Consilium confirm £300,000 district council contract

Leading IT firm, Consilium Technologies has won a contract worth over £300,000 with an English district council for the delivery of a number of its application systems.

Eden District Council in Cumbria will receive a combination of Consilium applications including TASK Financials, asset management, cash receipting, personnel solution and a web-based travel system.

Clive Howey, Financial Services Manager with Eden said: “A modernised financial system will allow the Council to provide an improved service to local people. We believe that the solution proposed by Consilium and its partners will enable us to do so.”

Upon completion of the implementation phase, the total solution will allow 32 concurrent users within the finance and HR department to fully manage all aspects of the council’s finances and HR administration.

Ronnie Geddis, Sales & Marketing Director at Consilium added: “Our solutions are packaged and designed specifically to meet the needs of Districts. This contract serves to provide us with growing acceptance of Consilium’s applications in the District Council market.”

Based in Belfast, Consilium Technologies employs 75 people and was originally founded as TASK Software in 1985.
