    Wirral Borough Council are a longstanding Concerto user group member.

    Our latest development alongside the Council is the implementation of a timesheet interface from the Concerto Property Asset Management solution to Wirral’s ERP system.

    This development will allow the transfer of time recorded against a project in Concerto over to the finance system for re billing. The benefits are that it ensures that project managers can forecast predicted time and report on time expended. In addition, finance colleagues will have the ability to journal funds.

    7c1124ee-b98d-4a34-a9c7-c5d7fd6e42c2

    Concerto is delighted to announce the next phase of implementation of the concerto Asset Management suite Jersey Property Holdings, States of Jersey.

    Since being awarded this 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 went live with Concerto last year 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.

    Phase 2 of the implementation project has now been green lighted and is underway. This is to include managing the rent roll and interfaces to the states of Jersey finance system.

    Concerto has been announced as the software of choice for the Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

    The Trust has selected Concerto via the Government’s Digital Marketplace framework G-Cloud. Launched in 2012, the G-Cloud framework aims to promote the adoption of cloud-based software applications in Central Government and the wider Public Sector in order to improve performance levels and reduce procurement costs. Concerto has been a part of the framework since 2013 and has just recently been awarded a place on G Cloud 8.

    G-Cloud offers the Trust with an alternative procurement solution, negating the need to undertake lengthy tender processes and qualification procedures. Based on a 2 year contract (maximum allowable under G Cloud rules) clients are able to pay a simple annual fee for the license, support and hosting. In addition the daily rates for implementation, project management and date take on are also purchased through G Cloud Framework.

    Concerto is being rolled out across the Trust to manage its Property and assets portfolio. Implementation will take on a phased approach and include the following property management functionality:

    • Core sites
    • Estates
    • Planned and reactive maintenance
    • Projects
    • Programmes
    • Budgets Management
    • Associated administrative functions
    • Facilities Management Helpdesk and PPM
