Who are Planixs?
Their unique suite of modular tools provide banks with the data, infrastructure and analytics to better manage their money, and provide a suite of highly detailed, real time data and cashflow information for banks to secure and improve intraday control.
Through their platform Realiti®, they also provide: forecasting, regulatory reporting, intraday reconciliation, payment control, collateral management and more to banks and financial institutions.
Founded in 2011 on the premise that cloud computing was the next great leap in computational use and innovation, Planixs built a technology platform capable of hosting high volume transactions and analytical processes via this non-client server model and sought an answer the perennial question that banks where facing: where is my cash and collateral in real time?
They are also leveraging machine learning and rapid deployment to improve banking cash flow services and liquidity holding, saving clients tens of millions of dollars a year.
Through Planixs’ suites of banking services they secure and improve two of the most essential elements of any banking service: regulatory compliance, and operational risk mitigation. They are already working with some of the world's leading banks and financial services such as Lloyds, Santander, and Barclays, and are now spreading into European and North American banks.
BrightBox Project Summary
➔ Planixs brought BrightBox in during its most aggressive recruitment period, and we supported their growth plans by supplying contractor, nearshore and permanent talent.
➔ As Planixs further enhanced it’s growing portfolio of clients, they needed to bring in senior management, alongside fully capable scrum teams composed of Developers, Business Analysts and Testers. The need for a reliable talent partner was evident. BrightBox, given its history and experience in this space, were selected as the partner of choice.
➔ During the last 2 years we agreed with Planixs to act as their internal recruitment partner. We deployed one of our senior consultants to act within the company as head of internal recruitment; arranged a PSL; managed all roles that have subsequently come live, and onboarded all candidates through a savvy mix of operating as a close partner and focusing on the culture-fit of mobile tech workers and where they want to work.
➔ BrightBox have managed to double Planixs’ entire workforce during our growing relationship, and our collaboration with Planixs was a key factor in their service delivery to some of their key clients, including Barclays and Lloyds.
"Planixs remains one of our core clients, given the volume of work that we had done with Planixs it made sense to deploy a consultant full time to ensure they were getting the very best market coverage. We’re proud to say that Planixs has gone from strength to strength over the course of the last 4 years. We look forward to a continued relationship."
