Automation Hero wins the 2022 Digital Innovator Award from Intellyx


November 21, 2022: This has been a big year for Automation Hero.

For one, Automation Hero’s intelligent document processing (IDP) and patent-pending Context-Aware OCR technologies appeared in multiple independent benchmark reports where they outperformed even the top industry leaders.

Additionally, its end-to-end intelligent document processing platform has been at the forefront of several AI publications. Both the platform and its custom technology have picked up a few awards along the way.

In 2022, the analysts put both IDP and OCR technologies through their paces, and the results are in. According to GigaOm, Hero Platform_’s Context-Aware OCR is 281% more accurate at handwriting recognition than the leading competitor’s OCR — plus, it’s more than 90% accurate at cursive recognition. The proof is in the pudding. In 2022, Automation Hero’s proprietary tech was measured, published, and awarded by GigaOmDeep AnalysisTIBCO, and, now, Intellyx — an independent analyst firm dedicated to digital transformation.

Automation Hero is incredibly proud to announce — (and accept) — Intellyx’s 2022 Digital Innovator Award. Intellyx only awards the vendors that make it through a highly rigorous selection process. It is almost unheard of for a startup to be recognized twice for its intelligent document processing and AI innovations — but here they are again. When giving the award to Automation Hero, Jason Bloomberg, the President of Intellyx, explained: 

“…we get dozens of PR pitches each day from a wide range of vendors…[but]…we will only set up briefings with the most disruptive and innovative firms in their space. That’s why it made sense for us to call out the companies that made the cut.” 

Intellyx is the first — (and only) — analyst firm to dedicate itself to digital transformation strategies fully. As artificial intelligence (AI) and IDP innovators with roots firmly planted in data analytics, this award is not only a milestone for Automation Hero as a startup — it’s an achievement close to the heart.  

Automation Hero is a startup comprised of data experts on a mission to help businesses navigate the rapid growth of data. In fact, CEO, Stefan Groschupf, saw first-hand the real struggles financial institutions confront as they navigate mountains of paperwork and “unstructured” data.  

At his previous company, Datameer, Stefan experienced the actual value of latent, unmined unstructured data locked away inside older heritage document processes. Of course, manually typing out the text from hard-to-read handwriting, illegible signatures, and blurry images of scanned documents are daily struggles at any organization. But, in highly regulated organizations like banks, insurance, and government institutions — these convoluted paper trails pose a real barrier to digital transformation.

Today, as the founder and CEO of Automation Hero, Stefan, and his team are laser-focused on fixing these same global big data problems across the board — for every industry — by democratizing AI for everyone. But Stefan says, “We want businesses to keep focusing on what they do best, so they don’t have to become data scientists themselves.” On receiving the Digital Innovator Award from Intellyx, Stefan has this to add:

“We’re always proud to be recognized for our work, but this award is especially validating given the digital transformation expertise among the Intellyx analysts. Our team has brought no shortage of hard work and innovation to our platform, and we hear from our customers daily about its impact on their work. And we’re even more excited about what’s next.”

As a startup, it is impressive and remarkable to be recognized by — (yet another) — independent analyst firm for all the disruptive innovation they have created in 2022. The company will continue leveraging its data analytics expertise to help organizations worldwide process the valuable data hiding in any unstructured document faster than ever — using the most accurate and scalable intelligent document processing platform in the world.

As digital experiences continue to be the de facto way companies interact with their customers, effective data management will become synonymous with customer satisfaction.
