RLDatix acquires Allocate software

Allocate, a company that specialises in workforce planning and management software, is to be acquired by RLDatix, a risk and compliance solutions company. 

The transaction of the acquisition will be completed in the next few weeks, pending regulatory approval. It will mean RLDatix will have a combined total of 5,000 customers in 26 countries, with over 1,400 staff based in the United Kingdom, the United States, the Republic of Ireland, Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Sweden and North Macedonia.  

Jeff Surges, CEO of RLDatix, commented on the announcement to highlight that RLDatix will combine the workforce management system with its patient safety and provider management tools, aiming to create a holistic view of how human capital factors directly impact patient care.

He said: “In a time when ensuring the wellbeing of healthcare workers is more critical than ever, having the ability to identify, address and act upon workforce-related issues will help drive a culture of safety and high reliability across the continuum of care. We’re thrilled to have Allocate join the RLDatix family and look forward to writing this new and exciting chapter in healthcare GRC.” 

Nick Wilson, CEO, Allocate Software, added: “We are very excited to join forces with RLDatix, the link between patient safety, the welfare of staff and workforce technology is absolute. Over the coming years, providers of healthcare face ongoing workforce shortages alongside increasing demand for care.

“Together, we will positively impact how the workforce is planned, supported and deployed in a way that for the first time means it will be truly underpinned by patient safety and quality.”
