Polonious was founded in 2005 as a Case Management Solution based on the knowledge and experience of both founders. Polonious was originally conceived based on private investigations, but was designed to be future-proof, adapting to changing IT capabilities and market opportunities with little structural change to the code. Polonious has since expanded into the 4 main markets listed on the ‘Industries’ page – insurance investigation, banking, private investigations, and education. Polonious has also adapted to other challenges such as IP infringement investigations and charities.


Polonious, in case you are wondering was the trusted advisor to the King of Denmark in Hamlet. During the play, he had a conversation with his son that resonated to both partners at the time of foundation. The mainstay being:

This above all- to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Whilst this sounds a little bit lofty, Polonious, our team and founders all endeavour to be true to ourselves, each other and our clients.
