About Us

RecommenderX was founded in 2016 with the goal of addressing a recurrent business problem that we noticed in the market. Companies have large quantities of data and they want their businesses to be data-driven; however, the data is siloed, difficult to obtain, and requires significant manual repetitive effort to cleanse and integrate. And all of this before the data is analyzed, visualized and mined for insights. Fundamentally, being data-driven is hard and we want to make it easier.

We are delighted to have brought our Advise platform to the market successfully. We are working hard on a number of great opportunities, blending our experience in machine learning, predictive analytics, data visualization, recommendation and information retrieval to deliver the greatest solutions for our customers.
