Maltese AI company opens its doors in the UK
Staying ahead in the accelerating technology race requires companies to be nimble and able to take informed decisions on where and how to scale their businesses.
Technology start-ups in Malta are often bound to their initial set-up location, but this is not the case for EBO. Within six months from starting its activities in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) sector, it has now opened its doors in the UK and is rapidly scaling up its operations in this territory and other European capitals.
As this conceptual side of computer science becomes more relevant to business, companies are quickly adopting AI to boost their results and improve their economic output.
“I believe that AI will radically change business. As operating budgets are squeezed and a need for better customer experience is registered, EBO presents a technology solution that helps kick-start profitability. EBO consists of multiple technologies that help our ‘bots’ comprehend, learn and act on human input. Businesses are taking on our solution as it helps them scale their business through automation,” said Dr Gege Gatt, CEO of EBO.
“In our second phase of development we opened a UK office and are now running a fully-fledged operation in the banking and healthcare sector. In both these industries we are bringing intelligent automation to our customers by providing real-time management of customers. We help companies streamline their operations and then provide the technical muscle – through Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning – to augment their labour force.”
EBO’s UK office is run by its Group Commercial Director Rhys Powell who oversees the growth of the company across its present key markets: UK, Italy, Israel and Malta. “EBO is driving growth in three important ways. First, it creates a new virtual workforce for our customers. Second, it enhances the skills and abilities of their existing workforce. Third, it drives economic growth. I’m thrilled to have joined EBO – the company does things differently and is growing aggressively whilst pursuing its vision to help businesses get closer to their customers.”
EBO is helping companies realise the potential of AI and creating new business capabilities for unprecedented growth and profitability. In this regard EBO’s UK subsidiary is assisting it to keep close to its core market as well as retain a European character in its growth.
