About Us

Flowz is a joint venture company formed by Apira and Kaleidoscope Consultants

Flowz is a joint venture company owned by Apira and Kaleidoscope Consultants; both are companies that specialise in the health and social care sectors, Apira in technology and Kaleidoscope in data protection laws.

The two companies have worked since 2009 and collaborated closely on the predecessor to Flowz, IAM (Information Asset Manager) launched in 2013.

IAM was widely adopted by health and social care organisations to support compliance with the NHS Information Governance Toolkit.

In 2015, Apira and Kaleidoscope started considering the implications of the early drafts of the General Data Protection Regulation and planning for a technology refresh to realign IAM/Flowz from ISO 27005 compliance to broaden and encompass GDPR article 30 and wider cross-mapped articles, recitals and guidance.
