Who we are

Pushpull Technology is a UK based company delivering live data and workflow solutions through its unique ipushpull SaaS platform to the global financial markets industry. We are changing the way data-driven services are delivered and reducing the burden of costly development for our customers using our low code, configurable and fast-to-market approach.

 

How we started

It was 2013 and our founder Dan was working from various far flung locations trying to manage a team of financial markets traders also based in remote locations. While all the main tech was sitting in financial hubs (London/Chicago), pulling the data together, processing it and then distributing it was a challenge on a daily basis, and Dan needed it in real-time!  Dan called David and they together conceived and built a set of configurable modules, delivered as services in the cloud, offering real-time data sharing, without the need for any code development. Dan was now able to plug in all his data and view it in real-time and in the way he wanted, first on desktop and later on mobile. Soon Matt joined the team and ipushpull was born!

 

Where are we now

ipushpull has come along way from those early days. The vision is the same but the applications have grown exponentially. We now serve the broader financial markets community including many of the worlds leading banks, brokers and asset managers, revolutionising how they communicate and deliver data services to their clients and counterparties. To the broader business community we offer our self service platform to bring the benefits to organisations large and small across all sectors. And with the change in the demands for faster, better data and more automation from a new generation of customers,  combined with a move to more flexible remote working practices, we feel the journey is still just beginning!
