• What makes Sophia unique?

    The aim has been to make Sophia the very best software solution for breeders, associations, trainers, drivers, owners and pedigree researchers and experts as well as trotting enthusiasts. The name "Sophia" comes from the Greek word for wisdom as the primary purpose behind the program is to increase the knowledge of everything related to pedigrees.

    The program is in itself very to use. Since it contains so many possibilities in terms of searching, analyses and information that can be a bit challenging and overwhelming, we have made every effort to make sure the user interface is easy to use and understand, and we have also put a lot of time into writing a good manual and also making instructional videos on Youtube where you can see and hear how to do something on the screen.

    We have ideas on how to make Sophia an even better in the future and will work continuously to improve Sophia.

    Below you find the highlights of our pedigree analyses software.
