DataProphet Named Grand Trophy Winner in the Annual 2022 Disruptor Company Awards 

Cape Town, Western Cape: May 24th, 2022 — DataProphet Operations Pty Ltd announced today that The Globee® Awards has named DataProphet a winner of both the Grand Trophy and a Gold Globee®

The bestowal of the Gold Globee® and the Grand Trophy on DataProphet—by the organizers of the world’s premier business awards programs and business ranking lists—recognizes DataProphet’s global preeminence as a Disruptor Company in the manufacturing space. In their consideration, Globee® noted that in one advanced industrial context, DataProphet’s AI-as-a-Service achieved 2022% ROI within a year for a manufacturer client, simultaneously offsetting its own lifetime Co2. 

DataProphet has created a novel and fully scalable IIoT system architecture (CONNECT) for its multi-award-winning flagship AI product (PRESCRIBE). Its product suite empowers manufacturers to achieve Digital Maturity (i.e., a fully connected factory) while putting the automating intelligence of prescriptive analytics, powered by deep learning discovery—at the fingertips of factory operators. 

DataProphet delivers its AI-driven guidance via an intuitive HMI (human-machine interface) through which factory operators enact preemptive adjustments to control plans and machine setpoints. These course corrections allow them to meet and exceed production KPIs, drive sustainable production, and increase the useful lifecycle of a plant’s high-value production assets.

Because they run on industrial data already owned by the manufacturer, DataProphet’s process optimization and prescriptive maintenance solutions are non-capital intensive and apply across multiple manufacturing verticals. They are also deployed with collaborative value tracking and measurement for guaranteed RoI. For example, one deployment reduced the robotic stud welding defects of an automotive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for an annualized RoI of up to 75x the OEM’s investment. 

CEO Frans Cronje co-founded DataProphet in 2014, inspired by the significant, measurable value that prescriptive AI could bring to local manufacturers as an industry consultant. Since then, his purpose has been to establish this innovative, results-driven company as the leading global provider of AI-as-a-Service for manufacturing. In response to receiving this award, Frans Cronje had the following to say:

“The DataProphet team is delighted to be recognized by The Globee® Awards as a Gold Globee® Grand Trophy winner. Through our AI-as-a-Service and AI-driven product suite, we’re committed to helping manufacturers achieve their Industry 4.0 goals and build a solid foundation for data-driven solutions towards autonomous manufacturing. We believe this recognition from Globee® is further validation that DataProphet is moving in the right direction.”
