Nottinghamshire consortium procure performance software

Wednesday July 20th, 2011

A consortium of Nottinghamshire public sector partner agencies are now using a new covalent software in order to improve organisational performance.

The organisations, known as TotalNotts, have jointly procured Covalent Corporate Performance Management (Covalent CPM), a system which actively manages goal-critical Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and avoids data overload and allows managers to take timely corrective action where necessary.

The new system was produced by Covalent Software and will be used collaboratively across Nottinghamshire. TotalNotts now provides a single platform across the county’s eight local authorities.

Councillor Andy Stewart, Cabinet Member for Personnel and Performance, Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “The simplicity of Covalent’s functionality and its ability to quickly provide management with shared performance information enables TotalNotts to be more responsive and proactive. Having a unified system across the county provides us with a pool of local shared experiences and knowledge, which is key to driving efficiency gains. By working together and sharing experiences all the partners will benefit as Covalent will enable less duplication of effort when solving similar issues.”

Funding for the project was secured from the Regional Improvement Efficiency Partnership (RIEP), which offered councils and their partners funding for joint projects looking to deliver better services to become more efficient and innovative.

TotalNotts comprises of Bassetlaw District Council, Broxtowe Borough Council, Gedling Borough Council, Newark & Sherwood District Council, Rushcliffe Borough Council, Ashfield District Council, Mansfield District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
