After a presentation about software for forensic investigators – at one of the Dutch regulators – the idea arose to join forces. The aim was to develop functional, user-friendly research software to combat fraud and crime. From the start, there has been intensive collaboration with the customers from the very beginning: the experts from forensic departments. The knowledge and experience they bring in is bearing fruit. And we are still joining forces with our clients to continuously improve the software.
A stylized owl has been incorporated into the Noctua logo. The choice for this bird of prey as a symbol for our research software is taken consciously. Crime takes place on a large scale in a shadowy, underground world. As nocturnal animals, owls have excellent hearing and good vision in the dark. As investigative software, Noctua plays a similar role: hunting prey that engages in crime and fraud ‘out of sight’.
The high competence of the software developers makes a hierarchical organizational structure superfluous. Our experts are given complete freedom to do what they do best. Of course within the guidelines of a shared vision where they can count on the necessary support.
To enable in-depth and high-quality research against fraud and crime with the help of technology and thus create a safe society and strong rule of law.
To develop high-end research software that optimally supports organizations in their fight against fraud and crime.
