(PresseBox) ( United Kingdom, )
Axios Systems, the world's leading provider of IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions, has further penetrated the public sector market with the recent Xentrall implementation of the out-of-the-box software, assyst. Formed by a public to public strategic partnership between Darlington and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Councils, Xentrall delivers services in ICT, Design & Print, HR and Finance to both councils.

Xentrall supports Darlington and Stockton in transforming their ICT services to deliver cost savings and improve efficiencies. The two neighbouring unitary authority councils, with a combined population of around 300,000, have a culture of innovation and service improvement and are highly rated by the Audit Commission. This is shown in their recent CPA (Comprehensive Performance Assessment) results, which refers to a council's overall performance compared to others in England. Xentrall wanted to consolidate the separate Service Desks into one to create a centralised support function, with the possibility of further consolidating other support functions further down the line. Their aim in doing this was to provide efficient and effective support for both councils and reduce operational costs, thus maximising efficiencies.

assyst was chosen by Xentrall as the solution that would best meet these requirements and provide a single, consolidated data repository and IT Service Management tool. assyst will help Xentrall maximise the availability of both councils key services, including Revenues and Benefits, Housing Systems and email in order to provide business users what they need, when they need it. This will ensure that they can effectively support the initiatives of both councils and demonstrate value to the residents of Darlington and Stockton. Delivering service excellence to the business user is a key factor in the success of the project and assyst will allow Xentrall to align their ICT systems and services to the ITIL guidelines in order to achieve this.

Ian Miles, Head of ICT, Xentrall, says, "We selected the assyst IT Service Management tool based on its alignment with ITIL and its multi-tenancy capability, allowing us to support both councils centrally, while keeping the data segregated and individual to each council. Axios clearly demonstrated how they intended to meet our objectives with assyst and showed us how they had already helped other organisations achieve similar goals."

Ailsa Symeonides, Sales & Marketing Director, Axios Systems, says, "Axios already has a proven track record in the public sector with customers including West Lothian Council, Fife NHS and Thames Valley Police. assyst's capability to enable a Shared Services model has been utilised by many customers already and the Xentrall partnership is further proof of its success in this type of implementation."
