Councyl makes
decision support possible for your organisation

AI technology can speed-up and improve decision making. Until now this wasn’t easy, but Councyl introduces a scientifically proven innovation that is not dependent on Big-Data and produces fully transparent models. This makes self learning decision support possible for any organisation. Also your organisation. Welcome to Councyl.

What is Decision Support?

More and more technological tools are being used to support complex decisions, because the internal and external pressure on organisations to perform continues to increase. It is just not always possible to find a few colleagues to discuss or you don’t always have the time to think quietly.

A decision support system is software that supports trade-offs, judgement and actions within an organisation. Before one needed to capture the explicit knowledge in manually written decision rules. Since the availability of Big-Data one tries to find decision patterns through analysis or machine learning. Both approaches have their advantages but definitely also their disadvantages.

Councyl has a very different approach: Councyl doesn’t work with Big Data, but with Expert Data

Councyl works with Expert Data

A Councyl is a self learning decision support system that provides advice on a specific complex decision that is being made repetitively within your organisation. This advice is based on the anonymised choices of your own domain experts. Through a choice-experiment we accurately model the expert trade-offs using their choice behavior. The result is a transparent representation of how your expert make decisions.

The inginieus Councyl software creates a self learning decision support system in 4 simple steps:

1. Questionnaire

A group of experts from your organisation is asked to make a decision on a set of carefully generated fictional but realistic scenarios.

2. Model

The Councyl software distills the implicit trade-offs out of the answers of the experts. These trade-offs and their underlying relations are made explicit through an econometric model.

3. Validate

We present the model in a insightful introspective report to check if the result matches your intuition and validate the accuracy using test data.

4. Apply

The model can be used directly through our online user interface or API. The system continues to learn from the choices that the expert makes in practice.

Human Resources Demo

The assessment criteria are already determined with your team.
Do you invite a candidate or not? That is the question.

Permit Demo

Situation: A local government receives a lot of permit requests for festivals this spring, and you have to find the right balance between the interest of the surrounding and the need to party.
The assessment criteria are already determined with your team.
Do you accept the permit request or not? That is the question.

Insurance Demo

Situation: a large insurance firm regularly receives quotation requests for a business liability insurance. You don’t want to miss out on customers but you also have to prevent underwriting a too big risk. 
The assessment criteria are already determined with your team. 
Do you accept the this insurance policy or not? That is the question.
