This is how we started

When we recognized the need to integrate enterprise applications with Business Messenger in 2017, an idea began to take shape: We recognized the need to automate processes on the very platforms that businesses were already using for collaboration. At that point, our team formed to pursue a common goal: The proliferation of collaborative workflows - automated processes with a special focus on human involvement.

At a time when the market for iPaaS solutions was still in its infancy, we conceived the idea of developing a prototype app that would encompass both workflow automation and team collaboration. This marked the birth of the first GroupLotse. As time passed, integration platforms emerged and successfully tackled numerous automation challenges. However, to this day, none of them offer a comprehensive solution that fully addresses the needs of team cooperation. This conviction fuels our unwavering belief in what we do. As the sole provider of collaborative workflows, we empower our customers with our extensive expertise, seamlessly combining automation, integration, and collaboration into a cohesive entity.

We change the world through
collaborative workflows!
