Believe it or not, we have now been in business for 12 months. It’s worth taking few minutes to review how it all began.

In Sep 2013, Manoj joined Phil Brown, CEO of Causeway Technologies to help spin out a new technology, Livestax which has been in development for sometime. At the end of October 2014, Manoj left Livestax and Causeway with the blessings of Phil to setup a new company to commercialise Livestax framework. In December 2014, UnifiedVU Ltd was incorporated.
