Priit Kongo, CEO of Net Group, stated that Net Group is already renowned as one of Estonia’s most innovative business developers and software service providers. The merger with Outl1ne will further expand the company’s service portfolio and expertise.

“Through this merger, a synergy between the experiences and knowledge of both companies is created, allowing Net Group to offer comprehensive business and software solutions that cater to the growing demand for advanced and forward-looking technologies. Artificial intelligence is the fastest-growing technology affecting every industry,” said Kongo. He added that the primary goal of the merger is to significantly deepen specialization in generative artificial intelligence (AI) and large language models (LLMs) technology.

Olari Tõnison, CEO of Outl1ne, added that the merger enables both companies to take the practical application of language models to a new level and strengthen Outl1ne’s position. “We believe that, together with Net Group, we can fill a gap in the market with our innovative solutions. We are confident that large language models can make businesses more efficient, increase their competitiveness, and encourage companies to invest in artificial intelligence,” said Tõnison.

Tõnison further noted that many companies possess vast amounts of data with untapped potential. Skillful utilization of large language models can maximize the value derived from collected data, streamline business processes, boost revenue, and save resources. “Together with Net Group, we will assist companies in finding the most suitable LLM solution and seamlessly integrate it with their existing software,” explained the Outl1ne CEO.
