Our Vision

When it comes to building digital products, technology is only one part of the equation. Bespoke products that create meaningful engagement start with the understanding of the people they are meant to serve.

That understanding comes from a combination of on-the-ground first-hand knowledge and insights from behavioural economics into how people think, decide, and take action.

With artificial intelligence and data, we can build on this understanding to create bespoke, people-first digital products. For smarter, more powerful, customer engagement.

What We Do?

We support financial institutions, primarily in emerging markets, and help them extract real value from their data.

Strategy & Consulting

When building a product development roadmap, research and design is only one half of the equation. Getting buy-in across departments or branches and the entire C-Suite can make all the difference in the success of a project ― and it takes real expertise to get it right. We can consult and coach your teams on every step of the process, to make sure they share a single vision and can work together to achieve it.

Product Development

This is the core of what we do, and we can develop an intelligent bespoke product that’s the best fit for your needs. From data wrangling to prototyping, to product specification, development, testing, product launch and impact measurement, we’ll help you turn your big ideas into the smarter tools that make a difference for your business.

Research

The value of the information lays on its potential for knowledge. We produce knowledge for decision makers through research. Formal and robust methodologies are applied when answering complicated, ambiguous and above all important business questions. Share with us your theories, doubts, evidences and thoughts. Results are always provided with reliability metrics so decisions are taken in optimal conditions.

Data Science Kickstarting

Are you already convinced that you need a strong push in building your data science practice in-house? You need to bring the knowledge inside your organization to avoid being too dependant on external solutions? Big changes start small. We bring the key expertise to start and accelerate the development of an agile data science team within your organization.
