We are providing leading marketing solutions powered by causal AI. Besides the three standardized solutions above, we offer Brand.AI, Touchpoint.AI or Mix.AI.

We also develop in custom research projects individual solutions that uncover your ultimate business success drivers.

Vast amounts of data are collected today but rarely used. We stop this wastage and uncover hidden underlying causal structure with the objective to derive impactful actions. Just like T-Mobile did with us and then doubled revenue and got from losses to record profits. More in this case study.

Still, we believe in standardization. It enables to apply advanced AI-based causal analyses at scale. It makes it affordable and results simple and easy to understand.


Our clients see us as the leading authority in discovering business success drivers in strategy, marketing, pricing, and sales.

This advantage is grounded in our unmatched competence in causal machine learning and artificial intelligence. We combine sound domain and industry knowledge with the techniques from all disciplines – from traditional methods to AI. We serve reputed enterprises around the global with 2/3 of the revenue coming from clients in North America.

We believe that it needs three things to develop and maintain powerful analytics-based marketing solutions:

  1. Experience: Our consultants and analysts have at least 10 years of relevant experience
  2. Excellence: Any supplier has some special expertise. Customers benefit if specialist suppliers team up in proven solution teams.
  3. Attitude: We see ourselves as “Marketing Engineers”. Scientists are looking for solutions that follow a true theory. Practitioners search for solutions that make sense. Engineers search for solutions that simply work and show real-life impacts.
