April 30th, 2024

By: High Touch Technologies

Are you looking to “magically” revolutionize your rent-to-own business operations without the headache of new hires or a hefty budget line item? Do you want to make your operations more efficient and customer-friendly?

You’re in the right place—this is where artificial intelligence (AI) can come in handy.

In this blog, we’ll show you how you can start using AI tools to help transform your business. There’s so much to learn when it comes to AI. Our goal with this blog is to help get you started on your journey, understanding how AI can be an incredible business tool when used appropriately, safely, and securely.

What Is AI and How Is It Relevant to the RTO Industry?

At the most basic level, AI is a specialized field of computer science that involves creating machines that mimic human intelligence. In simpler terms, it’s like having a virtual assistant at your disposal, capable of understanding and responding to human language. Take, for instance, ChatGPT and Microsoft Copilot, which are prime examples of AI tools that utilize machine learning algorithms to interact with users effectively.

In the realm of rent-to-own (RTO) businesses, AI holds tremendous promise—it has the potential to greatly enhance customer experience and operational efficiency by helping automate tasks, provide insights from data, and improve decision-making processes.

Navigating Cybersecurity Concerns

Before we dive deeper into how AI tools can help you revolutionize your business, we need to address a big elephant in the room: cybersecurity. While AI offers unparalleled productivity and business intelligence, it also poses security risks that cannot be overlooked.

No one wants to make the headlines for the wrong reasons, right?

Adopting a proactive approach to security and data management can help mitigate your risk and protect your organization’s valuable information, including customer data. If you’re considering using AI in your business, we highly recommend conducting a cybersecurity risk assessment to help identify potential vulnerabilities and risks. Additionally, proper data classification can help ensure that our sensitive data is protected and only accessible to authorized users. Implementing retention policies and properly offboarding users can help prevent data leaks and ensure compliance with data protection regulations. Finally, regularly assessing your SaaS applications, such as Microsoft 365, for risky and failed login attempts can help detect potential security threats.

Remember, the consequences of overlooking cybersecurity can be severe—ranging from data breaches to financial losses and damage to your company’s reputation.
