Automated Intelligence (AI) announce a new contract with Christchurch and East Dorset Councils, who operate through a shared management partnership.  The councils will benefit from enhanced information governance and collaboration using proven solutions from Automated Intelligence.

The councils will be migrating and consolidating to a single information platform using Microsoft SharePoint and software and services from AI which will enable them to reduce current data holdings to save costs and increase efficiencies.  AI’s capability will allow the authorities to manage their data better, complying with industry standards and providing more agile collaboration across the organisations.

Mark Godfrey, CEO of Automated Intelligence comments on the success “We are delighted to be able to announce another win in local regional government.  Many authorities are now working together to provide more streamlined services for their citizens.  It is important to ensure that council staff can securely access, manage and use information to provide effective citizen services. Our solution enables authorities to avail of the systems they currently have and add additional capability to meet their information governance and business productivity requirements.  We look forward to working with the councils to enable them to provide a cost-effective information platform that is built around the needs of their users.”
