MOJO-CX© joins forces with Manchester-based recruitment consultancy, CMR
MANCHESTER, England – November 22, 2021 – MOJO-CX©, an artificial intelligence and machine learning solution provider for contact centres, earlier this month announced that it raised c.£1.5 million in its latest round of funding from both the Foresight Midlands Engine Investment Fund and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
MOJO-CX©’s software uses a mix of machine learning, voice and speech analytics, and behavioural science to enable better outcomes for both agents and customers alike, increasing revenue, decreasing operational expenses, and improving customer experience. MOJO-CX©’s unique algorithms are highly valuable and economical, making them the most efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly on the market.
This investment will ensure MOJO-CX© remains on track to scale its unique AI product suite in 2022. MOJO-CX©’s three core modules help businesses better listen to their customers through speech and voice analytics, act swiftly on customer preferences using Next Best Action models, and empower agents to self-develop and learn through its people analytics and coaching tool.
Headquartered in Manchester, the business has more than doubled its headcount over the last year and is establishing itself as another exponent of the strength of Manchester’s tech ecosystem. This growth has enabled the business to further expand to the Midlands. As a result, MOJO-CX© will significantly expand its workforce in Manchester and the Midlands to realise its dream of becoming the market-leading AI company in the region.
“The Greater Manchester Combined Authority was impressed by the strength of the management team and customer relationships already developed by MOJO-CX©, which have been helping to deliver transformational change across a range of sectors.” says Councillor David Molyneux, GMCA lead for Investment and Resources.
“The continued development of MOJO-CX©’s advanced product suite will help to develop and advance Greater Manchester’s already thriving digital economy, while also at the same time bringing high-quality jobs and career opportunities for the city-region.”
Foresight was impressed by MOJO-CX©’s desire to take advantage of the local talent in the Midlands, which made this investment opportunity compelling for Foresight’s Midlands Engine Investment Fund.
“We are delighted to be supporting MOJO-CX© on it's next stage of growth. With digital transformation projects becoming more widespread in organisations, MOJO-CX© is well placed to take advantage of this flourishing market. The team has extensive experience in this sector, and I am pleased they have selected Foresight as their partner for the next exciting phase of their journey” says Jordan Lavender, Investment Manager, Private Equity Team at the Foresight Group.
