Citizens & other Stakeholders are demanding Digital interaction with the Public Sector. A tech savvy population want to use their mobiles, tablets & PC’s at a time & location to suit to book services & ask for information. Fact - Digital Service provision is more cost effective. Fact – Digital demand will grow consistently. With a seemingly watertight business case for transforming to digital engagement models.
Why is the Public Sector so far behind the digital curve?
For most Public Sector bodies keeping the lights on in ICT to support a financially challenged delivery model has been the order of the day. Now however, the need for transformational change is creating the perfect storm. What’s needed is a storm breaker - Cloud is that.
Cloud Solutions offer secure, robust, scalable, cost effective models, reducing resource overhead and costly ongoing maintenance associated with bulky, on-premise systems and introducing user-friendly, fully mobile alternatives.
Arcus Global can help you replace dated IT solutions and Services with new versions for today’s advanced public sector user communities and citizens. Arcus’ portfolio of line of business Applications are built using the latest Cloud technologies. We help you make it happen. Saving time, money and effort through using highly secure cloud-based solutions, working alongside you to evolve your service delivery; making your Council / Department highly effective.
For example Richard Godfrey, Assistant Director at Peterborough City Council, said “We are rationalising many of our services and migrating our IT to a new cloud based environment, which will enable greater efficiency and improved services to our users.” Arcus established a full Enterprise Architecture, Roadmap, Data and Information Governance strategy for Peterborough CC. This created a clear plan that the council, and its other ICT partners have followed.
Additionally Alan Evans, Head of ICT at Aylesbury Vale District Council said “We have a productive, trusting and collaborative relationship stretching over 5 years. Arcus Global is the only AWS UK partner with deep knowledge of Local Government systems and experience in the sector. Coupled with Arcus Global’s commitment to AVDC savings and an offer of a low, fixed cost project, the choice was obvious.”
So why change? Digital offers better service and simplified procedures: it makes lives easier. Taking advantage of future technology, today, has never been easier. It’s all about service – our service to you, and your service to the public. And that’s really the crux of it.
Changing how you access your data and interact with staff and citizens.
Legacy systems are generally fit for purpose but most of them still propagate silo-based infrastructure and have a support and management overhead that works directly against a true low-cost service delivery model.
Arcus Global has a genuinely NEW way of delivering real change and innovation within all of your line-of-business services.
Legacy infrastructure perpetuates a high cost deployment model
Modern technology enables processes and data to be managed across the enterprise and lends itself to flexible, scalable cloud based deployment.
Moving to ‘the Cloud’ delivers some savings but simply moving a complex, expensive environment from one location to another does not really change the cost of service delivery. The cost of upkeep on these complex environments is made worse by having to pay for and support multiple vendor-controlled connectors or ‘integration harnesses’ and the provision of efficiency tools such as Mobile access or dashboards for workload management are often seen as ‘luxury’ items and sold as chargeable extras.
That’s not how modern technology needs to work – there is a better way.
Take the Arcus challenge, and prove us against your current costs, data management and ease of use for:
- Regulatory Services
- Planning and Building Control
- Land Charges
- Contract and Asset Management
- Social Care
- Waste Management..
Arcus platform technology is mobile by default and accessible from any device with a modern browser
Arcus platform technology includes user dashboards as standard:
Arcus platform technology sees data as the basis for all transactions and prevents duplication of effort and information:
Arcus platform technology natively links into other applications such as e-mail and social media:
Any organisation needs experienced partners for transition as not only does your data need to be securely and effectively transferred, but the systems will also need to be customised to fit your service requirements.
We design solutions to fit in with your needs, and create a basis for extending further to start the journey towards a true digitally-enabled organisation.
If you just want to replace an existing ‘closed’ system with another one then you’re not really changing anything, just polishing the surface of an engine that isn’t designed for the modern age.
If you are really looking to move to ways of working that are enabled by technology, not hindered by it, then you need to talk to us and we will listen.
