Valyant AI internationally recognized with multiple awards for AI excellence from TechCrunch and others

AI company and its leadership recognized as winner or finalist for 10 awards from nine prominent local and national award organizations

DENVER, Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Valyant AI, a Colorado-based artificial intelligence (AI) company focused on customer service in the quick-serve restaurant (QSR) industry, today announced the company or its leadership has been named a winner or finalist for several prominent local and national honors. Valyant AI and CEO Rob Carpenter won a total of five awards and were named a finalist for five other awards.

“Despite stiff competition from other forward-thinking companies, innovative vendors and influential leaders from across industries, we were fortunate enough to be recognized by a number of prestigious award organizations, locally and internationally,” said Carpenter. “Beyond streamlining the customer experience, improving employee efficiency and helping address labor shortages, especially during peak times, our platform’s advanced new enterprise AI capabilities empower organizations to implement high-performing artificial intelligence into their businesses without significant investment — and we could not be more proud or excited that our hard work to develop the platform is being recognized.”

Earlier this year, Valyant participated in TechCrunch’s private Pitch Night for innovative early-stage startups in robotics and artificial intelligence. Selected after a review of hundreds of applications, Carpenter pitched Valyant AI, demonstrating how the company’s conversational AI platform works to industry executives, TechCrunch writers and an expert panel of judges before fielding questions from the judges. By winning the Pitch Night, Valyant AI earned the opportunity to showcase its technology to an auditorium full of founders, students and investors at TechCrunch’s San Francisco headquarters during TC Sessions: Robotics + AI the following evening.
