Across Europe municipalities are facing a wide range of challenges as businesses and citizens demand better, more efficient and more flexible services. Municipalities are working hard to become more customer-driven, and to change how they deliver services to respond better to their customers’ demands.
This guide has been produced the Smart Cities project to show what municipalities need to do to establish a customer contact centre. It includes many practical examples and case studies highlighting the experiences of staff in seven municipalities from across the North Sea region. The guide was written by people who are currently working to improve customer services in their municipalities, and it is written for the growing number of people who want to do the same.
