About us

We may be a tech company; but it’s the team that makes it all happen. With that in mind, we wanted to give our awesome people an awesome place to work! So we created a comfortable and modern workspace, within the historic Alphabeta building in the heart of the city, surrounded by other like minded tech companies.

" In 2007, I sat down in my kitchen with nothing-but my laptop, a cup of coffee, and a big idea. Fast forward 13 years and we run the largest, most advanced wholesale-only network in the United Kingdom; with a 200 strong team of the industry’s best.

Our business is only successful because of the incredible people we have, who constantly push the boundaries with their ideas, hardwork, and passion.

Forget the network or the portals—without the best people, none of that even happens. And that all comes down to culture and people wanting to be a part of our story.”

Tom O’ Hagan, Founder and CEO

Our brand values

We put people first

Our team is our best asset. All of what we’ve achieved is down to the incredible passion and hard work of our people. It’s why our Partners want to work with us—we invest in the best people for the best results.

We ask: what if?

It’s the question that drove our founder to create the business; and it’s what drives us to push industry boundaries and challenge the status quo today. What if things were even better? What if impossibles were possible?

We don't stand still

We do more than theorise; we see how things can be improved, then we make it happen. Our network prepares businesses for the future. And we’re constantly looking for ways to better meet and exceed our Partners’ needs. We never stop innovating. It’s how we stay ahead of the game.

We believe in Simplicity

Our technology is both powerful and easy-to-use. We keep things simple and accessible so that Partners can customise to their hearts’ content.

CSR

We are very proud of our charity partnership with Restless Development, an international charity that aims to empower young people across the world. As now, more than ever, the world needs young people’s leadership to solve its greatest challenges.

Every year they train, mentor, nurture and connect thousands of young people to lead change. Some are social entrepreneurs, setting up businesses to provide for their families and create jobs, others are youth advocates, campaigning on issues like gender equality, HIV and many others.

No matter the issue, their young leaders work to achieve the same goal: to improve their lives and the lives of people in their communities.
