Our History

Founded in 2005 as The Scotney Group, and based on a vision to improve transaction processing for a variety of industries, InLoop has rapidly grown by helping thousands of organisations streamline their business. In 2008 The Scotney Group launched Flexischools, an entirely novel platform for allowing parents to transact with schools across a wide range of services and providers. The service rapidly grew to incorporating over 1,000 primary and secondary schools, and continues to lead the industry and set the benchmark for service.

In 2015 The Scotney Group rebranded to InLoop, and developed a range of transaction platforms, specifically designed to service the needs of Governments, Corporates and Non-Government Organisations.

InLoop has received several awards including the BRW Fast100 in 2013 and 2014, and continues to invest in people and technology to maintain a high level of service.
