Generative AI Use Cases

A couple of years ago,  AI software able to generate content was pretty expensive and rather niche compared to now. With ChatGPT, Dall-E, or GitHub Copilot becoming accessible and widespread, everything has changed for both businesses and ordinary people. Today, it is safe to say that generative AI is changing everyone’s lives rapidly as well as the global economy.

McKinsey's research shows that generative AI is starting to boost the economy, as annual contributions could reach up to $4.4 trillion in some sectors. The majority of this value, around 75%, could be derived from customer operations, marketing and sales, software engineering, and research and development. Through 63 scenarios analyzed by McKinsey, generative AI proves useful in addressing 16 specific business challenges, such as aiding customer interactions, generating marketing content, and even coding based on natural language instructions.

At Flyaps, we’ve been helping businesses worldwide embrace new technologies, including AI, for over a decade. Having implemented AI for enterprises from various industries like recruiting, logistics, urban planning, and so on, our team stays tuned for gen AI usage. In this article, we want to describe the most promising use cases on how generative AI could create business value across industries.

Gen AI's impact on business functions and revenue performance

Though generative AI is a subset of AI, it distinguishes itself by its capacity to mimic and even enhance human creativity. This unique ability sets generative AI apart from other AI technologies and creates huge perspectives for businesses across various sectors. Look at the table below created by McKinsey to illustrate the research we’ve mentioned. As you can see, almost every sector can boost their revenue by adding generative AI to improve their marketing processes or software engineering.

With that in mind, let's dive a bit deeper into the typical advantages businesses get from using generative AI.

Cost reduction through automation

Here’s how Siemens is using Microsoft Copilot with their software for managing the manufacturing of their products. They're combining it with Microsoft Teams, a communication tool. As a result, if someone working on the production line notices a problem with how something is designed, they can just talk into their phone and report it using plain language. Then, the AI can quickly summarize the problem and send it to the right person to fix it.

By automating routine and repetitive tasks, generative AI reduces the need for manual labor. This efficiency not only cuts costs but also allows companies to allocate resources more effectively, potentially increasing profit margins.

Enhanced decision-making

AI can analyze vast amounts of data to suggest solutions, predict outcomes, and optimize decisions, often with greater accuracy and speed than human analysis alone.

Take the U.S. Energy Department, for example. Their grid operators keep an eye on electricity flow from generators to places like homes, hospitals and schools and act fast if there's a problem, like a storm. That's a lot of decisions they have to constantly make as well as comb through a lot of data.
To help them, researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory created a gen AI-based solution - ChatGrid. If an operator needs to learn something about the power grid, they can just ask ChatGrid a question, like “How much wind power is being generated in the Western Interconnection?”. ChatGrid then shows the answer with visualization.


Improved customer service

Generative AI can power sophisticated chatbots and virtual assistants that provide instant, 24/7 customer support. This level of service improves customer satisfaction and loyalty, which are critical for keeping customers coming back and sustaining steady revenue growth.

Delta Air Lines, a major American airline, has incorporated generative AI into Ask Delta - its chatbot designed to assist customers with various tasks such as checking in, tracking bags, and finding flights. The solution delivers quick and detailed responses, streamlining the process for customers to access the information they require and significantly reducing call center load, down by 20%.

Optimized supply chain

Generative AI can optimize various aspects of the supply chain, including inventory management, logistics, and demand forecasting. By reducing costs in these areas, businesses can enhance overall revenue performance.

Before the AI era, to ensure great customer experiences and timely product delivery, Domino’s Pizza UK & Ireland used spreadsheets to predict demand. After gen AI has gained traction and learned to forecast ideal stock levels based on demand trends and external factors, the company managed to automate the delivery process with Microsoft's Dynamics 365, improving its forecasting quality.

The company has already seen a 72% increase in accuracy through the use of demand planning capabilities.

Now, here are some real-life examples of how gen AI improves multiple aspects at once across different domains.

Gen AI use cases across different industries

Although generative AI is a new technology, many companies from various industries have already been harnessing the benefits we've covered. Let's explore a few generative AI use cases to understand how they achieve these benefits.


In one of their studies, ABI Research showcased how manufacturers can use the potential of generative AI. They identified 25 approaches for this industry to get the most out of gen AI. For instance, the study recommends manufacturers to use gen AI technology for predictive maintenance, inventory management, and product quality assurance.

Using the right tools is one of the most important ways to achieve success in manufacturing. Take the EOT’s Twin Talk GPT for example. It is a generative AI product that helps to monitor equipment's health. The tool combines generative AI and edge computing to simulate typical events. This data is then used to train the ML algorithms essential for optimizing equipment conditions and performance. In essence, EOT's Twin Talk GPT uses generative AI to improve predictive maintenance capabilities.

The role of generative AI in creating high-quality, personalized content tailored to specific audiences is priceless. Texts, images, videos, music, search engine optimization (SEO) and even sentiment analysis – all these are the areas where marketing teams now can free up around 5 hours a week and 3+ hours on a single piece of content to focus on strategy.

According to BCG’s research, 41% of CMOs are using gen AI to improve targeting and personalization. One of the most interesting examples of such usage is the Virgin Voyages campaign featuring Jennifer Lopez. Virgin Voyages, in collaboration with advertising agency VMLY&R and AI startup Deeplocal, launched an entertaining marketing campaign where Lopez “lent her likeness to an AI program” named Jen AI to promote Virgin Voyages cruises. Through the Jen AI tool on the Virgin Voyages website, consumers could create personalized cruise invitations. The campaign was not only innovative but also amusing, as it playfully highlighted the imperfections of AI.

Generative AI presents various opportunities for HR professionals. It can streamline tasks like resume screening, interview scheduling, and performance evaluations, saving time and improving productivity.

Generative AI tools are highly helpful with drafting job descriptions, guides, training materials, and HR policies, ensuring efficiency and reducing bias in documentation processes.

By analyzing data from platforms like LinkedIn and GitHub, generative AI can identify candidates with the right skill sets, aligning recruitment practices with the shift toward skill-based hiring.

Let’s take an example of - a platform designed to help programmers and other tech specialists find job opportunities wherever they prefer geographically. AI helped the company to fix a major problem - a huge amount of poorly written resumes that were hindering job seekers' chances of passing the initial CV screening process.

Initially, the team managed this manually by providing tips on how to improve each CV to make it stand out. However, as the number of CVs requiring assistance increased, the manual approach became overwhelming for the company's employees. This prompted's management to seek help from Flyaps to automate the process. So, we developed for them an AI-driven resume parser called CV Compiler. The solution assesses a candidate's skills and suggests relevant IT terms to improve their resume.
