Let's get started!

Our journey so far

When we started Bardeen, our mission was clear: to empower businesses to automate repetitive tasks and streamline workflows with AI-powered agents. Over the past year, we've hit some incredible milestones to make this vision a reality.

Each milestone is significant enough to deserve its own post, but what's the culmination of all this work?

Bardeen, the first Business Ready AI Agent

We engineered Bardeen for reliability, security, and ease of use at scale. It's built to handle thousands of concurrent automations, features enterprise-grade encryption and compliance, and offers a natural language interface that makes automation accessible to everyone.

In short, businesses can trust Bardeen to empower their teams so they can do more with less.

Here are a few examples:

How Deel improved targeted prospecting by 3X

The Deel sales team uses Bardeen to automate repetitive tasks like enriching prospect data from LinkedIn, Clearbit, and Apollo. By leveraging Bardeen tools like the LinkedIn Data Scraper, SDRs and AEs can obtain crucial information like employee count and job openings for hundreds of companies in just a single click, saving hours each week.

Miro Boosts Competitive Analysis Efficiency by 60% with Bardeen

The Miro team transformed their competitive analysis process using Bardeen’s automation tools, saving over 10 hours weekly. By automating the monitoring of competitors’ blogs and generating detailed reports, Miro achieved:

10+ hours saved weekly on manual data tracking.

60% efficiency boost.

Increased accuracy and reduced errors.

Strategic focus on high-impact projects.

“Bardeen’s automation has revolutionized our competitive analysis process,” said Tomas Dostal-Freire, Director of Strategic Programs at Miro. This shift allowed Miro to focus on strategic insights, enhancing their market position.

Kearney Supercharges Research Efficiency by 50% with Bardeen

Kearney, a global management consulting giant with over 5,700 employees across 40+ countries, has drastically improved its research efficiency using Bardeen’s automation tools. The integration has led to:

10+ hours saved per web/data scraping task.

30-450% efficiency boost.

Enhanced accuracy in data extraction.

Strategic reallocation of time to client-focused initiatives.

“Bardeen has significantly reduced the time we spend on monotonous tasks, allowing us to focus on strategic analysis and driving value for our clients,” stated Saad Haque, Senior Research Analyst at Kearney.

With Bardeen, Kearney’s team automated web scraping, developed custom playbooks, and seamlessly integrated the tools into their existing systems, transforming laborious manual processes into streamlined, efficient workflows.

Capability, reliability, and support

At Bardeen, we've been laser-focused on building a platform businesses can rely on to automate their workflows at scale. Here's how we made that happen:

Features and integrations

AI-powered building experience: We've completely rebuilt the experience of building automations with Bardeen. For simple tasks, language is all you need. But now complex workflows can be crafted using our conversational builder where you can iterate with language and test while you build.

This makes building powerful AI automations easy and accessible for everyone in the organization.

Proactive suggestions with Automation Assistant: Bardeen learns from your usage patterns and suggests relevant automations at the perfect moment.

New integrations: Bardeen integrates with a wide range of business tools, including Microsoft 365, most CRMs (Salesforce, Hubspot, Salesloft, Pipedrive and many more), and sales outreach and enrichment tools. Also, don't forget that our AI Agent can interact with any webpage through your browser.

New tutorials, resources, and guides: We’ve put together some amazing resources and examples to help you and your team to get started with sales automations. Here’s the highlights:

You can follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn to stay updated with new releases.

Collaboration, sharing, and centralized billing

You can't be Business-Ready without team collaboration capability. Earlier this year, we added the ability to form teams and manage playbooks, billing, and users centrally.

This means users can share best-practices and standardize automated workflows to improve productivity across the entire org. With Bardeen Teams, you can:

  • Easily share playbooks and Autobooks with team members
  • Manage user permissions and access controls
  • Centralize billing and credit usage across the entire team
  • Ensure consistency and standardization of automated workflows
  • Collaborate on building and optimizing automations

Admins have full visibility into team activity, usage, and performance, making it simple to manage automation at scale. Plus, with consolidated billing, you only pay for what your team actually uses.

Bardeen for teams empowers organizations to harness the full potential of automation, streamline processes, and drive productivity across departments.

Cloud workflows offer scalability and reliability

While most Bardeen workflows can run locally on your machine, we understand that businesses often require high-volume workflows to run 24/7 without interruption. That's why we now offer the option to run your automations in the cloud.

Our cloud offering ensures that your critical workflows remain operational around the clock, even when your local machine is turned off or disconnected.

We provide enterprise-grade security, scalability, and reliability. Our team has built a system that can handle thousands of concurrent automations without compromising performance or stability.

Security and our SOC2 Type 2 certification

Security has been at the core of our company since day one. That's why we made Bardeen a Chrome Extension where all data is stored locally by default and only leaves your machine for necessary workflows.

Earlier this year, we obtained our SOC2 Type 2 certification. Over the course of multiple months, auditors observed Bardeen's security practices, handling of customer data, and technical infrastructure to ensure we not only implemented comprehensive security controls but also maintained them effectively over time.

Business and enterprise customers get access to our Compliance and Security Center where they can monitor our security and compliance posture 24/7.

Support and solutions - the humans behind the AI

As good as our AI is, sometimes you need a human expert to assist you. Over the past 12 months, we've built a world-class team to support our customers with solutions engineering, customer support, and training.

If you’re interested in getting a custom solution built, you can do so here.

We've also invested heavily in comprehensive documentation and resources, like our new and improved help center.

What's next?

AI Agents will fundamentally change the way we work. By automating repetitive tasks and empowering employees to focus on high-value activities, businesses can unlock unprecedented levels of productivity.

At Bardeen, we believe that AI won't replace people; rather, users who know how to leverage AI will be able to do a lot more in less time. We plan to democratize access to automation and make it easy for anyone to build and use AI Agents for automation.

Whether you're a small startup looking to punch above your weight or an enterprise seeking to streamline processes across your organization, Bardeen has the tools and expertise to help you succeed. With our Business-Ready AI Agent platform, you can trust that your automations will run reliably and securely, 24/7.
