This morning our CEO, Justin Adams, published a press release announcing that I've joined Digitize.AI as a Co-Founder a VP Sales this week (full copy below).
I'm extremely excited to be a part of the Digitize.AI founding team along with Justin and our CTO Thomas Gathings, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to help grow our team and expand our client base. (My wife, Clay, and our kids, Nina and Turner, are pretty pumped about this new venture, too.)
Artificial Intelligence... Robotic Process Automation... Machine Learning... these are potential-rich and adrenaline-inducing technologies that can spur fantastical thoughts and implications for how we will live in our lives and run our businesses in the future. Why I'm so bullish about the prospects for Digitize.AI's growth and success in this arena is the grounded and practical approach we're taking in building out our offering. While our long-term vision is appropriately (necessarily!) audacious, our product roadmap is incrementally progressive and implementable, and our client service goal is simple: to create "intelligent automation" tools that help business and IT leaders improve processes, more easily extract data for decision-making, and increase the ROI on their existing software.
We know this holds immense appeal and inherent value for executives across the org charts in the industries we serve. And the pragmatic, near-term-executable, ROI-centric approach to technological innovation is a hallmark of the Charlotte tech and startup community. Many IT services, mobile development, and product companies in this market have have built long-standing and successful businesses on a similar philosophy, and I look forward to helping Digitize.AI continue in that tradition of value-creation and growth.
We're solving big, complex business problems and creating real, measurable value with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Per my "press release approved" remarks below... if you're a business or IT leader and you want to explore how these technologies can help your business improve workflows and unlock data for better decision-making (and/or if you’re a technologist, engineer, data scientist, designer, sales professional, marketer, or customer success advocate who's looking for a new adventure) give us a call today.
