Idox hosting helps Ebbsfleet drive development
- Published: 28 October 2016
Ebbsfleet Development Corporation (EDC), who was set up by Government to speed up delivery of up to 15,000 homes and create a 21st century Garden City in north Kent, has successfully gone live with Idox’s cloud based hosting service.
Provided over a period of 3 years, under the agreement, Idox is responsible for maintaining and updating all systems relating to a range of business functions including Planning and Development Management and ensuring these meet all legislative requirements.
The system also provides online access to related records and documents via Idox’s citizen engagement portal thereby increasing convenience for service users and reducing demand on EDC as a service provider.
The hosted managed services are operated from Idox’s data centre where data is replicated every 15 minutes, backed-up and stored offsite. Adhering to ISO 27001 information security standards, the centre is resilient to emergency situations, such as power outages.
Adopting a managed cloud service from Idox has enabled EDC to benefit from immediate efficiency savings thanks to reduced server and data storage needs. In the future, services can be scaled with ease and with no need for capital equipment investment on the part of EDC.
