Representatives from nineteen councils from across Scotland attended Mobile Scotland 2012 in Edinburgh to learn how they can make the most of Mobile Working – to improve productivity, efficiency and delivery of public services with limited resources – from tech industry giants like Motorola, Fujitsu and Vodafone.

The event, held in Edinburgh’s COSLA Conference Centre on September 25th, was hosted by Consilium, a company that specialises in Enterprise Mobility (enabling broad use of mobile computing to deliver services) and gave attendees insights into how mobile technology can be cost effective as well as give quick returns on investment.

Success stories were shared to show councils that they can make Mobile Technology work for them: for instance, the Aberdeen City Council saves GBP 1.5 million annually within its Building Services Department after implementing solutions by Consilium.

According to Consilium Business Manager Ciaran McClintock, “Local Authorities in Scotland are investigating Mobile Working as the best solution for improving services in the face of resource constraints. These councils are moving forward and seeking to modernise their working processes”.
