Innervate is forged from a rich mix of heritage and vision – a business with deep experience that’s looking to the future.

Founded in 1983 under the name Ascent, we led the way with a proprietary CRM system developed, implemented and supported long before some of the larger early CRM systems hit the market in the 90’s.  We successfully grew the business and in 2012 gained the interest of the American company Ciber Inc. who were looking for a UK operation that could strengthen their global credentials

Operating under the Ciber UK brand we grew and continued to develop a trusted reputation both locally and within Europe.

In 2017, with changes afoot in the global organisation, the time was right to forge a new direction and create Innervate, the new name for Ciber UK. Retaining the same team, as an independent business, we developed a fresh appetite for bringing excellent solutions and services to our valued customers.

Following a management buy-out in June 2018, we are now being led by the original owners of Ascent, with many of the original team still delighting our customers.

Our success continues through 2018. With around 100 employees, having successfully deployed more than 350 Microsoft Dynamics projects, we have offshore development centres of excellence in both Vietnam and India and have expanded our client base into the Middle East.

Innervate truly are a unique company having operated for over 30 years in the digital transformation marketplace, combined with the mindset and attitude of start-up.


“In establishing Innervate, we created something new, but we’re also continuing a tradition of faithful service to our customers. The enthusiasm of our team is really infectious – we’re on a mission to do great things and make a real difference to the businesses we serve.”
