Data Assessment Solutions – Solutions
for IT Services and Consulting

Who we are

Since its foundation in 2008, Data Assessment Solutions has been breaking new ground in the efficient use of skills and employee capacities in dynamic growth industries – especially for IT services and consulting companies. We combine many years of industry experience with in-depth expertise in machine learning and data analysis. Through the intelligent use of existing data, we achieve significant increases in efficiency and provide our customers with a reliable source for all information on employees and projects. Today, around 30 employees belong to the innovative and committed team of Data Assessment Solutions GmbH, which is based in Hanover, the capital of Lower Saxony.

What we stand for

Our aim is to offer customers measurable added value. This requires integration into processes that have a direct impact on sales or costs. Only the linking of skills with data on employee utilization, daily rates, sales opportunities and project profitability provides relevant insights. We do not only offer our customers a software solution, but also help them to identify potential for optimization and to make profitable use of existing data.

Our corporate culture

Most of our employees have a mathematical-scientific background. Our corporate culture is shaped by this. We enjoy solving complex problems. Thanks to our close contact with science, we are up to date in research and development. This is also reflected in our software. We do not rely on buzzwords, but on intelligent employees who independently find the best solutions.
