This Reading firm uses its Portfolio Manager software to send payment reminders to customers on behalf of banks, mortgage providers and utility companies. Some 15m reminders are sent automatically every month by text message, e-mail or telephone, and can be customised to match the recipient’s dialect and credit profile. Under chief executive Lou Venezia, Adeptra stepped up its expansion in June by acquiring Sydney-based Right Party Connect. It claims that its customer base doubled last year, helping sales to rise 47% a year from £2.6m in 2004 to £8.2m in 2007.
