BASINGSTOKE, England, September 27, 2011 -

CONNECT™ changes everything.  No longer do individual departments, with separate workflow processes, running separate information systems need to remain independent from each other. Increase public safety by removing the risk of missing vital pieces of information held in systems that are costly to run, inflexible, insecure and unable to integrate with each other.  Dynamic information management is the future for a modern fire service if it wants to prepare for the full impact of budget cuts and stay ahead of the constantly changing demands within communities and local government.  

As budgets cuts begin to bite all Fire Services in the UK are expected to invest to save and ACTIVE Solutions Europe Ltd has responded by partnering with the world’s leading software company.  Using Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 as its platform, CONNECT™ becomes a single source of information replacing multiple databases and systems from across key departments within the fire service including Community Fire Safety, Technical Fire Safety, Fire Investigation and Operations.

Steve Ainsworth, CEO at ACTIVE Solutions, said, “ACTIVE has a wealth of experience within the public safety sector and CONNECT™ has been developed in response to our customers needs.  Taking our knowledge and combining it with Microsoft technology we have created a single solution that is guaranteed to always use the latest technology to help Fire and Rescue Services save money and most importantly save lives.”  

Invited by Microsoft to be one of their twelve high potential ISV’s, ACTIVE Solutions Europe Ltd have now developed the first cloud based solution dedicated solely to dynamically managing information within the UK Fire and Rescue Service.  

“CONNECT changes everything.  A single and fully integrated solution that offers the ability to complete all the functions of a modern day fire service,” said Richard Aspin, Head of Emergency Services MSFT UK.
