Modern.Gov helps Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service automate time consuming processes

Papers for committee meetings can run to over 200 pages, with agendas changing at the last minute, generating a lot of work and costly printing to tight deadlines. The administrative burden was growing and pressure mounting on the small team. So, in 2015 they secured agreement to procure a fit-for-purpose governance system that would help save time and money.

Steve and his colleagues turned to Civica for a complete governance solution and they haven’t looked back.


  • Automation of time consuming processes
  • Single click to run reports
  • 75% reduction in administration time per meeting.
The time saved is the biggest benefit of using Modern.Gov. Once we click ‘create pack’ it pulls it all together. We can trust the pagination and let the printer do its work. From one day, down to 1 to 2 hours for each meeting is amazing. It has freed up so much time for other tasks, which was much needed.”
