Helping the change community for 25 years

Ninth Wave is a UK based software and consulting company, established in 1995 and specialising in providing programme, project and IT management software and services

At Ninth Wave we work closely with all our customers to establish which of our SmartCore solutions will best fit their needs and requirements.  Our aim is always to provide you with rapidly configured management software which has full functionality, scalability and portability.  We pride ourselves on catering for your individual needs whether they concern project management software, programme management tools or IT management solutions.

Ninth Wave was founded in 1995 by three ex-KPMG management consultants – Richard Meakin, Andrew Snowdon and Mark Slater.  We started out as a management consultancy specialising in IT and helping our customers to undertake and deliver large IT projects and programmes.  In 2001 we launched PAT (Project Assistant Toolkit) our first software product – which has since been re-branded as SmartCore.  Designed from the ground up as an enterprise solution, the success of SmartCore has consolidated and enhanced our position as one of the leading ‘home grown’ suppliers of project and programme management software in the UK.  Since March 2021 Ninth Wave has been an employee-owned business.


We have worked with a number of companies from banks and telecoms providers to legal firms and insurance brokers, implementing their project and portfolio management solutions on time and within budget.

Ninth Wave's SmartCore solution is used for a wide range of business applications including;


  • Project Management

  • Programme Management

  • Portfolio Management

  • Risk Management

  • Resource Management

  • Document Management


SmartCore is entirely configurable through the web browser to meet a variety of organisational and individual information needs.  SmartCore can be configured rapidly, provides a shared environment for thousands of users over the internet, integrates with a wide range of other business software applications and provides powerful and flexible workflow, dashboards and reporting.

SmartCore provides a tried and tested solution that can be rapidly configured to meet current and future requirements and is delivered and supported by a skilled and experienced team.  SmartCore may be installed in-house or hosted from Ninth Wave's own servers.

We have extensive knowledge and understanding of project management tools, programme management applications and resource management software which we have fully utilised in our design of SmartCore to enable our customers to pick a business software solution that truly suits their needs.
