What do we offer?

We offer services ranging from on-site support for development and devops team via quantitative modelling, documentation and model validation up to creating production-ready R solutions based on Excel-, Matlab-, etc. prototypes and helping IT departments deploying and scheduling them.

In every service we provide members of our team can count on the expertise of the others, e.g. our Software specialists can ask for the help of the Mathematicians for algorithm optimization while our Quants and Actuaries can count on help with any software-related difficulty they encounter.

In the past we have helped major Dutch insurers rewrite their prototype quant models from Excel, Access and VBA to R, as well as improve the already R-bases solutions to take advantage of parallel programming and deployment to a server grid. We have also helped shape the R architecture of our clients who all faced the same question: how can R be a production environment and an ad hoc analysis platform at the same time.

We also offer top quality user interfaces and front-end solutions to all our clients. Additionally, all our products can be made available in Dutch, Hungarian, Polish and French besides English. These translations, if requested, shall be done by native speakers with quantitative background.
