Renfrewshire Council has signed up to roll out a new leading-edge business technology that will improve the efficiency of the council, supporting its focus on the delivery of local public services.
The new Enterprise Resource Planning system is a web-based platform that provides a single route into information that many council employees use day-to-day to deliver local public services, such as financial information and purchasing and personnel systems.
The system, which is being implemented and supported by leading digital technology specialist Agilisys, is designed to streamline the council’s business processes and remove duplication and paperwork.
This will make better use of the council’s resources and, by providing council managers with real-time, up to date information, help them to plan and manage services better.
Renfrewshire Council chief executive, Sandra Black, says that the new system is an important step in the council’s ongoing plans to become a more modern, efficient organisation:
‘This is an important part of our plans to continually review and improve the way we work and deliver efficient services for our residents, communities and businesses.
‘The new system will make it simpler and quicker to get things done which will benefit our customers and ensure that we make best use of our budget
Andrew Mindenhall co-founder and Director at Agilisys added: “We are delighted to be working with Renfrewshire council, as well as the growing number of other local authorities we are working with across Scotland, to help transform public services using our expertise in innovative technology and digital transformation.”
