Liquidlogic has announced that 25% of local authorities in England are now using its IT solutions for children’s services.

The company said that over the past 12 months it had won 89% of tenders for children’s services, making it the largest provider of IT solutions for children’s services in England.

Liquidlogic, which is part of the System C group, said 38 local authorities use its children’s services solutions including PROTOCOL ICS and eCAF. Tenders won in the last year include the provision of PROTOCOL ICS to Bolton, Surrey and Cheshire West and Chester Council.

Liquidlogic said its products include systems to support early intervention by enabling multi-agency working.

They also support targeted case-based processes for children who are referred to social services and help teams working with disabled children.

Ted Brierley, Liquidlogic’s managing director, said the ideas and feedback of staff and customers had helped to continually improve the solutions to be as user-friendly and effective as possible.

He said that over the past few years there has been a move towards linking up the delivery of services and more recently local authorities had begun to connect children’s and adults’ services.

He added: “This collaborative approach, which links up the delivery of a range of services – noticeably social care and health services – will be at the heart of future care services.

"Our flexible solutions mean that it is easy for local authorities to make this change.”
