Crayon and Intact Announce Strategic PartnershipFeb 10, 2023
Austrian software company Intact and Norwegian technology service provider Crayon announce partnership for future-oriented AI.
AI-Trailblazing Made in Austria
Artificial intelligence (AI) and its application areas are currently the focus of international data and software research. Few people are aware that Austria plays a leading role in this field.
Intact published the first AI-based analysis software for testing and certification data as early as 2020. It enables internationally renowned organizations such as the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) or the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) to analyze audit data across the board, and discover completely new correlations. This allows them not only to adapt their strategy to optimize results, but above all to strengthen their approach to integrity.
After the first successful deployments, the team behind Intact Analytics strived for further progress and went in search of a strategic partner. They found what they were looking for in Vienna – at the Austrian branch of the internationally successful technology and consulting company Crayon.
Crayon and Intact have already implemented their first joint projects together in 2022 and will launch their official, strategic partnership in the first quarter of 2023.
“With Crayon, we have found a partner that not only ideally represents our values, but also brings an excellent track record. They have extensive expertise in key areas of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, which gives us the opportunity to integrate further innovations into our products. We are convinced that all sides will benefit from our strategic partnership. Through our work on AI in testing and certification, we are one giant step closer to a completely new and better way of quality control,”
“Intact is one of the most exciting hidden champions on the Austrian software market. The company has always demonstrated a pioneering spirit and is the market leader in the field of audit and certification software. Through their experience and our expertise and implementation competence in the areas of Data & AI, we can jointly take a new path towards an AI-supported audit and certification platform,”
