Start-up update: Ferndale's Logicdrop announces new platform success

Ferndale-based technology startup LogicDrop has announced that its partnership with a Detroit area automotive technology company has resulted in a groundbreaking new vehicle simulation software platform.

The Ferndale company's Logicdrop Studio is a business rules platform that allows users to customize data analysis. The platform cuts weeks of computing time down to minutes, saving customers money and time while also allowing for a more customizable experience.

The company provides physics-based automotive performance and fuel economy simulation technology to automotive makers, who then use that technology to analyze performance and efficiency metrics. Their software is used by government agencies for vehicle emissions regulations and validation purposes. 

The new partnership is expected to give the company a significant edge over its competitors.

"We've provided every major capability in the Logicdrop Studio platform," KimJohn Quinn, co-founder of Logicdrop, says in a statement. "From incorporating rapidly changing scientific models to executing numerous complex computations on dynamic data, we are transforming a complex, error-prone process into a manageable, streamlined system. We are excited to see where the platform will take the industry next."

It's great news for Logicdrop, a company that Metromode profiled in September 2016. While in September the company was still gearing up for the release of Logicdrop Studio, it's not even a year later and they can already announce a major success.
