New investment means growth!
We’re really pleased to announce that we’ve recently secured additional investment of £1 million to support our growth.
As a result of the backing from both existing and new angel investors we’ll create around 10 new positions to support business growth and increased demand for our products. We’ll also be opening an office in London later this month to accelerate growth in the UK with a US office expected before the end of the year.
The funding will allow us to further develop our software such as the our latest product, Gecko Chat which provides universities with a unified inbox. This means teams can manage and respond to conversations happening across their website, Facebook, Twitter, SMS and email without having to be logged in to multiple systems.
Our founder and CEO, Matt Lanham, said “Instant messaging platforms are where students are spending more of their time, and that’s only going to increase with the rise of conversational user interfaces. Managing conversations across multiple networks is a nightmare for staff at the moment, and Gecko Chat fixes that by giving them a single login that allows for conversations to be managed regardless of the network the student chooses.”
Matt added: “To date, we’ve helped our clients capture more than one million enquiries from students and this funding will allow us to continue building further innovative products to support our clients and fuel our growth.
“Whilst there are hundreds of startups focusing on bringing innovation to the classroom, the universities’ back offices have been left behind with ageing software that doesn’t meet the needs of today’s student. Gecko is changing that, building innovative products that meet the real challenges university staff are facing and ultimately giving them the super powers they need to get their jobs done.”
