  • 10. Review of Directgov
    • Public services should be delivered online or by
    • other digital means. The report, and the
    • Government’s initial response, argues for a
    • channel shift that will increasingly see public
    • services provided digitally ‘by default’
    • Revolution not evolution

  • 11. Letter from Senior Building Control Officer Warwick DC
    • ...................................
    • Should you wish to discuss the current situation
    • of your application or to arrange a
    • progress/completion discussion inspection, please
    • telephone or email me. Alternatively you can
    • book an inspection online using the Building

  • 16. A to Z entry for ‘Building regulations’ How to build up website take-up
  • 17. Lessons to learn from Warwick DC example
    • Communications do not assume online as default
    • Terminology inconsistent (letter cf website) – is it ‘building control’ or ‘building regulations’?
    • Not easy to find transaction
    • Site search does not throw up ‘inspection’
    • Search register via full address, not postcode
    • None, perhaps, are major errors, but whole
    • experience is rather confusing

  • 26. Is channel shift a corporate objective?
    • Only in a very few cases, it seems
    • Another test is ability to measure impact
    How to build up website take-up
  • 27. Can your council report impact of channel shift? How to build up website take-up
  • 28. Can your council report impact of channel shift?
    • In November we invited councils for information
    • about customer contacts via phone or face-to-
    • face, esp breakdown by main service areas.
    • Only 12 out of 19 provided any information about both these channels
    • In only four cases were categories ‘mostly the same’
    • So, where data collection exists, it is done in silos!
    How to build up website take-up
  • 29. Example of strong corporate commitment to all service managers
    • … how will we increase self-service?
    • It’s built into our future shape design
    • We will charge fairly and recover costs
    • It will be easier to self-serve
    • It will often be cheaper
    • We will heavily market self-service (helping us help you)
    • Local face-to-face customer service centres will help people make the move to self-service

  • 30. Q4 What was your main purpose for coming to the website today?
    • Make a payment 4.00%
    • Make a booking 1.74%
    • Report a problem 2.45%
    • Request a service 3.95%
    • Make an application 4.33%
    • Find information 58.73%
    • Just browsing 13.13%
    • Other 11.67%
  • 31. Q4 What was your main purpose for coming to the website today?
    • Find information 58.73%
    • 3 .5x
    • Complete a transaction 16.47%
    • Just browsing 13.13%
    • Other 11.67%
    • So, focus as much on information requests as
    • on services
  • 32. Lessons from survey into online services for schools (DfE)
    • Overall rating of information
    • about schools
    • The exceptions (very good):
    • Central Bedfordshire
    • Kingston
    • Leicester City
    • North Yorkshire CC
    • Solihull MBC
    • Surrey CC
    • Tameside MBC

  • 33. Lessons from survey into online services for schools (DfE)
    • Correlations between success and
    • promotion on home page
    • ease of finding from home page
    • overall provision of information
    • This suggests poor understanding of what is
    • important in terms of achieving efficiency
    How to build up website take-up
  • 34. Better connected reviewer comments
    • Appeals
    • Making an appeal after an
    • application is probably a pretty
    • regular thing where schools get
    • oversubscribed. I was amazed
    • at how often the appeals
    • content (when present!) was in
    • a different part of the education
    • section rather than grouped
    • with admissions information
    • Home page promotion
    • This is crucial in my opinion. If
    • there was no home page link
    • very often I struggled to find
    • information about admissions,
    • even via navigation. Given that
    • we’re likely to be more patient
    • than parents, this underlines
    • the need for effective home
    • page promotion
    How to build up website take-up
  • 35. In conclusion
    • Design of the customer experience is critical
    • People’s behaviours do change over time
    • Promotion of the online service also matters
    • Focus on information as well as the transaction
    • Most important of all,
    • Corporate commitment is now essential
