Growth Journey

Having been recognised as one of the 50 fastest growing tech companies in the UK by Deloitte – the fastest growing fintech outside of London - Access Systems has enjoyed growth of 73% from the period January 2016 to January 2018, taking a leading role in driving innovation in the financial technology landscape.

The payments landscape is changing at a faster rate than ever, with new innovations giving organisations a rapidly expanding number of ways to pay. New payments services are in development and existing ones are being extended to include new features. The use of disparate systems and applications across the finance and treasury function can create unnecessary complexity, risk and inefficiency. By connecting these systems, The AccessPay platform empowers finance and treasury professionals to achieve their goals.

The investment was based on the shared vision both organisations had of building a strong and vibrant tech community in Manchester. CEO Anish Kapoor has set out the business’ ambition to double its size this year with AccessPay planning to use the investment to significantly increase head count at its central Manchester offices, and is looking to recruit another 50 people this year to support its rapid revenue growth.
