Building the foundations for a Smarter Scotland

We partner with two of Scotland’s largest local authorities including Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, and the capital city, Edinburgh, to deliver a range of services from strategic transformation to managing existing IT estates. We are working with Edinburgh City Council to deliver their smart city ambitions such as working with Total Mobile – transforming social care services to benefit citizens and enhance sustainability. In addition, we are implementing world-leading IP, such as CGI SensorInsights360 technology to improve services such as housing, education and waste collection.

We are also working with three different local authorities to provide a digital education solution called Empowered Learning. This helps to raise attainment by supporting learning and teaching.

We are supporting rural communities such as the Scottish Borders to become the UK’s first smart, connected rural region.

City of Edinburgh Council


Edinburgh Council is one of the largest local government authorities in the UK, with some 17,000 employees providing services to almost 500,000 people. We have worked with the City of Edinburgh Council since 2015 to make the city a smart place, harnessing technology to ensure the Council delivers higher quality services to its citizens.

Working in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council, we deliver a series of interlinked core transformation projects to help the council work more efficiently. Together we are helping to make the City of Edinburgh a smart place.
