TNO is the largest research organisation in the Netherlands. Working on innovations and solving societal problems such as energy transition and a healthy and safe society is central to them. Since the autumn of 2021 TNO has been using Imagine.
“We contacted Pointlogic thanks to a recommendation from someone who already works with the program,” begins Martin de Jong, corporate controller at TNO. “We were looking for a program that could calculate scenarios in simulations to see what the effects of certain choices would be. We wanted to avoid making a choice that later turned out to have an undesirable outcome. We had two important cases that we wanted to let loose in this model to see what influence they have on the net salary developments: the change in the mobility policy and the new pension legislation.”
“At the end of spring 2021 we started talking to Pointlogic, in the summer everything was installed and implemented and we started training. There we came across a small flaw, which was nobody’s fault. Part of the training was given online because of the COVID measures. You look at the screen where someone is demonstrating everything and think ‘yes, very logical, I understand that’. Until you have to do it yourself and it turns out to be more complicated than you thought. You just have to work on it yourself to get the hang of it.”
