Faktion and Robonext announce new partnership
Faktion and Robonext, two Belgian technology scale-ups from the Antwerp region, announce their partnership to help organizations capture the value of two transformational technologies: Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a software technology that enables companies to create virtual colleagues or software robots that mimic the actions of employees in digital systems. With RPA, a broad range of repetitive business processes can be automated, in finance, IT, HR, Operations, etc. According to Gartner, RPA is currently the fastest growing software segment in the world, due to its broad applicability and its impressive ROI.
Robonext (www.robonext.eu) is a leading RPA integrator specialized in providing implementation, support, and educational services to help companies to capture the value of RPA. Robonext is a technology partner of UiPath, Automation Anywhere, and Microsoft. The company is based in Edegem, Belgium, and supports more than 30 customers in the Benelux, such as Toyo Ink Europe, Scania, Vandersanden, and Quares.
Artificial Intelligence is a general-purpose technology that is transforming our world in a similarly fundamental way as steam power, electricity, and computers have in the past. AI mimics and enhances cognitive functions that we associate with the human mind, such as learning and problem-solving.
Faktion (www.faktion.com) is a boutique, end-to-end Artificial Intelligence service provider that enables organizations to build competitive cognitive capabilities for a future where data science and machine learning fulfill a pivotal role in the rapidly transforming economic reality. With offices in Belgium and Singapore, Faktion is quickly scaling its business and expands its professional services to both small and large enterprises in its local markets.
Recently, Faktion incubated Metamaze (www.metamaze.eu), a platform to automate complex manual workflows of both structured and unstructured documents through its best-in-class Natural Language Processing engine. The partnership between Faktion and Robonext will focus primarily on the integration of Metamaze and RPA.
By combining the strengths of AI and RPA, organizations can go beyond automating rule-based business processes and infuse intelligence in their robotic workforce.
Empowering RPA robots with AI, dramatically broadens the scope and deepens the impact of RPA, enabling organizations to automate more complex and cognitive tasks, such as classifying documents and emails, extracting information from unstructured data, and predicting outcomes based on real-time business data.
