Client Testimonials


"Elder Research provided our data science team with stellar customized R training and it was obvious they were well prepared with our data. The trainers were engaged, technically knowledgeable, and incredible communicators, which we thought would be a hard combination to find. We could sense their goal truly was to empower their clients and be unbiased data science partners, instead of trying to sell us a product."

"I highly recommend Elder Research. Very few quant people possess the total package:  excellent credentials, strong statistical and data mining skills, the initiative to anticipate client needs, compelling and concise communications, strong client management skills, and a results-driven mindset. They've led numerous projects that have helped our company maximize marketing efforts and understand our customers better. In all, the quality has been superior and their client-service attitudes are tremendous.“

“I would like to express our appreciation for the exceptional work that Elder Research provided on the IRS Fraud Detection proof of concept task. The objective of the Fraud Detection proof of concept task was to demonstrate to the Criminal Investigation (CI) Division of IRS that data mining technology could be used to identify individual fraudulent tax returns automatically. The final data mining model increased the IRS hit rate by 18% and decreased the false positives by 43%, resulting in 50% decrease in workload.”

“After more than 18 months of working closely with Elder Research on a government funded research project, I continue to be impressed with the depth of expertise and innovation they bring to the project.  Elder Research was originally brought in to provide a particular capability, but due to their excellent performance (under budget) and in-depth expertise, their role constantly increased as the project matured. Elder Research  has proven to be an exceptional technology partner for this complex project and possess state-of the-art capabilities that can and will contribute to the strengthening our nation’s security.

“Elder Research brought the expertise we lacked to solve our problem. Once they got a handle on our processes, they were able to look at some of the data differently, in ways that we had never considered. They gave us insight as to why certain populations leave us. This let us run more focused marketing campaigns with better results. In effect, they showed us a smaller pond with more fish in it.”

“[Using RADR], we are able to assign risk scores to whatever it is we are measuring. We are able to model every single contract or every single transaction or every single whatever it is that’s being investigated. In the past, you’d have to do a statistical sample or you may have to wait until someone calls to look for something. It puts a lot of information in front of the investigator.”
