EBMS Nimblex joins VendorPanel, creating a world class Source-to-Pay procurement suite

Business Process Management for Local Government.

Minimise risk and be 100% compliant with a robust, flexible solution.

Nimblex tackles the key challenges local governments face:

Government-specific procedures that don’t fit with large ERP systems

Compliance, clean audits and corruption-free transparency

Secure data and risk reduction

The ability to change the solution as needs grow and change

The need to integrate with current solutions

Alleviate inefficiencies of spreadsheets and manual tasks

Budget constraints

How Councils are using Nimblex:

Councils are independent regarding their own policies and procedures, yet are under the same scrutiny of the Auditor General and the Department for Local Government as larger government departments.

Furthermore, Councils differ based on their current ICT environments which can often be fragmented with many ‘little systems’.

The reality is that there are many smaller Regional and Town Councils for whom the ‘big bang’ approach is just not feasible or affordable. However, they are under the same pressure as the larger Councils when it comes to compliance, reporting and management requirements.

We’ve been helping Councils to standardise and to digitise some of their compliance and key management processes.

Nimblex enables solutions with various touchpoints to each other to all be configured on the same platform ensuring the seamless sharing of data, business rules, user settings, etc. Nimblex offers more than just a one-use capability such as Contract Management, but can be used for the digitisation of numerous other processes.

Work your ideal way

Many of the ERP or Finance solutions used by Councils are inflexible and do not always represent the ideal way they would like to work. Nimblex becomes a more flexible alternative for certain modules and then easily integrates back into other solutions like TechOne, Computron, Civica, etc.
