aficionados. Continuously in improvement mode, we relentlessly track the latest

Our advantages



We are crazy about analytics. We’re called aficionados. Kind of like whiz kids. Call us experts, connoisseurs or virtuosos. Or then again champions, top guns or geeks. One thing is certain, we are very good at what we do. Whatever the mandate, whatever the project, we have a resource for that.



Here you’re not dealing with a placement agency or a head hunter. Our resources are branded Faction A. They collaborate among themselves, are well supervised and supported, trained and certified. So you benefit from a higher level of competence.



Faction A attracts and retains only passionate people. Passionate about analytics, passionate about their work, passionate about results. Tellingly, their enthusiasm is contagious. Your team will find itself energized. Whether it is about replacing a team member, solve a specific problem or to take over a complete project, they are always ready to go. Give them a mission and it will become theirs. Right till the end.



Your analytical initiative is wide ranging and complex? You could need proven project planning or management expertise. With Faction A, there’s no worries.

We can take over full responsibility for part or your complete project, whatever fits your needs.
