Our latest round of investment from Foresight Group
MANCHESTER, England – November 22, 2021 – The Modular Analytics Company (TMAC), 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.
TMAC’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. TMAC’s unique algorithms are highly valuable and economical, making them the most efficient, affordable, and environmentally friendly on the market.
This investment will ensure TMAC remains on track to scale its unique AI product suite in 2022. TMAC’s three main products 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, TMAC 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 The Modular Analytics Company, 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 TMAC’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 TMAC’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 TMAC on its next stage of growth. With digital transformation projects becoming more widespread in organisations, TMAC 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.
“TMAC’s goal is to become world-famous for its SaaS products, and this commitment from our investors further underscores our ambitions,” says Jimmy Hosang, CEO of The Modular Analytics Company.
“As a proud Mancunian who lives in the heart of the city, it’s always been my passion to put Manchester on the map when it comes to technology and creativity. This sentiment is echoed by George Hartshorn, our Chief Data Scientist and Product Officer, who has an equal affinity for the Midlands."
Looking forward to 2022, Hosang says the funding from investors heightens the company’s product offering to businesses and includes enhanced product integration, even faster deployments, and growing the TMAC team’s expertise across speech analytics, data engineering, product UX, and marketing.
