About us

DataEQ was founded by a group of data and computer scientists in 2007 to discover new and better ways of connecting the voice of the public to decision-makers. DataEQ uses a unique blend of AI and human intelligence to filter the noise of unstructured feedback for the conversation that’s high risk, high value or urgent. Our proprietary prioritisation method enables real-time mitigation of risk, improved retention and acquisition rates, and superior customer experience. Today, we support clients across Europe, the Middle East and Africa across a range of industries including, financial services, telecommunications, and retail.
