Local / Regional Government

We help Local and Regional Government organisations make sense of their data, with secure and cost-effective solutions.

Our Expertise in Local Government

Local Authorities and Regional Government bodies collect and maintain some of the richest citizen data assets. The insights hidden in these disconnected datasets are vital to driving service efficiencies in the face of squeezed budgets, improving service design, quality, and for targeting and safeguarding vulnerable citizens.

However, too often, a lack of available technology and skills present barriers when needing to integrate disconnected datasets, create trusted insights and deliver them to consumers on-time for informed decision making.

Simpson Associates have extensive experience, supporting Local Government and Regional Government to transform disconnected data into trusted actionable insight. Some of the organisations we have had the privilege of working with include St Helens Council, Hull City Council, Stockport Council, Swansea City Council, Isle of Wight, and Leeds City Council.

I highly recommend Simpson Associates to other local government authorities. Their team worked in partnership with us to deliver a data platform in Azure for our Revenue and Benefits function, they also delivered Power BI training across the Council and are now working with us on constructing our Council wide data strategy. Simpson Associates anticipated our needs throughout the project, followed through on their promises and were always concise in their communication. It’s great to work with such a professional and data driven team.

Planning, budgeting and Forecasting Icon Planning, budgeting and Forecasting

Simpson Associates has experience of working with finance teams in the public sector. Some still spend an inordinate amount of time in manual, spreadsheet-based processes – collecting, consolidating and validating data. Because of that, they are often unable to deliver plans, budgets, forecasts, reports, and value-added analyses without working under significant time pressures. The net result of these pressures can be budgets or re-forecasts being submitted without the level of scrutiny and verification required.

Gain greater control and insight, with a real-time platform that provides a clear line of sight to understand and guide performance. Simpson Associates enables Local and Regional Governments to:

  • Reduce the time, effort, complexity and potential errors introduced by manual Excel-based financial planning processes
  • Simply create integrated income & expenditure information, cash flow, and balance sheets
  • Create a new forecast based on your actuals or a previous forecast or budget, quickly make changes and see your new forecast within minutes not days
