Research Lab

The world is changing and so are we.

In today’s world, new technologies become available at an increasingly faster pace. It is challenging, or even impossible, to adapt to these continuous changes and seize new opportunities within normal product development cycles.

We need a way to try, test and prototype solutions and technologies to find out what would benefit Aico users and Aico Research Lab members. To put it simply: an agile way to try out technologies that will be 6 to 24 months ahead of the Aico platform roadmap development.

How does it work?

Opennes is built in, no previous customer relationship with Attido required.

Co-creation will be the major asset. We are open for ideas and willing to share our ideas, your responsbility is to judge them or bring your own

Diversity is a strenght – combined experience will broaden the view.

What do we research?

Man-to-machine interaction

  • What would the finance department look like without email & Excel?
  • What could chatbots do for the finance department?
  • NLP as part of a solution?
  • Does augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) offer something to the finance department?
