About BrilJan

Customer comes first

Competitive rate

Easily accessible

In 2016, I started BrilJan. My name is Jan Schepers (1969) and I have worked as a senior researcher at various companies including KPMG, ING and Telecompaper. Here I gained experience in retail, food, telecom, energy, automotive, real estate, media, leisure and construction sectors. I maintained contacts with the partners and managers of the companies.

In recent years, I have conducted research into family businesses, the gambling market, fintech, blockchain, subscription economy, consumer markets, the legal profession, the travel industry and the energy marketFor larger projects, I work together with other researchers, while remaining your single point of contact.

BrilJan means: looking through Jan's glasses. I started playing chess at the age of nine and I still do that a lot today. Playing chess requires focus and thinking ahead. Good research requires that too. In my research work for your company, I make full use of these qualities.

Pros and cons of working from home 9/2020

By means of a questionnaire survey among nearly 5,000 European knowledge workers, it has been investigated how people experienced working from home. More than 57% encounters more advantages than disadvantages, and 10% feel the opposite. No travel time is seen as a major advantage and meeting no colleagues as the main disadvantage.

Adoption of open banking 


A survey of over 1,000 professionals by Yolt Technology Services found that open banking (PSD2) could play a central role in the economic recovery following Covid-19. The use of open banking could lead to better customer experiences, improved efficiency, more robust transactional and information security and even increased revenue.


Costs of working from home


If anyone will work from home one additional day per week after Covid, PwC estimates that the costs from the effects could be as much as € 1.5 billion per year. The impact on the economy will be caused by less collaboration, decline in team cohesion, absenteeism, lower productivity, stress and burnout.
