Ingenious today announces that it has led an investment round into Over-C Limited, a London-based analytics company focused on operational performance in the workforce management market. Ingenious helped raise an additional £5.5 million in equity funding, bringing the total raised to £10 million.
Over-C’s software uses artificial intelligence, data and analytics to provide industry professionals with key insights for time-critical decision making. Over-C drives behaviours that allow companies to rethink their business and operating models, better quantify risk, uncover new opportunities, reduce losses, and boost profits. The firm currently operates across the UK, Ireland and The Netherlands providing solutions for many industry sectors ranging from transport operators for rail and airports, to shopping centres, stadiums and manufacturers.
The latest round of funding was led by Ingenious’s infrastructure division and represents the second investment from the Infrastructure Ventures EIS Service, following the backing of Reactive Technologies, a world leading technology platform facilitating the transition to a low carbon future.
The investment in Over-C remains in line with the firm’s ongoing drive to seek out high-growth investment opportunities in companies active in the energy, communications, transportation and resource efficiency industries.
The success of the firm to date has been recognised nationally. Its UK partner O2, a leading digital communications company, won ‘The IOT Award’ at the annual Connected Britain Awards 2019 for O2 Smart Compliance, which is powered by Over-C. The IOT Award for 2019 was given to O2, thanks to their joint work work with ScotRail in helping to ensure the security of workers in potentially hazardous situations. ScotRail, Scotland’s national rail service provider, needed a digital solution to help them align with the Department for Transport’s requirements and standards for security and safety, such as real time information, time sensitive prompts and tamper proof records.
