Northern Ambulance Alliance procures Civica’s Tranman software

The Northern Ambulance Association (NAA) has agreed a five-year contract for Civica’s fleet management software, Tranman.

It will replace existing fleet management systems and aims to deliver more efficient data capture and analysis.

It is the first time NAA – an alliance between North West Ambulance Service (NWAS), Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) and North East Ambulance Service (NEAS).

The trusts have joined forces with the objective of identifying and developing opportunities for joint efficiencies and innovation.

East Midlands Ambulance Service is also an associate member of the NAA.

This is the very first time a collaborative procurement has been undertaken by the NAA, an alliance between North West Ambulance Service (NWAS), Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) and North East Ambulance Service (NEAS).

The trusts have joined forces with the objective of identifying and developing opportunities for joint efficiencies and innovation. East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) is also an associate member of the NAA.

Neil Maher, assistant director of estates and fleet at NWAS said: “There have been significant savings achieved in the procurement of this system, however we see the real value of it as a long-term investment for the three trusts in terms of future operating costs, process redesign, organisational learning, fleet quality, and the ability to make better informed decisions for future fleet procurements.”

The joint procurement operation meant one tendering process was carried out instead of three, one lot of set-up costs were required across the three trusts, while one common system will help drive efficiencies within the ambulance fleet as a whole.
