Welcome to the future – SSA at Inition studios

Inition softwareThe team at SSA have been out and about exploring new tech and innovations, and recently stopped by the showcase products on display at Inition studios in Shoreditch. The futuristic technology developers specialise in a range of exciting new products including virtual reality head-mounted displays, motion capture systems, haptics, 3D printers and 3D scanners, and host regular open days for people to experience their products.

It was a fascinating experience to try out the many exciting new things on display. Particular highlights were the Oculus virtual reality demos and iPad augmented reality applications.

Though not a likely demand for our usual technology requirements setting up web based data management software, it’s an important aspect of a modern web agency to stay aware of moving trends in the industry.

We’ve been working with partners in the financial sector for the last 18 months to develop preferred solutions to some of the current regulatory headaches, including client money protection. As part of our drive to better understand our clients’ challenges we are pleased to be co-hosting the breakout session ‘Examining CASS Resolution Packs’.

As regulated firms grapple with the need for a current resolution pack available to the FCA at any time, there is a lot of interest in how best to organise processes and use automation to lower the associated overheads. This session provides expert insight into what a good resolution pack should look like and how a CF10a can create and maintain one efficiently and compliantly using the latest technology.
