As a result of changes in government funding over the last few years, Nottinghamshire County Council have sought to replace their existing model for service delivery. In September 2015 as part of the County Council’s Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS), the Council successfully embarked on a new joint venture with another publically owned company, Scape Group Ltd. The key purpose of the joint venture (known as Arc Property Services Partnership) is for:
• The provision of building design, refurbishments and operations
• Long-term sustainability
• A modern and sustainable service delivery model
“Scape is a very successful company that has achieved outstanding results in recent years. The company was selected due to its ethos and ability to compliment the council’s in house skills and resources.”
Nottinghamshire County Council has been a valued and long-standing user of the Concerto solution for the management of all operational and non-operational assets across the Council, along with the management of its capital programme. The Concerto solution is now being carried over under the umbrella of the new joint venture and will continue to play a key role in the efficient and successful management of Nottinghamshire county Council’s property portfolio.
Implementation is well under way and Care Line, the new help desk department, is now live and taking reactive maintenance calls via the Concerto help desk. Concerto are now working together with Arc on subtle developments to the Compliance module in order to streamline the solution with the Council’s internal processes and aim to go live with the Project Management module within the next month.
“We are working well with Concerto to have the Joint Venture, Arc Property Services Partnership, up and running by 1st June 2016”.

Concerto via G Cloud
We are delighted to welcome Stirling Council to our user group and to our growing group of Scottish Authorities using the Concerto integrated asset management solution.
After purchasing Concerto via the Government’s Digital marketplace – G-Cloud, the team at Stirling is working together with Concerto to implement the solution across their property department
The G Cloud Digital Marketplace is proving a success for public sector organisations that wish to buy directly, speeding up their procurement by bypassing the tender process. Concerto has welcomed a number of new public sector clients who have purchased via G-Cloud in 2016, including Wiltshire Council and Stirling Council.
“We are very pleased to welcome Stirling Council to our Scottish user group and look forward to working together. Our G-Cloud listing has proven a success for both ourselves and our Public Sector clients”
Kevan Davey, Managing Directo, Concerto
Concerto has recently been accepted onto the new G Cloud 7 Framework and is now available via both the existing UK G Cloud 6 and the new G-Cloud 7 Government Digital Marketplace portal. Our comprehensive listing is categorised under the SaaS category.
With inclusion onto the G-Cloud Digital Marketplace, Concerto has been able to extend its offerings within the public sector. With all necessary information available, perspective public sector clients can purchase any or all of the comprehensive Concerto software solutions directly from the Marketplace and bypass the tender process altogether.
“We are delighted with the results of our inclusion on G Cloud. We have been awarded a number of new public sector contracts over the past 12 months, and some existing clients have chosen to renew their contracts with us via the Marketplace too. This shows that it really works for both the client and supplier.”
