The Product Works are proud to have advised the team at LinkedFinance on technology matters. In early 2015, LinkedFinance founder, Peter O'Mahony, asked The Product Works to come on-board to advise on the technology driving the company's peer-to-peer lending platform. We were able to apply our experiences gained from leading a mobile payments company to assess LinkedFinance's current systems. And to make recommendations on future that would ensure that the technology could adequately scale to match LinkedFinance's rapid growth as Ireland's leading business-lending. We're delighted to be a contributor to the growth of indigenous Irish companies through LinkedFinance.
