Company History

Syncopation Software was founded by Chris Dalton and Tony Manzella, formerly senior staff members in the Valuation and Strategy group at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Syncopation's mission is to provide its users with intuitive, easy-to-use decision analysis, risk analysis and decision tree-based real option valuation software that enables comprehensive and informed decision making.

The DPL platform was originally a product of Applied Decision Analysis (ADA), a California-based consultancy that played a leading role in the commercial application of decision analysis. ADA was acquired by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in 1998 and Syncopation acquired the DPL business from PwC in 2003.
