"Being named a Cool Vendor is a great step for Building Blocks. This proves that our transformation from consultancy to ServWare has been a successful journey. I am happy with this recognition and extremely proud of what our team has achieved. The creation of our unique Blocks structure started in 2015, because we wanted to minimize repetition in our work and had the strong will to continuously focus on improving the added value of our solutions for our clients. With our technology we contribute to a sustainable data science strategy for our clients, not only in the Netherlands but also increasingly in other countries.” - Alexander van Eerden
