Over the last 20 years, Abacus has established long and successful partnerships with our public sector clients and we have always striven to combine technical innovation and creativity with software and digital solutions that are practical and work.
We have witnessed the boom and bust cycles of the last two governments and worked tirelessly with our clients to meet their changing needs, and we will continue to do so in light of the austerity measures and public spending cuts being imposed by the new coalition government.
We now see two clear themes emerging – channel shifting and a drive for shared services – so we have produced a number of resources which you can access below, to help you understand the issues and the challenges local governments are now faced with. There are two white papers outlining the key issues using case studies at Lincolnshire County Council to demonstrate practical solutions to meet these objectives.
The cost cutting calculator should provide local government FDs with a quick application to calculate clear savings to be made by investing sensibly in digital services and consolidating your output.
