1994. 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’….
Our Founder Paul Smith recognises inefficiencies within the UK’s emergency services, that were being caused by outdated systems and siloed data. Active begins supplying data modelling solutions for the Ambulance service, and Hospital Trusts which soon extends beyond the NHS to Fire and Rescue services across the UK.
‘Membership Management Online’ is developed in conjunction with one of our NHS clients – enabling Trusts to perform targeted marketing to recruit new trust members. MMO is purchased in 2008 by Capita.
Our core business centres around our bespoke information management solutions for Education; and Fire and Rescue Services. A new partnership with Burning Glass Technologies means we are now official resellers of Labour Insight – a unique tool widely used within education, and our customers now include many local authorities. Active Solutions becomes Active informatics.
Now MS Dynamics partners, we continue to provide the very best information management solutions across a growing range of industries; each with a common goal – to digitally transform and grow their business.
