Lincolnshire County Council Awards Planning, Highways and Legal Agreements Case Management Contract to DEF
Following on from a competitive tender process involving a number of providers we are delighted to announce that DEF Software has been awarded the contract to provide Lincolnshire County Council with case management software for Mineral and Waste Planning, Highways Development Control, Road Adoption and Legal Agreements.
At a high level, the contract award sees DEF deliver software solutions across the business areas of Planning, Legal Agreements (S106), Enforcement, Site Monitoring and Highways Development Control and Highways Road Adoption. The software will also provide Lincolnshire with a web based public facing portal for searching, viewing and consulting on Planning applications. Lincolnshire have also contracted DEF to host the solution on their behalf.
Graeme Cooke, Commercial Director at DEF, explains:
"DEF have been strong in the County market space in recent times having secured four Planning contract wins in 2016. As a targeted County solution the software was an excellent fit for Lincolnshire County Council. Unlike other providers, DEF have specific County products which are tightly aligned to the customer's requirements. We were able to offer a fully hosted software solution that not only offered value, but also a low level of ICT input, allowing the business to make efficiency gains without compromising on quality of service."
The contract was formally awarded in September 2016.
