About Ortto

Ortto (formerly Autopilot) was founded in 2012 as Bislr Inc., by three Australian brothers, Mike, Chris, and Peter, while living in Bondi Beach, Australia. After years of pain and frustration stitching marketing tools and data together for some of Australia's leading tech companies, they recognized a clear gap in the market for marketing automation software that is as easy to use as a whiteboard, that plays nicely with other technologies, and can be tried and bought right over the web.
