About us

We are the most powerful voice in retail

Transforming retail teams and empowering them to achieve more by taking the hassle out of team communication.

Our purpose

Everything starts with a conversation

The most natural way we share and build on our ideas is through communicating. Our tech makes these conversations happen seamlessly across your teams, offices, stores just as easily as they would if you were all gathered round the same table. That’s what VoCoVo is all about.

The problem

2 billion frontline staff are without the right communication tools

That’s 80% of the global workforce doing their job on-the-go. Or 8/10 employees who can’t access traditional communication tools like emails, intranets and to-do lists without interrupting their work. According to Gallup, only 15% of employees feel engaged at work—reducing their productivity and increasing staff turnover. And with poor communication costing companies an average of $62 million dollars per year, it’s clear that if your people are mobile, your workplace communication should be too.

Our solution

Building the most powerful voice in retail

Rewind to the late 90s. Our Founder and CEO Rob Gamlin is approached by a leading UK retailer with a problem. Improve customer experience, reduce queues at the tills, and unite their workforce to be better organised and operate safer. Rob knew they needed a bespoke communication tool to solve their team’s problems.

Our history

Our goal is to give everything a voice

Working with our retail partners, we’ve evolved to create the VoCoVo Headset. It changed the way hundreds of retailers talk to each other and help their customers everyday on the shop floor. Colleagues could have natural, two-way conversations with full-duplex speech, and more customers could move through the self-checkouts. No waiting required.

Today, VoCoVo connects over 250,000 colleagues all over the world. And counting.


Rapid results and a mission to grow

We grew from eight employees to 50 in 18 months. In 2019, we achieved another 80% year-on-year growth to add to our 1029% three-year growth in 2018. In the same year, Deloitte named us the UK’s 34th fastest-growing tech company in their Tech Fast-50. We were regional winners in our category and the only communications company to make the list.


Fully committed to acting responsibly & sustainably

The wellbeing of our employees, customers, suppliers, partners and local communities is our priority. 

This year we are proud to announce our achievement of a Silver EcoVadis Medal placing us in the top 25% of all companies rated by EcoVadis. 

To date EcoVadis has rated over 75,000 organisations driving them to make more sustainable decisions to positively impact the environment, foster transparency and drive innovation.
