The acquisition adds 30 full-time employees in OaklandBoulder, Colorado, and New York City.

Regulated enterprises in the insurance, financial services, pharmaceutical, and healthcare industries use Vidado technology to automate paper-to-digital data extraction as a component of their digital transformation.  The SaaS machine learning solution enables enterprises to achieve significant cost savings and accelerate the automation of business processes.

“The financial and healthcare industries are challenged by the abundance of manual paper-based transactions, often including significant amounts of handwritten data,” said Bill Stone, Chairman, and CEO. “The addition of Vidado and Captricity’s team will complement SS&C’s business process outsourcing (BPO) services and our AWD business process management solution.  We look forward to working with Vidado’s talented team to continue to deliver intelligent solutions.”
