Shropshire Council enables mobile working with Idox Group
Shropshire Council is one of the largest authorities in England covering an area of 1,235 square miles, is home to 307,000 residents and oversees over 3,000 planning applications a year.
Shropshire is one of England’s most rural authorities with five area offices located in the Market Towns across the authority, have always recognised the necessity to provide flexible remote and home working for their officers.
Faced with the continued challenge of increasing efficiency around some of the authorities’ key service areas, Shropshire commenced a trial of running the existing Idox Uniform Planning and Document Management Solutions on iPads using thin client technology. The trial fitted well with Shropshire’s Business Transformation Project which commenced in 2010 and which is aimed at improving efficiency via the use of relevant and appropriate technology.
