Our story

Numea, the second chapter of SolutionStat

Why Numea? Numea comes from the amalgamation of Numbers, the essence of our work, and of Numéa, a small paradise on Earth and capital of New Caledonia where we were called to go in 2012 for our expertise. This place reflects that data science is far from being monotonous and boring for us.

Originally called SolutionStat, the company was founded in 2010 and specialized in statistical consulting and training. Ten years later, the heart of the company is still the same, but the emergence of new needs in the market has led to the arrival of new expertise.

Formerly focused on data science, our rationale now becomes data enhancement, ranging from : Modeling, visualization, insights, strategic advices, training… Our offer is diversifying to better support you in your business decisions.

Our mission

Expert in data enhancement driven by true collaboration, with the sole objective of finding the right solution to our clients' needs.

Our toolbox contains everything we need to exploit your data: from predictive models to artificial intelligence.

For us, the method used is not an end, but a means to obtain usable information from all types of data. We help companies to interpret these insights, to appropriate them and to integrate them into their decision making. No fluff. No bluff.

Behind the artificial intelligence we provide is human intelligence.
