Who we are
We are very proud to announce r4’s selection as one of only four 2019 Gartner “Cool Vendors” in AI Core Technologies. We believe this designation validates our technology as unique and leading-edge, and our “business outcomes as a service” strategy as the right one. r4’s model-based method of understanding markets and demand makes XEM the world’s first cross-enterprise management engine.
