Acumen has a user friendly interface for selecting input and output cells from spreadsheet models to build applications as either web-based forms or to be integrated into existing applications. Our system will automatically convert your worksheet into an Acumen model with a webform or an API endpoint.
No code is necessary to turn your model into a web form or system integration point for developers. Use the modelling technology you know and our user-friendly web interface to upload your model, test it and then host in the cloud.
Model calculations and responses happen in real time, so you can connect Acumen to your websites and other data processes needing instant responses.
You can upload your Python and R models into Acumen and they will be run in our highly scalable cloud infrastructure.
Every model is logged and usage is tracked so you always have a record of who created the model, who used it and can view how it was calculated in the original Excel model if necessary.
Use SQL Server, Postgres SQL and Google BigQuery to look up reference data for your spreadsheets, Python and R Model calculations. Once your model calculation is complete, you can push it into your database for storage and further analysis.
Use our drag and drop composite model tool to combine models of any type into a single model which can be accessed inthe exact same way as a single model. For example, combine Excel, Python and R models into a single, highly scalable model.
Acumen connects to Google Cloud Platform’s AutoML system, allowing you to publish your model online, and then run AI models with just a spreadsheet and an Acumen license.
Acumen generates a secure, developer friendly API call for every model. Data is sent using a simple JSON format, allowing integration into almost any system.
Usingour JSON API calls, it is possible to integrate Acumen with any product which supports web hooks. This includes any product compatible with Zapier as well as individual products such as Jotform, Formstack and Salesforce.
We use encryption at rest and in transit to secure your data. All API calls can be secured using HTTP or token based authentication.
Acumen is built on highly scalable cloud technology and is capable of scaling to massive workloads without any additional configuration required.
Acumen is created, supported and managed by Optalitix, a successful AI and technology professional services firm.

Efficient, easily accessible and consistent quoting across their broker network was proving a challenge for this Optalitix client. The underwriting and modelling was largely Excel based and as a result calculations and changes to underwriting could only be carried out by one person at a time. This process was expensive and inhibited scale.
Acumen created a solution with which brokers could integrate, converting the Excel spreadsheets into online quote forms allowing for scalability and agility.
In a short time, the broker was processing over 500 quotes a month via Acumens web-based interface adding over £3m of new business a year.
Missed appointments were proving a headache for this London based Doctors clinic. Not only were they a waste of time but each missed appointment negatively impacted on revenues and financial performance of the business.
Predicting which potential patients had the greatest likelihood for non-attendance in order to contact them in advance with a tailored appropriate message would significantly reduce patient drop off.
Acumen's AI capabilities were able to undertake this predictive exercise as well as create a personalized communications process ensuring not only better attendance but more informed patient visits.
An effective, universally accessible affordability calculator was required by a bank to simplify mortgage calculations for underwriters and brokers. The bank needed to move away from a spreadsheet-based process that was low on regulatory compliance and control whilst at the same time was difficult to monitor and audit.
Acumen hosted the calculation model on web portal and developed a client facing dashboard that enabled the bank to keep track, monitor and audit all applications.
The portal now processes over 1,000 mortgage applications per month with a total value exceeding £50m. This business is carried out with the confidence of knowing that the underwriting modelling and processing can be carried out in a consistent, accurate and compliant manner.
The identification of potential customers that might want to switch energy provider was required by a well-known consumer price comparison web site. The information and data on these potential customers was limited, making identification of savings challenging.
The limited data available was shared with Acumen and merged via Acumen AI with existing insight on current tariffs, best tariffs and likely switch dates. This contributed to the development of a more informed and targeted marketing communications exercise as the customer was able to pinpoint those more likely to save by switching and could tailor energy quotes and messaging accordingly.
Acumen has contributed to the rapid development of the energy comparison platform due to Acumen's rapid prototyping capability.
Spreadsheet users, data scientists and developers who want other people or systems to use their models.
Once the input sheet is setup, it's instant.
We publish dashboards that track API activity and show key measures to track the use and health of your API.
Again, this is instant – make the changes to your spreadsheet model, save them, and then upload the model to Acumen and it is instantly available.
Each API call can be replicated in the spreadsheet model, and any issues tracked in the spreadsheet itself. We also provide helpful messages to troubleshoot any issues.
Yes, a free version of the Acumen is available by signing up online.
Acumen has modules allowing Python or R models to be deployed as well.
Yes, multiple end points can be created for models, and the models can be promoted from UAT to Live with audit tracking of the changes.
Yes, the web form is automatically generated from the API inputs and outputs and allows you to test it.
Yes, a web form can be created from a series of templates which can then be published and used as an i-frame by other applications.
This depends on the plan purchased. Speak to us for advice on the number of API calls expected.
