1. What does your business do?
RB Digital Ltd manages a portfolio of websites including it’s main brand, SIM Only Contracts. This a consumer website for comparing SIM only deals, reviews, news and advice. The website itself has been running since 2008 (around about the time Clear Books started coincidentally). The SIM only market as been a fast growing product in the mobile industry since the recession and we’ve been able to help over 500,000 people in that time.
2. Why did you invest in Clear Books?
I’ve been using Clear Books for nearly 3 years now since becoming a limited company and over this time I have been impressed with their developments and the way they conduct their business. As a brand, I trust Clear Books and believe that they have a great base to build on and huge potential for the future success.
3. Clear Books is asking its customers to co-own the business. What do you think?
It’s certainly a unique way to gain funding but a sign of the times that more companies are opting for this strategy of crowd/cloud funding. I think it also highlights the fact that Clear Books is a company that is willing to think outside the box and do things differently. I also believe that this method attracts a certain type of investor who will have a much greater interest in helping Clear Books to grow.
4. What do you like about Clear Books?
The software itself is easy to use and the design is both modern and clear. Being able to quickly import my bank statements and mass update is one of the features that makes my life so much easier.
