About Us



Countify is a Paris-based firm developing a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) to automate data-driven business processes.

The company’s origins date back to 2008 when “Anima” was launched. “Anima” is a software designed to run almost real-time calculations on a large scale but using the simple logic of MS Excel. “Anima” is used to automate back-office Excel-based processes at banks. In 2015, the cloud-based version of “Anima” was developed which has be released just recently.

The newly formed countify takes advantage of the strong technical core of “Anima” and brings the features to the everyday Excel user. One after another, new features for the existing set will be released to give its user the opportunity to create their own business-modelling-software simply using MS Excel and countify.
