PALO ALTO, Calif. and HELSINKI, Finland, Feb. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Partners since 2008, Intalio and Arcusys are working together to lower costs and increase responsiveness for municipal governments in Finland. Intalio, the leader in providing tools and technologies that businesses use to build engaging, agile business applications, and Arcusys, a leading provider of custom business solutions in Finland, have leveraged the power of Intalio|bpms to bring enhanced and efficient e-Governance services to more than a dozen Finnish cities and towns.
Finnish municipalities want to make city resources as accessible and self-service as possible. Arcusys has answered their call by implementing an open source eGovernance suite using best practices and technologies available at the market. Arcusys looked towards Intalio|bpms, the world's leading business open source process management software, to integrate with Liferay portal and maximize self-service and process efficiency. Intalio|bpms provides all of the components required to design, deploy and manage business processes and systems orchestration from simple to the most complex.
"Governments entities are working hard to increase service levels and to lower costs, but they need a low-risk solution. As the open source leader in business process management software, Intalio|bpms is an easy choice for Arcusys", said Jussi Hurskainen, Arcusys Managing Director.
Upon completion of an initial the eGovernance project, the contracting city (the City of Oulu) experienced cost savings, time savings, and high resident satisfaction in delivering city services. Other Finnish municipalities took note and sought to develop similar types of eGovernance applications for their residents. Projects completed to date include payment, licensing, permitting, school enrollment, voucher redemption for day care, and appointment reservation applications. In addition, the efficiencies have allowed higher cooperation among the municipalities of South Karelia, North Karelia, North Karelia Tietotekniikkakeskus, Lappeenranta, and Oulu . Especially in the provinces, where the distances are long and some of the services are not easily available, the benefits of eGovernance services is particularly high.
With the Arcusys and Intalio, these municipalities can share key resources, services, and supply procurement activities. Over a dozen Finnish municipalities thus far have implemented eGovernance projects in conjunction with Arcusys and the support of Intalio|bpms.
"Arcusys is a great partner for Intalio. Strongly versed in government processes and highly regarded in their geography, Arcusys is well suited to deliver eGovernance solutions built on the Intalio|bpms platform," said Raj Jain, Intalio CEO
