The council has signed up to the Liquidlogic Early Years & Education System (EYES). Already the provider of the council’s Early Help, Children’s and Adults’ social care solution, EYES will provide the final jigsaw piece of information for social workers at the council.
Speaking about the new contract, Liquidlogic’s Managing Director, David Grigsby, said “Knowsley Council wanted to ensure that social workers were able to view the complete picture of a child in as little time as possible; EYES will support that by providing relevant and timely information. In addition to this, rationalising the number of systems suppliers to the Council has obvious time saving benefits for the IT Team. We look forward to working with Knowsley Council to make their vision a reality.”
Cllr Margaret Harvey, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “We want to provide all education, early years and social work teams alike with as much relevant information as possible to help support their work with children and families in the borough. By signing up to Liquidlogic EYES, we will be able to view information on a child in a social care setting, including their education or early years data, as well as any relevant information about adults who are linked to that child. This gives staff across Children’s Services the best opportunity to offer the right support and services for that child. Improved data accuracy, data accessibility and the reduction in the administration time are just some of the efficiencies we will gain.”
