SMS provider Voodoo has opened a tech innovation hub in Manchester as the demand for its services soared during the lockdown.
The leading mobile communication specialist, which counts Amazon, Sports Direct and the NHS among its client base, has previously confirmed plans to expand its operation into the North West. The new hub, which will be based in Ancoats, will be headed by telecoms specialist Zia Rizvi.
Gareth Davies, managing director, said: “Manchester has a truly international reputation for the innovative work delivered by the city’s digital and technology sectors. With wealth of knowledge and expertise to call upon, it was the natural choice for our new technical innovation hub.
“Since the beginning of the national lockdown in March, we noticed a significant increase in demand for our messaging services as growing numbers of businesses turned to text messaging to communicate directly with their customers and staff.
"It is a trend which is set to continue as businesses adapt and evolve their operations during the current economic climate. Industry data has consistently shown text messaging can be a much more effective way of engaging with customers than other forms of communication."
