Here are the top 5 tech companies that are changing the way we interact with our world: 

1. Automation Anywhere

The name really says it all. Several ranking companies have named Automation Anywhere number one in overall strategy and product innovation. Its product is automation software designed to replicate back office processes. It also works the front office with customer service call centre automation; customers can now work with bots instead of real people. This company’s main goal is to create a digital workforce. They plan to soon integrate artificial intelligence and replicated cognitive abilities into their products, which will make the software as close to a person as you can get. The product will learn and grow, become better at solving problems as it works both with customers and in the back office of a business. It is said that this company will expand the automation industry and lead the way in AI automation and intelligent digital workforce solutions.

2. Slack

This company is doing a wonderful job of toppling email. Slack makes software for businesses; it is designed to make it easier for workers and departments to communicate with each other. It functions as a one-stop platform with different channels, so that departments can talk to each other and co-workers can collaborate on a project or just keep each other in the loop. Having a department channel on Slack replaces the need to email several people for certain things. These features make this software the most versatile of any other company-based communication platform.

3. Reckon Point

This company is new, but it has been growing at an immeasurable rate recently as businesses are increasingly seeing the value of its products. Reckon Point is in the business of tracking. It makes products that can pinpoint anything a business deems valuable within 1 meter in real time. It uses Wi-Fi and magnetic signals to create an indoor map of a space so that the business can track its employees, assets, customers, and other things. A business can gather data on where customers go in its store the most, where its assets are at all times, and what employees are doing during their work shifts. This technology will save a company so much time and money that it would be silly to not employ it in daily operations.

4. Adyen

This company is taking all the ways you can pay for something online and bringing them together. It can use over 250 different payment methods, from Visa to WeChat pay, and the company is expanding every day. It provides an easy-to-use platform that is secure and safe, and 7 of the 10 largest internet companies are now using Adyen to manage all of their internet payment needs. The company has expanded 80% from last year, making Adyen the most trusted brand in internet payment software.

5. Qlik Technologies

This company is in the business of creating an environment of smart data that every employee can utilize at any skill level. It uses Excel and more to create visual analyses that can be shared throughout the company on any device. The idea is for employees to collaborate, brainstorm, manage, and create, all within an easy-to-use platform.

These are just a small sampling of the hundreds of companies that are brilliantly creating some of the world’s most amazing products and solutions, and they’re definitely ones to watch out for.
