Birds of a feather: Greenfinch invests €500k in Siskin

Irish tech firm Greenfinch has invested €500,000 in building a new technology that will accelerate innovation the insurance and retail sectors.

As digital transformation sweeps the business world, new capabilities such as ‘low code’ are proving pivotal to how firms can speedily deploy new platforms and services.

Following its acquisition by TEKenable in September 2020, Irish tech firm Greenfinch Technologies has invested €500,000 in order to leverage Siskin into the insurance and retail sectors.

“Siskin helps with project management, automated workflows and repetitive processes that cover all aspects of the normal, day-to-day business tasks”

Siskin is a powerful workflow and case management platform that allows business users to turn any collaborative business process into a task-oriented web application.

The acquisition of Greenfinch by Tekenable has created  a combined business with more than 90 employees and projected revenues of €8m.

The low code revolution

Its low code design allows analysts and project managers to define complex business processes without the requirement to involve software development personnel.

Siskin will help users reduce time spent on repetitive tasks and focus on high-value business activities by allowing them to collaborate on data-intensive business tasks more effectively.

“Our aim is to leverage Siskin initially at least into the insurance and retail sectors and help them drive efficiency, productivity and better customer responsiveness with a very competitive licensing model that is not per user based,” explained Peter Rose, TEKenable CTO.

“Siskin helps with project management, automated workflows and repetitive processes that cover all aspects of the normal, day-to-day business tasks.”

It will allow staff situated across departments and geographical boundaries to quickly access all related information to complete client tasks and cases and provide a greater level of control over business activities across an organisation.  Siskin works in conjunction with other IT systems, such as document management, ERP or hosted SaaS applications. 

Siskin is built on Microsoft technology and is deployable across multi and hybrid cloud environments.

“By implementing Siskin, organisations can work smarter,” added Nick Connors, managing director of TEKenable.

“With the workplace that Siskin facilitates, organisations increase productivity, enhance the customer experience, speed innovation and build competitive advantage.”
