SmartConnect for local authorities

At Bracknell Forest we have specialist software to manage a smartcard system that is simple to use, versatile and flexible while allowing positive engagement with residents.

SmartConnect provides the leading management system for local authority smartcard schemes. This software allows local authorities a quick and simple way to introduce and begin using smartcards, and manage existing schemes better.

SmartConnect evolved from the National Smartcard Project, and has been tried and tested by multiple users since 2004. Councils as far afield as Cambridge and Caerphilly have already signed up to the SmartConnect software and are enjoying the many benefits it offers.

Bracknell Forest Council makes SmartConnect available to other local authorities for an annual licence fee. There is regular investment in product development. Local authorities can contract directly with Bracknell Forest for a range of smartcard services without the need for a full procurement exercise avoiding the need for a long and expensive tendering process.

We offer SmartConnect options from simple installation and configuration to a fully comprehensive service. Avoid the pitfalls of introducing and managing smartcards in your local authority by contacting us for our simple and easy to use SmartConnect solution.

Bracknell Forest Council’s experts are happy to assist other local authorities with the introduction of smartcards. To see the system in action, please contact the Smartcard team at or telephone 0845 601 1632.
