This is a great opportunity for Datactics to connect with businesses across the industry and we will strive to work collectively with stakeholders across our city to continue to contribute to its economic prosperity.

Putting FinTech on the map!

We are delighted that Datactics has made it into the Tech Nation UK FinTech spotlight.

Check out the Tech Nation interactive map to see what we had to say about the waves Datactics is making in the regulatory landscape.

“It’s estimated that 90% of a business’ potential is underutilized, and often the solution to this is found in data, which is complex, time-consuming to analyse and often needs coders, programmers or data analysts to translate.

Datactics’ platform transforms data into actionable insights and empowers those who know data to fix it, without the need for coders or programmes. This helps businesses gain new markets and improve their internal productivity.”
