On her new appointment, McMurray said, “having worked in a start-up previously and thrived on the challenges and responsibilities it brought along with the excitement it created, I was keen to become involved and join a strong entrepreneurial leadership team. Lynne’s passion and enthusiasm are as refreshing as contagious and were key factors in my decision. The innovation and creativity within the team have led to a solution that not only supports SMEs but solves a real issue for businesses both locally and globally. I have always enjoyed learning about innovative technologies/processes/markets and will use this to improve personally and professionally to ensure Know-it continues to grow and reshape the credit management space”.

The tech sector is one of the fastest growing, and the support in place for start-ups to develop is second to none. It is amazing to see the growth across the Scottish fintech scene. Over the next five years, this sector will continue to grow and become an even bigger player in the global market as new and emerging technologies provide further opportunities for individuals and businesses.”
Speaking about the platform, Wendy continued, “It is truly one of a kind as it solves a real issue for any business facing the current economic climate. Having researched the market before joining, I couldn’t find another platform which offers the same service Know-it does. It truly is unique in its offering, from checking and monitoring customers to chasing payments and collecting unpaid invoices. The key benefit to businesses is that you don’t need to switch from one application to another. Everything business owners and financial professionals need, is in the Know-it platform.”

She has come from a company where she has had more than 20 years of experience, and this told me a lot about how she values commitment and, of course, her character. She understands the fintech start-up journey, which is hugely important to the success of our company.”
