About Beyond Labs

Our Vision

BEYOND liberates financial information from the confines of the finance team, giving all employees real-time control and visibility over their own budgets. We combine contemporary design, visual analytics, machine learning and elements of social media to bring budgeting up to speed with modern business.


The Problem

Traditional budgets waste time, are quickly outdated, and are a real pain to follow-up on throughout the year. They slow companies down, yet remain poor at optimising resource use and avoiding overspend.

We’re changing all that.

Beyond transforms how businesses budget - making it real-time and collaborative. It enables all employees in a company to track their spend and update their budgets with ease and transparency.

Now the budget always reflects what is actually happening in the business.

And this is just the beginning... with our unique dataset of financial and management information, we are deploying machine learning to bring the next level of intelligence and automation to a crucial business process.


The Founders

James Williams

After completing his Masters in Systems Engineering, James spent 4 years working at Barclays Investment Bank building high performance trading systems.
He spent half a year working in the CIO office where he gained a unique insight into dysfunctional budgeting from both the boardroom and the front line.
For good measure, he also has a MSc in Machine Learning from UCL.

Xavier Wilders

Xavier has been coding since he was 7, and graduated top of his year from Oxford with a Masters in Computer Science.
Prior to Beyond, he single-handedly built a collaborative budgeting system for Labo’Life, a multinational pharmaceutical company. It has been in use for the last 18 months with over €12M of budget under control.
