The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) is a territorial police force, responsible for the law enforcement in Greater London as well as national responsibilities such as leading and coordinating counter-terrorism efforts and protecting members of the British Royal Family and members of The Cabinet and other ministerial members of Her Majesty's Government.
To support more flexible frontline policing, the MPS needed to develop a technology infrastructure with long-term stability and affordability, to provide a consistent yet adaptable technology platform. The MPS wanted to reduce ICT spending whilst continuing to deliver a quality service with positive public impact.
Changes to workplace practices and improved technical solutions would provide a shift to higher quality and less costly self-service support functions. This would enable the MPS to focus resource on frontline services and core support, which cannot readily be provided from outside the organisation.
bedigital was selected by the MPS to provide a highly-skilled and experienced team to procure new End User Services which included:
Creating an updated device and operating system strategy
Introduction and implementation of the chosen devices
