ORLANDO, Fla., May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kore Inc., an SAP partner and emerging leader in the enterprise bots category, today announced a new suite of bots that will be available for demonstrations at SAPPHIRE® NOW and ASUG Annual Conference being held May 17–19 in Orlando at booth #1450. Kore Bots help users to communicate more simply with business-critical systems running SAP® solutions through natural language, in the form of text and voice, on a variety of platforms including SAP Jam™, Skype, SMS, Amazon Echo and email. Kore's Bots integrate with SAP solutions including SAP ERP, SAP S/4HANA, SuccessFactors®, Concur®, Ariba® and others through SAP HANA® Cloud Platform.
As part of Kore's OEM partnership with SAP, the company has successfully completed its SAP solution qualification and received certification from SAP Integration and Certification Center. In addition, Kore is a 2016 SAP Pinnacle Awards finalist for OEM Partner of the Year.
Today, the average employee uses as many as 30 applications at work. Getting a job done requires toggling between multiple apps with distinct interfaces, in numerous places, which hurts productivity. Kore simplifies the way people work by naturally connecting them with the enterprise applications they already use from wherever they are communicating. How? With bots. Kore Bots connect smoothly with SAP solutions. With natural language users can receive alerts, get reports, execute direct actions and complete workflow tasks. Instead of wasting valuable time navigating disparate interfaces, users simply speak to, email or message their Kore Bots and the bot carries out a task for them.
"Today's workforce is bombarded with alerts, notifications and emails," said Raj Koneru, founder and CEO of Kore. "They waste hours weeding through applications to get one task done. Our vision is to change how the workforce – from services to supply chain to sales to HR – communicates with the business-critical systems companies rely on. SAP's commitment to helping clients 'Run Simple' matches naturally with our goal of empowering people to work simple. We're excited to demonstrate these integrations at SAPPHIRE NOW and highlight our partnership with a company dedicated to helping enterprises maximize their operations, productivity and potential."
In addition to workflow efficiencies, there is also a clear business impact that helps reduce costs and drive growth:
- Increase agility by using natural text and speech to perform complicated tasks that normally require multiple interactions
- Accelerate productivity by reducing response time between receiving alerts and taking associated actions
- Reduce complexity by enabling users to interact with SAP solutions from familiar social and messaging platforms like SAP Jam, SMS, Skype and email
- Increase user satisfaction by providing users with a modern and innovative way to work with systems of record
- Deploy quickly and efficiently because the creation of new bots only takes a few hours instead of the weeks or months it typically takes to build custom apps and integrations
The Kore platform is available for Android, iOS and desktop at www.kore.com.
