Esprit Limited

Grand Hall, Stand 104

London Olympia, UK – Esprit Limited will be demonstrating and discussing their installed and planned multi-agency solutions for the public and corporate sectors at the Online Information Show 2003. Of particular note is work being undertaken by the company for RYOGENS, an online e-government project contributing to the national strategy for e-local government.

RYOGENS is an initiative to help protect vulnerable children and young people from becoming involved in crime and to reduce youth crime and antisocial behaviours. Sponsored by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, it is being developed by Warwickshire, Lewisham and Tower Hamlets in collaboration with Deloittes, with the technical solution being provided by Esprit. The solution will consist of a process for co-ordinating the safe gathering, sharing and analysis of personal information about children and young people. Agencies such as Education, Health, Police, Probation, Social Services, Youth Offending Teams and Anti-social Behaviour units will be able to raise a concern and know that an alert will result so that speedy and effective action can be taken.

Also on show will be Esprit’s Democratic Services solution, running at Birmingham County Council, which helps councils co-ordinate their cabinet and committee management activities while at the same time seamlessly creating a more inclusive and citizen-focused democratic framework and supporting the scrutiny process.

In addition, visitors will be able to discuss and view the Partnership in Action Barnsley (PIAB) solution that uses the production of information gateways and applications to break down the barriers between previously closed information systems and departments. At Barnsley, disparate data from multiple legacy systems is securely integrated, viewed and manipulated via a wide variety of applications, environments and devices such as web and PDA access.

The Westminster City Council solution to deliver public access to the Sense of Place London Ten Generations and FACET partner websites will also be on the stand. Using the full capabilities of Esprit’s xdirectory Content Management System (CMS), the public is given the freedom to choose how they explore information on the social and economic development of London. In addition, it organises, manages, retrieves and delivers text, images, digital graphics, animation, sound and video to a user interface.

Esprit will also be discussing their eResource management and print management solutions in Higher Education aimed at maximising the value that establishments extract from their investments in IT infrastructure components, improving the quality of service to end users, delivering high returns on investment and managed cost recovery and freeing up the time of IT and Information professionals so that they are able to concentrate on their roles of locating, acquiring and collating appropriate information resources for their users.

Esprit was recently in the news for being bought by the Dokimas Group. Recent areas of focus for the company in the e-Government sphere includes Identification, Referral and Tracking (IRT), Single Assessment Process for older people (SAP), Freedom of Information (FOI) and Democratic Accountability and Scrutiny. Within the corporate and education sector, solutions are being developed and installed in the areas of Research and Enquiry Management and e-Resource management solutions within a variety of leading pharmaceutical companies, management consultants and universities.
