fusion AI / Two-Way RAG


Technical Specifications

Q. What technologies are integrated into this service?

A. The following technologies are integrated into this service.

  • fusion AI Chatbot
  • Open AI Assistants API
  • Microsoft Azure Open AI Service
  • Open-source issue management infrastructure, REDMINE
  • fusion AI Manipulation Modules for REDMINE
  • Various REDMINE options (plug-in, cloud services)

Q. What security measures are in place for the system?

A. For system security measures, fusion AI / Two-Way RAG utilizes the Microsoft Azure Open AI Service. By using this service, the user’s security is protected according to the Azure Open AI rules. Specifically, user prompts and responses from the AI will not be used by other users or used to train the AI. This information will be logged by Microsoft for 30 days and maintained for the purpose of monitoring abuse and eliminating harmful content. If you wish to use fusion AI in your own Azure environment, you may apply to Microsoft to be excluded from these processes. Synergy Research Corporation who provides fusion AI services will also manage confidential information in accordance with the terms of the contract with the customer.

Installation and Support

Q. How does the implementation process proceed?

A. The implementation process begins with a free consultation where users can easily discuss their issues. During the free consultation, multiple sessions can be held as needed. We will then propose a “Consulting & Requirements Analysis” proposal for application to one or more operations. At this stage, a contract is signed, and the implementation is moved to the implementation phase. Usually, cost estimation up to the operational phase can be done in this phase. Then, the issue management system, REDMINE, is introduced and configured as necessary, assistants are set up, and the assistant tools are developed and tested. Once in operation, fusion AI support team will continue to provide support for utilization and maintenance of the infrastructure and tools.

Q. How is your support system organized?

A. Once the system is operational, fusion AI support team will enter into a contract for the ongoing support and maintenance of the user. This support system is not limited to maintenance of the environment and tools already set up, but also provides utilization support including expansion of applicable operations and enhancement and expansion of existing functions. The content and grade of support will be flexibly proposed based on the customer’s requirements, and an optimal support plan will be established accordingly. This structure enables users to receive prompt and accurate assistance when technical problems or operational questions arise.

Q. Do you offer a training program?

A. Yes, a training program is provided. The training required in the initial phase is provided upon delivery of the environment and tools. This will familiarize the user with the basic operation and functionality of the system. In addition, additional training programs can be implemented upon user request. This will promote effective use of the system and further utilization of its functions.

Cost and Return on Investment

Q. How much does this service cost?

A. The cost of this service will vary depending on the grade of service provided but can be outlined as follows.

At the time of introduction, consulting & requirements analysis starts at 450,000 yen for one job and one month. Various configurations and tool development also start at 450,000 yen for one job and one month as well. Discounts are available when multiple tasks are combined.

For operational costs, utilization support and maintenance start at 50,000 yen per month. This includes support for expansion of applicable operations.

Operational expenses include a fee for the use of REDMINE. This ranges from free to about 1,000 yen/user/month. If the user company uses its own open source, there is no charge, but if paid plug-ins or cloud services are used, there is a monthly fee based on the number of users. In addition, costs based on the amount of Microsoft Azure Open AI Service usage and information infrastructure-related costs must also be considered.

We encourage you to contact us directly for a detailed fee structure and specific quotes.

Q. How is ROI calculated?

A. As detailed data on return on investment (ROI) calculations are not yet collected at this time, specific calculation methods and specific figures will be announced in the future. Typically, the profit and expense items required for ROI calculations are as follows: items specific to the fusion AI service are indicated with (fusion AI) at the end of the item name:

Initial investment items:

  1. Consulting & Requirements Analysis Costs (fusion AI)
  2. Various setup & tool development costs (fusion AI)

Ongoing cost items:

  1. Microsoft Azure Open AI Service usage fee
  2. Information infrastructure-related expenses
  3. REDMINE usage fees (from free to paid options)
  4. Utilization support and maintenance costs (fusion AI)

Profit items:

  1. Cost savings from efficiency improvements: reductions in labor, time, and operating costs (reductions vary by operation and industry, but typically range from 20% up to 70%)
  2. Increased Productivity: Increased productivity by allowing employees to focus on higher value work.
  3. Increased customer satisfaction: Increased customer satisfaction through improved speed and quality of service leads to increased repeat business and new customers.
  4. Market Expansion: Opportunities for market expansion through the adoption of new technologies

User Experience

Q. How much has your efficiency improved using this system?

A. Specific examples of actual results in which efficiency was improved by using this system will be presented in the future, along with detailed data. In previous demonstrations, for example, a customer complaint was registered as a REDMINE issue, the complaint handling procedure was created by a generative AI, and the results were registered directly in the complaint issue to prompt action on the next process. This process significantly increased the speed and accuracy of task processing, allowing employees to focus on more strategic and creative work. (Use Case)

Q. What kind of user feedback do you receive?

A. For user feedback, we share some reactions from test deployments and demonstrations. As an example, a major engineering company was impressed and highly evaluated that the results of a conversation (chat) between the user and AI were instantly reflected in the task schedule. Another SaaS provider commented, “I had not known how to combine business systems and AI, but now I know that there is a way to let AI operate business systems without requiring AI to learn on a large scale. In addition, we have received feedback from consulting firms that the power of the task assistants makes prompts tremendously shorter, and that it is very useful that the results of conversations are immediately registered as tasks and can be recognized from back-end processes. This feedback provide valuable insights into how the system works in a real work environment and are important indicators for future improvements and developments.
