Organisation: Wandsworth Council
Wandsworth Council is a unitary council in the north of London dealing with 307,000 people in 130,000 households. Wandsworth provides a range of public services that includes Social Care, Housing and Education.
THE EBASE CONNECTION
In common with all UK local authorities, Wandsworth has a compelling need to drive down the cost of service delivery, and has identified that using modern software to automate manual processes allows them to improve efficiency while maintaining and improving quality of service.
James Petersen, Corporate Web Manager for Wandsworth: “We needed a platform that would help us deliver our service transformation program.
Our first priority had to be the citizen services with the highest transactions, but we recognised that we needed something that could handle all the back office integration and workflow as well.”
HOW’S THAT WORKING OUT?
Wandsworth began a program of service transformation and engaged with Ebase Professional Services to help them deliver an aggressive program of change.
Key projects to date have included the Moving Out/Moving In process, School Admissions, Street Fault Reporting and a Parking Portal. Wandsworth are already realising significant savings and return on investment.
James Petersen: “We have been very happy to work with Ebase. Their RAD approach lets us evolve the details during the development and helps us deliver accurate and cost-effective solutions.”
