Why choose Intellica?

From our many years of data validation, forensic data analysis and data remediation experience we have developed Constellation, the UK’s leading and most innovative pensions data analysis suite. Our strategic/systematic software driven approach to identifying and addressing data issues means our clients benefit from this knowledge and expertise, and we are not reinventing the wheel on every engagement.

Constellation resides alongside your administration system, ensuring data doesn’t leave your secure environment, and presents intuitive cloud-based dashboard formats that can be interrogated to individual member levels of detail.

Our consultants will work with you at every step to ensure you can focus on the detail critical to your scheme’s specific circumstances. This, together with the ability to run the analysis as frequently as needed, provides ongoing deep insight into the evolving quality of your scheme data and the effectiveness of the remediation processes and project deliverables.

Our Core Values:

Precision

The very core of what all stakeholders are seeking to do, is ensure members’ data is as accurate and accessible as possible. Our meticulous interrogation of data is enabled by our proprietary technology, Constellation. The core data validation suite is continually evolving and updated to capture knowledge gained from each individual project undertaken.

Ingenuity

Ours is a creative path.  We have eschewed the typical ‘repeat the ordinary’ approach and chosen instead to continually embed our experience and learning to benefit our clients.  The result of this constantly evolving, organic approach is Constellation, the UK’s leading and most innovative pensions data analysis software suite.

Integrity

We understand data analysis is inherently complex but see our purpose as the agent to deliver the means for improvement in the most straightforward way.  We address the complexity so our clients can be presented with an intuitive summary analysis that enables accurate and timely decisions to be taken.
