Forces unite in closer working

Forces unite in closer working

Crown Duty Management Systems has been chosen as an integral part of an IT solution which will allow three police organisations to join forces for greater collaborative working.

The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for Surrey, Sussex and Thames Valley Police, will be based on a Microsoft Dynamics platform which will be delivered by KPMG Crimsonwing.

The software solution will be rolled out to more than 18,000 employees – assisting greater collaboration and improved flexibility via mobile working using ‘the cloud’.

The solution comprises the following elements; finance, fleet, procurement, HR, learning and development & payroll. Crown will be providing the duty management & rostering functionality.

Said Mike Hawkesford, Managing Director of Crown:

“Through shared services platforms, police forces are better able to work together to achieve greater efficiencies while better serving their communities.”

The contract was awarded following a competitive tender process. Go live is expected to be by the end of 2017.
