Karl Smith, Director of Decision Point said:
“As a management consultant I have remained technology agnostic for my entire career. This is the first technology platform I have seen with such fantastic and untapped capability.”
“We have a unique opportunity with Decision Point to utilise Veriluma’s tried and trusted technology to solve the data overload and insight shortage business leaders and executives experience daily.”
Elizabeth Whitelock, MD of Veriluma Ltd commented:
“We are excited by the potential of the European and American markets for Veriluma. With committed and connected individuals at the helm, Veriluma is in a strong position to capture new client engagements and identify new situations our software will underpin.
We envision Decision Point will develop and sell industry specific solutions that blend data with human expertise and intuitions to avoid the data overload most business leaders experience when making decisions.
Our goal is to create a market of direct clients who gain a competitive advantage through our consulting led solutions. This approach will create a repeatable marketing and sales approach and, thereafter, consistent, predictable revenues from sales of the same solution type.
Building an application specific focus with Decision Point allows the Veriluma Software team to continue researching and developing the software as well as expanding its footprint inside and outside defence.
We are delighted to welcome Karl and Paul to the team and look forward to delivering successful projects, solutions and outcomes for clients and our shareholders.”
