Default Anybody heard of 'Slope' software?

I kept getting messages from this company on LinkedIn claiming their software to be 'built for 2018 not 1999', will 'make pricing actuaries lives incredibly easy', and ' cloud-based' 'maintenance-free' etc... almost sounds like those midnight infomercials on TV

I would be interested in finding out whether anyone had experience with this software and what the feedback would be, does it really live up to its claims?

"Cloud-based" and "maintenance-free" sounds like it's an SaaS deployment, which may or may not be a good thing.

Also sounds like BS...and yet....

they would have got my attention if they had added 'block chain' and 'big data' in their description...

You're forgetting Artificial Intelligence. What is pricing software without AI.

Hi there! Sorry we didn't see your post earlier. A lot has changed since you originally asked this question, but I thought I would quickly reply and let you know that our customers are actually seeing results that back our claims. We've had customers reduce their overall modeling process times by 90% or more.

Feel free to check us out again! We've even gone through a full rebrand since you originally posted, and went through the MetLife Digital Accelerator powered by Techstars, as well.

And for the other comments, we are indeed a SaaS application, but don't currently utilize blockchain or AI... yet.
