Know about Servicetrace
Service trace was founded in the year 2004 long before the concept of RPA existed. It’s a German-based company that has been a pioneer in developing software robotics and automation solution for the last 15 years.
Salesforce acquired Mulesoft in 2018 to offer their customers solutions to connect disparate systems going through digital transformations.
“Servicetrace is a good fit for Salesforce, as their applications by default involve users undertaking a lot of repetitive tasks, and developers that build on the Salesforce platform often use third-party RPA tools. Salesforce will be in a position to bundle this into their platform and most likely also offer it at a very low cost” said, Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder and principal analyst, Deep Analysis.
