17 November 2023 – North Herts Council (NHC) is set to revolutionise its operations and enhance service delivery with the adoption of TechnologyOne's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) suite.
The comprehensive solution encompasses financials, supply chain management, Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), and Corporate Performance Management (CPM), establishing North Herts Council as a pioneer in digital innovation within the realm of local government.
As local government in the UK battles rising inflationary pressures, North Herts recognised the need for a modern and integrated ERP solution to replace its legacy applications. The council conducted a thorough evaluation and selected TechnologyOne for its proven track record in delivering transformative solutions to the public sector. The integrated SaaS solution will help the council gain efficiency, increase transparency, and provide exceptional services to its constituents.
The inclusion of financials, supply chain, EAM, and CPM modules in the ERP suite ensures that NHC has a unified platform to manage its financial processes, streamline supply chain operations, optimise asset management, and enhance corporate performance reporting. This holistic approach enables North Herts Council to break down silos, improve decision-making, and drive operational excellence.
North Herts Council’s Service Director – Resources, Ian Couper, said: “We are entering a new era of efficiency and transparency in our operations with the adoption of TechnologyOne's SaaS ERP suite. This comprehensive solution aligns with our vision for a modern and integrated approach to managing our resources and services and will help us deliver an exemplary experience for our communities.”
TechnologyOne Executive Vice President, Leo Hanna, said: "Thirteen years of budget pressures, more cuts expected, and rising resident demand for services amid the cost-of-living crisis are putting significant pressure on councils. The SaaS ERP model is tailored to meet the unique needs of local government bodies, providing them with the tools to enhance efficiency, transparency, and overall service delivery while lowering their costs.
“North Herts decision to implement our full ERP suite showcases their commitment to embracing innovation for the benefit of their community and we are thrilled to partner with them on their journey toward digital excellence.”
