FireStart GmbH, a collaborative all-in-one ecosystem for automation, today announces that they have entered a partnership with AKOA – Another Kind of Automation, one of the leading automation providers that leverage the benefits of AI and RPA, to deliver scalable, end-to-end automations by combining Intelligent BPM (iBPM) and RPA.

Combining BPM and RPA is a powerful unit and opens new opportunities for visualizing, structuring, and monitoring automation initiatives end-to-end. BPM ultimately improves processes and create dependable digital workflows connecting people, data, and systems, but on its own does not include fully automate tasks. However, iBPM in combination with automation tools like RPA, can trigger automated processes to perform rule-based, data-intense, and business tasks in collaboration with BPM workflows.


“FireStart will give us the possibility to connect the business processes (BPM) with processes automation technologies like RPA , combining them seamlessly into daily workflows. This will enable workflows to be started while having an overview of the status and further pending tasks. The combination will lead to a more transparent automation and business process operation, easier management, and even more time savings for our customers.” Andreas Schmelzer, CEO AKOA Austria


“We are very excited about our new partnership with AKOA. They have automation in their blood and really understand how to translate the automation journey into a long-term digitalization strategy for our clients. AKOA and FireStart both share the same obsession with customer success, user experience and speed of delivery. Therefore, I am super optimistic that we are heading towards a very successful partnership with them. Robert Hutter, Founder & CEO
