A Manchester-based engagement technology specialist has expanded its portfolio of local and international clients, following five client wins since the start of the year. This includes Manchester’s creative and cultural beacon, The Lowry, and globally renowned Liverpool FC.

Engage is a mobile-first colleague engagement platform that is enabling businesses across Greater Manchester and beyond to unlock the value of engagement, from creating employee advocacy to establishing meaningful connections with colleagues.

In Q1 2024, Engage also expanded its services provided to The Ardonagh Group, Frenkel Topping Group and Mountjoy. In the region, it also works with Manchester City Council, Manchester Law Society, and Club-Brass at Hotel Gotham, in addition to national and international brands Itsu, TrustFord, Soreen, and B&M.

Engage’s success follows the projected valuation of the employee engagement software market which is expected to reach $3.61bn globally by 2032, according to Fortune Business Insights.

The company is spearheaded by CEO Phil Wedgwood, and Phil Ashworth who serves as both CPO and CTO. Wedgwood and Ashworth invested in Engage after the successful sale of their last SaaS business, Rekoop.

Phil Wedgwood said: “Greater Manchester’s status as a fast-growing tech hub is testament to the synergy between innovation and community. It’s what drove us to develop a consumer-grade technology platform that allows businesses across the region and beyond to create thriving colleague communities with a sense of belonging, shared purpose and value.”

Engage was recently recognised by GP Bullhound’s Northern Tech Awards as one of the top 100 fastest-growing technology companies in the North of the UK.

Wedgwood added: “We’re very proud to be headquartered in Manchester, and with the increasing realisation of the significant business benefits of engagement done right, we look forward to continuing to enable engagement for some of the most recognisable brands locally, nationally and internationally.”
