A SHORT HISTORY
Matt Sakurada and Eric Williamson founded Transdata’s parent company, Blue Flash Solutions, in 2011, with the goal of creating advanced, yet cost effective and easy-to-use business modeling and simulation software.
Following several years of design, development, and testing, its flagship product TRANSDATA® became available on the market, together with support and consultative services. The development team continues to upgrade and update the system on a recurring basis, primarily incorporating suggestions from the install base.
Our evolution and growth to-date have been made possible due to the skill, participation, and commitment of our great team:
