Our passion: Turning data into answers to our customers' business-relevant questions

Separating data from systems. To answer our customers' questions with data - that is our passion. Our software products "CostChecker", "PSI - predictive saving identifier", "3D CADminer", "2D CADminer", "CLASSifizer" and "DIC - data integrity checker" are proprietary developments.
