Belfast-based Datactics, which provides software and services to large organisations that need to improve and control the quality of the data held in their computer systems, including automate matching, classification and fixing of crime, citizen and asset data for government and the police - has received a Par Equity led £2m investment boost.

The AI-enabled platform allows staff who are not IT experts to efficiently deduplicate, clean-up and enrich the information in their lines of business. For businesses that have information spread across many databases, the products enable them to give their customers a better quality, more joined-up service, while reducing their costs. 

Datactics operates in the fast-growing data and data quality management industry. Its key customer base is highly regulated sectors such as financial services and government agencies and the platform is preconfigured to meet their specific requirements. Sales have grown strongly over the past twelve months and it has won new clients in Amsterdam, New York, and London. Datactics, which has a team of 50, will use the new funding to accelerate its growth by investing in sales resources focused on London and New York. 

Stuart Harvey, CEO at Datactics said: “It’s clear that in 2021 businesses are stating that data quality has never been more important. We are seeing major investment in data governance worldwide, with firms investing heavily in data management tools for governance. Our core strength in the area of self-service data quality and matching is an essential requirement for many firms wishing to identify broken data and fix it. Our platform allows companies to centralise the controls necessary for data management but, crucially, federate out the fixing of broken data to subject matter experts – the people who know what good looks like.”

Aidan MacMillan, Investment Manager at Par Equity said: “Datactics has an extremely strong technology platform and some great clients. Its revenues have more than doubled in the last two years and we are confident this growth trajectory will continue. Data management tools are increasingly important across all industries. The growth opportunities are very attractive.  The Datactics AI solution is designed to be easily explainable, which makes risk averse clients, like banks, more comfortable with adopting the technology. We’re very pleased to continue to our support of Datactics.”
