About Integra Associates
Integra Associates was established in 1995 by Mark Bloomer, a chartered accountant with previous experience as a financial systems consultant, when he saw an opportunity to create a new model to provide real value in financial software consultancy. Since then, Integra Associates has grown to include core employees, complemented by a strong network of highly qualified and experienced associates. Over that time, Integra Associates has built a large satisfied customer base, and has some very impressive credentials from a variety of organisations across a range of sectors.
In November 2011 Integra Associates became an official preferred partner to UNIT4 Agresso, the developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) and business management solutions.

We do not draw a line between ourselves and our customers
Integra members pride themselves on their empathetic relationships with customers. We are prepared to become involved at all levels and to act with loyalty and integrity towards our customers. We work closely with our customers to develop solutions that are sensitive to an organisation’s goals, resources and capacity for change.
Impartial and Independent
Integra has a truly independent focus; allowing us to provide objective and realistic advice on functionality, timescales and true return on investment. With no software sales targets or vendor issues, we have the freedom to be impartial.
Poachers turned gamekeepers
Each Integra team member has first hand experience of financial systems implementations in financial end user roles and as applications consultants for software houses. Having worked on both sides of the fence gives us a unique insight into the implementation process and allows us to act on your behalf to get the best from the supplier and the system.
Unique associates model
Integra’s unique associates model comprises a core team of directly employed consultants, and a network of independent consultants. This model encourages consultants to develop direct relationships with clients, giving unrivalled responsiveness, flexibility, dedication, continuity of relationship and a real motivation to ensure the success of clients’ projects.
Through this approach we create a solid foundation to all our projects, and ensure that our clients receive the best value for money.
