Business process automation (BPA) leader, Exela Technologies today announced that it has surpassed 6,000 users on its Work-From-Anywhere (WFA) platform for Intelligent Document Processing (IDP). A web app that provides data capture validation from users who can work from anywhere at any time via WFA enables IDP to leverage the gig economy for exception management and machine learning.

Suresh Yannamani, Exela’s President, said, “As the global workforce evolves, Exela continues to provide innovative platforms to leverage the gig economy with our Work-From-Anywhere solutions. 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.”

Using WFA, machine vision results can be validated, corrected, and trained by a worldwide workforce. Using the web application, variable workforce members can work from anywhere, whenever they want, for however long they want. The data is anonymous up to the most sensitive information because the documents are parsed into separate snippets and single characters are presented for validation.

Through a cloud-hosted web application, users can sign in from their desktop or mobile device and get rewarded for confirming or correcting character recognition. This provides feedback to IDP’s machine learning algorithms while providing the highest level of quality assurance. With WFA, Exela can process sensitive data securely at the lowest global cost, with rapid scaling, routing, and access to distributed workforces, improving AI operations in a continuous loop. Exela’s IDP solution optimizes the quality of process administration with deep learning models and classification engines customized by a network of data scientists for rapid implementation. These models are supplemented by a global workforce to ensure a complete process solution.
