Our History

After many years’ experience of delivering technology to local government, in 2012 we founded adam (previously known as Matrix SPS).

After signing our first customer contract in 2012, three years later we were rated as a ‘Cool Vendor’ by leading technology & I.T insight firm, Gartner. We’ve achieved a lot in a very short space of time. The next natural step was to give the company a name and brand that symbolised our belief and encapsulated the personality of the business. We embraced the line “To make public service personal again”. That was the value, the commitment we were to focus on.

In September 2015 we became adam.

At the time, we were a team of 17 people with eight customers with twelve contracts. Fast forward a year and the progress has been rapid. We’re now almost 70 strong in terms of staff, we work with 50 customers across 80 contracts in place that are benefiting from our technology every single day.

So our aims are simple. We want to empower those within local authorities to help protect, drive and maximise budgets to achieve the highest standards of services for the benefit of the individual. We want to make things better for service providers so they can view their entire market, reassured with error free, on time payments so they can grow their business. But most of all we are here for the individual. Whether they receive care through the local authority or organise it themselves, we believe people shouldn’t have to wait a moment longer for change when we have the tools at our disposal to humanise and improve public services.

We are now widely recognised at the leaders in our field and have a range of products in both local government and the NHS. We are though a business that is continually looking forward and have recently taken our primary technology and packaged it up into a direct to consumer offering. This means that we now have an impact across all entry points of social care.
