International expansion reinforces steady development of credit risk software company
29 January, 2014 - London, UK - Tinubu Square, the trusted source of credit risk solutions for trade credit insurers and businesses, experienced a 12% increase in turnover in 2013, continues to improve its net earnings and expects to grow exponentially during 2014 following expansion overseas and consolidation in both the UK and France.
The news comes as Paris-based Tinubu announces that it will be opening a new office in the USA in the first quarter of the year to serve the expanding North American market. This underlines the importance of overseas sales to the company which last year accounted for over two thirds of its total turnover.
The company will shortly be announcing the appointment of a new IT Director, a crucial role which will help Tinubu Square to accelerate its plans for new products and enable new features to be added to its core solution, the Tinubu RMC (Risk Management Center) cloud-based platform. In addition, five further new appointments are expected to be announced through 2014, all of which will reinforce the research and development team at Tinubu.
Michael Feldwick, Head of UK and Ireland at Tinubu Square, said: "Whilst there have been some market improvements over the last year, our growth is really testament to the success of our business model, the strength of the product, the building of solid relationships with both brokers and customers and maximizing overseas opportunities. In the UK, we expect to experience further growth of around 15% in 2014, and possibly more if the economy continues to rally, but we are delighted that we are on such a positive trajectory."
Tinubu Square opened two offices in Asia in 2011 and 2012, in Singapore and Mumbai, and also has a UK office, based in London. With several contracts already signed in the USA, the opening of a new office located on the ground will enable the company to address a mature market in search of innovative approaches to trade credit risk management.
In 2013 Tinubu Square has become the official 'Supporter of the ICM Credit Managers' Index'. This is calculated quarterly by the Institute of Credit Managers using input from credit professionals and provides a detailed insight into the thoughts, attitudes and levels of confidence of UK credit managers. The link with ICM will provide the Tinubu Square brand with significant exposure to the Institute's membership.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
