Working smarter

About us

We’re in business to help people run their businesses in a stress-free successful way. Everything we do is geared to finding simpler, more efficient and productive ways of doing things. We know that outdated awkward systems and processes can be hugely frustrating to work with. We take you on a journey that looks at your processes in a new way to get you working smarter.

Innovative thinking and cutting edge solutions

We help businesses manage their assets, their security and access. There’s no server room, cumbersome hardware or dated equipment. Instead, we use the cloud. And we think it’s a pretty good place to be.

It provides remote access and continuous visibility for us and you, and you get software upgrades and updates in real time. Things run more smoothly and with less stress than before. And that means everyone can get on with the job at hand.

If it was our business, what would we do?

We treat your business as if it was our own because our success is measured by your satisfaction. Relationships and trust are at the heart of Altivate. We really value face to face collaboration and if that means getting on a plane and coming to you, we’ll be there.

We ensure your whole team has a thorough understanding of the journey your business is on and we’re there to train, motivate and coach for as long as we’re in partnership.
