Along with a series of new innovative features and efficiency enhancements, and a unique sharing architecture, ValueXd also offers Space Value Optimisation capabilities based on a proprietary model. Papazian's Space Value Optimisation model was shortlisted as a finalist for the Finance for the Future Awards 2016 (Entry, Announcement).
