applied analytics to your industry

smart cities centered
Our smart city solutions are based on two core products. Our TDX platform handles data in the cloud; and our secure data hub technology handles sensors and devices. Together they provide the foundations of a smart city and address the two ends of the smart city problem. How to securely and flexibly integrate with sensors and IoT devices, and secondly how to provide management tools to combine, analyse and contextualise data.

The main goal of a smart city is to optimise city functions and promote economic growth while also improving the quality of life for citizens by using smart technologies and data analysis. The value lies in how this technology is used rather than simply how much technology is available.

care centered
Health and social care providers are under huge pressure to deliver more and more with limited funding. An increasingly ageing population, the coronavirus pandemic and complex data sharing arrangements are just some of the drivers of a need to create advanced tools to improve efficiency, capacity and response times.

Our secure data sharing platform is ideal for bringing together data from multiple agencies whilst preserving privacy and handling complex permission levels. We apply state of the art analysis to information already held by local authorities and health bodies to provide insights that help better manage resources and plan for the future.


The Ageing Society Grand Challenge aims to put the UK at the forefront of the world in technologies, products and services to help support healthy ageing.

nusiness rate centered

Business rates provide more than half of Belfast City Council’s annual revenue which is used to fund services, from bin collections to leisure facilities. The timely and accurate collection of rates income, as well as the maintenance of an up-to-date register of businesses in the city, can be challenging.

Belfast City Council


NquiringMinds is one of only two SMEs to feature as a case study in the UK Governments £4.6 billion Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund Whitepaper, for our innovative work with rates collection for Belfast City Council.
Selected by UK Gov to develop data sharing platform for local government.
Business rates are a valuable source of revenue for many local authorities, and form the foundation for many public services. The ability to ensure that business rates are maximised and that rating collection systems are as timely and complete as possible is critical in generating income.

Our Business Rates Analytics helps local authorities to strategically manage and plan the collection of business rates. Sophisticated AI and statistical techniques are applied across the business rates datasets to identify anomalies, for example, properties that are likely to be misclassified for business rates. These can then be prioritised for further investigation leading to an increase in the accuracy of information held and a reduction in uncollected rates. The system provides tools for workflow management, inspection prioritisation, and mobile workflow.

local economics centered
High Streets have been in decline for several years and the COVID-19 pandemic has shocked local economies further, the full effects are yet to be felt. Sectors most reliant on face-to-face interactions – hospitality, transport, and entertainment have experienced worse impacts than those able to continue operating with social distancing rules, such as financial services and agriculture. As such, every local economy is different, and councils will need to plan their local recoveries that best suit their places and communities.  TDX economic analyser applies a well developed portfolio of AI and data modelling techniques to a range of data sets to provide tools and actionable insights to economic planners. It combines historical and current business rates data with other data sets such as companies house, planning application and mapping information to better understand the impact of interventions and plan diverse, robust and vibrant local economies.

Given the unprecedented economic impact of the pandemic and uncertainty about the future direction of the economy we cannot afford to be complacent. As with previous economic shocks, councils have benefited from considering different scenarios and best practice that can help their places to recover and thrive

Ministry of Food Processing Industries

Data analytics and IoT devices are some of the tools being used to reduce spoilage and increase yields in agriculture. Processes that rely on periodic human inspection, over reliance on chemicals and timely interventions fail frequently because of resource restraints, lack of expertise and the speed at which crops can be spoilt. By combining data sets and real time on the ground measurements from IoT devices we can optimise processes and reduce spoilage.
