Automated Intelligence enables Office 365 to become the corporate content management platform for The City of Edinburgh Council

Automated Intelligence (AI) have been selected as a key SME to deliver a more agile and governed way of working for The City of Edinburgh Council through a new Cloud-based information strategy.

Applications from Automated Intelligence will be used by the Council to promote business productivity whilst enhancing the information governance and records management capability of the solution.

We want to deliver an innovative service allowing us to continue to improve the customer service we provide.  Engaging with SME’s is essential for innovation so we are delighted to be working with Automated Intelligence to help us deliver the content management project. The niche skills and experience that AI hold in the end-to-end management of information make them the right candidate for the contract.”

The project will empower the Council’s users to work with, and adopt, the new platform quickly and easily with the enhanced functionality from Automated Intelligence solutions.
