Cowry Cabinets kitchen design app is 'groundbreaking' in AI and Big Data use
VANCOUVER - AI and Big Data are top business trends in Canada, which hosts a bevy of conferences on Artificial Intelligence. But the home remodeling and construction industries have yet to see the benefits of these new technologies.
According to Vancouver-based Cowry Cabinets, the amount of data required to create intelligent design software has proven an obstacle to the implementation of AI technology to applications like home remodels. Home renovation companies simply don't have the resources to acquire enough data to successfully create smart design software. 
"We have seen how drastically new technologies have changed other industries, and today, Cowry is spearheading that change in the kitchen construction business," says Cowry.
"The AI Kitchen Designer is the first of its kind in an industry where, up until now, the only option has been to spend time and resources on a designer and a dealer. Cowry's vision is to develop the app into a professional kitchen shopping platform where users can go to purchase products from hundreds of kitchen suppliers. Suppliers will in turn benefit from this arrangement, by saving on marketing expenses and operating costs."  
Cowry Cabinets manufactures high-quality solid wood cabinetry in China and operates a 25,000 sq.ft. warehouse in Greater Vancouver, with about 25 dealers. It says AI Kitchen Designer will allow users to shop for, design, and purchase a kitchen all through one easy-to-use, smart AI platform. Cowry's goal is to extend the benefits of AI and Big Data to the renovation industry, and in the process, provide its customers with an easier, more affordable way to design and build kitchens.
The AI Kitchen Designer app delivers in three key ways:
Patented Advanced Intelligent Design Software – The design process is simplified to the extent that anybody from a first-time renovator to a no-nonsense contractor could download the app and design a kitchen in a matter of minutes. Users enter space measurements and select cabinet and hardware styles. Cowry's 3D rendering technology will use this information to instantly generate a visual representation of your kitchen design.
Easy Process from Design to Assembly – Once a customer orders a kitchen through the app, the cabinetry will be shipped from Cowry's local Richmond warehouse within 24 hours and arrive pre-made and ready for easy assembly. Whether customers install cabinets or use a contractor, the process follows Cowry's step-by-step instructions.
Competitive Prices for Premium Quality – By ordering a kitchen directly through the Cowry app, customers will get prices as low as $999 USD for a standard 10'x10' kitchen. That's less than the price for a sectional sofa. In addition to the money saved by designing the kitchen themselves, these types of prices will make kitchen renovations affordable even for those on the tightest budget — without sacrificing on quality.
Through this business model and the company's strategy of cooperation with local service suppliers across North America, Cowry is building a brand-new ecosystem which encompasses the kitchen renovation process from end-to-end and has the potential for exponential growth.
