“We are now able to report at corporation level the number of employers we are engaging with, how they can support our curriculum design and the pipeline income generation we are expecting to bring in. Active have provided us with an easy to use operational tool, that is reducing the time staff have to spend completing paperwork and has generally professionalised our service to employers and other clients”

“After several demonstrations with various organisations, we felt that Active had the vision and knowledge to support us. After an initial test and explore of the new system, Active responded positively to our requested changes and ensured that thorough training was delivered to our team, and that we were comfortable with the software.”

We very quickly gained a high level of trust in their technical abilities and have so far enjoyed the process, looking forward to the forthcoming stages.”
