Our Story

Our company was founded by Searle Goott, an ex. Ernst & Young Chartered Accountant with 30 years’ experience working as a Financial Director for various companies (both enterprise and SME's). Flagship was born out of frustration with the lack of available reporting tools to enable the automation and customisation of management reports, KPI's and other key accounting reports.

Our mission is simple: To be the go-to product for financial reporting by providing:

- An easy an intuitive app.
- Functionality required to meet the user's reporting requirements.
- Connectivity to key software vendors.

With Flagship, you can create management reports in minutes, in your format, with an easy and visual drag and drop interface. Data is consistently in sync with your accounting system, so your reports are automatically updated.
