Lincolnshire County and District Councils are set to save £2.5 million per year through the deployment of a new hosted communication platform, it has been reported.

The council is replacing many of its expiring IT contracts with online solutions delivered via a broadband connection by managed hosting provider Kcom.

Councillor Kelly Smith, Executive Member for Finance and HR, said the new arrangement would see a large-scale computer network link its various offices together.

"Under this new arrangement we’ll not only see improvements to these services, but we’ve also reduced the associated costs by more than 50 per cent," she stated.

Afshin Attari, Kcom’s Director of Public Sector, said the service provider was "very pleased" to have been given the opportunity to work with Lincolnshire County Council in delivering cost-effective IT services to their offices, schools and partners.

"This approach to purchasing services through a central partnership organisation, such as emPSN, provides economies of scale for all parties involved and as such is a good investment for the residents of Lincolnshire," he stated.
