Agilisys continues its Edinburgh partnership with CGI at Scottish Borders
Public sector specialist will deliver new ERP solution to replace Scottish council's current Finance and HR systems
CGI and Agilisys teamed up at the City of Edinburgh Council after CGI landed the city's seven-year £186m transformational outsourced ICT services contract last summer. Now they're going to do the same thing at Scottish Borders Council.
Agilisys was named as a partner for the Edinburgh contract whose procurement allows other Scottish local authorities and health agencies to procure similar services.
Scottish Borders Council was the first local authority to take this procurement route, and now Agilisys has signed a deal with CGI to deliver services as part of CGI's £92m contract with Scottish Borders to support its digital transformation programme. CGI's partnership with the council is set to create 200 new jobs and inject over £100m into the local economy.
As part of its role in the programme, Agilisys will deliver a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution, which will replace the council's current Finance and HR systems. It will also implement the Agilisys Digital platform, which offers citizens online self-service access to council services.
Louise Ah Wong, transformation director at Agilisys said: "We are delighted to be partnered with CGI to deliver this exciting and ambitious transformation programme for Scottish Borders Council, which builds on the expertise and capabilities we have already established in Scotland.
"Working closely with CGI and Scottish Borders we will enable simpler and more accessible digital services for local citizens, whilst also transforming vital back office functions, to enhance mobile working practices."
Maggie Morrison, director Public Sector, Scotland at CGI said: "CGI is delighted to be working in partnership with Scottish Borders Council and we look forward to the journey ahead which will transform the delivery of public services for citizens in the region."
