While working on projects in the financial services space together we saw a burning need for clean and consolidated data for businesses in the industry. The tools being used were expensive, slow, inflexible, and nobody knew how to use them. Lack of timeous access to complete data delayed projects, frustrated management, and ultimately handicapped businesses from delivering value to their clients.

That is why we founded Onebase. Driven by the vision to radically improve data management for wealth, asset, and fund of fund businesses. We also wanted to eliminate the barrier of high capital outlay by offering a subscription-based software and skills solution, and that is what we now offer.

Onebase also has consultants available to fulfil tasks ranging from administrative tasks to business analysis, development, and project management.
