We believe finance teams are pioneers, not destined for spreadsheets

What if you could focus on strategy and performance, not 'number crunching' or 'balancing the books'? Many finance teams find themselves bogged down in admin, struggling to report on data and drowning in multiple systems and spreadsheets, meaning they can't focus on value adding tasks which drive strategy and performance.

Our vision is to enable finance teams to achieve more, by doing less. Our software solutions are designed to make the complex simple, enabling finance teams to drive business value, not get stuck with distractions and obstacles.

Ditch the spreadsheets, say hello to possibility.

Market Challenges


Strategic Consulting

Many finance teams are still caught up dealing with number crunching and staff enquiries leaving less time to provide strategic direction to enhance business growth.


Digital transformation

Businesses are transforming the way they work to suit changing employee demands. However, the finance department is often the last to benefit and left with outdated technology that is hard to use and time consuming.


Responding to challenges

Finance leaders often struggle to get an accurate view of data, and understand the financial health of the business, as information is pulled from Excel spreadsheets and disparate systems.


Predicting tomorrow's issues

With increasing market instability and uncertainty, finance teams need to be prepared for future challenges. Not being able to predict your cash position and potential scenarios is a huge barrier to growth.


Regulatory changes

With General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Making Tax Digital already changing how finance teams work, who knows what Brexit and other legislative changes will bring; ensuring compliance is not a blocker to working on strategic activity.
