Auckland Council has appointed a HP-led consortia to standardise its desktop systems.

After a competitive tender process, the council has engaged HP, Dimension Data and Microsoft, as part of a wider programme of work to continue to unify its core systems and business processes.

The council says the wider programme of work will make them more efficient, saving ratepayers $50.1 million over the next ten years.

While holding some upfront costs, the council says the desktop project will contribute $22.3 million to the next $50.1 million of savings.

“The desktop is a vital business tool for all in council and is used right across the organisation to enable basic business processes,” says Ian Maxwell, Auckland Council acting chief operating officer.

“Librarians use it to access their book catalogues, resource consents staff use the desktop to track applications and all those who answer Aucklanders questions at service centres rely on it.

“The new platform we will implement will be cheaper to operate, saving ratepayers’ money, while also being simpler and faster for our staff to use – giving Aucklanders the high-quality level of service they deserve from a modern council.”
