Our Journey

An idea born out of necessity

An idea born out of necessity

We had the idea of forming another company to complement Total Fire in the main core of the work we do; conducting high volume, quality, fire risk assessments for virtually every building category. Back then the fire risk assessment process we used was basic and very time consuming.

Bringing the idea to life

We created our own bespoke fire risk management software: Aurora Data Ltd. Aurora means “Northern Light” and describes a light phenomenon; we thought this would be a fitting name for our new company based in the NW of England.

Mapping, testing & refining the software

Mapping, testing & refining the software

Over the next 18 months we worked with a software developer to capture the end to end process of what we term “the fire risk management cycle.” Once the first build was complete we rigorously tested it across multiple platforms including mobile and desktop.

Aurora is launched

Aurora was launched in February 2017 as part of the Total Fire Group. We believe we have a tried and tested system that we couldn’t do business without; we could never go back to Word templates and emails! Over the past 3 years we have added many new features to provide greater functionality and efficiency.
