How they describe themselves: BCSG was established in 2008 with its headquarters near the Silicon Roundabout in London. In partnership with leading brands such as Barclays, EE, and Santander, we offer a business app market that has over 200,000 small business users worldwide. The app market provides a tailored selection of applications that address the key needs of small businesses.
We have gained international distribution with partnerships in the UK and USA, and have a number in the pipeline, which will increase our UK channels and give us a presence in Canada and Australia.
How they describe their product/innovation: Winning and working on a deal with the UK’s largest Telco has recently demonstrated how we have created a cutting edge platform that allows banks and Telcos to offer value added services to their small businesses. The modular approach taken creates a competitive advantage for us. It means that clients can pick and choose from a menu of features to decide which modules they want to have, making the platform completely ‘tailorable’ for individual clients. The platform also offers further flexibility and customisation that many businesses are looking for.
Product distribution strategy: Through financial institutions, through other fintech companies and platforms
