Derbyshire County Council strengthens brand and integrates processes

Following extensive research and analysis of requirements and options, the council’s communications division and business centre implemented Panacea Software in 2017, with the following objectives:

  • Create an efficient and shared process for all design and print in order to save time and money for the council
  • Improve productivity for both teams and ensure best use of the expertise and facilities in the council’s print unit
  • Allow council officers to use branded templates to create their own artwork for standard materials with clear, auditable approval processes
By implementing Panacea Software we have created a simple, shared workflow for all design and print to make these services more efficient and a more productive use of in-house resources. By doing this we ensure better use of the expertise and facilities in our print unit. Streamlining our processes has eliminated replication of data input and my team now spend less time on administration, so reducing corporate expenditure. The software provides instant and comprehensive management reports to support and inform effective management decisions and respond to supplier challenge and FOI requests.
