How We are Different

Ben Franklin was a founding father, a scientist, a statesman and an inventor.   In fact, he founded the first volunteer fire department, invented the bifocals and has been on every $100 bill in the US since 1928.  

And as smart as he was, he had a very easy way to make decisions.  He would take a sheet of paper, and draw a line down the middle.  Then Franklin would write all the benefits on one side, and all the drawbacks on another.  We can’t speak to our competitor’s drawbacks, but we can sure speak to the advantages we have over them.

  1. We have been doing predictive models for 25 years with a proven track record of producing models that work.
  2. We do true predictive analytics.  Historical analysis is good for understanding what has happened.  But what has happened is not the same as what will happen.  ROMI gives you more.  We predict what the crime trends will be, and where.  Only then can you get ahead of the curve instead of being taken for a ride along with the curve.  
  3. We give you a dedicated ROMI analyst.  Not a tech support person.  Not an offshore team.  A real data partner who you can call or email and get answers to all your questions.
  4. Our price is less than the cost of the average crime analysts, and a lot less than a data scientist. You get the knowledge of a seasoned data scientist (plus a dashboard, support, meetings, visits and a money back guarantee!) for about half the cost.
  5. We follow a consultative business design. We believe in partnerships.  We stay in contact with you after the contract is signed.  We do proactive research to find things that might be useful to you.  We will visit you regularly.  We offer our help with crime fighting ideas, strategies and campaigns to you.  We build business cases and press releases for you to share with city officials.
  6. We do not sell software.  We sell services.  
  7. We are the only company assigning risk scores to micro-groups of individuals, victims and neighborhoods..
  8. Our background is in criminology, psychology and the behavioral sciences.
  9. We do not make your needs fit a pre-designed system.  We meet your needs with a custom solution.  Don’t compromise when we’re here to meet your needs.

Lastly, we want to make a difference in your lives, your safety and the lives of those in your community.  But we need your help to make everyone’s lives better. Partner with us and create a team where everyone wins.  Call us today for a free consultation, chat with us online or email us at
