Creditinfo Solutions is celebrating its 10th anniversary

Creditinfo Solutions is celebrating its 10th anniversary. A decade ago, on 1st December, 2006, we opened our doors, not knowing what was about to happen. Since then, we have grown from just a couple of employees to in excess of 100 employees. The company’s initial focus working with just local clients changed after a short period of time.  Creditinfo Solutions, with the support and backing from our parent company, Creditinfo Group,  soon began to successfully sign a number of sizeable deals to deliver credit bureau solutions in Sudan, Tanzania, Afghanistan, Iraq, Indonesia, Latvia and South Sudan. Now, our clientbase spans more than 40 countries around the world.

At the beginning of the month, I saw this really powerful advert from Coca Cola in connection with RamadanI’d like you to spare a few minutes to watch it – I think you will like it.

As a multi-cultural organisation with employees, partners, clients and suppliers in many countries throughout 5 continents, with each company and individual holding many varied opinions, beliefs and cultures, it’s particularly important that we follow one of our 5 company values at all times, RESPECT.  Actually, it’s important that we follow that one anyway, even outside of work, so that we can be a decent human being.

The next Rembrandt – Data and How we Use It

We use a lot of data to improve business life but we haven’t been using data that much in a way that it touches the soul. It is not just a bunch of information and numbers, it is something beautiful where you can make great stuff out of it.

In following intermarten-lootenesting video you can see how a group of analysts recreate a painting of Rembrandt using technology and data. They start by gathering the data, followed by determining the subject, afterwards they generate the features and in the end they bring it to life.  The result is amazing and stunning, if you wouldn’t know it was made with technology you would think it is a real one.

Check out the link because it has to be said, it is amazing what analysts
are doing and can do with data.

On a business trip to Senegal, Reynir forgot to take his shoes.  As it wont do to go to the Central Bank in sneakers, he asked one of the assistants at VoLo if she could help him out, giving her $50 to find him some shoes.  Which she did! Reynir says  these are his best shoes still, after almost 2 years.  Here you can see Reynir putting on those shoes which he has taken to other important meetings worldwide.
