Quanton is excited to officially announce our partnership with ABBYY to provide New Zealand businesses Content Intelligence in Process Automation.
The new partnership will help New Zealand businesses gain the benefits of Optical Character Recognition, Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP), which when combined with Robotic Process Automation, will extend the potential breadth and depth of automation and digitally transform operating models.
Quanton is now officially a value-added re-seller (VAR) of ABBYY’s technology platform, which uses artificial intelligence to find, extract and action information and data from written language including emails, contract, forms and images. When combined with Robotic Process Automation, ABBYY becomes a powerful platform to digitally transform organisations, a discussion explored comprehensively in a paper by ABBYY, New Technologies Give Rise to Content Intelligence.
ABBYY solutions capture information at the front-end, rapidly analyse and route it to the right processes to provide cognitive intelligence. The company’s product portfolio covers a broad range of business processes across organisations of any size and industry, including content intelligence for RPA, accounts payable automation, customer experience management, input management for SAP, mobile capture, document archiving forms processing, eDiscovery and intelligent text analytics.
The first to deliver Robotic Process Automation in New Zealand, Quanton have built a reputation for quality and leadership by combining leading global technologies and practices with local capability and experience. ABBYY’s own global leadership position was recently validated when they were named the market leader for Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) in the Everest Group’s PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2019.
The assessment focused on 16 globally recognized technology vendors and assesses produce capabilities, improved features, security, partnership, support in terms of product training, maintenance, consulting and other support services, availability and adoption of commercial models and portfolio coverage in terms of industry, geography, process areas and buyer size.
Garry Green, Quanton’s Founder and MD says the addition of ABBYY to Quanton’s line-up builds out the Kiwi company’s service offering and adds new opportunities for customers.
“One of the great things about ABBYY is that it integrates with the major RPA platforms, including UiPath and Blue Prism, which we also offer. Adding ABBYY to our line-up means we can provide customers with intelligent automation and the ability to automate processes from end to end,” Green says.
“ABBYY’s offerings can be used on their own, or in conjunction with RPA. It will enable more people to get in and automate some of their processes, kicking off with dealing with content. We can work with customers to identify their needs and provide a solution whether a single product or the right mix of products.”
ABBYY is already successfully delivering value to New Zealand organisations including Electionz.com who manage a complicated set of requirements in our paper-based local government voting system. ABBYY is now used to support vote counting and input results into digital record systems. The processing quality which ABBYY delivers is encapsulated powerfully when Steve Kilpatrick, Managing Director, electionz.com said: “We have been able to configure ABBYY Flexi Capture so that we can confidently defend our results before a court judge and that they will endure a judicial recount.” Providing some context to scale, according to an article published on idm.net.au, 600,000 ballot papers in multiple formats are processed over a 16-day period.
Henry Patishman, ABBYY Sales Director – ANZ, says Quanton’s strong foothold in the RPA market – it was the first company to successfully deliver RPA in New Zealand – was a winner for ABBYY, which is focused on partnering with leading RPA providers.
“New Zealand is seen as an innovative market and an early adopter. Quanton is well regarded especially in the banking and finance industries, where we see a very close alignment and a strong demand for our technologies due to the massive volumes of documentation and regulatory compliance they face,” Patishman says.
“Our solutions provide intelligence to all different types of content which come into organisations, and in many cases, we are giving cognitive intelligence to the robots,” adds Patishman. “ABBYY is very well positioned to take automation to the next level by using natural language processing, machine learning and neural networks to streamline and accelerate processes within organisations.”
“ABBYY is a world-leading provider, with a proven product and a great roadmap to continue keeping it relevant. They have impressive customers and great use cases, and we are proud to be partnering with them,” Green says. “Their offerings work across any sector, including finance, insurance, telcos, and healthcare – anywhere where there is a finance function or transactional forms or data coming in.”
