I have worked 17 years for Activus, during this time I've seen the company blossom, always with an open and family feeling. At the moment I’m in the Product Improvement Team which involves investigating Client issues escalated from the Support team, some development work on raised BAU issues and helping team members using my knowledge of Actisure. When I first started we had a 1 room office in Bristol and I worked at a client’s site, since then we have moved office 3 times to bigger and better premises. Our client list has grown from 2 to the client situation which just keeps growing.
I’ve been in the Activus Test team as an automation tester since October 2013. My CV contained no experience in IT as my background was as a freelance animator, working for Aardman Animations among others. I had already begun studying for my ISTQB Software testing foundation and had my exam booked when I applied for the job here. Activus is a great company to work for, one thing that is really important to me is feeling valued as an individual. The immediate Activus company is a good size for this, and there are plenty of opportunity to socialise with my colleagues so we get to know each other as people. My role has changed as we've grown and I've had some great opportunities.
This year we went Agile, a group of us were given the opportunity to become accredited scrum masters through a 2 day course.As part of our recent transition to Agile my role has changed to a split of scrum master and Automation developer, which means there is plenty of variety for me.
I have been working for Activus as a Functional Consultant for 18 months, previously I was a business analyst working in an internal agile development team.I particularly like the variety of the work which includes using my previously gained business analysis skills and combining these with opportunities to work directly with external clients.
Activus has given me the empowerment to explore business processes and requirements with my clients through managing my own work stream whilst providing me with experienced consultant support where I have needed it. All the Functional Consultants work as a team and everyone is willing to help their colleagues understand features in Actisure that they may not have experienced before. My job varies drastically from week to week (and even day to day!) depending on the priorities of the project I am working on. This can include; running my own workshops with clients to show them what Actisure can do and how it can be used to meet their business processes; configuring settings within Actisure to support the clients needs; discussing requirements for identified system change with a client, documenting these and communicating them to the development team; managing, recording and escalating any risks or issues identified; testing and learning new functionality; training or helping my colleagues; all the while continually broadening my knowledge of the system through new topics as I experience them.When I started, I was very new to Actisure and its broad spectrum of features. Initially it felt quite daunting! But over my time here, with each subject I have had to manage with the client, I have become more adept and independent at understanding how Actisure can be configured to meet a client’s needs.
After only a year and a half, I am now someone that both experienced and new colleagues come too to ask questions on my areas of expertise in how the system works
Having joined Activus with a focus on International business, I have been very impressed with the support from other business units within the group. There is an impressive depth of knowledge relating to the health industry that can be accessed and a willingness throughout the business to help colleagues. Activus has a global footprint, but we are continuing to expand the reach for Cegedim solutions focusing both on mature and emerging markets.
My role involves making sure we address the needs of our exisiting clients and be able to support the demands of potential new clients; this requires a knowledgable and flexible team to work with health insurance companies right across the world addressing the different regulations and market pressures.
I joined Cegedim Rx as a service desk analyst in 2012. When I started working for the company I was open to the different career options that were on offer and the company was supportive in helping me to gain experience across all of the different service teams. Over my first two years with the company I gained a broad range of skills, supporting customers in our connectivity team, customer care team and problem management team. The breadth of experience that I had gained in such a short time was recognised and I was invited to take up as a position in the newly created service level management team in 2014. My role involves representing the interests of our key customers within the business and I get great satisfaction from delivering service improvements, building business relationships and increasing the value that the company delivers to customers. Cegedim Rx is a nice place to work; there is a friendly atmosphere, the business is supportive of new ideas and innovation, and it is an open and supportive environment to work in. The company also invests heavily in its employees, it has helped me to develop through on the job training as well as gaining professional qualifications.
I started out on the service desk over ten years ago and I have worked in a variety of roles to gain the experience that I needed to get to my current role as a test analyst. My ambition to work in testing began soon after I joined the company when I had the opportunity to work with the development team to support new releases of our software from a service point of view. When a new role as beta analyst was created in our release team, I jumped at the chance to work as the link between service and development whilst supporting customers who were testing our new software. I’ve been working in the testing team for a few years now and I’m currently working on Healthi Dispenser, which is a major future product and gives me the opportunity to work with new and interesting technology. Pharmacy technology has changed immensely in the last ten years, especially with the introduction of electronic prescriptions, and whilst the company was already the market leader when I joined, we have become increasingly successful, gaining major corporate customers such as Asda and Superdrug. The company offers really good employee support, way more than the standard benefits, especially around health and wellbeing and flexible working.
I joined Cegedim Rx in 2008 as an admin temp in the sales team. I was soon taken on in a permanent role, giving me the opportunity to help customers and to actively sell our range of products. Seven years ago I was offered a newly created role in the marketing department and the company provided both internal and professional training to help me to build the knowledge I needed to be successful in the role. For the past three years I’ve been working as the company’s marketing lead and I now have overall responsibility for our marketing offering. Cegedim Rx is a relaxed and supportive place to work with great benefits and a positive, friendly atmosphere.
I’ve worked at Cegedim Rx for over 20 years now and my current role is project manager/scrum master in the development team. Before working at Cegedim I worked in a pharmacy and I brought this experience with me when I first joined the company on the service desk. Over the years I’ve worked as a QA analyst during the launch of Pharmacy Manager, introduced Information Manager as part of the product team and worked as the project manager during the introduction of electronic prescriptions. In my current role as scrum master I oversee our agile processes and the teams developing our latest product, Healthi Services. I’ve been given great opportunities at Cegedim Rx and have been provided with training and developmental support at every step. During my time here the company has grown massively and we have brilliant benefits including the pension scheme, flexible working and support with health and wellbeing.
