Hart District Council has selected Arcus Global to provide a cloud platform for its planning and regulatory services.
They have agreed on a five-year contract following a procurement through G-Cloud 10. It will see the council overhaul its existing legacy application in favour of a scalable end to end cloud platform.
“We are currently undergoing a review of our legacy systems, and decided we needed a cloud based platform that could help with our wider business transformation and be the first stepping stone in our new digital strategy,” said Matthew Saunders, business and facilities manager at Hart.
He added that the Arcus Global platform has the flexibility to meet the council’s needs. It will include open APIs so it can integrate with all systems across the council, and will be accessible to staff working remotely.
Saunders added: “We are keen to adopt a paperless and mobile working culture so this new platform will encourage this. Our staff will access the system online so discourages old paper based ways and they will make live updates in the field, instead of coming back to the office so this will make great efficiency savings.”
