The London Borough of Havering is using a geographic information system (GIS) to boost its efficiency.
The council has successfully rolled out a GIS from GGP Systems to 300 users across the authority.
GGP has also provided National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) management software and web mapping technology, enabling Havering to create, manage and distribute information both within the organisation and to external customers and partners.
Havering had seen silos of data build up as different departments compiled records and mapped assets.
GGP's GIS is being used to tie information together with the NLPG property database, providing a central repository of addresses to enable easy referencing and sharing records council wide.
Ray Whitehouse, Havering's head of business systems, said, "GIS provides real street level information that can make a huge difference in improving services and delivering efficiency gains."
