June 15th, 2021 - Elop's AI business unit Simplifai has entered into a strategic
partnership agreement with the license specialists company Crayon AS.
Crayon is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, and with more than 2000 employees in

vendor-agnostic IT consultancy.
As part of the agreement, Crayon will include Simplifai's AI-driven systems in
its offering to support public and private sector clients in facilitating
automatic receipt and management of e-mails and user or customer enquiries,
including documents that needs to be managed.
"We are very happy to get Simplifais solutions easily available for our
customers in both private and public sector. We already have about 70% of
Norwegian Public Sector, and thru this partnership Simplifai gets access to this
market." says Michael Larsen, Sales Manager at Crayon.
Public sector growth strategy
Entering into the agreement with Crayon is a part of Simplifai's strategy to
grow revenues from public sector.
In February, Simplifai signed a breakthrough agreement in public sector with
National Archives Services of Norway which has generated several requests from
"Documentation requirements in the public sector are strict, and the volume of
correspondence and documents that are exchanged between municipalities and its
"customers" - their local population - is almost incomprehensibly high. Hence,
Simplifai's AI-driven technologies, which help our clients to automate these
processes, could play an important role in modernising the public sector and
free up public servants' time," says Bård Myrstad.
