Ninth Wave is a UK-based software and consultancy company, established in 1995 and specialising in providing programme, project, resource and IT management products and services.

Ninth Wave’s SmartCore solution is a proven web-based management support system. Our clients use SmartCore for a range of applications, including programme, portfolio, project, risk, resource, asset, fault, change and document management.  SmartCore is entirely configurable via the web browser to meet a wide range of organisational and individual management information needs.  It provides a shared environment for thousands of users over the internet, integrates with a range of other applications, and offers powerful and flexible dashboards and reports.  SmartCore provides a tried and tested solution that can rapidly be configured by business users, without programming, to meet current and future requirements, delivered and supported by a skilled and experienced Ninth Wave team.  SmartCore may be installed in-house, or hosted from Ninth Wave’s own secure servers.

We have implemented SmartCore for a number of leading organisations worldwide, including Avis, BBC Scotland, Chordiant Software, Centrica, E.On, the Financial Times, Kiln Group, KPMG, Lloyds Banking Group (enterprise-wide), Phoenix Group, the UK Rail Safety and Standards Board, Richmond Borough Council, Reality Telecom, the Transglobal Secure Collaboration Program and Wincor Nixdorf.
