Our Heritage

We may be a new name but we have been working together on ground-breaking projects for over a decade

Our Foundations

Agilysis was setup by an experienced team with a background in transport safety. Through our work with Road Safety Analysis (an associated company, see below) all of us gained an incredible amount of experience in areas of analytics, networks, data visualisation, evaluation, intervention design, and behaviour change.

As we began to work across multiple sectors and disciplines it became clear that our combined knowledge and skills would prove valuable to a wider market and the decision was made to create Agilysis to service a growing client base.

Guiding Principles

As both researchers and practitioners in social marketing we are in a perfect position to act as translators for our clients.

We are absolutely focussed on understanding ‘what works’, using evidence from all available data sources, as well as published research. We also understand the practical requirements of those delivering training, campaigns and public relations exercises.

Our principles are therefore directed towards ensuring that realistic, effective interventions can deliver outputs and outcomes for clients.

Founded in 2010 to carry forward the DfT funded MAST Online project, Road Safety Analysis (RSA) has become a market leader in supplying innovative, creative and competitive services to the road safety sector. Built on the principles of social enterprise, RSA has developed and delivered a range of road safety services that are evidence based and highly cost effective.

From April 2017 RSA will focus on its original aims of providing high-quality analysis tools to the UK road safety sector, as well as promoting best practice in the field both at home and around the world.

Principally known for the award-winning www.crashmap.co.uk website, Insight Warehouse provides transport data services to clients from multiple sectors. From members of the public and concerned community groups to independent transport planners local authorities, hundreds of thousands of people use the site every year.

Insight Warehouse has also lead the development of a new, national map of UK speed limits which is network-independent, and also provided risk modelling solutions for the insurance industry with a focus on telematics providers.
