There’s a huge pull for automation of bot technology in the market

Ultimate.ai approaches AI as not a solution to customer service itself, but rather a tool for making agents smarter and freeing them up for more demanding tasks. In search of solutions to develop customer service for clients in Finland, the team ran into a serious obstacle — how to handle the relatively complicated Finnish language. There weren’t any technologies available that could’ve done the job, so the founders developed their entire deep learning stack in-house.

Since having to deal with the complicated Finnish language, ultimate.ai’s technology is fully language-agnostic, meaning a language can be added at native fluency in just a few hours. With this key capability, the company is already driving expansion across Europe, with a heavy focus on the Nordics, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK.

Ultimate.ai's founders are Reetu Kainulainen, Jaakko Pasanen, Markus Rautio, and Sarah Al-Hussaini

Ultimate.ai was founded by three childhood friends in November 2016 and launched its first product in summer 2017. Kainulainen serves as the CEO, Al-Hussaini as the COO, Rautio as the CTO, and Pasanen as the CSO of the company.

Already helping 1M+ people with great automated experiences with AI.

Ultimate.ai has partnered with global giants Salesforce, Zendesk, Freshworks, and LiveChat to serve companies worldwide.

They have major customers from fields of banking, telecommunications, logistics and transportation, including Finnair, Telia, Elisa, and Superbet.

A technology that works in Finnish has been easy to scale to other languages. It has been and still is something that sets us apart from the others
