Sheffield tech firms enter into joint venture


Two Sheffield firms have entered into a joint venture to expand their offering.

Technical solutions business, The Curve, has signed a deal with SMS-based consultation operation, Textocracy.

They state that they will be working to scale up Textocracy’s service platform, which can form part of consultation and feedback processes. It’s already used by councils and the NHS.

“The service offering that Textocracy has is unique and very valuable on both a local and national scale and could benefit a wide range of organisations,” explained Paul Ridgway CEO of The Curve

“We decided to enter this joint venture after recognising that both our team’s backgrounds could help one another to move forward and develop for new audiences.”

 Textocracy founder and CEO, Elizabeth Shassere identify how The Curve’s team can develop their offering for the public sector:

“After launching Textocracy in 2015, I think this is the next appropriate step for the life of the business and I’m really looking forward showing how this collaboration can ultimately benefit both businesses.

“We have been in discussions with The Curve for a number of months and their open-minded approach really stood out to us. They are a high-skilled team who are inclusive which was really important as we don’t come from a technical background, but we know the public sector and the importance of the user’s voice in all services.”
