We help to change lives every day

Our customers are national governments and international health bodies. They’re also police forces, emergency services, local authorities and housing providers, all working to prevent harm and provide the right support.

We build software and services that deliver great outcomes.

Our customers inspire
everything we do

We know them.
We’ve been them.
We are them.

We’ve been health screeners and benefits officers. We’ve worked in housing, probation and for the emergency services. And we’re all service users too. Our understanding of the challenges fires our ambition to overcome them.

Our energy comes from a job well done. When we work in biometrics or predictive analytics it’s so that customers on tight budgets can find the person in need amid the thousands they serve.

We're service
innovators too

We fine-tune our software to deliver great performance in the cloud. And react at lightning speed to customer challenges, running critical services remotely within hours of a call. We align our tech to match their needs so they can focus on what matters.
