SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2018--AppZen, the leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions for business automation, has been named a Benzinga Fintech Award winner for best use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (ML). AppZen’s patented technology has pioneered the use of AL and ML tools for automation of Travel & Expense report auditing, with plans to extend this disruptive technology into other business processes across the enterprise. Benzinga is a leading digital financial media publication and data provider that celebrates innovation and the leading minds in fintech. AppZen was chosen from a shortlist of 200 finalists.

“Several business processes are ripe for AI disruption,” said Anant Kale, Co-founder and CEO of AppZen. “Seventy percent of enterprise data is unstructured, creating an enormous challenge for companies wishing to streamline and scale, regardless of their size or industry. Our AI platform reads hundreds of thousands of line items, receipts, and databases in real time – to interpret behavioral patterns and understand the intent of each individual expense. When a company gets to audit 100% of expenses in great detail and in real time it’s an absolute game-changer. We can’t wait to productize our AI technology to approach other business processes.”

The Benzinga Awards competition recognizes the most innovative companies in every fintech vertical. Finalists and winners were determined by a panel of judges made up of industry experts from firms including Google, D.E. Shaw, CNBC, Fidelity, DRW, J.P. Morgan and others.
