About Us

Our Story

‘Zing’ describes a vibrant energy, or an element of excitement. DataXing was born out of an urge to do something revolutionary, within the business we understand so intimately, as we wanted to bring a ‘zing’ to the way we collected data, provided results to clients, did business, and of course to our careers!


We intended to deliver much beyond what clients are used to getting currently. Armed with years of solid delivery to global clients, the pick of the best talent available, and the emergence of new technologies in the form of AI, we took the plunge and came together to start DataXing.


Our portfolio of services is extensive (and growing) to service the varied needs of our clients. And we are not alone. With our unique ‘Friends of DataXing’ network, we are able to reach more clients and offer more solutions than we could have done alone.


We are here to build assets – tools, proprietary panels, intellectual property – for DataXing and for our clients. Assets which will improve the way we deliver results as well as the quality of output. And we are here to provide world class services in the areas we specialize in – MR, AI and Data.


We are scaling rapidly, and look forward to working with you!
