  • Posted by Optal

Monday, 2 October 2017, London: Optal, a world expert in optimising B2B transactions, is delighted to announce its inclusion on the prestigious Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, confirming its position as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies.

The listing sees Optal stand shoulder-to-shoulder with big-name brands such as Wagamama, Trainline, Virgin Active and Barbour.

Now in its 13th year, the annual Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table ranks Britain’s private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales.

Optal’s inclusion comes just weeks after being placed 16th in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 list of Britain’s fastest-growing businesses.

Also this year, Optal scooped seventh place on the inaugural FT1000 list of Europe’s 1,000 fastest-growing companies.

Optal was also named by the London Stock Exchange Group as one of the 1,000 most inspirational companies in Britain; a list which awards only those with the strongest revenue growth and sector performance over the past three years.

As with all of Optal’s recent accolades, recognition on the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 list is testament to the company’s outstanding growth and strong reception by the market.

The firm is taking giant strides on its mission to optimise B2B payments by streamlining inefficient processes and stripping out unnecessary cost.

It does this via a Virtual Account Number (VAN) payment solution which automatically generates 16-digit, single-use, Mastercard numbers to enable fast, simple and secure payments, accepted at 35 million locations worldwide.

Through this and other innovative solutions, Optal is reinventing how payment processes work across multiple industries including travel, construction and insurance.

“B2B payments are long overdue an overhaul. They’re insecure, inefficient and saddled with excessive cost. Optal is revolutionising the sector and our listing on the prestigious Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 confirms that we’re doing something right,” says CEO, Rob Bishop

“As we build out our offerings and partnerships and expand into even more verticals the hope is that we can bring the transformative benefits of VANs to many more companies keen for disruption in B2B payments.”
