MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neostella, a global hyperautomation company headquartered in Milwaukee, WI announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire Chicago, IL-based Work-Relay, a next-generation Business Process Management software that provides cloud-based workflow automation capabilities across complex business processes and projects.
Founded in 2020, Neostella, which provides business consulting, automation, and implementation services, has grown to over 100 employees with offices in five countries while quickly expanding its range of services.
With a rapidly growing number of companies adopting enterprise-wide automation initiatives that includes Robotic Process Automation (RPA), cloud-based application integration services (iPaaS), and custom application development, intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS) serve as the platform to coordinate them. Adding to existing partnerships with RPA vendor UiPath (NYSE: PATH) and IPaaS vendor Workato, the acquisition of Work-Relay enables Neostella to add powerful workflow automation to their comprehensive set of offerings. Among the very few providers equipped with a full suite of business automation capabilities, Neostella offers a convenient, single-vendor option for organizations looking to drive efficiency by building or scaling end-to-end automation practices.
“Work-Relay's technology, client success, and personnel are the perfect fit with Neostella given our vision to help clients achieve operational excellence through hyperautomation,” commented Matt Lautz, Founder and CEO of Neostella. “Work-Relay’s native Salesforce integration combined with Neostella’s experience within the Salesforce ecosystem fulfills an opportunity to address the needs of 150,000 Salesforce customers who seek the benefits of automation without the hassle of complex development,” said Lautz.
The acquisition reinforces Neostella’s ability to deliver even broader value to the $860B hyperautomation market, projected by Gartner to grow at 12.3% CAGR through 2027. “Work-Relay has grown from a custom SaaS application to an Enterprise Work Automation platform serving thousands of users in public and private enterprises across four continents,” said Kramer Reeves, CEO of Work-Relay, who, along with his team, will join Neostella. Work-Relay clients include large enterprises as well as small and mid-size companies who use Work-Relay software to automate work, empower workers, and achieve operational excellence when faced with complex, time-sensitive business operations, processes, and projects.
There are few conditions to be satisfied before closing, and therefore Neostella and Work-Relay expect closing to occur within a few weeks.
