We’ve switched to AWS servers, meaning we can speed up our connection to firms and businesses globally.
- Speed: the main takeaway is that Futrli will run at hyper speed in the southern hemisphere
- Security: the nature of AWS servers means your data is even more secure than ever
Popular services, used by Airbnb, Spotify, and Netflix, Amazon Web Services (AWS), allow users across the globe to access sites at full speed. At Futrli we understand the need for instant access to your accounts. If you’re heading to a meeting with a client or your board of directors, you need to be able to show what’s going on under the hood of your business as soon as you log in.
We’ve started 2018 with the most stable, secure and fast application than we’ve ever had. In 2017 we invested heavily in our infrastructure, moving all services to AWS as well as re-architecting much of our platform in preparation for the integrations that we will be releasing this year and in order to scale effortlessly. We’re now deploying to Europe and Australia individually, with scope to extend further to North America etc with ease – so our ANZ customers will see a little bit of a difference!

Quicker data access than before
Running Futrli on our previous server and live comparing it to the newer AWS server, we saw a marked decrease in loading time. This means our clients can access our financial services quicker, whether it's accounting firms or a (small) business owner. Managers of client companies can access our resources faster.
Simply logging in to Futrli, the time taken from Australia, for example, is halved. (Small) businesses can now access our services even quicker. We’ve tested the AWS servers again and again, with everyone in the office loading the heaviest duty forecasts simultaneously. Suffice to say, we had a laugh doing it, but it also left everyone impressed at the capability of the service. It took our tests in its stride, which makes us proud to be rolling out Futrli on AWS for you.
Connecting more of the globe to their numbers
AWS gives us the ability to host Futrli in more regions. We’re prioritizing making our platform accessible to everyone because using real-time data is the only way to work. Using AWS means the closer the app is to you the faster it will be.
Further to that, being in more regions means we can comply better with data protection laws, therefore you’ll never have to worry about your data.
