Digitization of Paperwork & Natural Language Processing (NLP) (Open Source)

Conventional paper, MS Excel and MS Word form usage is still a challenge, as companies use thousands of paper sheets and Microsoft documents in service & maintenance, field and warranty management day in, day out. Free text information about condition of assets has rarely been considered for analytics given for instance the difficulties in creating reportable sentiments.

Working with our customers, EXA came to understand that some customers seek an overall solution bundle and others are looking for individual advanced analytical micro services to be integrated in a flexible way with existing warranty, service & maintenance, field management software and databases.

Digitization of paperwork & natural language processing is prerequisite to open new business case solutions such as Emerging Issue Detection and Reliability Care including Predictive Maintenance.
