Stephen Edginton, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Dext, added: “Many companies talk about AI but very few have applied AI to real world problems effectively at scale. Dext has, with world class extraction and accuracy. We process over 250 million receipts, invoices and bank statements to automate and simplify accounting for business. I believe Dext has immense potential and I look forward to working with our team to help all the businesses, accountants and bookkeepers we empower to do more.
“My view of entrepreneurship was formed at an early age as I bootstrapped a business while studying computer science. I was fortunate to work with businesses across industries from solopreneurs to some of the largest on the planet across geographies to leverage technology to do more, AI is the next unlock for business and It’s an exciting time to be at Dext,” Edginton concluded.
