Data Assessment Solutions

Smart Solutions for People Business

Who we are

Since the company was established in 2008, Data Assessment Solutions GmbH focuses on Consulting Operations Management for IT-Consulting and IT-Outsourcing suppliers as well as internal IT-departments. We have developed a holistic concept founded on scientific methods but with a practical approach to reduce the effort and complexity in managing, making use of and developing skills of employees as well as getting a better insight into critical qualification vacancies in organisations. Today DAS employs around thirty people in its innovative and committed team, based in Hanover, the capital of the State of Lower Saxony.

What we stand for

Our aim is to combine skills data and resource management efficiently. Here we are using a people-oriented approach to provide the right competencies at the right time and place and to make them predictable and therefore identifiable. Our SaaS-solution reduces the internal effort and avoids unnecessary delays and mistakes and as a result of that minimizes costs and risks of projects. We are primarily addressing companies with highly qualified employees and a dynamic working environment. We deal with our customers with professionalism and competence and contribute to their success.

Our corporate culture

At Data Assessment Solutions we attach great importance to working closely with our customers and employees in a spirit of trust. Our motto is along the lines of “Nobody gets left behind!” and we are always ready to listen and lend a helping hand. We provide support and advice during the entire time our software is being introduced and implemented. The customer is always in full control so that their requirements can be satisfied to best effect.
