Fluent Technology.

The team behind Flexi-Grant®, our groundbreaking grant management software.

We are innovative.

We have a great bunch of nerds and geeks (absolutely not an insult around here) in our office who are expected to create highly usable, intuitive and groundbreaking software. If they don't, we refuse to pay them (not really as there's probably a law against that). We're always looking for ways to add new features and improve our software and with Flexi-Grant® all our customers benefit from each and every new innovation in the product as soon as it is launched. We have a healthy fear of complacency and a desire to be the best at what we do.

We are committed.

And slightly fanatical (but in a good, healthy way). We are committed to building exceptional software products. We are committed to listening carefully and doing our best to understand your needs and provide you with a solution that perfectly suits them. We promise to be open about our costs and reach a price that works for everyone . We promise to train you well (let's be honest if we get lots of support calls then something has gone wrong). And always to be honest and clear in our communication with you (as long as you forgive the odd spelling or grammar mistake).

We are caring.

We design fantastic software and we care deeply about others loving it too. We are happy bunnies if our software makes your job easier, more productive, less stressful. We provide first-rate customer service (thankfully our customers say this as well as us) and a friendly voice on the phone when you need it. We forge strong and lasting relationships with our customers (some even send us buns but we try not to have favourites) and always strive to make sure that they enjoy working with us (we provide buns at all our meetings, maybe that helps?).

Our vision.

To produce the world’s best online grant management system.
