Christchurch & East Dorset Councils Award Contract to DEF
Following on from a competitive tender process involving a number of providers, we’re delighted to announce that DEF Software has been awarded the shared services software contract by Christchurch Borough Council and East Dorset District Council. The process was delivered through the Crown Commercial Services Framework RM1059, with the client making a direct award.
At a high level, the contract award sees DEF deliver software solutions in the areas of Planning, Building Control, Legal Agreements, eGov, Enforcement & Appeals, TPO's, CIL & Policy Monitoring.
David Frame, CEO at DEF, explains:
"The Councils have an extremely focussed shared services program and they are committed to achieving the perfect of blend of quality and value. We're not a large corporate so I always feel value and flexibility will play a part in our offering, but it is within our quality that we really shone. We were able to understand very quickly what the partnership were looking for in terms of a successful delivery alongside their longer term ambitions. The team there know what they want, and as a partner, that focus and commitment they show as a client makes this a great win for DEF. We can't wait to get started helping them fulfil their ambitions."
The contract was formally awarded in March 2015.
