The Scottish Legal Aid Board (SLAB) is the public body responsible for managing legal aid in Scotland. SLAB enables individuals, who otherwise would be unable to afford it, get help for their legal problems. Running efficient IT systems is an important element in delivering this successfully, which is why this is such an important move.
SLAB is now the first Scottish public body to make the transition to Oracle Cloud. Oracle Platinum Partner Inoapps, has now implemented finance (ERP), i-expenses, and procurement in the Cloud, including sourcing and invoice scanning at SLAB’s HQ in Edinburgh. Oracle Cloud HCM and Payroll is set to follow shortly. This move also represents the first public sector implementation of Oracle Payroll Cloud in both Scotland and the UK.
John McLeod, Head of Information Systems at SLAB, said:
“We chose Inoapps to drive our implementation as it is a proven and award-winning Cloud adopter with a successful track record in delivering multi-pillar Oracle Cloud implementations.”
“What really impressed us was the strength of their implementation team, as well as their change management capabilities and strong alliance with Oracle. There was also a willingness to listen to and interpret our needs in the partnership.”
“By consolidating financial, HR and payroll processes into one system, we hope to achieve far greater visibility of these activities across the organisation. This, combined with the improved reporting capabilities available in Oracle Cloud, should lead to improved insight and decision-making.”
Andrew Norris, Head of Inoapps’ European Business said:
“We’re very pleased to add SLAB to our growing list of public sector clients. We understand that, across the board, the sector is under mounting pressure to pursue a cloud first agenda to streamline processes and achieve cost efficiencies.”
“The nature of our Oracle Cloud solutions and Managed Services is highly transferable across many industries, and together with over a decade’s experience in Oracle and our status as Oracle’s Cloud First Partner of the Year, this has been instrumental in us securing ongoing work within the Public Sector.”
