OLM Systems, a leading software and services company supporting local authorities and supporting organisations, has been awarded approved supplier status on the Scotland Excel Framework for the supply and delivery of social care case management solutions software.

OLM Systems, a leading software and services company supporting local authorities and supporting organisations, has been awarded approved supplier status on the Scotland Excel Framework for the supply and delivery of social care case management solutions software.

The award provides UK public sector organisations access to OLM’s award-winning ECLIPSE software, next-generation technology which can be procured directly through the framework. The lots provide options for the public sector organisations, dependant on where they are on their digital transformation journey:  Lot 1: On-Premise; Lot 2: Hosted; Lot 3: Software as a Service. OLM has been awarded a place on all three lots.

Scotland Excel has recognised the importance of Cloud First in the Scottish Local Authority transformation journey, thus created the Software as a Service Lot 3 specifically to enable councils to modernise their infrastructure and be fit for the future.

The Software as a Service, Lot 3 meets the Government’s Cloud First Programme; to encourage and support public sector bodies towards using cloud services and realise the benefits of cloud computing. With their investment in Cloud Native technology, which enables Scottish Authorities to transform their services it is no surprise that OLM was highest in the Scotland Excel scoring.

Mark Raeburn, managing director, at OLM states,

“As a key supplier in Scottish social care, we are delighted that this framework will give Scottish local authorities an easy route to procure.  Against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, this has been a time of reflection for many public sector organisations in the UK to review their current systems and plan for the future. While hosted software offers some improvements compared to on-premise, unfortunately, they are still based on the issues found within legacy technology. Software as a Service provides superior usability, performance, agility and ease of integration.  We are delighted that Scotland Excel has recognised this, and are mirroring the Scottish Government advice, by creating a distinct category Lot 3 Software as a Service.

Lot 3 enables local authorities to select a system that is suited to what is becoming more of the norm, remote working and provide a solution which has the right architecture and the agility to adapt to future requirements. We look forward to helping local authorities transform and deliver a positive difference to the people of Scotland.”
