Value your connections

Rainmaker PRO estimates the latent valuation of your current connections by comparing their past performance to a future one. A unique operating system of algorithms produces bespoke rainmaking reporting that evaluate the existing referral network.


Evaluate business

Rainmaker PRO identifies your rainmaking probabilities. This is by organising the connections of both individuals and groups into an action plan unlocking hidden fee earning potential that is so often overlooked due to lack of time and process.


Isolate best practice

Rainmaker PRO enables you to interrogate the source of previous success to create action plans that replicate them. This delivers a bespoke rainmaking model for the firm and the individual lawyer that is based on the needs and requirements of the firm and the market place.

  • C4DI is one of the UK’s leading technology incubators. A challenge many of our businesses have is a lack of a focussed approach to business development. To help with that, Bob Spence has delivered a number of business development programmes at C4DI based on the 5next method that helps build a network of connections in a structured fashion.

    The software 5next has developed supports this approach and I believe it is a groundbreaking method of business development. In fast-growing businesses, time is rare and so any connections need to be developed in an effective and efficient way.
