The fourth largest authority in Scotland, the North Lanarkshire Council has chosen QPR Software Plcís scorecard solution, QPR ScoreCard, for better performance management. The solution will provide councilís service practitioners, managers, elected members and members of the North Lanarkshire Partnership a possibility to monitor a range of performance measures set against strategic and operational initiatives. Based in the heart of Scotland, North Lanarkshire has a population of around 323,000.

Linda Johnson, Corporate Service Improvement Manager at North Lanarkshire Council said: "QPR ScoreCard was selected for its ease of use, clear picture based navigation and detailed drill-down functionality. It will allow identification of performance trends using real-time information and greater collaboration with partners around performance requirements for the single outcome agreement and community plan. This intuitive solution will be used across all levels of our organisation".

Maija Erkheikki, Vice President, Channel Sales Europe and Americas at QPR said: "North Lanarkshire Council undertook an extremely thorough procurement exercise so we're delighted they chose our solution as the tool to help them support their performance strategy and meet key targets. We look forward to working with them and helping in this process. The deal further strengthens our role as performance management solution provider not just for corporate customers, but also for public sector."

In addition to North Lanarkshire, more than 20 local government organizations in UK upgrade their operational performance with QPR solutions. E.g. the Scottish Argyll and Bute Councill, employing a staff of 5,500 decided in February 2008 to deploy QPR ScoreCard for service improvement. QPRís partner both in North Lanarkshire and Argyll and Bute Council system delivery is UK IT specialist CACI Ltd.
