What we do
Our work across the analytics landscape is driven by experts with a broad range of analysis, coding, modelling, design, and system-architecture disciplines. We apply these to achieve measurable and outsize impact on real-world problems such as reducing crime, improving healthcare, optimizing manufacturing, and improving customer experiences. Examples around the world include:
- In China, a team developed a route-optimization and scheduling model for one of the largest logistics companies to address its supply-and-demand needs and reduce cost, vehicle demand, and distance travelled. It resulted in a lowered carbon footprint and hard cost savings of 65 percent.
- In the United States, a team simulated mining operations to identify the bottlenecks with the highest waiting times for a North American gold mining client, identifying opportunities to raise capacity by 20-40 percent.
- In Europe, a team enabled a major pharmaceutical client to reduce trial times for a pharmaceutical client by 15 percent (a significant improvement in an industry in which each extra day of a trial can cost the company $1 million), while improving safety along the way.
