Scottish Police and Fire services choose Civica to help improve administration

and reduce costs



London, September 18 2014 - Civica, a market leader in specialist systems and business
process services that help organisations transform the way they work has secured new
contracts for its market-leading fleet management systems with both Scottish Fire and Police
Scotland.

Following the combination in 2013 of the eight Scottish police forces and eight fire services
to form Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service respectively, both
independently chose Civicas Tranman software to manage their large national fleets. In
addition to helping achieve efficiency savings anticipated by the respective single
organisations, Civicas ability to as a partner for the future was also a key factor in the
selection,
Civicas unrivalled experience of successfully merging systems together, integrating multiple
and large datasets into a single database, whilst driving out savings, was a key factor in the
decision for both organisations. Civica have a huge breadth of experience in the emergency
services having carried out similar projects before for Norfolk and Suffolk Police, Kent and
Essex Police, and most recently a shared system in between 3 Yorkshire police forces.
Both organisations will be using Tranmans innovative touchscreen technology in their
workshops spread across Scotland, allowing data to be easily input by technicians directly
into the system, giving the central teams visibility of current availability and costs
immediately.
Stewart Taylor, National Fleet Manager at Police Scotland comments We needed a state of
the art system, using the latest technology, to enable us to standardise processes quickly
across the new organisation, and ensure maximum efficiency in our operations. Tranman
proved to be the system that could not only deliver that now, but as a strategic partner over
the long term."
This success for Civica means the company provides national fleet management systems to
all three emergency services in Scotland, including the Scottish Ambulance Service, as well
as half of the 32 Scottish local authorities.
