Phlashweb started life as PhillAsh Ltd, and was formed in early 2013 with the vision of providing an exceptional service to clients in the trading technology space. It was only after our founder, Phill Ash, had spent over 10 years in the Fintech industry that the vision evolved. He realised the incredible scope of opportunity to improve things on a broad spectrum across the financial industry.
Knowing the massive savings in time and money that could and are achieved through careful analysis and auditing, it was time to expand our services, so Phill, along with Darina Kostadinova, our Project Director, launched Phlashweb as the new brand for the company.
We evolved to provide not only outstanding consulting and project work in the Fintech space, but also develop bespoke software and quantitative analysis to any industry.
More recently, in 2019, we’re proud to say that we grew as a company. We redeveloped our website, and expanded our staff and services. We are now also working with clients on their copywriting projects and marketing strategies.
Our aim is to provide an exceptional standard of service to those looking for bespoke web based or mobile applications.
We separate ourselves from most of our competitors because we genuinely care about our clients business and that they get the result they need to help them move forward. As a company we pride ourselves on having a very unique blend of technology experience, creativity and highly effective team members which allows us to solve problems in quite an efficient and innovative manner.
Operating as a small company has numerous benefits. Not just offering a very quick and efficient turnaround at an extremely competitive price, but it also allows us to be flexible in terms of deliverables and overall outcomes throughout the life of a project. Being able to harness this seems to be a distinct advantage in today’s corporate environment as technology moves forward at an ever increasing pace.
Phlashweb Founder and CEO
Phill graduated from Birmingham University in 2003. After spending over 10 years in the Fintech industry, working in various roles as an analyst and a Fix Onboarding Engineer, he moved into training and support for overseas offices and began to realise the incredible scope of opportunity to improve things on broad spectrum across the financial industry.
He believes that knowledge, even complex, should be accessible and made to be understood by anyone. He believes the people with that knowledge have the responsibility to make it available.
Over the years he’s seen countless cases of poorly thought out processes. His vision is to provide an exceptional service to the clients we have in the trading technology space. There is incredible scope of opportunity to improve things across many industries, and he strives for Phlashweb to be part of that change.
