Vine Cube is the outcome of a joint venture between two established companies, Web Synergies in Singapore (www.websynergies.biz) and TAH in the UK (www.tah.co.uk). The combination of Web Synergies’ technical expertise with TAH’s business intelligence domain expertise offers wider choices to organisations wishing to extract maximum value from their technology investments and the data within and around their business.
Both companies share common principles and the philosophy that when business is executed well and with just intent, it will benefit those directly involved and the wider community. Through Vine Cube, we have the people, expertise, solutions and over 30 years of history to give you confidence to engage.
Most organisations would list their values here. We prefer to talk about who we are and the principles that guide the way we conduct ourselves. Vine Cube has been built on three founding concepts that provide the parameters for why and how we exist.
What we believe in is important to how we are experienced by those we interact with. We believe in our people, our clients and our partners and the positive impact we can have on each other.
A release from constraint. For our people, this means the opportunity to explore and develop their own potential, needs and talent and for our clients, the ability to exercise choice based on relevant options and desired outcome.
We freely share time, resources, knowledge and individual talents and are open to exploring ways of working differently to the mutual benefit of all involved.
Vine Cube has a team of over 200 people operating across Europe, India and South East Asia, each one dedicated to delivering technical, business intelligence and analytics solutions that make a positive contribution to our clients’ businesses. Our people care and go to great lengths to ensure our clients get a successful outcome that delivers tangible value from the start.
