Agilisys has signed a contract with CGI to deliver services as part of CGI’s contract with Scottish Borders Council, supporting the Council’s digital transformation programme.
The new partnership is set to create 200 new jobs and inject over £100m into the local economy.
This announcement follows CGI’s contract signing with the City of Edinburgh Council in August 2015, where Agilisys was also named as partner. The Edinburgh contract was the result of the City of Edinburgh Council’s Public Sector Partner procurement, which allows other local authorities, the Scottish government and health agencies to procure similar services – and Scottish Borders Council is the first local authority to take this procurement route.
As part of their 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. They will also implement the Agilisys Digital platform, which offers citizens self-service access so that they can enjoy a seamless online experience, available to them 24/7.
CGI is a global IT and business services company with over 65,000 employees operating across 40 countries. Agilisys is an employee-owned, UK based company who has been working with local and central government for over a decade, delivering transformative IT and digital customer platforms that provide real benefits for citizens.
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.”
