In this section, we cover news, insights and trivia about Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), share interesting articles, podcasts, reports and more.
What we cover in this week’s recap:
Ocrolus wins 20 new customers and reports record growth and also integrates OpenAI’s GPT into its technology offering IDP provider Ocrolus announced that it has closed the first quarter with its strongest month for new business in company history, adding 20 new customers, among them innovative companies such as BSI Financial, Bluepoint Mortgage, Cion Digital and City Lending. Ocrolus sees one of the reasons for the record growth in lenders investing in automation to prepare and enable scalability for an eventual market upturn. Sam Bobley, co-founder and CEO of Ocrolus, commented: “We built strong momentum in Q1 with a flurry of new customer deals across a variety of use cases for Ocrolus.” In addition to this, Ocrolus also announced that it has integrated GPT embeddings from OpenAI into its set of technologies. This further strengthens the IDP provider’s ability to process semi-structured and unstructured documents, such as bank statements, paystubs and mortgage applications, without human involvement.
ISG launches ISG Automation on Demand Technology research and advisory firm Information Services Group (ISG) has announced the launch of ISG Automation on Demand, a consumption-based managed service for commonly used automation tools such as RPA, NLP and IDP. ISG Automation on Demand offers end-to-end automation of enterprise business processes and manages users’ automation infrastructure, licenses and maintenance. Chip Wagner, CEO of ISG Automation, explained: “After an initial – often successful – automation launch, many organizations find their progress is stalled by the time, resources and expense required to continue; by lightning-fast changes in automation tools, or by staff turnover. This solution enables clients to scale automation at significantly lower cost than building the capability on premises, control the use of technology licenses and gain access to the latest automation technologies on demand.”
Parashift now available on Google Cloud Marketplace IDP vendor Parashift has announced the availability of its IDP platform on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Marketplace. This means Google Cloud customers can now use their credits to pay for their Parashift subscription, while new Parashift customers benefit from discounts when they become Google Cloud customers. Alain Veuve, founder and CEO at Parashift, commented: “We were an early adopter of the cloud as the first provider of a comprehensive cloud-native platform for Intelligent Document Processing. Google is correspondingly important to us as a partner. Placing Parashift in the GCP Marketplace is therefore a logical consequence.”
