Spotlight on Tech Festival

Last week saw Printworks host Tech, a two-day festival of digital commerce. A key theme from the event included the digital collaborators, which covered how businesses can partner with other businesses to leverage expertise and gain competitive advantage.

The event saw over 500 companies presented their offering, 2000 attendees and over 180 speakers across the 48 hours. But we’re going to turn our attention to five of the best startups that exhibited.

Hastee Pay

Whether it’s rent money coming out at an unfortunate time of the month or having to save money for bills, personal finance issues can be problematic for most of us.

The innovative start-up allows employees to receive their pay immediately at any time during the month, empowering employees to take more control of their finances and provide more flexibility for people to manage their finances.

It couldn’t be easier, all businesses need to do is plug the PostTag API into their system and away you go.

Once a customer has placed an order with your business the PostTag API will check, identify, verify and locate their address within milliseconds requiring no further questions to the customer.

Size Me Up

Started by two friends in Edinburgh, who had a discussion over how much cheaper and less time-consuming it would be to buy suits online but how hard it is to get the size that fits you properly.

But this is where the discussion stopped and the business idea began, when Svilen and Yanko when they dove a little deeper they found that the industry average for returned clothing from online shopping is at around 30% with sizing issues being one of the main contributing factors.

At the beginning of 2017, Size Me Up was born and soon the software development work began, currently the start-up is at beta application stage and looking for a partner in crime to dominate the world of clothing retail. We’re tipping 2020 to be a breakthrough year for them.
