A bit about us

1994

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’….

1994

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inefficiencies within the newly formed NHS Hospital Trusts and District Health Authorities, that are being caused by outdated systems and siloed data.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.

1998

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.

2004

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

2007

‘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.

2012

A new partnership with Burning Glass Technologies means we are now official UK resellers of Labour Insight – a unique Labour Market Intelligence tool widely used within education and local authorities.  Active Solutions becomes Active informatics in this year.
