ROCKVILLE, Md., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Fincons Group increases its support of the digital transformation within financial services, enhancing its offering for banks and insurance companies with the expert.ai Natural Language API and expert.ai Studio.
The cloud-based expert.ai NL API provides developers and data scientists deep language understanding without requiring IT infrastructure, reducing development cost while optimizing natural language processing (NLP) applications. Smart from the start, expert.ai Studio is a downloadable fully integrated development environment for building custom applications leveraging advanced expert.ai AI capabilities for categorization, extraction etc. to meet specific customer needs.
For banks and insurance companies, the need to accelerate innovation by leveraging artificial intelligence applied to text analysis via NLU is an essential factor for creating value and increasing competitiveness. However, legacy or fragmented systems and long implementation times increase costs and often create barriers to digital transformation.

Fincons has extensive experience creating tailored solutions for specific customer needs which has led to the development of advanced AI NLU solutions, driven by expert.ai NL API and expert.ai Studio.
"By using AI applied to natural language, companies in the financial services and insurance sector can derive tangible value from their information. The potential offered by expert.ai in terms of its API and development environment is a critical success factor for initiating change in a way that is not only fast, but also predictable and easy," said Giuliano Altamura, Global Financial Services and Insurance Business Unit General Manager at Fincons Group. "Our partnership with expert.ai will allow us to offer an enriched proposition of digital transformation solutions. In fact, we can provide even greater support to customers in extracting relevant information from complex and unstructured texts and automating tasks to take operational efficiency to the next level."
