Intalio and Arcusys bring eGovernance to municipalities across Finland with Intalio bpms
GlobeNewswire
2013-02-27


PALO ALTO, Calif. and HELSINKI, Finland, Feb. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
-- Partners since 2008, Intalio and Arcusys are working together to
lower costs and increase responsiveness for municipal governments in
Finland. Intalio, the leader in providing tools and technologies that
businesses use to build engaging, agile business applications, and
Arcusys, a leading provider of custom business solutions in Finland,
have leveraged the power of Intalio|bpms to bring enhanced and
efficient e-Governance services to more than a dozen Finnish cities and
towns.

Finnish municipalities want to make city resources as accessible and
self-service as possible. Arcusys has answered their call by
implementing an open source eGovernance suite using best practices and
technologies available at the market. Arcusys looked towards
Intalio|bpms, the world's leading business open source process
management software, to integrate with Liferay portal and maximize
self-service and process efficiency. Intalio|bpms provides all of the
components required to design, deploy and manage business processes and
systems orchestration from simple to the most complex.

"Governments entities are working hard to increase service levels and
to lower costs, but they need a low-risk solution. As the open source
leader in business process management software, Intalio|bpms is an easy
choice for Arcusys", said Jussi Hurskainen, Arcusys Managing Director.

Upon completion of an initial the eGovernance project, the contracting
city (the City of Oulu) experienced cost savings, time savings, and
high resident satisfaction in delivering city services. Other Finnish
municipalities took note and sought to develop similar types of
eGovernance applications for their residents. Projects completed to
date include payment, licensing, permitting, school enrollment, voucher
redemption for day care, and appointment reservation applications. In
addition, the efficiencies have allowed higher cooperation among the
municipalities of South Karelia, North Karelia, North Karelia
Tietotekniikkakeskus, Lappeenranta, and Oulu . Especially in the
provinces, where the distances are long and some of the services are
not easily available, the benefits of eGovernance services is
particularly high.

With the Arcusys and Intalio, these municipalities can share key
resources, services, and supply procurement activities. Over a dozen
Finnish municipalities thus far have implemented eGovernance projects
in conjunction with Arcusys and the support of Intalio|bpms.

"Arcusys is a great partner for Intalio. Strongly versed in government
processes and highly regarded in their geography, Arcusys is well
suited to deliver eGovernance solutions built on the Intalio|bpms
platform," said Raj Jain, Intalio CEO
