Our company’s story began in 1991 with the first significant contract awarded in 1995, where our first products helping British defence organisations optimise force deployment and training management. It soon became clear that the same skills and expertise could be applied to other organisations with complex, multi-skilled workforces, enabling us to win our first contract with the NHS (UK Health Service) in 2006. Since then the Allocate’s reputation and experience in managing and optimising complex work force environments has increased considerably. We are now the leading provider of workforce optimisation and governance risk and compliance solutions in the UK NHS market and also providing these services and solutions to Healthcare customers in 11 countries worldwide. If other markets are included Allocate is now present in 13 countries in total. This has contributed to continued success and growth (39% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR)) during the last five years and today over one million people are deployed in over 700 organisations using our software and services.
Today we have a global presence, with UK headquarters in London, regional offices in the UK, Australia, Malaysia, Sweden and USA, providing services and support to an international customer base across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
Our strong organic growth has been complemented by carefully selected acquisitions, adding six new companies to the Group during the last four years, our recent acquistions include:
