AnRep3D: a brand new company with a long history!

Yes, we are a very young an small company! Yet, we have a history of over 25 years. This may seem a contradiction, but let me explain.
My name is Guus Löhlefink (too long, too complex so just call me GuusFink at the Internet). Over twenty-five years ago, I founded Scientassist, to present the world an innovation called “Analytical Maps”. The software was able to present all kind of data as coloured areas in maps. Nowadays a Geographical Information System (GIS) will offer the same functionality, but only if one is willing to pay about one hundred times the fee I asked back then.

I learned a lot from my first company and throughout the years I created some other innovations. The trouble was always to convince people that something new, something just invented, could be useful – even if it wasn’t introduced by Microsoft or Google. A lot of other experiments followed and from 2005 on I focused completely on the third dimension: Virtual Reality and stereoscopy, assisted by my oldest son. By now I know I should leave the advanced hardware to other people – even if I’m only working with it as a user. With the help of my youngest son I went back to software again and developed “Virtual Reality Business Intelligence” (VRBI). VRBI offers – simply put – 3D scatter-plots.
A couple of years ago I passed my old company (Scientassist), together with its latest product VRBI to my son in the middle (I’ve got three children, all sons).

3D-graph by AnRep3D

Back then, I already focused at the financial markets and developed a completely new type of graph. A graph, showing the most important figures from annual reports in a 3D graph. Actually the product is not the graph, but the generator able to create those graphs from tables with numbers. To express the functionality of the generator in a very clear way, I chose a name being a concise description: AnRep3D. “AnRep” is short for Annual Report of course and because the gist of the annual report is shown in a spatial way, the 3D was added to point at the third dimension added.

So after more than twenty-five years I’m back again, but this time with a new product and a new company with the same name! From now on I will try and tell you about AnRep3D: what it could do for you and how we are showing the world where we will go. AnRep3D was a Scientassist invention.

About AnRep3D

AnRep3D is the new company, founded after the handover of Scientassist (together with VRBI) to one of my sons. From now I will focus on three-dimensional graphs for the financial markets, showing the main figures from annual reports in comparison. As per 2021 a second product is available: EnRep3D. It is meant to visualise energy. Although the engine is the same, the texts, manual, website and examples (including blogposts) are focused at energy.
