Flexys featured in ‘15 Exciting Fintech Companies to Watch in 2020’
Tech Nation, the UK network for ambitious tech entrepreneurs, has recognised Flexys Solutions as one of the 15 most exciting fintech companies to watch in 2020. The report notes that UK investment in fintech businesses stands at £4bn, second only to the United States, with the UK’s strong financial services sector inspiring much of the innovation.
Flexys was formed in 2016 by Chief Technology Officer, Brian Smith and Chief Executive Officer, Jon Hickman along with the support of former Talgentra/Tallyman MD Brian Dewis as Chairman. Growing from just three employees, Flexys has gained customers in the motor finance, financial services and energy sectors and looks set for a year of outstanding growth.
CEO Jon Hickman said “Flexys is immensely proud to receive this recognition. We created our cloud-native debt management system from a clean sheet to make it secure, fast and smart with significantly lower maintenance costs. The cloud-based nature of our solutions means that our clients benefit from the continuous delivery of new features and functions without the need for costly and prolonged upgrade projects.
As the Covid-19 lockdown has tested resilience and brought the limitations of incumbent legacy systems to light, Flexys is experiencing an upsurge in interest from lending organisations who want more control over their systems and are seeking to modernise and future-proof their infrastructure.”
Flexys is part of the booming technology sector in Bristol and is based at the Future Space innovation hub in the city. The company has a strong local investment ethic and works in partnership with the Artificial Intelligence department at The University of the West of England via an Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnership, building advanced analytics into its products.
