Merseyside Fire and Rescue Authority (MFRA) has selected Netstore to deliver a managed finance and payroll system.
The five-year contract covers software, services and support, and represents “a significant” investment for the authority.
Netstore will deliver to MFRA the latest version of the CedArOpenAccounts eFinancials finance application, and the Midland HR & Payroll Solutions Delphi Millennium payroll application.
MFRA is one of the largest fire authorities in the country, employing 1,800 staff, serving a Merseyside population of 1.4 million.
The new system is designed to help Merseyside devolve financial management extensively to fire station level.
MFRA said this will improve operational efficiency and save money.
The fully managed service will be delivered by Netstore from its data centre at Gateshead, Tyne & Wear.
