Semine was founded in Norway in 2015 by the Norwegian serial entrepreneur Robert Kristiansen. At that period, the majority of companies were downsizing due to the oil crisis, and he realized the labor-intensiveness of the finance function after seeing how enterprises were not able to downscale these roles. With a background in human/ machine and software development in particular Robert then developed his vision of bridging humans and technology to remove repetitive tasks.
His mission was to use artificial intelligence (AI) to drive radical innovation and hyper-automation within the accounts payable space and beyond. Robert and a team of user experts then started what should become SEMINE - the intelligent platform for automation. Semine uses self-developed AI techniques and has created an end-to-end solution for AP based on a hyper-automation platform they build last 5 years. It contains both an AI engine as well as an orchestra studio to streamline financial processes.
