Testimonials

'In Hillingdon we had made significant progress in improving the value for money profile of our passenger transport services, including home to school transport, and were at the stage of reviewing and moving in to the next stage of our programme.  Following an initial discussion with Edge we committed to them undertaking a review/scoping of our progress and future plans.   What became evident very soon was the level of expertise they bring to understanding requirements and opportunities, which were reflected in their recommendations which considerably superseded our medium term financial forecast assumptions. We asked them to build a commercial proposition for us to consider, which would see Edge managing the transformation for us; the result was an impressive and comprehensive proposal, with a very clear profile of benefits realisation plotted along the timeline and resulting in a significantly lower cost operation. They are now working with us to implement those recommendations and are making excellent progress.'

Tony Zaman - Corporate Director, Adult, Children & Young People Services, London Borough of Hillingdon

'EDGE have delivered substantial savings for the Council and that was very welcome, importantly they have also developed our internal teams and ensured that quality and training has improved for our transport suppliers. Particularly pleasing for me is that we have been able to reinvest some of the savings to deliver travel training to a number of our children with special needs which will have a huge impact on their daily lives. The whole EDGE package has worked really well for us.'

Andrew Thomas, Head of Education & Commissioning, Neath Port Talbot Council

'At Leicester City Council we had set ourselves challenging efficiency targets both in terms of the size of our fleet and the significant costs involved in running it. We appointed EDGE public solutions to implement the programme of changes and to deliver the required budget reductions. From the outset through overhauling our project governance and thereafter throughout the process of delivering difficult changes I have been impressed by the professionalism and expertise EDGE have provided, they have worked alongside our Officers to ensure that this programme has been delivered and that our ambitions have been achieved.'

Frank Jordan, Strategic Director City Development & Neighbourhoods, Leicester City Council
