Data is clear and well defined in databases and reference documents.  But when it comes out to work in spreadsheets, system software or devices, it's just a string of digits, and the connection to its source and what it means, doesn't stay with it. 

But what if every number carried its own description locked inside -- the way text carries its font and point-size?  This would change everything - traceability, pedigree and provenance would be a given.  Spreadsheet data would be the most, not the least trusted data in the enterprise.  New systems and processes would be incredibly easy to implement- with better security and data governance than traditional approaches.  Truenumbers makes this a reality.

For business end-users

Truenumbers works right out of the box in finance, engineering or manufacturing where spreadsheets are still an important way to keep business agile. Truenumbers' MS-Office add-in gives users control of changing asumptions and makes MS-Office more traceable and auditable than anything else in the enterprise.


"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

For application developers

For systems developers, Truenumbers is a way to reduce time and overall costs compared with traditional ways or handling data.  It lets you offer more power to your end-users with better interoperability across all of your systems and applications.  

For the Internet of Things

IoT protocols like MQTT or DDS focus on connection and transport, but leave data payloads to ad-hoc JSON or binary data.

Truenumbers is based on a universal data model for measurement including units and tolerance, the ideal payload format for IoT applications.


Located in Boston's Innovation District, True Engineering Technology was founded in 2008 by Allen Razdow,  inventor of Mathcad, the most widely-used math modeling application.   More. . .
