Midmarket business software provider Access Technology Group is launching a dedicated health and social care division following its latest acquisition.

Access, based at Stratford St Mary, between Ipswich and Colchester, already has a strong foothold in the sector with arpimd 400 customers using its finance, HR, payroll, and domiciliary care solutions.

It is now adding to this with the acquisition of care home management solutions provider CareBlox, taking the division’s customer numbers to 550 and making Access one of the leading health and social care software providers in the UK.

Chris Bayne, chief executive at Access, said: “Our vertical focused strategy is successful in the professional services, not-for-profit, and supply chain management sectors. We have a great deal of experience and expertise in the health and social care sector, so it made strategic sense to serve this area with its own dedicated division.

“We’ve had great success with our finance, HR and domiciliary care solutions, and with the acquisition of CareBlox we’re also able to focus on the needs of residential care providers.

“Our new and existing customers can benefit from an organisation-wide solution from a single supplier, which will allow them to focus on their core mission, providing quality healthcare.”

Ian Hargreaves, managing director of CareBlox, which has more than 1,000 care homes across 150 companies using its cloud-based solutions, added: “As part of Access we’re going to be able to take CareBlox to a wider audience. The portfolio of products we can offer will enable us to do something the competition can’t; a range of best-of-breed integrated solutions to help care providers operate more efficiently.”

Access’ has been on a path of strategic and organic growth since its Lyceum Capital backed management buyout in March 2011.

Mr Bayne added: “Our ongoing business strategy is to provide solutions that meet the needs of the whole organisation, delivering full transparency and visibility of information across every department.

“By focussing on specific verticals, where we have inhouse and acquired expertise, we can grow our footprint with existing customers, and offer something unique to our prospects.”
