Flintshire county Council purchased the PROACTIS Purchase to Pay (P2P) application in June 2011. They required a Project Manager to implement the solution and to train and roll-out the system across all council offices and primary schools. Flintshire Council has 10,000 employees.
A project board as well as project team were formed when I came on board in July 2011. The first phase of the project was to roll out to a Pilot directorate - this went live in December 2011. Once a thorough pilot had taken place, roll out then commenced across the 3 main directorates of the council - Lifelong Learning, Community Services and Environment - each a separate business within the council.
The project was implemented on time and within budget and is used throughout the council today.
