We believe that any organisation can and should automate. With Tray, citizen automators throughout organisations can easily automate complex processes through a powerful, flexible platform, and can connect their entire cloud stack thanks to APIs. Today businesses like IBM, Forbes, Lyft, and Digital Ocean rely on Tray to connect and automate data flow between the tools they use everyday.

We've built a powerful, flexible platform that can connect an organisation's entire cloud stack using APIs. With Tray's visual workflow builder our customers create automations to drive their business processes without writing a single line of code.
