South Downs National Park Authority go-live with Aspireview Performance, Project & Risk Management Solution
Recognised as an area of outstanding beauty, the South Downs National Park uniquely combines a biodiverse landscape with bustling towns and villages, covers an area of over 1,600 km2 and is home to more than 112,343 people. It is steeped in history and traditional English culture, and stretches nearly 100 miles from just outside the ancient cathedral city of Winchester in the west to the outskirts of Eastbourne in the east.
"South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA) chose Aspireview to help manage performance because it is a flexible tool that could be readily tailored to our requirements and will allow us to present our performance information in a consistent manner. We also had the benefit of learning from the Welsh National Parks who already use the system. We are using Aspireview to report on our Partnership Management Plan objectives and will be using it to monitor progress on major delivery projects. We were particularly interested in using the facility Aspireview offers for our Partners to put their performance data directly into the system.
SDNPA are using Aspireview to manage our own Performance Indicators, Action Plans and Risks by implementing our Corporate and Operational Plans, Risk Register, through departmental dashboards allowing easy access to performance and project information. Planning data is automatically populated from our Uniform IDox system and we will be looking to further automate data transfer from other systems used in the organisation." Anne Rehill, South Downs National Park Authority.
Using Aspireview will allow SDNPA to move to a more mature approach to performance management, by holding and displaying data in a way which allows better analysis of performance to drive improvement. It also supports users by allowing information to be put into the system once but then used in many ways. This promotes consistency and reduces potential for errors in data.
"We were impressed with the support and commitment from the implementation team, who were flexible in their approach and were always able and happy to provide advice and support when we needed it." Anne Rehill, South Downs National Park Authority.
