Ending chaos by adopting the Cloud to deliver Digital Government

The largest taxi company has no taxis, the largest hotel network has no hotels these are real examples outside the public sector where digitalisation has transformed the industry and is disrupting operating models of incumbent players.
 
With austerity, taxpayers have been presented with a very unappetising choice between higher taxes or radically curtailed public services, or both. Is there an alternative, a way to use innovation to make public services cheaper without cuts? In short, yes! Governments are adopting the cloud because it delivers the most elusive goal of delivering more, for less.
 
The challenges of today’s modern government leave professionals scrambling to respond to the needs of their colleagues, managers and citizens, whilst meeting the ever-growing workload. Both HR & Finance needs to take seats at the strategic table, but that demands accurate data and the ability to demonstrate how information translates directly into results.
 
Few would argue that we are facing a new world, one that demands new efficient ways of working.  Austerity is forcing organisations to do more with less, fewer people and fewer resources. Finance and HR teams must identify how they can help drive an organisation’s ability to differentiate itself and operate effectively. As government gets on board with cloud solutions like BambooHR and SAP Business ByDesign it will deliver significant savings.

Tired of spreadsheet chaos?

A recent survey found 80% of leaders are reporting ‘dramatically’ higher levels of stress. Downsizing means the megalith solutions implemented in the 1990s will no longer deliver people and finance related processes and arguably even more importantly to do more with less it often means both teams will need to perform at a fraction of the cost.
 
Is the Finance and HR consumed with putting out fires and handling transactions instead of contributing strategically, survey results tell us that “management spends less than 10 percent of their time on strategy and invest as much as two-thirds of their time completing routine tasks.
 
There is an answer!

If the HR and Finance teams are among the eight out of ten government professionals that are feeling the pressure, they need to know there is an answer. A modern cloud-based integrated HR and finance information platform will help them juggle growing responsibilities and avoid the tedium of error-ridden routine transactions, spreadsheets, and information requests.
 
Imagine a scenario where information is entered once and then when there is a requirement to access data it is available instantly. Managers and employees can enjoy the convenience of self-service access, that’s protected and secure, GDPR compliant and available to only those it should be. Modern cloud solutions like BambooHR and Business ByDesign can store information, and it’s so easy to use, employees, managers and ultimately citizens can generate reports themselves.
 
Cloud is a nice idea, but …

Gone are the days when automated intelligent solutions were only available to big organisations with significant financial resources and large IT departments. Solutions like BambooHR do not require big budgets or indeed IT teams to support it and buying through GCloud means gone are the days a big procurement exercise is required.
 
Easy-to-use and readily affordable cloud solutions are delivering more for less!
