Our Mission

To provide the fastest, most scalable, and easiest to use R packages focused on solving business and financial analysis problems.

Our goal is to solve problems by creating “a better way.” We develop professional-grade, open-source software for use with the R statistical programming language. Using this software, we provide consulting services to help users apply data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to solve business problems.

Our Motivation

During an analytical endeavour, have you ever asked yourself, "Is there a better way?"

We believe there is, and it involves the R Programming Language. We provide solutions in the realm of business and financial analysis through the development of fast, scalable and user-friendly open-source R software.

We seek to assist users in using our Open Source R Packages to solve business or financial analysis problems. Our focus is working with clients that:

  • Have an interest in applying data science techniques in the realm of business and finance
  • Are seeking a competitive edge by implementing machine learning or artificial intelligence
  • Are interested in using R and potentially transitioning from SAS, Stata, Microsoft Excel, or any other language/platform that is not R

We believe R is the right analytics approach for several reasons:

  • Open-source
  • Over 12,000 packages employing the latest statistical & visualization techniques
  • Web-based interactive applications with Shiny
  • Integrated tools for reporting including Rmarkdown
  • An active and welcoming R Community
  • Highly scalable

Our Values

  • Customer Focus: We hold the client above all else
  • Strategic Partnerships: We are not looking for a one-time job, but rather to grow with clients in a collaborative way
  • Leaders in Analytics: We are experts in a variety of data science tools
  • Creative Problem Solving: We use a combination of innovation and creativity to help clients solve problems
