A short history of Active

We believe in helping you manage change within your business – simply and efficiently. We have been providing data management solutions to businesses and public sector organisations for almost 30 years. Here’s us in a nutshell.


It was the year the national lottery started, the channel tunnel opened, and 0.5% of the UK had access to the internet.  It was also an important year for us – it’s the year it all started for Active, although back then we were known as ‘Active Solutions’….



Active’s Founder Paul Smith recognises inefficiencies within the newly formed NHS Hospital Trusts and District Health Authorities, that are being caused by outdated systems and siloed data.  We begin supplying bespoke spatial analysis tool ‘TSM’ to assist with their commissioning and service planning activities.


Our consultancy team begins working with Ambulance Trusts to achieve new, challenging response targets; and with Fire Services on fire incident analysis and fire prevention.  We begin supplying systems to Post-16 Education providers to help them assess learning demand and teaching distribution, support mergers and transport to learning initiatives.


Working with fire services, we develop ‘Phoenix’ – a powerful workload modelling and deployment application which analyses mobilisations and resources to model current performance.


‘Membership Management Online’ is created to address needs of new NHS Foundation Trusts and their member recruitment, engagement and retention targets.  MMO is sold to Capita in 2008.


A partnership with Burning Glass Technologies saw us become UK resellers of Labour Insight – a Labour Market Intelligence tool widely used within education and local authorities.  Active Solutions becomes Active informatics in this year.



Now as MS Dynamics partners, we continue to provide the very best data management solutions to colleges, independent training providers and public services; each with a common goal – to increase efficiency and drive organisational success.

25 years and counting

2019 marked our 25th birthday and we are very proud of the difference we have made and continue to make to organisational efficiency and success.  Constantly evolving, we continue to develop solutions across both the private and public sector.  We remain a close-knit team of specialists – dedicated to providing lasting information solutions to organisations across the UK.
