Prior to the onset of COVID, one of the most diverse London boroughs, Barking and Dagenham began initiating digital transformation efforts in partnership with Xerox to support their long-term vision: One borough, one community, no-one left behind. When pandemic restrictions were imposed, the council's cloud and digital transition efforts were accelerated allowing the council to continue services and communication to their customers and fulfill procurement needs uninterrupted.

In this seminar, recorded as part of the Public Sector Show virtual summit, hear from Paul Ingram, Chief Information Officer, and Carly Bucknell, Commercial Support Officer, on how the council was able to transition to digital and cloud-based services amidst a global pandemic and save around £200,000 for reinvestment in front-line services, in the first year alone.
