AECOM has secured a framework agreement with the United Kingdom’s National Health Service to deliver intelligent automation services to public sector organizations across the country.
The deal was finalized through NHS Shared Business Services, which serves as a procurement vehicle for all public health sector organizations in the U.K.
Under the agreement, the consulting firm will provide digital services to help these health agencies achieve greater efficiency in their operations. AECOM’s support is also expected to reduce customer operating costs and risks and improve patients’ experience.
Specifically, the company will perform consulting and technology implementation services associated with intelligent automation adoption, data analytics and business intelligence, resource planning, organization design services, and licensing. The company is also required to train personnel to prepare them for the daily operation of the agencies’ automation systems.
“Intelligent automation has huge potential to bring wide-ranging efficiencies to public services in the U.K.,” Colin Wood, chief executive for Europe and India regions at AECOM, said in a statement.
“Our industry-leading Digital AECOM practitioners look forward to supporting the varied clients on this framework in adopting and implementing this emerging technology to improve business operations and services for their customers.”
