Our History

Accurate Solutions was founded in 1990 by Keith Taylor and Philip Akers.

In 1992 we were invited by Magdalen College, Oxford to provide them with a new Student Battels system and we took this opportunity to renew our relationship with Oxford Colleges (both Keith and Philip were involved in the development of one of the first student billing systems in Oxford, at Jesus College in 1984).

The Student module proved very successful and we continued to develop the other administration modules required by the other Colleges now using the system.

Over the past 23 years we have provided more and more integrated systems specifically designed for Oxford and Cambridge Colleges and we have gained an intimate and specialized knowledge of the workings of the various constituent departments. We own 100% of all of the Mercury modules used in Oxford and Cambridge and the systems are all developed in-house by our own development staff; because of this, we are able to change any module at the request of any College and can do this quickly and cost effectively. We are now the leading supplier of administration systems to Oxford and Cambridge Colleges as you can see from our client list.

We have also written significant bespoke systems for Informix/IBM (contract maintenance renewal), The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (dog management and breeding, accounts), British Airways (land and air side personnel booking system), The Rolex Watch Company (stock and watch servicing systems), Stowe School (pupil management systems) and Mack Brooks Exhibitions (exhibition and floor plan & multi-currency accounts).
