A New York office automation startup says it’s working on a $300 million office automation system that can automate almost everything from moving furniture to getting coffee, even when the technology is not working.
Kelty, a New Zealand-based company, has said its office automation software can automate everything from pulling out papers to getting ready for work, even if it doesn’t know how to do all that.
The company, which sells the technology under the name Kltytron, is developing the software as part of a $2 billion round that it said it raised in December.
Kltytrons goal is to help people move from their desk to their living room, according to the company’s website.
It can handle up to 10,000 documents a minute and has been tested in some of the world’s most popular offices and hotels, including Paris, London, Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul and the United Arab Emirates, the company said.
Kyltytronics, which is based in Auckland, New Zealand, has a team of about 200 people who work on the software.
A spokesman said the company has been working on the technology since March and is currently using a prototype of the software in a large New York City office.
Klimtech, which was founded in 2009 and is based outside New Zealand and Australia, has been a leader in office automation since it began using its software in 2006.
The software is designed to help workers move between their desk and living room and also automates office tasks such as opening a coffee maker or moving documents around.
The office automation technology, which has been used in the U.S. for years, is called SmartPillow and can be used in a variety of ways.
Klevy says KltyTron can handle all the tasks that an office automation specialist, such as a moving desk assistant, might need to do in a typical office environment, from opening a file drawer to taking photos.
Klty Trons software can also work with an existing office system, such like a desk manager, to automate tasks that a person does regularly, such a pulling papers out of a folder and placing them in a box, Klevy said.
