In brief: No coding skills, no problem

No coding skills, no problem

Total Integrated Resources (TIR), a business consultancy, has launched an academy to help businesses and individuals with no technical background build mobile and web apps.

TIR is partnering with KnowledgeKube, a start-up which enables anyone to create enterprise-grade apps without writing a line of code.

Their eight-day introductory course will equip entrepreneurs with the skills to develop apps that help automate processes or workflows within their businesses. The TIR Academy plans to roll out more advanced courses in the next six months.

TIR has also launched Resources To Share, a business-to-business portal that matches companies with resources with those who need them.

Track the value of your luxury assets online

Digital money management firm eWise now allows users to add luxury goods such as art, cars, wine and jewellery to their financial portfolios so they can track the value and performance of these physical assets.

eWise is designed for retail banks, financial advisers, wealth managers and financial technology firms wanting to offer digital financial management services to their clients.

The new feature is being introduced as high returns on assets such as fine wine and classic cars are providing increased yield and diversification for many investors, the firm said.
