News : Kent Signs Digital Services Contract with Agilisys
Kent County, UK, Oct 22, 2015 -- Kent County Council has signed a six-year contract with Agilisys to operate its digital services and contact centre.
As part of the contract, Kent will use Agilisys’ Digital and Engage platforms to modernise its digital channels and make it easier for people to interact with the council.
The council’s leader, Paul Carter, said it wants to offer an "enhanced experience for the people of Kent when they need to access Kent County Council's services and contact point".
"As a result we will also be able to identify even greater savings through improved processes, giving the taxpayers better value for money," he said.
The deal will also see 170 staff members from the council transferred to Agilisys, which will continue to operate services from within the county.
"Plans are already underway to ensure staff will be supported throughout the transition and services will be unaffected," said Carter.
