July 7, 2020 – TheNewswire – contextere, an industrial software company and global innovator in AI solutions focussed on human performance, has been recognized by research and advisory firm Gartner in their 2020 report on ‘Cool Vendors in the Digital Workplace1‘.

“It is exciting to see our human-centric vision emphasizing technology augmentation over automation enter the mainstream” says Gabe Batstone, CEO of contextere. “As the report notes, IT leaders responsible for data, analytics and information should pay attention to the opportunity to integrate information technology with operational technology to use context to proactively deliver all of the relevant information needed to complete a task”.

According to a World Economic Forum survey of OCED countries, one in four adults reported a mismatch between their current skill sets and the qualifications required to do their jobs.2 Key barriers include an data overload, limited capability to convert data into knowledge, and a lack of context-based intelligence.

The contextere machine learning platform for MRO (maintenance, repair, operations) extracts previously inaccessible operational data, curates the information, and then delivers knowledge to frontline workers. Using a mobile focused conversational interface, the end user is then empowered to rapidly obtain intelligence, make effective decisions, and act with confidence.
