Agilisys joins Scottish Borders’ digital transformation programme

IT and outsourcing giant CGI has signed up Agilisys to deliver core elements of its £92m digital-services contract with Scottish Borders Council.

PublicTechnology reported last month that the authority had entered into a 13-year agreement with CGI that would provide it with state-of-the-art technology and see the establishment of a new service-delivery centre creating 200 jobs.

Now CGI has announced that it has contracted digital-services specialist Agilisys to deliver a new Enterprise Resource Planning solution to replace the council’s current finance and HR systems as part of its deal. 

It said Scottish Borders would also implement the Agilisys Digital platform to provide residents with round-the-clock self-service access to online services.

Louise Ah Wong, transformation director at Agilisys, said the Scottish Borders appointment would build on the expertise and capabilities the business had 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,” she said.

Scottish Borders appointed CGI to transform its digital services off the back of a similar deal agreed with City of Edinburgh Council last year.

The authority was named as a partner by Edinburgh throughout the procurement of its £186m ICT contract, which under Scotland’s new public-sector-partner procurement process allowed Scottish Borders to contract directly with the winning bidder.

Agilisys is also a partner for the Edinburgh deal.
