Shared Service Gazetteer Management From Aligned Assets Is Benefitting Two Oxfordshire Councils

Woking, Surrey 15th April 2013 – South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils are using the Symphony iManage gazetteer management system from Aligned Assets to drive forward efficiency savings via its new shared service module.

By enabling easy access to multiple local authority gazetteers through the one user interface, one team can manage more than one authority's gazetteer data without the need for multiple applications.

The two councils have been able to merge their previously disparate gazetteer teams, simply selecting which gazetteer to manage via a drop-down menu within the software.  In doing so they are able to save time, increase efficiency and dramatically cut both capital and revenue costs due to shared licensing, reduced infrastructure requirements and lower consultancy fees.

In addition to Symphony iManage, the councils are also using Aligned Assets’ Street Naming and Numbering module, enabling them to quickly and simply manage the complete lifecycle of naming a street or numbering a property.  Symphony SNN comes complete with a shared service option to allow any street naming and numbering officer to move seamlessly between cases, irrespective of which authority they come from, and easily customise the software to allow the user to follow almost any working methodology they so choose.

“We looked at a number of different gazetteer suppliers, but the combination of price and quality made Aligned Assets the obvious choice,” explained Sally-Anne Worsley, Data Monitoring Manager for South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils.

“Aligned Assets have proved to be more than just a software supplier and have consistently demonstrated their willingness to work as partners to our two councils.  The software is under constant development and importantly, this development is overwhelmingly driven by customer needs and requirements.”

The Aligned Assets pricing structure for shared services has been designed to better represent the economies of scale that shared services are intended to achieve.  The pricing is no longer a flat fee per authority, but instead reflects the number of authorities involved.
