About us

Meet our Founders

As experienced consultants in the TT&L industry we have met many customers struggling to plan their resources efficiently. We have met Manpower Planning teams who were on the edge of despair, spending most of their time on extensively copying data from one source to another or chasing stakeholders for information. They were either using historically grown Excel documents or tools that did not support their planning needs and processes.

This is why we decided to use our combined 20+ years experience in resource planning to develop a solution that truly solves the problems of the planning teams and enables creation of cost optimal plans. In times of growing complexity our vision was to create a tool that simplifies the planning process and optimally supports the planner.
