Sussex Police aspires to better BI

Force chooses Actuate Performancesoft Views to deliver performance reporting information to its more than 5000 strong staff

Sussex Police has chosen Actuate Performancesoft Views to deliver business intelligence (BI) performance reporting information to its more than 5000 strong workforce as part of its Sussex Police Information Reporting Environment (SPIRE) programme.

SPIRE is the key management information programme for delivering performance information to the Sussex Police force. In order to improve visibility and access to this performance information across the organisation, Sussex Police needed a tool that could be accessed on every user desktop offering  capabilities such as drill down functionality; highly visual and dynamic strategy maps and reports; and compatibility with multiple data sources.

Sussex is a high performing Force, and we pride ourselves on delivering a quality service to the public. Having rapid access to up-to-date, accurate information is an important part of achieving that. Actuate Performancesoft Views consolidates our existing, wide range of performance data together in one place, so all our staff can make good and efficient use of it,” said Geoff Williams, Deputy Chief Constable, Sussex Police.

Sussex Police can now publish user and station specific Briefing Books on both the internal Intranet and the Internet, which enables the force to deliver performance information to every user in the organisation.

Sussex uses standard national performance indicators and other local indicators to assess how well it’s delivering on its priorities: sustaining its good record on tackling crime and disorder, strengthening neighbourhood policing, keeping the public safe and making best use of Force resources. Overall, the force scores highly by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) and by the Audit Commission through the Use of Resources Evaluation.
