OUR HISTORY

The Spark

As marketers, we were frustrated with the lack of effective tools to turn data into actionable insights that drive business results. iQuantism was born in the quest for better solutions.

Humble Beginnings

From a 200 square foot windowless office, we delivered the first reporting project that led to a performance driven website re-design.

Rapid Innovation

Across clients and projects, patterns started to emerge. Based on this, we recruited talent from top engineering schools to develop multiple tools that rapidly process data and drive actionable insights. Harnessing the power of big data, we further expanded our tools to reverse engineer search engine algorithms, predict trends and simulate real market scenarios. The result for our clients was rapid business growth, budget optimization and profitability.
