East Midlands PSN goes live and looking for more sign ups
East Midlands Public Services Network is now live

The KCom-supplied East Midlands Public Services Network (emPSN) is now live for schools and users are calling for other local public sector organisations to sign up to the network. The network is connected to more than 1,000 schools and 400 Lincolnshire County Council sites, which allows the organisations to collaborate and save costs, improve service delivery to residents and encourage mobility and flexible working. CIO of Lincolnshire County Council, Judith Hetherington Smith, is pleased with the move as the council can expect 50% of cost savings through the PSN.

According to Smith, “The transition to live operation is important but it is only the start. We’ve now got a great opportunity to encourage other public sector organisations, across the whole region, to transition their services to emPSN. That includes local authorities, health trusts, emergency services and charitable organisations, particularly those that support the delivery of public services, particularly in Lincolnshire, which suffers because of the rural nature of the county.
