COPENHAGEN, DENMARK | JANUARY | 2019
Valcon and 2021.AI create strong synergies through their combined business model. Valcon’s consulting services help companies ensure efficiency, primarily through optimized data usage, while 2021.AI provides the underlying AI platform technology and data sciences expertise to warrant a successful AI implementation. It is a remarkable partnership, that will strengthen the market position of both companies.
CEO of 2021.AI, Mikael Munck, states: “Valcon is a market leader in optimization of company operations. In combination with our Grace AI platform, it will enable us as partners to offer implementation and utilization of AI across all sectors. We see tremendous synergies in the combined services and shared solutions to solve clients’ business challenges.”
“With Valcon, we further reinforce the fulfillment of one of our strategic objectives to become a global leading AI technology provider. We are now closer to this goal thanks to our firm partnership with a leading management consulting firm with competences in advanced analytics and organisational transformation.”
Valcon is also determined to becoming part of 2021.AI. Valcon’s CEO, Thomas Fischer, states: “We already have a highly data-driven approach to our clients’ business challenges, however, our leading position in Europe imposes on us an obligation to be on even more cutting edge in terms of the technology we offer to our clients. We have already successfully delivered several projects in cooperation with 2021.AI, and we are therefore pleased that they have offered us the opportunity to become the shareholder. We are looking forward to our collaboration and continued integration of our services.”
As previously mentioned, 2021.AI and Valcon have already cooperated on a number of clients. This initial cooperation will now move ahead in a more formalized manner.
“There is no doubt that our partnership with 2021.AI will allow us to have an even more comprehensive approach to our clients’ issues. With machine learning and predictive analytics, we have been able to provide our clients with an unprecedented effect and speed in the optimization of their operations,” says Lasse Mortensen, Head of Analytics and AI in Valcon.
