Torque IT Solutions Limited was founded by accomplished experts from within the financial services industry.
Coming out of the industry we were dissatisfied with the system solutions provided by IT suppliers. We felt that there was a disconnect between the business objectives and the IT solutions provided by suppliers who did not truly understand the business needs. Thus we decided to assemble a strong team of individuals who can make a difference delivering superior IT solutions for financiers. We do not replicate legacy processes in our systems but rather design our systems based on best practice processes. We do not only provide you with superior IT solutions but also offer business and process consulting for you to run your business most efficiently.
The three founders bring to the company over 40 years of experience in financial services, and are further supported by an advisory board of current and former Managing Directors, CEOs and Professionals with international and diverse company experience (including Toyota FS, Volkswagen FS, Ally FS, GMAC, Daimler FS and KPMG). Our team has been handpicked by the founders and is spread over our office locations in Auckland, New Zealand, and Berlin, Germany. We pride ourselves in using only the latest technologies and in our best-of-breed development processes for which we have already been recognised by independent organisations such as Microsoft.
