Enterprise Bot Startup Kryon Raises New Round, Continues to Lay Off Employees
Despite securing new funding, the company recently let several dozens of its 160 employees go because of the coronavirus pandemic
Last month, Calcalist reported that Kryon developed an automated system for Israeli health maintenance organization (HMO) Maccabi Healthcare Services, which enables the HMO to process coronavirus (Covid-19) patient data quickly and share it with Israel’s Ministry of Health.
Founded in 2008, Kryon develops virtual agents, or bots, used to automate organizational processes such as paperwork and the filing of insurance claims. Kryon lists Microsoft, AT&T, HP, and Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems Ltd. among its clients.
