Lucy Powell, MP for Manchester Central, has thrown her support behind STAC (Smart Technology and Consulting Ltd), a company based in Manchester which is providing ground-breaking technology combined with a transformational change management capability to improve the way the public sector thinks about and uses their data.

Powell was taken on a tour of STAC’s offices where she was shown the company’s unique technology offerings bringing practical application of Artificial Intelligence and Data Management in industry. STAC capability provides companies, institutions and departments of all sizes the opportunity to pool their data and produce real time, accurate reports, infographics and carry out searches. STAC uses data to provide ground-breaking solutions to Cyber-security problems, anti-attack, anti-phishing and the AI learning capability to process data feeds from any source. HM Revenue & Customs, the Metropolitan Police, NHS Trusts, and companies like Morrison’s and Manchester Airports Group have all benefitted from STAC’s unique approach to introduce effective and adaptive change at speed.

STAC have a wealth of experience in efficient delivery, with many supremely experienced consultants working as part of their team.

In addition, as a leading tech company fiercely proud of its Manchester roots, STAC is keen to draw on and train local talent to help grow its offer to the public and private sectors. Powell met with Ashleigh, a STAC employee and recent University of Manchester graduate. They discussed the opportunities that STAC are providing and the developments that Ashleigh has made in her short time with the firm, and STAC are keen to continue to grow the next generation of tech talent in Manchester.

Ashleigh Graham, Graduate Developer said:

“STAC has offered me a wonderful opportunity to take my first steps into a career in tech.

“It is great that they are looking to recruit local young people to drive the business forward. Many young graduates are worried about getting their first job, I feel very fortunate have secured such an excellent job in this vibrant city.”

Lucy Powell, MP for Manchester Central, said:

“STAC is a fantastic local business which is drawing on the brilliant young graduate talent in Manchester, like Ashleigh, to help bring its ground breaking technology to the forefront of public sector change.

“It is so heartening to see a business recruit and train a vibrant workforce of techies for the future in the heart of the city and I was very impressed to see the work they are doing to bring innovation to public services across the country. I am very proud to have them in my constituency.”

Jim Berrisford, Senior Partner for STAC, said:

“STAC is delighted to welcome Lucy Powell to our offices to illustrate how SMEs in Manchester are driving technological and cultural change in workplaces across the UK.

“The STAC product suite offers opportunities for both the public and private sectors to make the most of their data and present it in easy, digestible and useful ways to help make better informed and knowledge driven decisions.”
