Clisertec Corporation, doing business as Qualis Technology, was founded in 1994. While the company has served many sectors—financial services, medical records, insurance, and manufacturing—our core expertise is in asset management.
With years of experience in quantitative research, risk control, portfolio construction, trading, client reporting, operations, and compliance, it is our belief that early resolution of data quality is paramount to success.
That led to the development of proprietary platform Qualis® Refinery in 1999. With the increasing popularity of the platform over the following years, the company was rebranded as Qualis Technology in 2016.
