What's that number? Where did it come from?
What if every number could carry its own description locked inside -- the way text carries its font and point-size? You'd be confident about data anywhere you see it, not just when locked in a back-office database.
A truenumber is a small packet of information that looks like an ordinary number or fact in a spreadsheet cell, program code, web or connected device. It contains secure "DNA" encoding its meaning, origin and context so it stays fully self-described and traceable wherever it goes. It can pick up annotations, pedigree and provenance as it travels, and every truenumber is keyed to a copy in the cloud where collections of them can be managed for search and collaboration.
For business end-users
For finance, engineering or manufacturing where spreadsheets are still an important way to keep your business agile, the Truenumbers MS-Office add-in gives users control of changing asumptions and makes spreadsheets 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."
