At the ERA of digital disruption a common topic for discussion is whether or not businesses can benefit from the use of the software.
While the majority stays positive to new technologies, there are those not convinced yet about software’s impact in daily operations and overall performance.
Back in 2004, when Comidor started its journey and entered in this field, a huge gap was there to convince how technology can’t handle everything in a business.
This huge gap spotted and the idea of Comidor started flourishing. The main idea about Comidor was to be an agile software, which can adapt in any situation depending business needs, is easy to the use and must manage to increase business productivity, through collaboration and automation.
We’ve also found that needs grow very fast, following the technology evolution (ie social media). From 2004 to date, Comidor team’s goal is to provide to its costumer’s today, features that will be needed in the future.
Today, Comidor can be described as a low-code platform which can help businesses with their collaboration and automation.
