Ostara Systems Ltd has emerged as one of the UK’s leading providers in the Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) sector. Established over a decade ago by an experienced team of facilities management and software professionals, the Ostara CAFM Solution continues to be developed and is hosted in the UK, and is now used in 13 different countries, and has been translated into 9 different languages.
Rather than focus simply on maintaining a database of client information, the Ostara ideology is one that is driven by a focus on a number of key elements, including the often-complex area of building compliance. When used alongside Ostara’s financial control configuration, including accrual spend and budget management facilities, clients have the ability to gain cost control and savings, and combined with their powerful reporting tools, clients have access to real-time data regarding all aspects of their maintenance environment, meaning that clients are able to make more informed decisions.
Ostara is proud to provide its software solution and additional services to a range of blue-chip clients, from the likes of Primark and Whitbread (including the Premier Inn and Beefeater brands), to Santander and Everyman Cinemas. Every client possesses their own unique requirements, which in turn impose different demands on the Ostara CAFM system. This challenge is ably managed by the software, as its flexibility allows it to be configured to accommodate a single source contractor model, as well as a regional contractor base. The system is offered with an unlimited number of users as standard.
The Ostara Systems team goes beyond the initial setup of mobilising new clients. This is done by building relationships and ensuring users are provided with training and advice on industry best practice as they evolve and enhance their operational processes, supported by the Ostara System.
Since 1995, Asckey Data Services Ltd. has been providing specialised software solutions to a wide range of organisations within the private and public sector. We listen to our customer’s needs and connect them with, or develop, the software that will drive operational efficiency.
Facilities Management Software
Our fmfirst® is a comprehensive facilities management software product suite, designed to aid with the demands of modern estates and facilities management. Our applications can be used independently or they can be integrated with each other, enabling you to build your own comprehensive facilities management toolkit.
As an organisation, quality, data security and compliance lie at the heart of everything we do. To ensure consistency in product quality, service support and data security, Asckey operate in accordance with both ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management) and ISO 27001:2013 (Information Security Management) accreditations across the business: from recruitment and training, system design and testing, to implementation and customer support. All Asckey cloud products are managed and delivered from our Tier 3 rated Data Centre, which itself is also ISO 27001 accredited.
Our hosting customers develop software applications for the health and social care marketplace; they then look to us to provide their clients with secure and reliable access to their applications via the HSCN network.

Our team of expert in-house developers work with you to develop bespoke applications that are invaluable to your business, ensuring that your specific requirements are at the heart of our management processes. We understand that no two businesses are the same, which means that no two business applications will be the same. The demands of your users and customers are unique and constantly changing, which inevitably means that “off-the-shelf applications” can compromise your business decisions.
