Let’s take a look back at all the things we’ve been up to in 2023!

Integration With QuickBooks

Know-it Goes Down Under!

Due to the success of the Know-it platform in the UK, the team took an exciting step to Australia in August. CEO and founder, Lynne Darcey Quigley and Wendy McMurray, Head of Product, headed down under in August as part of the UK Fintech Trade Mission!  This strategic move aimed to deliver Know-it’s credit management solution to the Australian market, ensuring that Australian SMEs have access to the platform to effectively manage their credit control process.

As part of the trip we also had some pick up in the Australian press with our first feature in the Sydney Herald!

We have our eye on launch down under in 2024!
