For the MME startup “United Robots”, 2020 concluded on a real up as the company made Deloitte’s 2020 Sweden Technology Fast 50 list of fastest growing tech companies. The Malmö based content automation company was listed at #37 with a 582% net revenue growth over the past 4 years.
2020 was a tough year for everyone in media, with the pandemic putting additional pressure on an already challenged news publishing industry. However, the accelerated digital transition resulted in increased demand for automation. Newsrooms across Europe and North America saw the potential in using robots for routine reporting in order to free up journalists’ time to do the qualified stories – the stuff that drive reader engagement and revenues.
Says United Robots CEO Sören Karlsson: “2020 did not turn out the way we expected and the United Robots team certainly had our share of challenges. But as we’re heading into 2021, it’s with optimism for an industry with a strong sense of purpose and drive to keep delivering its important journalism. Automation supports the journalistic mission and publishers who don’t at least consider using robot texts for basic reporting are missing out.”
