Luton Borough Council creates effective workflow and halves its design and print bill
In January 2014, the sole supplier contract for Luton Borough Council’s design and print services was terminated at short notice. With an urgent need to avoid any gap in service, Luton quickly implemented Panacea Software to fulfil the services the sole supplier had provided.
New process implemented in just four weeks:
The software’s automated transaction processes for purchasing, payment and charging were tailored to interface with Luton’s finance systems and to save time for all parties.
Responsibility for the council’s design and print requirements fell to just one member of their already stretched communications team, saving the council £132K per annum when compared to the price paid to the sole supplier to manage this work.
By directly engaging local and national design and print suppliers through automated pricing and selection processes, this one-man-band has further reduced the prices the council pays for this work by 43%, when compared to the rates charged by the sole supplier.
