The City of Gothenburg chooses Procapita from TietoEnator for modern operational support

The City of Gothenburg chooses Procapita from TietoEnator for modern operational support The City of Gothenburg has chosen TietoEnator's operational support, Procapita Child and Youth (Barn och Ungdom). The system which is the market leader within local government child and youth operations, will be used by the City's 21 neighbourhood committees. In addition, the City of Gothenburg will use TietoEnator's local government resident register KIR. Procapita is estimated to be in full- scale use during April 2001. - We wanted to replace our own in-house developed system with a more modern platform in order to avoid, among other things, our own maintenance and development. The final choice rested on two systems and having evaluated them from the criteria of functionality, economy and technique, the choice fell on Procapita Child and Youth, says Jan Persson at Gothenburg City administrative services department. Under continuous development Among the advantages that the users will experience with Procapita Child and Youth, is a Windows interface that everyone recognizes and which makes the system easy to use according to Jan Persson. - Procapita has many users around the country and this guarantees that the system is under continual development and is adapted to current requirements. A possible development for us is to continue with new functions, for example, for upper secondary schools and adult education, says Jan Persson. - The City of Gothenburg has chosen the market's largest product that is to be found in some 150 local governments. We can guarantee that Procapita is continuously developed with the latest technology. In addition, we have a broad operational knowledge and we know what the local governments demand, says Christer Sandrehav at TietoEnator - This business transaction means that our co-operation with the City of Gothenburg is further intensified, and is something which naturally pleases us, says Bo Gärdfors, Marketing Manager at TietoEnator Public Partner.
