Exela Technologies, Inc., a global business process automation (BPA) leader, announced it has surpassed 6,000 users on its Work-From-Anywhere (“WFA”) platform for Intelligent Document Processing. WFA enables IDP to leverage the gig economy for exception management and machine learning by providing a web app to add data capture validation from users that can work from anywhere, anytime. This cloud-hosted solution expands Exela’s technology advantage and is ramping from the current ~6,000 users towards an intended goal of over 25,000 users by year-end.
WFA opens access to a new flexible workforce around the globe to validate, correct and train samples of machine vision results. The variable workforce can log in to the web app from their own device to work from anywhere, whenever they are available, for as long as they would like. By parsing documents into disassociated snippets and presenting single characters for validation, data remains anonymous for even the most sensitive information. With a cloud-hosted web app, users can log in from their desktop or mobile device and get paid by the keystroke to confirm or correct character recognition, providing feedback to IDP’s machine learning algorithms while delivering the highest quality assurance. WFA provides competitive advantages to Exela by enabling sensitive data to be processed securely at the lowest global cost, with rapid scaling, routing, and access to distributed workforces, providing continuous improvement to AI feedback loops. Combined with a network of data scientists to customize deep learning models and classification engines, Exela’s IDP solution enables rapid rollout of advanced automation, supplemented by a global workforce, for a complete process solution to meet the highest quality requirements.
“As the global workforce evolves, Exela continues to provide innovative platforms to leverage the gig economy with our Work-From-Anywhere solutions,” said Suresh Yannamani, Exela’s President, adding, “we are excited to exceed our first user milestone on our WFA platform, and with the uberization of exception management, we are pleased to be creating on-demand job opportunities in countries hit with the pandemic and high unemployment.”
