Chester based fintech company Businesscomparison.com has moved to a larger office after growing its user base to 30,000 visitors a month.
The online firm, that helps small business owners to compare deals on bank accounts, commercial mortgages, business energy and insurance is based in the historic Steam Mill which is a landmark listed building in the centre of Chester.
In keeping with the style of a modern digital business, there has been a complete refurbishment to include a living wall, library room and a bespoke graffiti wall. Staff have a gaming area to unwind in at the end of the day and there are informal spaces to discuss and develop ideas.
Since launching in 2015, the digital company has expanded steadily to eight staff and won five industry awards including SME Website of the Year and Cheshire Start-up of the year.
Businesscomparison.com aims to have helped 50% of SMEs in the UK in the first five years – that’s over 2.6 million users. Last year two channel managers were appointed to enable the comparison website to offer financial, energy and insurance solutions to even more businesses.
Head of Businesscomparison.com, Philip Brennan comments,
“The team have worked hard to develop and grow a business that we’re all really proud of. The move to larger premises represents the growth of the company and we’re excited to fill the extra space with more staff over the coming years as we look to expand and offer even more products to business customers.
“We launched Businessnesscomparison.com just over two years ago, as an online comparison tool for business owners to find the best deals on products and services that are essential to their daily running and success. As a growing company, we know the financial pressures faced by SMEs up and down the country and tailor our website to make life easier for them at a time when there is uncertainty in the business community.
“Careful planning has gone into the design of the new office space that allows us to nurture partnerships and create new business opportunities. We’re proud of our heritage in Chester and the look and feel of the new space has been designed with our brand in mind. We’re very excited about the future.”
