WHO ARE PHLASHWEB?

OUR STORY

Phlashweb started life as PhillAsh Ltd, and was formed in early 2013 with the vision of providing an exceptional service to clients in the trading technology space. It was only after our founder, Phill Ash, had spent over 10 years in the Fintech industry that the vision evolved. He realised the incredible scope of opportunity to improve things on a broad spectrum across all sectors of industry and not just Fintech. It was time to expand our services launching Phlashweb as the new brand for the company.

We evolved to provide not only outstanding consulting and project work, but also to develop bespoke software and technical support services for our clients.

More recently, in 2019, we’re proud to say that we grew again as a company. We redeveloped our website, and expanded our staff and services. We now help companies improve their digital profile through digital marketing, copywriting and content creation.

OUR VALUES

Our aim is to provide an exceptional standard of service to those looking for bespoke web based or mobile applications.

We separate ourselves from most of our competitors because we genuinely care about our clients business and that they get the result they need to help them move forward. As a company we pride ourselves on having a very unique blend of technology experience, creativity and highly effective team members which allows us to solve problems in quite an efficient and innovative manner.

Operating as a small company has numerous benefits. Not just offering a very quick and efficient turnaround at an extremely competitive price, but it also allows us to be flexible in terms of deliverables and overall outcomes throughout the life of a project. Being able to harness this seems to be a distinct advantage in today’s corporate environment as technology moves forward at an ever increasing pace.

OUR PEOPLE

Phill Ash

Phlashweb Founder and CEO

Phill graduated from Birmingham University with a Masters Degree in Computer Science in 2003. After spending over 15 years in the Fintech industry, working in various roles as an analyst, project manager and later training and managing overseas support teams he began to realise the significant challenges companies faced in managing IT services.

Over the years he’s seen countless cases of inefficiency, poor processes or a simple lack of understanding leading to significant resource and financial cost. He believes there is an incredible scope of opportunity to improve things and he strives for Phlashweb to be part of that change. His vision is to provide an exceptional service to the clients we have not just in the trading technology space but across any industry.
