What Can We Offer?

We have over 25 years of experience providing cloud software platforms to underpin efficiency, productivity, safety, and high availability to NHS trusts, local authorities, public sector services, charities, and commercial operations.

Good quality asset management is essential in delivering a sustainable, efficient, and profitable business. Ultimately, it helps organisations make better decisions, improve cost controls, demonstrate regulatory compliance, build trust, and manage risk.

As the healthcare market continues to evolve through innovation, we are seeing the convergence between digitally driven applications and the advance in technology associated with fixed and movable medical equipment. Looking beyond the typical cohabitation of equipment and technology planning and design, our team will look at how you currently provide asset management, consumable management, and bespoke services such as ‘Make Ready’. The team will provide a GAP analysis of your current processes benchmarked against the MHRA Managing Medical Devices 2021 and identify where new and innovative solutions may produce not only safe, compliant practices but save money in doing so.
