Story Behind

Matthew Stibbe is a writer, marketing professional, and entrepreneur. Matthew is the CEO of Articulate Marketing, founder of Turbine, and co-founder of Vincarta.

A close collaboration on the Turbine project started with the development of the main features, and which was followed by a new stage, aimed at improving the UI/UX and onboarding experience for potential customers.

Main Features

Working in close collaboration with Matthew Stibbe, the team implemented a simple and elegant idea of replacing paper forms for purchasing, expenses, staff planning, and other documents, with digital forms. Turbine takes care of everything using simple and powerful web-based forms.

Time-off requests

Allows admins to track and manage staff holidays, sick days, and other time off. No more untidy paperwork or missing forms. Employees can request time off quickly online. Managers can approve or reject it easily.

Expenses & Purchase orders

Turbine makes it easy for people to manage purchase orders online and for companies to get control of spending. No software downloads required – it’s all online for a low monthly subscription for the whole company.



Record, review, approve, and manage expenses online.


Email Templates

One of the key components of Turbine is an email editor. Admins (managers) can customize content, formatting, and layouts of emails to be sent to end-users (employees) directly from their company portal within Turbine.


Employee database

Turbine lets you keep employee information in one place, making it easier to find, use, and update.

Fundamentally, there is no difference between a programmer (or a designer or a tester) based in an office in London and one in another part of the world. They’re either good or bad, talented or useless, collaborative, or ego-centric. Going offshore is cost and time effective. Most of the applications people use every day were built ‘offshore’. We are delighted with the experience of working with Anadea engineers on this project, and would highly recommend them to companies across the world.
