Connecting advisers, providers, lenders and consumers for 20 years

Founded in 1995, we are a financial services software house with an enviable track record of providing effective advice & business automation, CRM, T&C and financial planning solutions.

We work with leading financial advisers (at both network and firm level), bancassurers, product providers and mortgage lenders to deliver highly valued solutions across a range of products such as investments, pensions, protection, mortgages and general insurance.

omni-channel distribution

Our successes are based on

  • Powerful consumer-focused financial services software
  • Proven expertise in the regulated financial services market
  • Excellent product design
  • Innovative digital solution design

Since 2011 we have been fully owned by Standard Life and, although we do deliver some supporting services to them, we operate independently.

We have a targeted range of enterprise-class omni-channel financial service products, primarily geared around supporting the delivery of advice. These products are in daily use across the UK and Ireland by banks, networks and large advisory firms.

We enable our customers to make valuable, personal relationships with their clients, using an omni-channel distribution framework that sits at the heart of their business.

We deliver an immediate benefit that becomes long-term, ongoing value

Our focus is always on the customer / client relationship, because we believe that the creation and growth of those relationships is key to the success of any business.

As well as small on-demand tools, we create and deliver some highly complex, involved software products that can span and transform the entire production and distribution processes of an organisation.

Technology changes can be difficult to implement, and frequently the adoption of new solutions is more complex than the system design and integration due to the large number of people impacted. We provide expert assistance, working alongside our customers' change management teams, to prepare, streamline and simplify the adoption process so that their users start to benefit immediately.

Because our solutions typically deliver more capability than is initially visible, we also work with customers to understand and capitalise on those additional capabilities as part of their ongoing business strategy.
