Convergence 10 Operating Principles
What sets us apart from other companies are our operating principles
Early detection business focus
We focus on the early detection and communication of business opportunities and insights by applying a daily monitoring and analytical culture.
Risk and compliance mitigation

Produce data and informational assets with meaning
Our data sourcing is continuous and includes multiple sources from which we create original content that we infuse with meaning. We hold ourselves to a greater than 95% data accuracy standard.

Continuous build of business rules and algorithms
275,000 lines of code have been written and over 350 proprietary algorithms developed that are trained to interact with our databases to identify opportunities for our clients.
Flexibility in our service delivery model
Our service delivery model is flexible and based on a “push-pull” approach based on our client’s needs for consuming data and content in multiple ways.
Use of data science
