We remain eternally grateful to our amazing customers for their support and the world-class customer ratings they've awarded us, and are beyond excited for the future."
"There are powerful drivers of automation in the marketplace, including the explosive growth of software stacks - with enterprises using 100+ applications per department. There's also the growing need for digital transformation for seamless customer experience and operational flexibility. And there continues to be relentless demand for automation-related roles, particularly in marketing and operations, to put business users in total control of increasingly complex processes," said Alex Clayton of Spark Capital. "Tray.io is the absolute best-in-breed for empowering line-of-business users in any role to become citizen automators that integrate and automate thousands of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications - and unlike legacy solutions - does not require developers to use."
