John Ronan – Strategic Manager, Health and Safety at Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles
I spent nearly 2 years looking for a cloud based software package to manage our accident and incident reporting in the leisure facilities that we manage in the North West of England. Every time I thought I’d found the perfect solution, I realised it didn’t meet the full specification I wanted. Finally my frustrations were ended when I was introduced to Innove Solutions. Not only did they tick every one of my boxes, they gave me far more besides. They proposed a secure, bespoke, web based database package powered by SQL Server to replace our existing Excel and Access based system.
Working alongside me and my colleagues, they patiently listened to what we wanted, went away to design the system and then let us loose on the prototype, making all the tweaks we asked for without any fuss. By the end of the project I felt like John Keogh was a work colleague rather than a consultant.
The AIR Database and Reporting system is now working a dream and all our staff are raving about it. My end of month reporting has gone from a full weekend job to less than 2 hours. We can see what is happening at all our sites at the touch of a button and the standard of our reports has improved dramatically. We are finding that the after service provided by Innove Solutions is also top notch, they have even helped us with problems that have been down to issues at our end.
I can’t praise John Keogh and Innove Solutions enough, you won’t get a better solution to your software needs, they go far beyond the extra mile.
Rob Gillies – Executive Medical Director at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust
The Trust was delighted to work with Innove Solutions in summer 2016 to develop the new wayfinding app. Thanks to Innove Solutions we were one of the first trusts in the UK to introduce an app like this.
Hospitals can sometimes be daunting places to get around. This new app is designed to make visits to the hospital run more smoothly for patients and visitors. There are clear instructions on getting to all departments at the hospital from whichever entrance people arrive at.
Feedback so far has been good. The app is very user friendly.
Jane Hynes – Healthy Weight Manager at Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust
We have worked with Innove Solutions since they developed a bespoke call centre database system for us in 2005 and have maintained and constantly improved it over the last 10 years that they have carried out work for us. The system they developed is a multi-user Call Centre Triage system that has changed out of all recognition from the original system. They have been very willing to change the software as our needs as a customer have changed. New reports are constantly being added to the system and they have altered the system to do the following over the years.
- Integrated Smart Card readers to dump data into the system
- Created a web service to link data to the ADASTRA booking system on NHS Net
- Added an SMS facility into our database that has become invaluable as a communications tool
- Liaised with a number of our suppliers to ease the secure integration of data to and from our system
- Create Android and iOS mobile apps to link to our internal systems
We have always found Innove Solutions very easy to deal with as a supplier and they are very proactive in meeting our needs. The software is delivered on time and their support has been invaluable in the time that we have been dealing with them. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as a company with a proven track record in software development.
Dean Kingsbury – Managing Director at My Local Motors
We approached Innove Solutions approximately two years ago to build the MyLocalMotors website. After a successful and trouble-free launch, it now features more than 60,000 automotive businesses and and makes use of a number of high-end technologies such as data caching to ensure that it’s extremely quick, despite the complexities of location-based search functionality.
It goes without saying that we’re incredibly impressed with the professionalism and flexibility of Innove Solutions. Such a large project inevitably results in parts of the brief changing during the development and Innove Solutions were very reasonable in adapting and helping us achieve everything we required. Their easy-going nature helped significantly in communicating our vision.
In addition to the main website, Innove Solutions developed mobile apps for both iOS and Android devices. The way in which they both use the same core search engine as the website is great for consistency and their mere presence adds to our brand image.
Justine Molyneux – CEO at Involve Northwest
I have known and worked with John Keogh from Innove Solutions for over 15 years and in that time I have found him to be a natural problem solver and an inspirational support when developing solutions to IT and software. He develops ideas into products that I have found have been very beneficial to the business. He is an excellent listener and communicator and would be an asset to any company or customer he works with.
Liz Hesketh – Managing Director at Horse and More
Five years ago we set up a website which took a year to build. We were never happy with it – it was hard to maintain and regularly out of action. We approached Innove Solutions and as a result embarked upon the job of setting up another website up using Shopify. John Keogh was fantastic. Working together we set up the new site in just six weeks. We love it. Thanks to John’s sage advice and guidance the site looks professional, it’s easy to maintain, fully mobile friendly and integrated with social media. Not only did John help us set the site up, but he also made sure it was properly integrated with MailChimp and Google Shopping. As a result we’ve grown our sales and reduced the amount of time we spend on administration. John helped us through the process doing all the clever programming stuff. He even produced what I call “idiot’s guides” so we could independently maintain the site going forward ourselves. The transition (from our perspective) was completely seamless. We are now dying to get going on other projects and will of course be using Innove!
