Occasionally, you will be searching for the needle in a haystack and your proactive attitude will help you come up with smart solutions that help you match all transactional data from many different sources., That's very well possible, since we have been working under the radar for more than 4 years, building a highly reliable and certified Transaction Assurance Platform, while banking on the philosophy that quality comes before speed.

We have developed this platform together with our fast growing clients and our mission is to radically change the way Finance, Control & Audit professionals think and work: build continuous trust on a transactional level.

Our DNA? We value:

* Individuals and Interactions over processes and tools
* Working Software over comprehensive documentation

* Responding to Change over clinging to existing plans (too much)
* Accuracy is key always ask why, no assumptions
