Afinium, the British company that provides marketing and sales software platforms for the global financial services industry, today won the prestigious and much sought after Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
Starting in 2012, the company has achieved rapid international growth primarily in the North American market and has during that time secured numerous Fortune 100 clients as customers.
Matthew Hooper, CEO said, ‘The UK has always been at the leading edge in many areas of technology, and Afinium has achieved a marvellous start in getting multi nationals to install our cloud- based platform so they can market their products more effectively, and ultimately sell more. We could not be more delighted with this award.’
Robert Paterson Chairman added, ‘Winning this prestigious award is confirmation that despite the size of a business, the skills and talent that reside in Britain compete very successfully on the global stage. This award will raise our profile and be an asset in our drive for new business in new territories.’
Afinium Ltd is a cloud based technology business that offers multi-channel sales and enrollment platforms that emulate and improve on face-to-face selling of highly regulated insurance and financial services products. It currently licenses its ‘Stream’ product to Fortune 100 Insurance companies in North America, and is rolling out internationally.
A unique feature of Stream is its self-learning algorithms that can personally engage each prospect based on their demography, profile, behaviour, and responses, and guide them through the product selection process in the most compelling manner and in the shortest time.
