Rainbird’s mission is to create automation superheroes capable of transforming their organisations

And we’re achieving it by providing the de facto intelligent automation platform for scaling knowledge and automating human decision-making.

The problem we solve

Organisations that want a trustworthy way to automate complex processes face limitations with current technologies: simple process automation technologies (including RPA) can’t handle complexity and don’t scale well, and machine learning isn’t interpretable and needs a copious amount of clean, bias-free data.

How we solve it

Rainbird enables organisations to increase efficiency, improve customer experience and generate new revenues. It embeds your experts’ knowledge into intelligent automation solutions, so you can scale and accelerate your RPA and automate complex decision-making.

The company

Rainbird Technologies was founded in 2013 by serial entrepreneur CEO James Duez and computer scientist CTO Ben Taylor. Since then, the company has been trusted by the world’s top organisations—from the Big Four to global banks, and governments to the NHS.
