Novatics Appen IA

What was the customer problem?

IA based solutions are becoming more and more popular, changing and disrupting industries around the world. Big IA companies are promising an automated future, but many of their products rely on the labeled training data. Companies like Appen and Figure-Eight, global leaders in providing high-quality annotated training data, need to update their platforms with improvements and new features to respond to the rhythm of this competitive and innovative market.

But, how to handle such huge and complex product backlogs keeping time, cost and quality on track? We all know how hard it is to hire a good team. Recruiting talent in the US, especially in Silicon Valley, is even harder and costly. 

What exactly does Novatics do to solve the problem?

Novatics helps companies and startups that suffer, with a shortage of great developers, limited budgets, and bad offshoring options.

During the project we cooperate with highly skilled teams, distributed in different countries (US, China, and Australia), to design and implement great solutions for data annotation and flow management tools. Appen partners with technology, automotive and eCommerce companies — as well as governments worldwide — to help them develop, enhance and use products that rely on natural languages and machine learning.

The Novatics Advantage:

  • Startup spirit – We are good and experienced with remote work, agile practices, and modern tech stack.
  • You gain diversity and a team with a value-oriented culture
  • We offer highly skilled squads that are immersed in a great culture. All that with a competitive cost in a manageable timezone difference.

What were the results? 

We helped Appen and Figure-Eight to develop and deliver new features to their platform on time and on budget.

“Novatics team is very knowledgeable, creative, and proactive. It has been a great experience working with them. “
