Version 1 Appointed as Transformation Delivery Partner for The ExtraCare Charitable Trust

Version 1 is delighted to announce that it has been appointed Transformation Delivery Partner for The ExtraCare Charitable Trust for an initial five years.

The ExtraCare Charitable Trust is a registered charity established in 1988. Its vision is better lives for older people and its mission is creating sustainable communities that provide:

  • homes older people want
  • lifestyles they can enjoy, and
  • care if it’s needed.


Selection Process – Technology Services 3 Framework

Following extensive preparatory work to define the organisation’s digital transformation journey and having selected Microsoft (Dynamics 365) technology as the underlying platform to replace all existing systems where possible, ExtraCare came to market under Lot 4 of the RM6100 Technology Services 3 Framework Agreement.

Working closely with the in-house project and IT support teams, as well as with business users, Version 1 will design and implement ExtraCare’s Microsoft Dynamics 365 solution to consolidate disparate legacy systems, leverage digital technology and optimise the organisation’s performance now and in the future. More than 200 key systems and spreadsheets will be moved to a more strategic enterprise architecture.

Demonstrable Competency and Collaborative Approach

Key to the selection of Version 1 as its transformation delivery partner was the digital transformation specialist’s extensive competency set across the Microsoft portfolio and a demonstrable collaborative approach to business case development, prioritisation and delivery.

Version 1’s UK Sales Director, Conor McColgan commented:

“To be embarking on such a long-term, wholesale transformation together, at the very beginning of this journey is really exciting for Version 1. Combined with our agile working practices, our varied Microsoft Dynamics 365 expertise, award winning platform services, Power Platform and Power BI insights will be truly transformational for ExtraCare.”
