New York and Zurich – October 10, 2017 – Squirro, the AI-driven context intelligence and insights solution provider, has announced that Synpulse, a management consulting company, has become a global gold partner.

Synpulse has already worked with Squirro on a number of successful Financial Services (FS) rollouts in countries including the US and Switzerland. The success of the partnership has led Squirro to appoint Synpulse as its first gold partner, recognizing its deep understanding of and commitment to Squirro’s advanced technology. Synpulse has also initiated the development of new solutions based on Squirro’s AI-driven products and the launch of a bespoke Squirro tech training academy. Both companies have ambitious plans in place for 2018 and beyond to support global expansion, particularly in Asia, where Synpulse desires to be a strong key partner.

“It’s an exciting period of rapid growth for Squirro, and in many ways Synpulse is the perfect partner for us as we continue our expansion,” said Dr. Dorian Selz, CEO and co-founder of Squirro. “With its new tech training academy, Synpulse has already demonstrated a real commitment to Squirro, and it has also shown true understanding of our AI-based proposition and an ability to take that vision to market. With this partnership, we look forward to continued success working together.”

Synpulse employs 280 consultants in its nine offices across the US, Asia, and Europe, and is recognized as one the world’s most agile management consultancies. The past few years have seen a move away from a pure consultancy model to one that involves identifying and implementing the right technology solutions, and the partnership with Squirro extends that model even further.

“Our strategy is to drive growth – especially in FS – by building an ecosystem that enables us to supply the most innovative and impactful products to our clients,” said Konrad Niggli, Partner with Synpulse. “Squirro fits that bill perfectly. It is an agile and dynamic company with some of the best AI-driven data insights solutions available, and our clients have already seen huge benefits from its ability to deliver actionable recommendations from unstructured data in particular. We are delighted to be Squirro’s first global partner and look forward to continued collaboration.”

Squirro recently launched its new advanced AI platform TRINITY that places Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) at the heart of the enterprise, and in July 2017 finalized a $10M Series B funding round, with investors including Orange Growth Capital and Salesforce Ventures.

“Our technology is rich with potential and we are poised for huge growth over the next four to five years as AI and ML become integral to many enterprises around the world,” continued Dr. Dorian Selz. “The partners we work with will be a key part of that growth and with Synpulse it is a true partnership of equals.”
