O2 has set its sights on the public sector with the launch of a new proposition aiming to connect staff, IT systems and communications.
Joined Up Public Services is led by Billy D’Arcy, MD of O2 Public Sector, and follows the creation of its Public Sector wing, which bid on lots in the Government’s Public Services Network contract last year. The approach aims to help public sector organisations develop better and more efficient ways of working, as well as developing tools for public sector employees.
D’Arcy said: ‘Digital services hold the key to helping the public sector make crucial savings – whether through policies and devices to empower staff to work more flexibly, or a mobile app to make it easier for local authorities to engage with communities. We have created Joined Up Public Services to help our public sector customers tackle some of their toughest challenges, by putting digital services at the heart of every solution.
‘O2 has a proven track record of helping some of Britain’s biggest private enterprises transform the way they work through technology. We’re also responsible for the digital services of over 23 million citizens, every day. Because of this we believe we’re perfectly placed to understand the challenges faced by public sector organisations to deliver day in, day out. It’s this experience that allows us to bring a unique perspective in helping our public sector customers deliver great service through technology.’
