SKIM Market and Policy Research was founded in 1979 as an industrial market research company and befriended the PC rather early. Thanks to the enthousiasm of the researchers at SKIM and good contacts with Sawtooth, the American developers of software for market research, SKIM started a software division by the end of 1987. Now SKIM Software Division is selling and supporting PC-based software systems all over Europe. Simultaneously, SKIM Market and Policy Research, the parent company, has built up a name applying multi-variate techniques in the research process and now has a strong position in the market for international computerized surveys.
