve the problem.

Wyz being context aware

Wyz is personalized

Software products are specialized for specific use-cases in particular industry segments, so knowing that is absolutely important for Wyz to recommend the right-fit product for you.

Wyz is powered by data and intelligence from Cuspera platform

The Cuspera engine crawls the Web to identify how products have been used in various industry use-cases to recommend the right-fit software for you. Cuspera uses NLP such as topic detection, sentiment analysis, etc., and AI algorithms based on semi-supervised learning to identify topics, score and match them with products.

Wyz ensures requirement completeness

All our recommendations are backed by peer experiences and expert recommendations, which you can read and verify. Wyz will actively remind you to choose requirements that you might have missed, which your peers and experts found important, before recommending software products.

How do you know when Wyz has found the right-fit?

Wyz shows at the top of the conversational screen whether it has a sense of how good the recommendation is for you. Red means poor-fit, yellow and amber means the recommendation is getting warmer and the greener the bar better is the fit.  Right-Fit is based on:

  1. Wyz’s understanding of your business problem. Remember Wyz is asking you questions to zero in on your problem, more the questions your answer more confident Wyz is about the recommendations
  2. Wyz’s understanding of your business context. If it knows who you are: your company, Industry, etc., it is more confident about the recommendations.
  3. It also depends on what software products your peers and expert have chosen in a related problem space. The more the peer and expert recommendations we have better is Wyz’s confidence in the recommendations.

Reports generated by Wyz

Wyz still generates a nice report that you previously could generate on cuspera.com. You can generate report after shortlisting 3 software products that Wyz recommends as right-fit. You can also share this report with your team and get feedback on your requirements and Wyz’s recommendations. There are minor changes from the previous format, but the bulk of the reporting format remains the same.
