Industry: Public Sector
The London Borough of Lambeth, which serves a young demographic population of approximately 320,000, has recently embarked on a significant transformation programme across all its service areas to ensure that the 'Lambeth Vision of the Future' maximises the skills of an agile, flexible and digitally enabled workforce.
As part of this transformation programme, Lambeth Council has now (April 2018) successfully gone live with Oracle Cloud Application Services covering Financials,Project Financials, Procurement, Planning and Budgeting, HR, Talent Management, Talent Acquisition and Payroll. London Borough of Lambeth is the first public sector organisation in UK & Ireland to embark on a complete, end to end Oracle Cloud suite implementation including Oracle Cloud Payroll to deliver a new modern enterprise resource planning (ERP) system designed to transform the way that Lambeth delivers back-office services across finance, procurement, human resources (HR), and payroll-related functions.
The London Borough of Lambeth was initially a member of ‘One Oracle’, a shared system with five other London Authorities operating on Oracle EBS R12 which was a very costly, resource intensive, heavily customised solution with minimal self-service. London Borough of Lambeth decided to migrate to Oracle Cloud stating that Oracle Cloud solution is a robust solution and a step change in terms of usability and user experience, at the same time reducing costs and internal resource requirements.
The London Borough of Lambeth selected Evosys as their preferred implementation partner. The project, which began in May 2017 last year has successfully gone live on 3rd April 2018.
One of the most important components in achieving this success was "collaboration". The success of this project has been down to the dedication and commitment of Evosys and London Borough of Lambeth Teams. Both Lambeth and Evosys Teams worked together as one project team, building trust and working as a partnership, each bringing their expertise and knowledge to the project.
