We are a DeepTech software editor offering powerful optimization modules for operationsplanning (vehicle routing, loading and packing, operations planning & scheduling…).
Coming from the academic world with strong industrial collaborations in various business areas,we observed the gap between what academic research is able to deliver and what is currentlyin use in the industry. That’s why we aim to provide tailored technological tools for the mostcomplex optimization problems, in order to do more and better while consuming less.Based on prescriptive analytics and mathematical optimization, our solutions significantlyimprove decision-making, relying on more than 25 years of experience in OperationsResearch at the MIT, the University of Cambridge, the Inria and the CNRS.
Our designation « Powered by ATOPTIMA » indicates that our clients are usingan optimization solver of unique and internationally recognized quality, performance and reliability.
Our technologies rely on 25 years of scientific background to bring the most qualitative and disruptive solutions to our clients and partners. The excellence of Research combined with the agility of the Software-As-A-Service!
We want to have a real impact on the socio-economic world through technology; this is part of our DNA. We gather passionate people with the desire to make our know-how useful for society.
We make DeepTech accessible by providing ergonomic user interfaces with a seamless integration. Our technologies are meant to be scalable, intuitive and business oriented.
We aim to « do more and better while consuming less » to insure a more sustainable growth. Together in targeting a better use of resources thanks to optimization intelligence!
