We build great FinTech but only to deliver great client outcomes. We mainly use open source technology as our building blocks and like to open up our technology for others to build on top.
Cyborg Finance Systems are principally custom made, built and maintained in house. Custom designed to ensure superior client outcomes and ensure regulatory compliance.
We do this, with a little help of our friends. It's implausible for us to develop our own Operating System, Programming Framework, etc.. Instead, we avoid the use of closed systems, embracing Open Source Projects or API's that empowers us to customise to fit our needs.
A noted advantage of this approach is negating the use of commercial paid software reducing fixed overheads. Cost-saving measures that enable us to remain competitive.
So this webpage will showcase some of the projects, tools and services we use in thanks for helping us.
In return, we regularly make our FinTech code public. With Open Source (Commercial Licence) or via our Application Programming Interface (API). It's made available as re-inventing the wheel is in no one's benefit. We stand on the shoulders of giants.
This is our current Technology Stack
|Laravel||The PHP Framework For Web Artisans||Laravel is our foundations. Enables us to build tooling on top of PHP Programming Language. You are viewing this webpage through our "Laravel Client Acquisition System", powering our website content, blogs, etc..|
|Tailwind CSS||A utility-first CSS framework||Tailwind is our Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Framework. It helps us make webpages look pretty and consitant. It provides code that you just don't need to write from CSS from scratch every time.|
|Laravel Forge||Server Management||We have several servers to run the company. If you take this website we have a Database Server (for data), a Live Webserver (your on it now), a Development Webserver (so we can work in the background without breaking things) and a Staging Webserver this is where we test what we developed is ready before going live. Laravel Forge helps manage all of these servers and keeps our services online.||API|
|Digital Ocean||Webservers||Digital Ocean is our webhost. They make it simple to launch into the cloud and scale as we grow with predicable pricing.||API|
It's about service, not technology
Disruption Starts with Unhappy Customers, Not Technology. At the forefront of our delivery of mortgage advice is service. We develop our tools to enhance our service to deliver for happy clients.
It's not "look at what we built" but "look at how it helps us serve our clients".
