About Neil Harrison
For the past 10 years my passion has been to build a team to develop and utilise a CAFM system that delivers real benefits in a fast, efficient, cost effective and measurable way. Ostara was born out of my own search for a CAFM system and the continual frustration at what was available in the marketplace at the time.
Having been MD, for over 11 years, at the FM company Maintenance Management Ltd I truly believe that the Ostara team understand the drivers, demands and stresses faced by FM, Maintenance and Compliance Managers.
About Steve sartain
For over 20 years I have been successfully using Microsoft © – based technologies to help leading, global industry players in FM, financial services, consultancy, telecom industries and central government accomplish specific business objectives.
Eight years ago I was given the opportunity to join Ostara and tasked to build a team of people that could meet the challenge of developing the best CAFM system possible! With Ostara I believe we have developed a scalable product that will deliver beyond the expectations of even the most demanding clients.
About Jayne Harrison
Having worked in the FM industry for the past 12 years my role is more than just providing financial guidance for Ostara Systems. My aim is not only to carry out an accountancy role for Ostara but also to bring together my financial expertise with my FM experience for the benefit of Ostara’s clients.
I contribute to company strategy across all areas of the business working with a very professional and dedicated team of individuals.
Financial controls which lead to cost savings are an important part of the Ostara system and I have been able to help ensure that the solution continues to deliver these benefits.
About Darren Bayley
My role at Ostara covers a variety of areas. As well as being responsible for overseeing the implementation of services for Clients, I work alongside our clients ensuring not only open and timely communication at all stages, but also that the development of the system meets or exceeds their requirements and expectations.
My technical expertise gained both client side and as a service provider, allows me to highlight any future system development requirements that will be a pre-requisite or simply a benefit for our clients.

Edward Little, Property Manager - Hawthorn Leisure
Our work with the Ostara team is aimed to reduce our FM costs whilst improving efficiency across the reactive and planned maintenance fields. Hawthorn is a young company, becoming fully operational in June 2014, since then the team at Ostara have made it their mission to understand our business and help set up the Ostara system to best suit our needs. What I appreciate most about working with the Ostara team is their ability to cut through the technical jargon, understand our needs and approach every challenge with such positivity. Their time and patience is the bedrock of our partnership.
