Quantium.  Established ~20 years ago, Quantium is now a global data services company whose heritage stems from the super and insurance industries. Great success story and very inspiring.

11. What’s the most interesting or funniest moment that’s happened in your company’s lifetime?:

We have some very funny moments at Novigi! One of our company values is ‘banter’ and we are always able to have a laugh with our team and with our clients. The funniest/most interesting moment would have to be when one of our partners (who has been known to be competitive) snapped his bicep while trying to win a company ten pin bowling event….he even continued bowling with his other arm!
