Southend on Sea Borough Council Library

A full library estate upgrade delivering cost-savings

Southend Libraries wanted to upgrade their whole kiosk estate, with the key consideration of providing cost-effective and user-friendly contactless payment facilities and self-service kiosks. 

GWD won the contract based on our commitment to adoption of new technologies, not least out market-leading implementation of the LCF protocol.

Compliant, cost-effective solutions

GWD identified an over-specification on the original tender, so engaging directly with the finance team at Southend, highlighted a more cost-effective solution that met all compliance requirements, including adherence to PCI regulations and P2PE Security. 

By applying our expertise and commitment to value for money services, we secured a cost saving of £700 per kiosk for the council.
