Who we Are and What we Do
To some we are statistical analysts, to others we are data scientists or statistical consultants. Whatever terminology you prefer, what characterises and drives us is identifying and using the best statistical tools to achieve greater understanding, improve decision making and solve practical problems for our clients.
Our aim is always to deliver high quality products and services for our clients and we are especially happy to help clients develop internal expertise so that they can understand and use statistical techniques themselves.
We have a core team of statistical consultants who are all chartered statisticians. They blend exceptional academic credentials with a wealth of commercial experience applying statistical analyses to real world issues and challenges across our entire portfolio and to all sectors.
