Two district councils in the United Kingdom formed Compass Point Business Services (CPBS) to provide shared, back-office and frontline service delivery and enable the savings and efficiencies public-sector entities must achieve. CPBS required a robust business infrastructure to enable effective service delivery. Engaging with Hitachi Solutions and Microsoft, the company implemented Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM in integration with specialized business systems. Providing financial, human resources, and benefits management together with constituent services, CPBS uses technology to fulfill the promise of the new business model. The company is on track to deliver savings of an average 3 million (approximately US$4.9 million) per year with new efficiencies.
