NEXTRA was originally founded in November 2000 as RealFlair and is a UK-based developer of the NEXTRA software suite. The company was originally formed to create the Platform Bee application engine that all our solutions are based on. This technology allows us to develop solutions up to ten times faster than using conventional software coding whilst still maintaining excellent upgradability and security.
We recognised around 2004 that our technology was particularly suited to Human Resource Management due to the it's ability to model complex business and contractual rules whilst still maintaining a single code-base to make upgrades easy. With this decision in place, we won our first major clients in 2005 and built from there
In parallel to developing direct clients, we also started to work with other software developers that produced complimentary technologies and created interfaces into a number of market leading software vendors such as Available 4 and Advanced
With sucessful deployments to a number of joint clients, RealFlair merged with Available4 in 2012 to become NEXTRA and has grown since to provide more than 30,000 UK and European users with our solutions.
NEXTRA helps companies reduce staff costs by up to 27% through more accurate matching of staffing levels and work patterns to customer demand. This improves customer service and can result in better working patterns for staff.
