No automation,

no growth

We believe in development, so we decided to take the first Step and innovate Automation as a Service by creating the first open-source automation platform.
Designed for optimum efficiency in industrial contexts and based on a modular design, Step simplifies and integrates the processes of all professions and teams participating in automation initiatives.
Step includes a distributed platform for the execution of massively concurrent automation scenarios and an abundance of integration plugins.

Automate, Consolidate, and Collaborate.
