Who are we?

Figured is a New Zealand born SaaS business that is taking the Fintech world by storm by changing the course of the Agricultural industry.

Farmers and growers around the world are all faced with similar challenges when it comes to farming. They are at the whim of market prices and weather, which increasingly is becoming more unpredictable and volatile. Currently there are no existing tools that bring the financial focus to the forefront, and connect that with actual performance and an accounting system   To enable farmers and growers to better “weather the storm”, Figured aims to solve the following problems in the US market.

What started as a simple idea to keep ahead of the financial state of a farm has now grown into an award winning SaaS business and a platform where the farmer, the accountant, the consultant and the banker collaborate in real time and gain great insight to the financial performance of the farm. We are excited about the partnerships we have with the cloud based accounting software Xero and pumped to be delivering our product to the US market.
