Wrexham County Borough Council
Wrexham County Borough Council, in North East Wales, serves a mixed industrial and rural area. Based around the town of Wrexham, it has a population of 130,000 and covers approximately 503 square kilometres. Wrexham had successfully implemented three back-office applications from Northgate, supporting planning, building control and environmental health. Users of all three however needed access to a variety of associated documents, all of which were stored in an electronic document management system from Comino. Initially Wrexham pursued the possibility of directly integrating the Northgate applications with the Comino system. This functionality was implemented for the planning application but to achieve this for the others would involve an additional investment of £15,000 per application. It therefore looked for another, more-cost effective approach.
