|New tech startup Hito is set to revolutionise the FinTech services industry|
|Tuesday, 25 October 2016|
Hito, a new global technology company providing pioneering solutions for the financial services industry, officially launched last week at the iconic Shard building.
Many of the industry’s top influencers attended the launch, which showcased Hito’s new brand and vision for the FinTech arena. With the strapline “Release your potential”, Hito is offering pioneering solutions that give businesses and employees the ability to re-imagine what can be achieved throughout the working day, through their unique SaaS technology.
“Hito” means people in Japanese, which formed the main theme for the event, featuring exclusive Saké tasting with one of London’s top sommeliers and some exquisite Japanese food prepared by a third-generation sushi master. The event exuded quality and clearly demonstrated that Hito are here to shake the industry up and carve a new, exciting path that the financial services industry has been crying out for.
The core drive behind Hito, aims to encourage fresh, smarter ways of utilising technology across the revenues and collections field, as well as inspiring a new culture based on heightened levels of trust and security.
The company’s Hito Edge product, a debt management solution that optimises available resources and streamlines business processes to create huge efficiency savings, has already received a UK IT Industry Award for: Best Technology built on a mobile platform for their mobile self-service devices in 2012.
Hito has headhunted its team from some of the world’s largest IT companies, including CGI and Unisys. Leading the business as Chief Executive is Jamie Waller who, having studied at Cranfield School of Management, Stanford, and the London Business School, is determined to inspire a fresh new approach to the way financial institutions use technology – and to lead the company toward a sustained period of growth and success.
Jamie stated, “We’re not afraid to say it, we are here to disrupt the market. The older solutions people are familiar with are lazy, tired and provide the same features year after year. We’re pioneering, we have the best technology available, globally. Hito is building a business based on trust. We are not trying to sell complex on-premise solutions and then make customers pay time and time again for enhancements. We are also not going to release a new version every couple of years and make customers pay again and again. We will provide a world class system on day one and then included in our pricing will be innovation and enhancements delivered twice yearly for no additional cost. At the heart of our promise to customers and core to the heart of our business is trust. Trust is something earned and we are well aware of that”.
Hito is a UK registered company and part of Outsourcing Inc. (OSI), the publicly listed global process outsourcing business that has a $1.4b revenue turnover and offices in 16 locations around the world.
