Bury Council is in the running for an innovation award for its inspiring use of the ‘Bury Directory’ – an online hub pioneered by Idox’s Open Objects, offering easy access to integrated information about health, social care and community services.
The Council – a longstanding Open Objects customer – is awaiting the outcome of the iNetwork Innovation Award, to be announced at an official ceremony taking place before the opening of the annual iNetwork ‘Leading Places’ conference.
The event, which will also be attended by Open Objects, will welcome delegates from the North of England and the Midlands who work across the public sector. It aims to share best practice on ‘place-based working’, as well as showcasing the localities that are leading on service reform and delivery in areas such as information sharing, data analytics, partnership working, and data standards.
We wish Bury Council the best of luck at the awards ceremony and look forward to hearing them discuss their use of the Bury Directory during their conference workshop later this month!
