Buckinghamshire County Council aims to cut costs and improve services through a £5.7m five-year contract with software maker SAP and supplier ITNET.
The software and services deal will see the council use the mySAP business suite with applications including workflow, finance, human resources, employee self service and e-procurement.
The deal will be brought together through the council's IT department, ITNET and SAP.
Karen Jones, project manager at the council, explained that ITNET's OneGov business template is being used to build the system.
"This template was one of the reasons we signed the deal with which we expect to save £1m each year through improved efficiency and reductions in administration costs," she said.
The authority will support the infrastructure through its own IT staff after receiving electronic training from SAP. "The biggest challenge for us will be the integration," said Jones.
Martyn Proctor, SAP services director at ITNET, stressed that the council will have support and benefit from a "real partnership".
