Allocate Software Ranked #1 e-Rostering Solutions Provider by the London Procurement Programme on to Its New Workforce Optimisation Framework

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 26, 2010) - Allocate Software plc (AIM:ALL), the leading provider of workforce optimisation and electronic rostering solutions in the UK healthcare market, is pleased to announce its selection by the London Procurement Programme (LPP) on to its new Workforce Optimisation Framework. Allocate achieved the highest evaluation score in the two categories, e-Rostering Software and Staff Bank Software, against a functionality and value specification required by the LPP.

The framework has been created in response to the growing demand for e-Rostering from NHS organisations across London (Acute, Mental Health and PCT Provider Arms), who are looking toward technology to deliver cost efficiencies for the financially challenging years ahead.

The selection by LPP, following a rigorous tender process, further demonstrates Allocate Software's position as the leading supplier of e-Rostering and workforce optimisation solutions to the NHS. Today, 20 of over 100 NHS Trusts which use MAPS Healthroster are London based (14 Acute, four Mental Health Trusts and two PCTs) and benefit from the significant reductions the e-Rostering solution delivers in workforce costs, with average efficiency savings of 5%.

The detailed evaluation work completed by LPP will deliver considerable time savings to Trusts embarking on e-Rostering projects, as it will reduce the lengthy procurement process and therefore contribute to significant cost savings.

Ian Bowles, Chief Executive of Allocate Software commented: "We are pleased to have been selected for this very important framework, which will help London Trusts procure the highest quality of services whilst ensuring the best value for money. MAPS Healthroster is currently in use in over 100 NHS Trusts, including 20 in London itself. By being part of this framework, we are able to continue offering Trusts across London the latest technology and innovations to deliver improved efficiencies and productivity whilst maintaining the highest levels of care."
