Wrk, which offers a range of tools including bots, API integrations, and RPA to automate business tasks, today announced that it raised $43.56 million ($55 million CAD) across seed, series A, and debt financing rounds from investors including Real Ventures, Desjardins Capital, Web.com CEO Sharon Rowlands and other individual angels.
Wrk combines automation with a workforce of human experts and app integrations. The company’s building block-style platform is designed to allow users to build workflows with a mix of technologies, including preconfigured bots. Wrk partners with clients to refine automations, only charging for workflows once they’re completed. Human workers complete tasks that Wrk’s robots can’t finish themselves, using an in-browser workstation to gain temporary access to the necessary systems. Wrk does quality assurance testing to ensure that the workflows don’t break, which can happen whenever underlying systems change.
