Crosser launches hyperautomation solution

Said to be a pioneer in edge analytics for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Swedish company Crosser has expanded the capabilities of its Crosser Platform with a new edition called Crosser IPA (Intelligent Process Automation). Claimed to be the first true hybrid hyperautomation platform to target industrial and asset-rich organisations, Crosser IPA is designed to help businesses to integrate and automate everything, from the shop floor to the top floor.

Enterprises of today are turning to new technologies in order to stay competitive. Hyperautomation is a broad term that, at its core, is an approach to automating as many processes as possible using modern technologies.

“Digital transformation is not one project,” said Martin Thunman, CEO and co-founder of Crosser. “It’s hundreds, sometimes thousands, of mini processes and use cases that need to become digital and automated.

“But organisations depend heavily on the specialist competencies of IT staff and software developers to realise their automation goals. This adds unnecessary pressure on both the IT teams and the rest of the business, as there’s simply not enough time and skill to spare. That’s why we need to place the power of implementing process automation in the hands of the normal users, what we call citizen developers, so an organisation can truly accelerate its digitalisation efforts.”

With the new capabilities of the Crosser IPA edition, the Crosser Platform provides a set of capabilities designed to help enterprises make their legacy systems part of Industry 4.0.

Key features of the Crosser Platform include:

  • Hybrid system: The platform can run intelligent workflows anywhere. This could be at the edge, on-premise in a private cloud or hosted by Crosser.
  • Supports over 700 systems: Users can connect their management systems, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), manufacturing execution system (MES) or product life cycle management (PLM), for seamless integration
  • Event-driven horizontal and vertical integration: Runs automation functions completely inside the firewall and claims to integrate everything from the shop floor to the top floor.
  • Stream analytics and logic: The IPA helps deliver real-time intelligent workflows with streaming analytics and advanced logic, powered by a library of modules as well as AI and machine learning.
  • Low code requirement: A visual drag-and-drop flow studio empowers non-developers to build intelligent workflows.
  • Many data types: Organisations can integrate legacy systems, enterprise systems and cloud applications as well as machine and IoT data.

“The market for hyperautomation software already has a number of vendors, but when Crosser looked closer, we found no solution that was purpose-built to meet the needs of industrial and asset-rich organisations,” continued Thunman. “We believe the Crosser Platform with the IPA edition fills a gap in the market and will help manufacturing companies embark on their Industry 4.0 journeys, whether they have in-house software developers or not.”
