14th March 2022 – Beech Tree's BCN Group, the managed IT, cloud and digital transformation specialist, has continued its expansion strategy into the healthcare sector with the acquisition of application and analytics business, Public View, following last year’s purchase of analytics, data and automation specialists, Cloud2.
UK-based cloud application company, Public View, is at the forefront of providing performance monitoring and benchmarking services to the NHS underpinned by Microsoft, .Net, and Azure Cloud Platform. Public View promptly collates data from hundreds of public data sources automatically and combines them into a single intuitive portal for NHS leaders. Public View subscribers, either via desktops or mobile devices, can instantly identify areas that are high performing, progressing well, or a cause for concern.

Public View strengthens these existing services to create a powerful and market leading portfolio of analytics, reporting and benchmarking services to the healthcare sector. BCN have been quick to identify similar needs in other sectors and are already transferring this capability to benefit other organisations in housing associations and financial services.
Rob Davies, CEO of BCN Group, said: “The acquisition of Public View allows us to provide existing and new clients with a complete and comprehensive suite of cloud based analytics services delivered by skilled and experienced experts. It not only complements and strengthens our existing market position offering but takes our combined capability to the next level and further establishes BCN as a key service provider across the public sector and healthcare arena. I am delighted to welcome Public View to the BCN family, and to work alongside its incredible team as we seamlessly merge its products, services and processes into the wider BCN Group.”
Tom Ridgeway, Founder at Public View, said: “We have achieved great things since launching Public View to the market in 2018 and have established the business as an innovative leader in the benchmarking analytics industry. I’m incredibly excited by about the acquisition and what it will mean to the Public View clients as webring the combined capability of the two businesses together to continue to deliver exceptional services and outcomes to our clients.”
