NEW YORK – September 9, 2020 —  Kryon®, the leading full-cycle automation solution provider known for its customer-centric approach to robotic process automation (RPA) and process discovery, announced the winners of its customer and partner outstanding achievement awards, and its recently completed “Bot Camp” global hackathon at the inaugural Kryon Automation Olympics on Tuesday, September 8.

Bot Camp Citizen Developers
Bot Camp developers were awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals and cash prizes for developing the most innovative and impactful automation wizards that push the boundaries of robotic process automation. “We were astounded by the creativity, diversity, and scope of the Bot Camp entries we received,” said Harel Tayeb, CEO of Kryon. “This event proves the untapped talent and innovation of citizen developers around the world and the impact they can bring to today’s real-world challenges.”

Hundreds of developers participated in the challenge, creating automation wizards that address issues across healthcare, HR, retail, banking, manufacturing, finance, logistics, media, and E-learning. Entries spanned issues from tracking adverse drug reactions and anti-money laundering compliance to logistics management and multi-language check signature matching.

Participants were required to submit a three-minute video and accompanying written submission demonstrating their wizard and what it could achieve. Submissions were judged according to seven-point criteria—including overall impact, resiliency, and scalability—by an expert panel of RPA executives.
