Allocate Software plc Unveils Next Generation Bank Staff Management Solution for Healthcare Market

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - Allocate Software plc (AIM:ALL), the leading provider of workforce optimisation solutions, today unveiled BSMS, its Next Generation Bank Staff Management Solution, designed with the NHS for the NHS.

Following the acquisition of Baum Hart & Partners in December 2008 and Key IT Systems in April 2008, Allocate Software has invested significant resources into the development of its next generation bank staff management solution, this includes over 100 years of Bank Staff Management product experience. By combining the best of its three Bank/Temporary Staffing products (BSMS, StaffBank and MAPS Healthroster Bank module) Allocate Software has developed the Next Generation Bank Staff Management Solution for NHS Trusts.

BSMS empowers NHS Trusts by automating the planning of bank and agency staff and reporting across hospitals. A high-performance, simple to use one screen one click, interoperable solution to ESR (electronic staff records) and other systems, it improves continuity of care, ease of reporting, saves time, and reduces errors while promoting regulatory compliance and improving financial returns.

Steve Dyos, Resourcing Manager, Temporary Staffing Services, Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust commented: "I am extremely impressed with the look of the new BSMS solution; the layout seems to be simpler giving easy access to additional information. It was good to hear that the new BSMS solution will have a wide variety of management information reports which are more detailed and tailored around temporary staffing usage."

Commenting on the announcement, Ian Bowles, Allocate Software's CEO said: "We are delighted to launch our second generation Bank Staff Management Solution, BSMS. Customers have shared with us that they are extremely impressed with the new look and feel of the new BSMS solution along with the fast and flexible reporting features. We have a very strong installed customer base of over 200 Trusts, including NHSP currently using our Bank Staff Management Solutions. By combining the key strengths of all three of our leading Bank Staff Management products we have a unique, functionally rich offering for all Healthcare facilities. The second generation product is available as a standalone application or as a fully integrated solution with MAPS Healthroster, the most commonly used e-rostering solution in the NHS."
