“These tools were designed out of a need to fill gaps in process and more importantly, improve our customer experience,” says Francesco A., Co-Founder of ACE Marktplace and Vice President of Operations at Policaro Group. “This is our vision of a smarter, frictionless customer experience. We’re thrilled to have Kimoby take that vision further and grow these solutions to serve the industry at large.”

Since then, they have been dedicated to developing an instant messaging platform.
