Concerto goes live at States of Jersey
Jersey Property holdings (JPH), the States of Jersey property department, went out to tender earlier this year for a modern property asset management software solution that would offer centralised, full life cycle property asset management support across the department for all property management functions.
Since being awarded the contract, Concerto has been working alongside States of Jersey on a number of bespoke developments. This has included two-way financial interfaces between the Concerto property asset management software solution and Jersey’s internal finance system. This interface will now give the department a 360 degree consolidated view of financial performance.
The States of Jersey will be going live with Concerto on 4th January with the following elements:
- Managing core asset data
- Automated bi-directional finance interface with the states ERP system
- Planned preventative maintenance
- Reactive helpdesk
- Revenue projects
- Supplier’s portal
Concerto and JPH have also worked closely together to align the solution with Jersey’s colloquial terms, many of which are not used in the UK.
“Further to the above, which follows our standard implementation directive, we have made some alterations to the software so that we can now further accommodate specific client terminology. In certain areas States of Jersey use specific terminology, such as “Vingtaine” which literally translates as “group of twenty” in French. This is what our U.K mainland local authority clients, know as “Parish” against a site record. Additionally Jersey does not have VAT instead, a tax called Goods and Services Tax (GST) at a rate of 5%. Whilst the system could already accommodate various tax rates it was important that we made certain labels configurable so the end users feel at one with the software”.
