Adur and Worthing select West Pier to modernise cloud infrastructure

Adur and Worthing council have selected West Pier to upgrade 3 separate legacy telephone systems and the accompanying infrastructure. The Council’s technology strategy recognises the need for the organisation to adapt so it can thrive. To do so, it needs to make the best tools available to staff and be able to redesign and digitise ser-vices using flexible and reliable cloud-based technologies. Through 2018 an in-flight project will move the vast majority of on premise services to an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider. The Strategy focuses on digital services and shifting to cloud services. The development of digital services is expected to reduce the use of ‘traditional’ telephony as a route for contacting the Councils in the future. Telephony is however, currently the primary contact method and is deemed high priority.
