Tech firm signs at science park

Manchester Science Parks has welcomed mobile phone software firm, Name Your Number, to its Lloyd Street North site off Oxford Road.

NYN provides white label software that allows mobile phone networks to generate new revenue by offering personalised mobile numbers. The business also provides networks with behaviour consultancy to help gain and retain customers.

NYN has offices in Spain and Argentina and chose Manchester Science Parks for its first UK base. The company has taken 700 sq ft on a one-year lease at an undisclosed sum.

Attiq Qureshi, chief technology officer at NYN, said: "While we consider ourselves a global business, we felt having a base at MSP allowed us to work collaboratively with our technology partners as well as take advantage of other business support organisations in the wider Manchester area.

"Locating at MSP was a natural choice for us. The fact that it is a home to so many innovation-led businesses means that we can link in with other tenants to further develop our technologies, while maintaining our international profile due to the site's proximity to the airport."

MSP operates four bases in Manchester and Salford.
