    [A full-proof solution for identifying counterfeit airplane parts]

    [Anyline launches mobile scanning solution to quickly and efficiently identify counterfeit airplane parts, anywhere in the world]

    Dateline: [Vienna, Austria. February 24, 2020] — Every day there are, on average, 102.465 flights that take place around the world, landing at over 40.000 airports. When we fly, our safety depends on every one of the 6.000.000 individual parts of our plane being in working order.

     

    What happens when a plane faces issues at an airport outside of their maintenance department? While airlines certainly do their best to repair and replace with OEM parts when defects are found, it is currently impossible to ensure each replacement part is authentic, and not counterfeit.

    Counterfeit parts are a huge liability to the airline companies and are more common than you may want to believe. But with Anyline serial number scanning technology, counterfeit parts can now be identified instantly by technicians anywhere in the world, with only a smartphone.

    Using mobile Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, airline technicians can scan the serial numbers on airline parts, and check these against their internal part database, ensuring that each part was produced by its original manufacturer, keeping counterfeit parts off their planes.  

    In layman’s terms, mobile OCR allows a smartphone camera to read characters on an endless number of objects. When it comes to serial number scanning, our technology utilizes the numbers already imprinted on each part, meaning there is no need for barcodes, RFIDs or new steps added  to the current part manufacturing process. 

    Along with the scan result, an additional image is saved for comparison and the data can then be integrated into the company’s current data management system. Our company prides itself on the speed, security, and accuracy of our character recognition software, all aided by the fact that the complete process is done exclusively on the device, with no need for internet or Wi-Fi data. Not only is this key for data security, but in the case of airline parts certification, it also means that these scans can be done anywhere in the world, no matter how remote the airport or airline hangar.

    [$12 million Series A funding proves huge untapped potential of mobile Optical Character Recognition]

    [European-born innovation heads across the Atlantic as the latest round of funding brings total venture capital investment to $17 million]

     

    Dateline: [Vienna, Austria. January 15, 2020]Anyline, a leading Vienna-based provider of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology working with Toyota, IBM and PepsiCo has raised $12 million in Series A funding to help it to enable more businesses to digitise the real-world. 

    Leading the round is Project A, the Berlin-based Operational VC, supported by Anyline’s existing investors, including Johann ‘Hansi’ Hansmann, Senovo, PUSH Ventures, Hermann Hauser and the Gernot Langes-Swarovski Foundation. 

    Businesses are using Anyline technology to scan and collect analog information, such as identity documents, serial numbers and utility meters using any standard mobile device. This brings significant savings in terms of time and resources and improves data-quality for businesses by eliminating manual data entry.

    This new capital will primarily be used to double the headcount within Anyline, and to open its first US headquarters in Boston in early 2020. This enables Anyline to bring innovative mobile OCR solutions to new international markets and industries, including smart manufacturing, KYC services and fintech.

    “This investment, coupled with the excitement and enthusiasm we have seen from our investors throughout the process, clearly highlights the growth potential Anyline possesses as the market continues to mature,” says Lukas Kinigadner, CEO and co-founder of Anyline. “As businesses move to an increasingly virtual world, it is vital they have access to advanced technologies that enable them to digitise previously analog mediums. We are proud to say European-born technology is helping businesses across the world to reduce the errors, inefficiencies and frustrations that come with manual input. By becoming the market leader in mobile OCR, Anyline plans to be the technology partner businesses need to meet these challenges on the horizon.”

    The company was founded in 2013, and offers specialized OCR solutions that the big tech vendors are not set up to supply. This has attracted investment from influential figures including Hermann Hauser, and a portfolio of international clients such as Canon, Porsche and E.On, as well as national governments and the United Nations.

    Uwe Horstmann, a partner with the lead funder Project A says:Anyline offers a superior solution in the computer vision business, valuable to both the public sector and private customers. Apart from their reliable state-of-the-art technology, our decision to invest in Anyline is very much based on their amazing team. We are proud and happy to support Anyline financially as well as with our operational services.”

    Kinigadner adds, “We accept the pressure of European society to grow its own remarkable technology companies which challenge the dominance of other continents. Therefore, Anyline plans to use this capital to develop its proprietary Anyline Platform, a pioneering AI-powered solution that allows our customers to develop their own tailor-made OCR solutions. This frees them from the previously fixed nature of OCR technologies and ensuring its functionality is only limited by their creativity.”

    To further enable expansion, the firm has established Anyline Inc. in the US, and has hired Bryan Boatner, the former Global Sales Director of Cognex Corporation, as the company’s new VP of Sales and Business Development.


    Boatner says “I am very excited to be joining Anyline, one of the most exciting tech ‘scaleups’ in Europe today as it enters the US market. From my experience in machine and computer vision, I see huge growth potential for Anyline across many different industries, from law enforcement to retail, smart factories and transport, to name only a few. We will be moving fast to build and establish our new US team in 2020.”
