Who we are:
We are an advanced data analytics company, leveraging AI and predictive analytics to dynamically model and understand the direct impact of consumer behaviour on purchasing decisions. Although our specialism is data science, people are our priority. As such, we have a strong company ethos which is founded on the values below:
Empathy- We believe wellbeing at work and home is non-negotiable; we encourage and embrace a workplace which is tolerant, understanding, supportive and promotes positive mental health.
Diversity- We love building our team of amazing humans from all different backgrounds and believe that diversity and inclusivity collectively strengthen us.
Creativity- All the data in the world is pointless without the ideas and creative skillset to apply it. We believe creativity fuels new ways of working, problem solving and ensures we remain relevant.
Fairness- We want every single decision made by any member of our team to be done with honesty and fairness at its heart. Fairness drives ethical decisions and has truthfulness and integrity at its core. Being fair builds trust.
In today’s evolving landscape, where social opinions are driving dynamic shifts in consumer behaviour, Predyktable firmly believes that through data and AI, we can predict how national behaviour influences what, when, and how people buy goods and services.
By gaining a deep understanding of community needs, businesses can create experiences that are not only positive but also highly relevant to their customers.
We achieve this by collecting a diverse range of information, from global economic and environmental factors to regional indicators such as social sentiment and demographics. We also gather industry-specific signals from trade press to regional events. All these data points are fed into our consumer-behaviour engine, which uses AI algorithms to provide a comprehensive view of consumer behaviour. Combining these insights with historical business data enables us to offer unique predictive recommendations, designed to deliver actionable value for each client.
