We are delighted to invite local authorities to a digital transformation roundtable on July 25th in the boardroom of The Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.
Hosted by Pythagoras, attendees will hear transformation stories from Nadira Hussain (Head of ICT at The London Borough of Enfield) and Ben Goward (CIO at Westminster City Council) as well as seeing the latest updates to Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Evolve LRG, Pythagoras's product for Local Government, designed to accelerate cost reduction and digital service delivery with Microsoft Dynamics 365.
Upon the conclusion of the roudtable attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the remainder of the roses match between Lancashire and Yorkshire in the County Championship from the exclusive boardroom balcony.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 in local government
The extensibility of Microsoft Dynamics 365 is making it the clear technology choice, managing hundreds of processes across authorities; from FOI requests, to blue badge applications and the scheduling of staff to resolve council issues such as fly tipping and potholes.
By integrating with other business critical systems, Microsoft Dynamics 365 provides an enhanced level of insight which can be used to produce more accurate reporting and enable councils to make more informed decisions based on real time data.
Evolve LRG: built by Pythagoras for local government
The Evolve LRG Foundation Layer converts Microsoft Dynamics 365 into a platform optimised with features and processes specifically for local authorities. This includes a Journey Designer that enables you to build and continually improve processes within Microsoft Dynamics 365, without the requirement for technical consultancy.
