Founded in 2020 by Gabriel Archanjo and Lorhan Caproni, they realized that technology teams need to automate unique processes to increase efficiency and scale their business operations, so they created a developer-to-developer solution with an interactive tool that generates code.

This platform works in a way that development teams can create custom automation with the help of AI, so to speak: robots that copy repetitive tasks that humans perform on their software / computers in a repetitive way to achieve strategic efficiency.

This platform allows development teams to create personalized automations through Artificial Intelligence; that is, robots copy repetitive tasks that humans perform repetitively on the computer, ensuring strategic efficiency.
