Breckland & South Holland Council has selected Tascomi as their new technology provider to enable the authority to digitally transform its service provision for Public Protection, Environmental Health, Food, Licensing, Health & Safety, and Private Sector Housing (including HMO).
Following a competitive procurement exercise, Breckland & South Holland Council has awarded a contract to Tascomi Ltd for the provision of a cloud-based Public Protection and Licensing software solution and fully integrated Online Services Portal.
Phil Adams, Executive People and Public Protection Manager at Breckland & South Holland, commented “Having completed an extensive procurement process, Tascomi Public Protection was the obvious choice for Breckland & South Holland. The new Tascomi system will help the Council provide streamlined services across our Public Protection and Licensing teams whilst enabling significant cost savings and other efficiencies. Also, as a cloud based offering, the solution is mobile by default enabling our staff with full access to the system regardless of their location which is very attractive to us. Its adaptability and modern approach, will enable greater access for both our customers and staff, delivering the right service at the right time. We are excited to start working with Tascomi to transform our services and provide an improved experience to our customers.”
Tascomi Public Protection is fully hosted on an ISO 27001 accredited and Cyber Essentials certified private cloud facility and is mobile by default, enabling agile working for officers in the field using any mobile device with a web browser.
The inclusion of a fully integrated online services portal will empower residents and businesses to submit, pay for and track applications for the full range of licenses that the Council is responsible for administering.
Breckland & South Holland Council is the latest of a number of authorities to opt for Tascomi Public Protection, with Liverpool City Council, Arun District Council, Cheshire West and Chester Council and Royal Borough of Greenwich also choosing to invest in the solution in recent months.
