Diamond Sponsor


Agility is currently being used by state of the art health facilities across the globe to help create efficient, highly functioning Healthcare environments for clinical, support staff and patients alike. It is being used to coordinate and manage a vast range of hard and soft services across entire sites including; help desk, maintenance, catering, logistics, porter movements, waste management and security and control of external vehicles.

Agility provides a single, sophisticated operational platform whilst ensuring ease-of-use for each user. Simple screens allow quick and easy interaction with Agility directly by support and clinical staff thorough mobile devices, touchscreens or self-service terminals. Helpdesk operators and reception staff can also quickly enter telephone and face-to-face service requests. Data for each request is consistently and quickly captured, then triaged and actioned as required, all within Agility. Agility is flexible, and has many standard integrations in place with other commonly used systems, for example the Real Time Location System (RTLS) and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV). These system integration capabilities and proven results really set Agility apart.
Providing transparent and auditable performance measurement is a central part of what Agility delivers for our Healthcare customers. Provision of each service can be continually measured and monitored in Agility against KPI’s and SLA’s by quickly and accurately allocating each job to the correct parameters using multi-level question sets.

Agility is developed by SoftSols Group, a global software business, established in 1983 with significant experience in providing facilities, service and maintenance management solutions within the Healthcare sector. SoftSols are a dynamic, flexible team who are able to work in partnerships or independently, delivering projects to agreed timescales and budgets.  We are very proud of the service, value and capabilities we have been able to deliver into the Healthcare sector and to be associated with the forthcoming IHEA conference.
