Harrogate-based Nostrum helps companies eliminate the need for large call centres by providing lending software to high street and challenger banks and big retailers. The software platform can handle a variety of tasks, from credit checks and managing direct debits to dealing with defaults. Chief executive Richard Carter, 48, saw sales in 2014 increase to £9m, boosted by winning a number of big brands as new clients. This led to the opening of a new London office and a 35% increase in staff in the same year.
