Business Consulting

Our purpose is optimizing your business, to move it forward. Reaching improvement in difficult circumstances, with little time or high complexity. When non-standard solutions are required, rather than off-the-shelf approaches. In case when high-quality human resources or know-how are unavailable.

Our approach is conducting dedicated research of your special case. Performing in-depth analysis, and synthesis, combined with cross-interdisciplinary insights. We challenge the existing, innovate what is missing, to propose you an opinioned review or effective plan, that stands out. If your business needs to improve, our consulting team can make the difference, to bring about measurable change and solid results.

Data Mining

Our purpose is unlocking your data, to capitalize on it. Mining the valuable bits to underpin tactical decisions and gain competitive advantage. When deeper data patterns and inferences are required, rather than descriptive summary statistics. In case a data scientist or model expert are unavailable.

Our approach is applying data analytics on your files. Extracting meaningful insights from big databases, raw measurements or cluttered indicators. We explore the past, interpolate the missing, and predict the future behaviour, from simple methods to advanced nonlinear techniques. If your business needs to understand, our data expertise can deliver the leverage, to decipher the puzzle with tangible findings.
