The company 

Price comparison is a growing part of the home services market and is fast becoming the most accepted switching mechanism for consumers. Consumer demand for comparison and switching in home services is growing as people have more choices, both from new and existing suppliers.

Energy Helpline is a price comparison platform for the electricity and gas sectors and was founded in 2002. UK Web Media is a marketing solutions and price comparison business founded in 2001, focused on broadband, TV and telephones. The combination of these two businesses to form Comparison Technologies created the only independent player in the UK that can provide multi-channel, online and offline (call centre), price comparison-driven switching in the home services category.

The Inflexion difference

Inflexion is experienced at integrating complementary businesses. Since the double buyout, Inflexion have been supporting the management team with the integration as well as investing further in technology, data and systems.
