iPad in Local Government

Modernising Local Government Services with iPads

Local government is responsible for the vital services that our communities rely on, from social care and schools to housing and planning.

With more than one million people working in local government, and providing more than 800 different services, technology has a huge impact on the productivity of employees and the quality of service received by the public.

When government employees rely on outdated and manual processes or solutions that don’t solve users’ needs inefficiencies, delays and added hidden costs are created.

Carefully rethinking how employees do their work and giving them the right tools can help employees to be more productive and improve the level of service to the public.

Empowering government workers with the right tools and technology simultaneously improves efficiency and employee morale, creating benefits for local communities whose needs can be met more quickly.

With the right apps, iPad can be deployed to improve fieldwork processes. Councils with a large field workforce can replace multiple tools with one device to streamline the collection of information. With more efficient processes, employees can stay in the field longer, improving the quality of service they provide.


iPad helps employees remain productive wherever their work takes them. iPad brings the power of desktop computing to a portable device that users are familiar with and enjoy using.

Digitising local government processes will improve the efficiency of admin and take a closer step to a net-zero environment with the removal of paper and unnecessary travel. Workers can access popular tools on iPad, commonly used by local government, such as Microsoft Office, Teams and Box.

Training and Development

iPad is a powerful tool for meeting the training needs of individuals and teams, from the onboarding of new employees to ongoing compliance training. Training programmes delivered with iPad make it easier to evaluate the effectiveness of the training.

Advances in mobile technologies, machine learning and cloud computing are creating new opportunities for Learning and Development teams to integrate training into every employee's working day.
