About HeyCentric.

HeyCentric was formed to reinvent the way Local Authorities deal with the key issue of cash management. Seeing a clear need for a modern, cost effective and streamlined cash management solution in the public sector space the HeyCentric team created the next generation cash management software that would assist Local Authorities in a way that had not been done before.

The outcome is a solution that not only includes Cash Management facilities (with a fantastic, accessible interface for both business users and citizens), but also includes a powerful ETL suite of tools that allow Local Authorities to release themselves from the expensive shackles of incumbent middleware solutions such as BizTalk, etc.

Ian Witts

With over 20 years’ experience working in and around Enterprise Systems, Ian traditionally specialises in high-technology environments and implementing systems that require extensive integrations. His previous roles in high technology environments give Ian a broad range of experiences to draw upon in his role as head of Security and Technical Solutions.

Ian’s formal education stems from his love of Information Technology, with his BSc and MSc degrees heavily centred around Business Information Systems and cutting-edge ways of delivering complex computing solutions. With a background in both Information Technology and finance, Ian can communicate with senior stakeholders across all disciplines at all levels, frequently bridging the age old ‘finance / IT divide’.

He has worked with numerous companies to develop their technical strategy and (importantly) ensure that it is delivered.
