Tide Trusted Professionals

The UK’s largest curated financial services marketplace in the UK

Tide helps SMBs find the right providers through a financial services marketplace

Tide is a B2B UK based financial technology company providing mobile-first banking services for over 350 000 small and medium-sized enterprises. As one of the first digital-only finance platforms in the UK, Tide revolutionized the “traditional” banking approach.

Having a sole focus on businesses as customers, Tide aims to go above and beyond standard banking services by providing Tide Members with a financial services marketplace through which they can purchase professional services from a curated network to help them grow their business.


Wishing to provide additional financial and accounting services to its customers, Tide tasked Cocolabs with launching a brand-new offering by way of a service marketplace. This marketplace enables accounting firms and other financial services professionals to offer their services directly to the more than 350 000 businesses that use Tide.

Second’s benefits

Tide chose Second to build the base for their new service offering expressed in the form of a financial services marketplace. Focusing on commoditized services, the platform’s goal is to connect Tide Members with a trusted network of professionals and enable the former to browse, filter, and purchase either one-time services or recurrent services directly online.

Second natively offered all required features to help stakeholders stay focused on what is essential: the new user experience which would guide Tide Members access these network-specific services within the Tide ecosystem.
