As 2016 draws to a close, we’ve been reflecting on what has been a busy and exciting year here at Cutover. Our platform has seen some major changes, we’ve been joined by great new people and we’ve taken on new clients, who are helping us to shape future versions of Cutover.
With the launch of V2 in June, the Cutover platform has developed significantly. Improved dashboards, advanced filtering, expansion of task types and the introduction of help videos for our customers are some of the major changes, as well as a dramatically improved UI.
After a fantastic year, we’ll soon be rolling out Cutover V2.2 to our valued customers. As a result of their great feedback, this version features the introduction of custom dashboards, improved and expanded CSV functionality and additional filtering ability.
As we move into 2017, we’re focusing on the features that support the wider adoption of Cutover that we’ve been seeing. This includes Single Sign-On and will extend to other areas, such as My Cutover, which will provide a personalised view of a user's Cutover activity.
The great support and sponsorship within our existing client base has helped us to achieve fantastic organic growth. This means that we’ve achieved our 2016 milestones, including having contracts in place with more than one major bank. We’ve now also signed a contract with our first US client too!
We’d like to thank our clients for their continuing support and for helping us to make 2016 a fantastic, successful year.
2016 saw the addition of four great new additions to the Cutover team.
We are pleased to announce the addition of Cris Conde, former President and CEO of SunGard, to our Board. We met Cris in his role as Senior Mentor on the Fintech Innovation Lab programme. An active investor and board member of hi-tech growth companies, Cris has a wealth of experience in scaling technology companies and his guidance as Cutover moves forward will be invaluable.
After a successful internship, we officially welcomed Chloe to the team as our Marketing Assistant. With a degree in literature and a background in publishing and communications, Chloe’s extensive knowledge and creative flair make her a key addition to the Marketing Team.
With a degree in Computer Science and a background in IT and customer services, Bradley brings a wealth of technical knowledge coupled with a great understanding of client-focused development.
Client Success Manager
We are also pleased to introduce Manish this month as our very first Client Success Manager. After nearly 25 years at Barclays, he has extensive global IT change experience within financial services. Manish will be working with our clients, using his extensive specialist knowledge to ensure successful adoption and continuing use of the Cutover platform.
We’ve been fortunate to be featured by clients, users, partners and industry thought leaders in the media throughout the year. Here are some of our recent highlights:
- Barclays published a report about our journey since graduating from the Barclays Techstars Accelerator.
- Nationwide issued a Press Release about their testing of our product.
- Computer Weekly released a video interview with our CEO Ky after their 50th anniversary event.
We hope you have a great festive season! We’d like to thank you all for your continued support and wish you all the very best for 2017.
