Bolton Council has entered a seven-year partnership with digital solutions provider Agilisys.

The local authority said the contract marks a significant step in the delivery of its Digital Programme and involves the provision of a ‘cloud native’ IT service.

This is expected to make it easier to transform council services, support information sharing and collaboration, improve residents’ access to services.

Leader of Bolton Council Cllr Martyn Cox said: “As a council, one of our top priorities is making sure the Bolton taxpayer is getting value for money by securing the right contracts from the right supplier.

“I am confident this new ICT partnership represents a good deal for Bolton, allowing the council to run more efficient, more accessible and fully modern services.” 

Improving the back office

Cllar Nadim Muslim, executive cabinet member with the digital portfolio, said the contract will support improvements in the council’s back office functions and make it possible to offer accessible public facing services.

The council’s Digital Bolton plan involves efforts such as increasing the use of assistive technology, moving application forms online, simplifying the ways people can get in touch online, and working with infrastructure providers to deliver better access to fast internet connections.
