The vision

The Vision

“Services that are so good people will prefer to use them, while ensuring that those who are not able to go online are given the support they need to do so.”

What does that mean?

  • Q. Deploy Web forms?

  • Q. Self Service enable the CRM?

  • Q. Applications Vendors web portals?

  • Q. IOS / Android App?

  • Q. Contact Forms and Return Calls?

  • Q. Deploy Live Chat?

A. No!

Problems with old processes

Problems with Old Processes

  • High volumes of phone calls and face to face activity

  • Labour intensive

  • Website informational, not transactional

  • Services only accessible 9 till 5

  • Manual Records and Scheduling

  • Manual submission of documents and postage

  • “Stop Starts” in the process

  • No customer progression updates

  • No frontline and joined up intelligence

  • Low citizen perception of the council’s front door

  • An IOS app that is not used

Exemplar processes

Exemplar Processes

Focussing organisational thinking on design and how citizens expect to transact

  • DVLA Car Tax – End to end process, including verification and evidence checking, and elimination of original documents / signatures

  • Asda Home Delivery – Inventory of goodsand services, shopping basket, payment and delivery slot booking

  • Amazon Online Shopping - catalogue, basket, payment and customer feedback / community

Digital by default standards

Digital by Default Standards

  • Automation, Self Service and End to End processes NOT simply providing web-forms actioned by back office

  • Designed for Mobile Processes accessible and usable on any mobile device

  • Elimination of “Dual Key-in” Information gathered from self service processes must be automatically populated into the back-office systems, and known details about customers self populated to current and future transactions

  • Processes should be intelligent &… provide conditional interrogation and adaptive process flows (only ask what we need to)

  • Automated Verification Checking Where supplementary evidence is required, these should be made electronically, either by image attachment / upload, verification with back office systems, or by Risk Based software systems.

  • Underpinned by clear corporate governance

Avoiding digital by deception

Avoiding “Digital by Deception”

  • “Submit form and someone will contact you”

  • “Print this form out, sign it, then mail it to us”

  • “Post original copies of your documents to us”

  • Dual entry (manual input of forms)

  • “Digital Facades” to old webpages

  • Web enabling as-is processes

  • Like for Like digitising of a physical form

  • Dominance of Informational over Transactional

  • “Nearly Digital” standards for processes not DbyD at launch

Processes with the greatest impact

Processes with the Greatest Impact

  • Benefits – Claim and Claim Progress

Critical success factors

Critical Success Factors

  • Commitment of resources to single corporate project and solution

  • Clear DbyD Design Standard and Design Authority

  • Business involved in process mapping & redesign around Digital Standards

  • The right people, right supplier, right product

Solution and supplier choice

Solution and Supplier Choice

  • Supplier with shared vision and understanding of DbyD

  • No re-packaged CRMs, patched together web interfaces

  • No “it can’t be done” or “that’s not what other Councilsare doing”

  • No re-branding it “Digital by Design” or “Digital First”

  • No being sold what the suppliers wanted to sell us, or compromising Design Principals

  • A number of big players admitted their product wasn’t up to it.

  • Solution needed to be powerful, affordable, adaptable, easy to deploy…..
