Ormsby Street selected to present at Finovate Spring

We’re heading off to San Jose next week, as we’ve been selected to present CreditHQ at the prestigious Finovate Spring event in San Jose.

Finovate Spring is a demo-based conference for innovative startups and established companies in the fields of banking and financial technology. Held in San Jose, California, the event offers an insight-packed glimpse into the future of money via a fast-paced, intimate, and unique format.

FinovateSpring is a conference on steroids and a great opportunity to see new technologies and upcoming companies changing the world of financial technology.  Victor Smilgys, Keypoint CU

Competition is fierce to appear at this event, with around 70 companies from the financial technology sector showcasing new products or technology over the course of two days – both on stage and on their company stands to an audience of over 1500; including investors, VCs, entrepreneurs, expert analysts and influential press.

Our CEO and co-founder, Martin Campbell, will be presenting some great new features of CreditHQ, including our new bookkeeping integration. Of the integration, Martin said:

When connected to Xero, CreditHQ, like a good financial controller, monitors every customer and every invoice the company has.  Unlike a financial controller, it has access to real-time credit scoring and payment performance information from multiple sources as well as insight into thousands of other small businesses using the product to chase invoices and recover debts.

Combining these data sources and feedback from tens of thousands of users using a patent-pending data-driven approach, the next generation Insight Engine is able to identify cash flow problems and credit risks for your business and highlight the most effective way to resolve them, and present a prioritized action plan to the business leader who can then simply approve the actions that the insight engine has planned.  

As well as highlighting actions for our own customers, our bank partners who provide the product to their SME customers, also gain insight to help them target the right products and support at small businesses customers they historically have very little data about.”

If you’re heading to Finovate, please come and say hi and let us show you how CreditHQ can help all small businesses combat the problem of late payments and focus on growth and success. For 20% off your ticket(s), use code: OrmsbyStreetCompFS16

It’s events and awards season in the Fintech world…here’s what we’ve been up to!

FInovate Trophy

September has been a very busy month so far here at Ormsby Street– we’ve just returned from New York’s Finovate Fall where Martin demoed CreditHQ to an audience of around 2000; ranging from directors of international banks to startup leaders in the Fintech world.

The next stop on our whistle-stop tour of Fintech events this month was Barcelona, where Ormsby Street was chosen from over 900 companies as a finalist in the BBVA Open Talent Finals. Here, we were able to talk to over one hundred attendees from BBVA bank, hear some fantastic keynotes about the future of banking, and meet the other sixteen companies who were lucky enough to be shortlisted. Unfortunately, we didn’t win this time (huge congratulations to both Everledger and Origin Markets who delivered great pitches and won) but we made some great connections and learned a lot about how Fintech’s innovations can work alongside traditional banking methods to improve banking practices for everyone.

We’re now gearing up for our next set of nominations as the award and event season marches on. We’re thrilled to have been shortlisted for The Growing Business Awards (Young Company of the Year), 2015 UKIT Industry Awards (UK Innovation and Entrepreneurship), The Credit Excellence Awards (Newcomer to the Industry) and the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. Hopefully we’ll be adding some more awards to the shelf here at Ormsby Street HQ. Wish us luck!
