With exceptional, sector-leading software and data-driven insights to back it up, we have the software and services to put you in the driving seat. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, and we’re ready to show you what’s possible.

Customer inspired

Among our core principles, there is one which comes before all the others. We are Customer Inspired. We put our customers first — to make sure our products and service are always industry-leading.

We encourage our customers to think differently and give them the tools to do so. In courts, classrooms, clinics and beyond, our products make a difference by being prepared for anything.

These are just some of the companies we support to provide the solutions they need.



The Advanced Advantage

At Advanced, our primary focus is on our people. We believe that the combination of exceptional software and dedicated individuals is the foundation of our success. Our commitment to quality is unwavering, and our customer-centric approach ensures that we always prioritize your needs.

We are inspired by our customers, and we learn and evolve with them. Our extensive experience has honed our ability to discern genuine needs from mere words. Clients trust us because of our expertise and our proven track record.

While we value our past achievements, we are always looking forward, ensuring that we remain at the cutting edge of technology. Our people are our strength, and we invest in their professional and personal growth. By fostering an environment where they can excel, we ensure that they are equipped to deliver the solutions of the future.

With our state-of-the-art tools and our dedicated team, we are poised to tackle any challenge.

Our history

Founded in 2008, Advanced has had an exciting history, with many important changes down the years. We began as a start-up from an ambitious tech entrepreneur, and we now stand as one of the UK’s biggest software providers. We serve a wide variety of customers and sectors, putting our technology in courts, classrooms, clinics and more.

We were acquired by Vista Equity Partners, and 13 federated businesses with individual teams and processes were transformed into one powerful organisation.

2015 - 2018


Implementing Vista best practice and single systems throughout the company, the Advanced brand as we know it today was born. Our recruitment was revamped, introducing a model that reduced unconscious bias and increased diversity. We hired 500+ high potential new starters to make an impact across the business. Hudman became our first acquisition and our introduction into streamlining this process.

We received reinvestment from Vista Equity Partners, who were joined by BC Partners in the UK. Advanced was poised ready to accelerate.

2018 - 2022


Our single way of working meant we could easily welcome into the Advanced fold acquired organisations who aligned to our values and complemented or extended our Cloud-first software. Internal mobility levels for experienced employees reached 60 per cent for the first time. We introduced regular employee engagement surveys to truly understand how our people felt and our Net Promoter Score (NPS) surveys enabled us to gather invaluable customer feedback.

We can’t stand still. We want to make a difference. Our goal is to become the best.

2022 - 2025


We will do this by committing to our people’s development and wellbeing, listening to what they tell us and being agile enough to respond. Our obsession with our customers, understanding their challenges and opportunities, will help us deliver the highest levels of service. By investing in emerging technologies and acquiring innovative companies we can extend our offerings even further. Underpinning all of this is a clear focus on sustainability, supporting our communities, prioritising good corporate governance and living our values every day.

Building a better tomorrow

Our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy recognises the responsibility and opportunity we have to bring about positive change in the world. It is integral to everything we do. We are focused on helping to build a better tomorrow, using the power of technology to create a healthier planet, support inclusive and diverse communities and address inequity.

“We’re investing in sustainable practices because it’s the right thing to do, but also because we know our staff, customers and partners are looking for leadership and action on the issues that most affect society as a whole.”

Making a difference to our customers

Our solutions and expertise help organisations to realise new possibilities.

The Department for Work and Pensions wanted to move its critical applications, serving 15 million UK citizens, to a modern platform. Our Application Modernisation Team migrated these 11 legacy applications to open systems. This has reduced nightly batch processing time from 90 minutes to less than 15 minutes.
