Fintech firm Inflo has developed ground-breaking workflow, data ingestion, data analytics and AI software that transforms the efficiency, quality and value of accounting services such as external audits.

The company, headquartered at the Evolve Business Centre, was founded in 2016 by former accountants turned tech entrepreneurs Mark Edmondson and Graham Clark.

Today, the company boasts strategic partnerships with global media giant Thomson Reuters and Baker Tilly International, a world-wide network of accounting firms, as well as offices in the US and Australia.

Mark said: “We decided to set up headquarters in the North East because of the business infrastructure and access to talent it offers.

“Sunderland City Council has continually provided knowledge and contacts across the world to remove some of the barriers to global expansion and allow us to focus on building the infrastructure we need to meet incredible demand and we couldn’t be happier with the support we’ve received since relocating to Evolve.”
