Offering its banking and payments platform to an increasingly global cohort of businesses and end users has driven sales at this North Yorkshire business, founded by Peter Cox, 73, in 2008. Its offering is used by banks, retailers and cryptocurrency firms for online payments. While UK sales currently account for 85% of business, it expects that figure to drop to less than 50% within three years thanks to a focus on Europe. In June last year the former vice-president of European B2B business at American Express — Flavia Alzetta, 51 — was appointed chief executive to drive its expansion plans. Sales were £7.2m last year.
