"Improving efficiency and productivity with automation does not require artificial intelligence. Autto's software platform uses simple automation to help businesses improve their processes where it is not economical to build heavy-duty RPA API-solutions or train artificial intelligences. With Autto's tool, law firms and legal counsels can build their own automated processes with configurable building blocks that can be stacked upon each other to create unique workflows."
