Testimonials

'The whole partnership had a feel good factor, with excellent governance and milestones hit and exceeded. The on-site team provided by EDGE was extremely competent and knowledgeable as well as being flexible in their approach. The project was resourced at a level that allowed the early delivery and over achievement of the original targets, and didn’t stop there, with the additional delivery of further initiatives and improvements in the closing months.'

Dave Wilkinson, Assistant Director - Trading Services and Assets, Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council

'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bring to understanding requirements and opportunities, which were reflected in their recommendations which considerably superseded our medium term financial forecast assumptions.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

'We had an ambition to reduce the overall cost of our transport whilst maintaining service and quality. EDGE public solutions have provided us with the expertise, additional capacity and underwritten the delivery of the savings necessary to realise that ambition.'
