Denbighshire County Council is set to digitally transform the delivery of it’s Public Protection and Building Control services, having recently taken advantage of Tascomi’s single supplier Framework Agreement awarded by the Welsh Purchasing Consortium
The Council sought to replace their existing software systems with modern, integrated and comprehensive management tools, which would enable significantly improved levels of productivity and operational efficiency within both their Building Control and Public Protection departments.
Gareth Roberts, Built Environment Manager at Denbighshire commented on the upcoming implementation of Tascomi Building Control, an entirely web-based software system which enables Local Authorities to track and manage all aspects of Building Control and Land Charges; “Tascomi Building Control is going to be a significant step forward for us, enabling us to compete much more effectively in the market. The Building Control team also need to become more agile and to communicate digitally with our customers, in order to maintain the high levels of service we provide.
As it is built entirely using open source technology, and as they have already demonstrated, Tascomi take unfettered advantage of new technologies as they come along. I was particularly impressed with the support Tascomi provides. There are no third parties involved in managing our data – it is all contained within Tascomi’s Private Cloud, and as they are ISO 27001 accredited, I know we are in safe hands. The last thing we want is for our data to be held within a third party Cloud, with whom we don’t have a direct relationship.”
Emlyn Jones, Head of Public Protection at Denbighshire remarked on the Mobile Working aspects of Tascomi Public Protection, a comprehensive solution which meets the changing needs of Trading Standards, Environmental Health, Licensing, Private Sector Housing and Housing Grants departments; “As entirely self-contained, web-based solutions, both Tascomi Building Control and Tascomi Public Protection will enable Denbighshire to access the systems remotely. Ensuring that the same functionality is available to all users independent of their location, allowing the Council to fully benefit from the efficiencies available from Mobile Working.”
