Which councils have jumped ship? And who's the competitor?

I work as a contractor in the social care business working with the IT systems each authority uses and the word on the street is that they are starting to lose existing social care customers. Two big Authorities have defected to their main rival in the last year. That rival, contrary to the market share graphs on the servelec investor and analysts presentations, already has by far the lion's share of the market. There is not nearly as much new business to go for as Servelec seem to think. The market shares they show are just plain wrong, not difficult to find out. Just employ a telesales guy to ring round the 200 odd councils in Britain and ask what system they have. Unfortunately the rival company is a privately held company, so not an investment opportunity. Companies in this business tend to have a life cycle like a roller coaster, they win a lot, reach a plateau then they stop winning and then they start losing some existing customers and then they hit the downhill slope as better suppliers come along. Once that happens it is hard to stop. The good staff leave and it is hard to justify putting investment into a declining business and then more existing customers start to look elsewhere. Fortunately for Servelec the health market is much more regulated and bureaucratic and companies can get away with old, expensive products and technologies that wouldn't cut it in any other market, so they may be able to milk that for a while. No idea how they fare in the automation market.

What a volatile share price. Have they won any social care deals this year? I can't see anything positive on the website that isn't pretty old. Health seems to be faring a little better.

mixed half year results. looks like contracts from water companies have only been delayed until they all resolve their 'Open Water' issues. All IMHO. N+1 Singer re-iterated 325p target price yesterday (Sept 11th).

Identified in this weeks Shares magazine as one of three stocks to play the digital healthcare revolution. 'It's been a volatile year for Servelec as it recovered from a challenging UK market for its remote telemetry units, though Glasper (N + I Singer analyst) thinks these problems are behind the company. Servelec CEO Stubbs is confident the company can take advantage of integrated systems which enable care providers to work together. Stubbs is also excited about healthcare becoming mobile, as it will allow people to become involved in their own care programme'

Just come across this share : Not impressed by managements attention to detail. From 06/04/2017 4:31pm UK Regulatory (RNS & others) "The Group's Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 26 April 2016 at 9.30am, at the offices of Investec, 2 Gresham Street, London, EC2V 7QN. " WRONG YEAR in the rns If their attention to detail in their contracts has the same level of attention to detail - heaven help the shareholders. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Layabout 6 Mar '17 - 17:40 - 116 of 120 Has probably put his finger correctly on the pulse - Also p/e If ADVFN correct seems far too high. Long term share price graph not encouraging.

Yes, I'd picked up on this - Servelec are gilding the lily with their investor statements. Is it too much to ask that the FCA get their finger out and 'have a word' with companies which tell porkies to investors?

Also be interesting to see if there are any analysts' briefings tomorrow with the results and if so, if they have sorted out their market share graphs for social care. I don't know if these are the figures they were told and believed when they bought and paid handsomely for Corelogic. The social care market share graphs on their analysts' briefing in October are completely wrong. hxxps://www.servelec-group.com/media/2255/20161007-servelec-overview-presentation.pdf They think they are the biggest social care supplier when they are not by a long way and they think there is a big market opportunity to go for when, in fact, those local authorities have largely already moved to their main competitor. It's just basic market awareness. As a freelance contractor in this business I need to know what council's use what system to bid for work, you'd think they'd know too. All they need to do is hire a telesales person to ring round every local authority and find out what supplier they use. I don't know if they are as bad in the other divisions at knowing their market, but it doesn't look impressive.
