Physical properties, stock prices, satellite imagery, spectrum allocations, sensor reports, or product inventory - data for people with a job to do.  Truenumbers lets them capture, share and work with data, at any scale, with no I.T. science project.

A truenumber is a portable, secure and self-describing representation of a single fact.  Structured for computers but readable and writable by people, the more truenumbers you have, the more you capture about your world, in your own words.


Truenumbers can be used anywhere - big data in the cloud, program code, documents, GUIs and spreadsheets, because you can't only live in silos and dashboards of enterprise systems.  Having individual numbers carry tamper-proof meaning and authority in documents and spreadsheets is itself a major innovation for governance and data quality, like the blockchain is for transactions.  

Truenumbers has proven to boost productivity, traceability, innovation and security by enhancing, not constraining the way you work, and has already helped Government and Fortune 500 firms develop military sensor-based systems, track aircraft maintenance data, and make critical spreadsheets trustworthy and more powerful.

For the user community

A truenumber in Excel is a cloud-backed, secure fact that can't be tampered with or misunderstood. Spreadsheet data stored in a truenumbers repository goes from the least, to the most trusted data in your enterprise. Easy to deploy and learn, you can begin improving productivity and reducing spreadsheet risks immediately.


"Any IT executive whose company uses spreadsheets prolifically should be looking at Truenumbers -- any industry — including education, financial services, government, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, retail, and so on — can benefit from it.
      -Marc Halpern (Gartner, "Cool Vendors 2014")
