    Deeper Insights is a data science services startup that helps scale-ups and corporates become data-driven, innovative businesses. As a spin-out business that built web data extraction capabilities over the last 5 years, we’re now growing the business independently with a focus on delivering deeper insights through the gathering and analysis of unstructured data to serve industries such as Healthcare, Consumer (FMCG & CE), Financial Services, and BI.

    Our unique tool the Skim Engine powers the discovery, extraction and structuring of data from external sources. It's used to accelerate the development of products and services for clients looking to do more with data. This is a growing space, as more and more businesses realize the value of data to support their growth plans.
