We understand what it means to be public sector, including the business functions, application stack, budgets, complexity, and scrutiny. Our dedicated teams have unparalleled experience in supporting local government teams and applications from the inside, including those from people services (education, social care), place services (highways), customer services, and Corporate Services (Enterprise Resource Planning – ERP).

Our knowledge of these systems, business functions and processes ensure we can work with your internal teams and departments to seamlessly support your front-line services and internal teams.

We share the values, as well as the challenges that local authorities have. Our understanding of your goals and objectives is what helps us to add value to your organisation and makes working with us as easy as possible.

We understand that decision making in the public sector can be slow, alongside the board requirements and public scrutiny. So, we work with you to define your requirements, ensure that your decisions are data-driven, and support your teams in remaining flexible on the outcomes of any project.

Our aim is to support the UK public sector in regaining control of its IT operations by redefining the outsourcing model.
