Why I started Routine Automation 4 min
” I started with a vision and a dream, and it’s been a wild ride! Now three and a half years later, I can confidently say that we’ve accomplished a lot, but there is still more on our to-do list. “— Pavel Klachkou, CEO in Routine Automation company
My Background – Software Engineer to Bones.
My passion has always been to develop rational, cost-effective systems that are user-friendly, easy to understand, reliable, transparent, fail-safe, and resilient, with the ability to withstand stress testing. Before founding Routine Automation (RA), I spent six years working as a software engineer, honing my skills in Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics AX, and Node.js.
My Salesforce career progressed rapidly, and in just four years, I advanced to a lead position at my previous company. Afterward, I worked as an independent software engineer for a while before seizing the opportunity to start my own company. My work primarily focused on automating repetitive and manual tasks for clients, saving them time and enabling them to be more creative and productive.
I believe this is the core purpose of computers, software, and automation – to alleviate routine tasks from humans and empower them to reach their full potential.
Why is Routine Automation?
Well, as a software engineer, I’ve accumulated a lot of insights and answers over the years. I like to think of myself as a bit of a business therapist, kind of like a tech-savvy doctor who knows where their pain points lie. Businesses are constantly seeking ways to operate more effectively, how stay relevant and remain competitive.
