Norwich City Council has signed a five year deal with Advanced to kick-start the digital transformation of its financial and HR operations.
The Crown Commercial Service agreement will see the council implement an on-premise solution to automate and integrate its core digital processes, which will improve working practices for its staff and deliver more efficient services for its 137,000 residents. The integrated Advanced solution will replace ageing and disparate systems unable to keep up with the council’s maturing digital strategy.
Anton Bull, director of business services at Norwich City Council, said: “Replacing our finance and HR systems is a vital part of our journey to a ‘digital by default’ model. The solution offered by Advanced will increase efficiency and improve our services; consolidating the operations at the heart of our council, giving us better access to real-time information and improving connections across the organisation.”
