October 01, 2010 -- GGP Systems Offers Public Sector Cost Savings with New Payment Plan In a move to address spending cuts and boost efficiency in the UK public sector, geographic information systems (GIS) and gazetteer management software supplier GGP Systems is introducing a “new way to pay” for all new purchases, allowing its customers to spread the cost of their software over a three or five year period.
GGP Systems hopes the introduction of its “new way to pay”, called FlexiPay, will ease the budget pressures being faced by many organisations while still enabling councils and emergency services organisations to reap the rewards of innovative software designed to improve efficiency in the public sector.
“Our customers are telling us this is what they need,” commented Tim Maxwell, Managing Director of GGP Systems. “The use of geographical information systems and corporate address databases is fundamental in the drive to improve efficiency and reduce costs. FlexiPay makes it easier for organisations to get hold of the latest innovations ensuring they can make savings and improve service levels from the word go.”
FlexiPay is available to all new customers of the company’s award winning gazetteer management solutions and geographic information systems software. It is also available to existing customers purchasing new products. The FlexiPay option combines the software purchase price with the annual maintenance costs for the selected term and spreads them evenly across a three or five year period, with customers being offered the option to pay monthly, quarterly or annually.
One local authority software purchaser commented, “At a time when every department is facing increased demands on decreased budgets it is sometimes difficult to make the initial investment in a new solution – even when you know it’s going to save money in the end. Being able to spread the costs over a longer period of time effectively gives us 0% finance, which means we can balance our spending and stay within budget.”

The South London based company provides easy to use software for the creation and management of corporate property databases, the ability to add and use a spatial element to all location based information and a range of solutions to meet t-Government directives and the drive towards shared services.
