Influential New Clients, Q1-Q3 2020

Influential Software attracts high-quality clients in 2020

2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year for all of us. The current health crisis has meant that many businesses have had to adapt, rethink their strategy for the financial year, and make new plans for the next.

Despite these difficult times, we’ve been lucky to welcome a wide range of new clients this year from local authorities to global travel companies. It’s shown us that many businesses are seeing this as a chance to evolve and stay ahead of their competitors in “the new normal”.

Influential news from Q1-3 2020

Over the past three quarters, we’ve overcome adversity through several innovations — including the launch of a new website for our Salesforce partner practice. This online presence highlights the value of our end-to-end Salesforce implementation, development, integration, support, and training services.

Once again our development team received an award for their outstanding work. The latest accolade is for the .NET team’s new open banking solutions for financial services company New Day. 

We’ve also been keeping up with the digital revolution in finance — this summer we made the move to Revolut business banking. And by becoming a Revolut Business Partner, we’re able to share the business benefits of Revolut with our clients as well.
