Fremont, CA: SKAEL, the San Francisco-based technology company offering an advanced automation platform for creating and deploying digital employees, has declared today that it has closed $4.1 million in a Seed funding round. Firms including Bonfire Ventures, Buffalo Ventures, RIDE Ventures, Daher Capital, Backend Capital, StratMinds VC, and others participated in this round.

"In a very short timeline SKAEL has built a technology platform that enables our customers to help their people work smarter by automating repetitive, time-consuming tasks," stated Nadimpalli. "The hyperautomation segment is ripe for disruption as current Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solutions are good for businesses that solely rely on applications talking to applications. We're confident our Digital Workforce platform offers a far more user-centric approach to automation."
