Tautona is an intelligent or hyper automation company. We use AI to automate tasks that have traditionally required human cognitive abilities.
Our vision is to redesign the traditional workplace and empower insurance professionals by using robotics and artificial intelligence.
Whilst Tautona’s competitors offer broad automation services to multiple industries, we focus exclusively on the insurance sector, specifically claim processing.
Our library of reusable automated claim processes can be rapidly deployed across various insurance classes and lines of business for immediate benefit.
By implementing our claims automation solutions insurers can bring down operational costs, reduce claim handling times and ensure customer-first experiences.
