Abstract We present a program for the numerical evaluation of multi-dimensional polynomial parameter integrals. Singularities regulated by dimensional regularisation are extracted using iterated sector decomposition. The program evaluates the coefficients of a Laurent series in the regularisation parameter. It can be applied to multi-loop integrals in Euclidean space as well as other parametric integrals, e.g. phase space integrals.
