London, UK: 10 Novermber 2022: Seven technology companies from across the IA sector have unveiled the Intelligent Automation Collective (IAC), a unique collaboration to create and deploy a market-leading, end-to-end Intelligent Automation (IA) solution. The seven founding members of the IAC are: AntWorks, Emergence Partners, Enate, KYP.ai, OpenDialog, RPA Supervisor and XpertRule. Each company is renowned for its expertise in providing key elements of an IA solution, but together are able to augment their capabilities into a compelling offering that will solve many complex enterprise challenges. Dean Chapman Chief Commercial Officer for OpenDialog, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce our inclusion in the Intelligent Automation Collective today. We understand the challenges that Enterprises face in striking the balance between undertaking strategic automation programmes whilst also taking advantage of best-in-class technologies across each discipline. Through the IAC and alongside our partners AntWorks, Emergence Partners, Enate, KYP.ai, RPA Supervisor and XpertRule, we are now able to make it much easier for enterprises to transform at speed and mitigate many of the common inhibitors to adoption of Intelligent Automation. This partnership validates OpenDialog’s position as the best-in-class Conversational AI Platform. We look forward to helping our joint IAC customers leverage conversational AI as a fundamental component of their Intelligent Automation strategy.” The solution will accelerate IA adoption, reduce cost, and simplify the selection and buying process. It will also address the frustration that many buyers face in navigating through confusing and conflicting information, managing multiple contractual relationships, and dealing with the complexity of integrating multiple technologies. According to MarketsandMarkets™, the global Intelligent Process Automation Market size is expected to grow from USD 13.6 billion in 2022 to USD 25.9 billion by 2027. The IAC will specifically target enterprise businesses, and C-suite executives within them, who have become increasingly frustrated with existing ways of procuring and deploying advanced tech solutions and have often been underwhelmed with the results. A selection of the solutions offered by IAC are Intelligent document processing, smart business process management, advanced data mining, Conversational AI-based chatbots, automated decision-making and Intelligent Automation implementation and management. David Poole, Chairman of Emergence Partners, and lead spokesperson for the IAC said: “It is a fact that software vendors don’t traditionally play nicely together and leave it to the customer to fix interoperability and deployment challenges. We set up the IAC to be different; to harness the power of true collaboration and create something that works for the client and their specific challenges and opportunities.” David goes on to say, “We are not an eye-wateringly expensive systems integrator but a group of best-in-class innovators, working together without bias or ego, to deliver pain-free Intelligent Automation solutions to customers. Our unique and transparent contracting model and proprietary end-to-end automation solution make procuring, deploying, and scaling IA projects faster, cheaper, and more effectively.” The IAC will be running a series of free Intelligent Automation clinics for businesses looking to accelerate or improve their IA journey.
