About us

With a vision to evolve, good people and the right technology, we solve
your most complex problems, creating social and economical value.

Why we're here

We’re here to apply the advancements in AI, Data and Digital towards creating greater value through
driving efficiencies in the operating theatre of Enterprises, Start-ups, NFP’s and Government. Over the years
we’ve seen significant investments in technology undertaken by both public and private sector, with no
genuine value created. We feel this is largely driven by a poor understanding of what is the “real problem
we’re solving” combined with traditional approaches to data, solution architecture and the digital experience.

We saw a need for a different kind of approach to solving problems, and we knew it would take a different
kind of company to build it – so, here we are…

Our Ethos

We own the outcome
Our job is not done, until our Clients haven’t realised the value they originally set out to achieve. We continue to work with our Clients to ensure they realise their objective / ROI.
We always build solutions for the end-user
We apply human-centered design techniques to prioritise the needs, preferences, and experiences of the end-users. We’re focused on creating the world’s best user experience for working with AI & Data, one that empowers people to ask and answer complex questions without requiring them to master querying languages, statistical modeling, or the command line.
We focus on an accelerated delivery model
We deliver results in weeks, not years
We understand every problem from first principles
We break down every problem irrespective of complexity into basic elements and then reassemble them from the ground up – we’ve learnt it’s the best way to unlock our creative potential and move from linear to non-linear results.
We employ industry SME’s to lead projects
Our delivery teams are led by Industry SME’s who have actually been involved in operations, and do not advise you from a mere theoretical / academic point of view.
We seek long-term partnerships
We aspire to become the trusted advisor to our clients, where we assist them in solving their most complex problems, and assist them to transition to an era of AI driven decision making.

Where we’re going

OptiSol has grown organically from a four-person shop in 2007, to 450+ staff and offices in the US, UK, India, Dubai and Australia. We commenced operating in Australia in 2008, as an offshore delivery partner before incorporating our own Australian business in 2020 and setting up our AI R&D lab in the Sunshine Coast.

We’ve hired the best in the space of AI, Data and Digital to grow our Australian venture – with a clear objective to partner with clients ranging from Staff-ups to Enterprises and NFPs, and solve some of their most complex problems.

We are striving to create a future where public institutions, commercial enterprises, and non-promt organisations can leverage AI to operate in alignment with their intended purposes—fulfilling entrusted mandates, providing value to customers, and efficiently distributing aid to those who require it the most.
