Onguard expands UK sales team with addition of Andy Bass
London, 15 July 2020 – Onguard, the FinTech company dedicated to redefining the order-to-cash payment process, has announced the appointment of Andy Bass as New Business Development Manager as the company continues its UK expansion and exploits new opportunities in the region.
With more than 20 years’ experience within the IT industry in the UK and Europe, Andy has held a number of senior roles including as the UK CEO of a major multinational. He was charged with improving the company’s cash conversion cycle through direction and focus on reducing the monthly DSO position of the company.
More recently he has held sales positions at a variety of SaaS-based businesses operating in the accounts payable (AP) and accounts receivable (AR) automation and incentive payments space. Andy’s appointment will strengthen Onguard’s position as it expands its presence in the UK following a period of continued growth in the region and increased demand for automated order-to-cash solutions from UK businesses.
UK market interest piquing
Martin de Heus, VP of Sales, Onguard, commented: “The UK is already an important market for Onguard, and Andy brings added passion and experience to a growing UK team, as well as unique customer and sales experience. There has recently been a noticeable increase in interest from UK companies of all sizes seeking to fully automate their order-to-cash process. From cash collection and allocation, to billings and risk management, we are well placed to fulfill those needs.”
Andy Bass, New Business Development Manager, Onguard, added: “Onguard is the clear leader in the order-to-cash space and has the ambition to invest in its business and people to take its customers to the next level of AR automation, which makes it an exciting company to join. The recent acquisition by business transformation powerhouse Visma is a clear vote of confidence in Onguard’s business model and I look forward to sharing in the success of the business.”
