Scottish company Know-it wants you all to know that it has officially launched its cloud-based credit management platform.
Know-it, which featured in eWeek UK’s ‘Fintech Companies in Glasgow to Watch’ here, was founded by Lynne Darcey Quigley (CEO).
The fintech startup says its new platform gives businesses the tools and intelligence to automate the way they manage credit risk and the credit control process.
Quigley explains: “By removing the need to access and subscribe to multiple different platforms, our cloud-based platform streamlines the credit control process so you can credit check and monitor, chase for payment, collect overdue unpaid invoices, and more all from one easy to use platform, levelling the playing field for SMEs.”
She adds: “With the launch of Know-it’s platform, businesses of all sizes are now able to Check-it, Chase-it, and Collect-it, all in real-time and without the headache of manual processing.”
