    • SOCITM 2010: “Tomorrows Public Services Today” Web Improvement & Channel Shift Rhondda Cynon Taf CBC
    • Introductions Leigh Gripton Director of Customer Care & ICT Ceri Evans Service Development Manager (Customer Care)
    • Rhondda Cynon Taf - Context • Unitary Local Authority • 2nd largest in Wales : 14,000 Staff Annual Revenue Budget - £858m • 234,000 Population • 105,000 Households • Spread over 3 Valleys, spans 164sq Miles
    • Strategic Customer Care • Initial 3 year Service Strategy developed in 2005 – “Delivering Better Customer Contact” • Key Council Improvement (WPI), with deliverables under 3 specific themes . . . a) Customers can easily access Council information and services when they need to and receive a quality response based on timeliness, satisfaction and resolution of enquiry. b) Collect information once and use numerous times to the benefit of customers, whilst understanding customer needs and preferences. c) Ensure Customer Care arrangements support strategic collaboration and business development with partners
    • Customer Care in Practice • 1.5m contacts per annum into multi- channel access channels • 24/7 Contact Centre, the Largest in Wales: 800,000 Contacts, further 300,000 LHB. (Customer Satisfaction 98%, Wales 91.5%) • 4 One-Stop-Shops across the 3 Valleys with wide range of partners < 6 miles. (Customer Satisfaction 99%, Wales 95.5%) • One of the first Digital TV Sites in Wales. • Wales “pilot" area in collaboration with Merthyr CBC on “Tell Us Once” project • Services underpinned by Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system
    • A Tactical Switch?
    • A Tactical Switch? The Website was realigned to Customer Care in 2008 Why… • To form part of the Council’s Customer Improvement Programme • Manage & Measure as a “Customer Access Channel” as opposed to a technical resource and priority. Public appetite is increasing! • Exploit embedded Business Processes & CRM System benefits • Indentify Demand Points, and appropriate 24/ 7 “e” services • Form part of Customer Information suite: Single View of the Customer • View to shift Services to Lower Unit and Transactional Costs Wales Average: Web £0.17, Tel 2.43, Face-to-Face £5.47
    • Baseline Position • Aging Technical Architecture: CMS - Search engine, Lack of GIS. • Web Structure in need of “Refresh” - Page Design, Navigation, A-to-Z. • Site was Information based, with little or no Transactional Services. • An “Unfriendly” Web Address • Minimal or little Baseline Customer Management Information • Site tended to be Service, not Customer lead. • Benchmarking Results Poor (19th in Wales, lower Quartile UK) (Better Connected) • Only 7% of Service pages in Welsh. • 34 Departmental or “silo” sites in existence, a content spread?
    • Key Improvements … • Key Customer insight information collated Informing Improvement Roadmap • Technical Infrastructure updated (CMS, Search Engine, Mapping, Find My…) • New Council Policy & Web Strategy endorsed by the Chief Executive • Navigation, A-to-Z, Search improved– introducing on-line services • Redesign of the whole site, with images, multi-media bringing popular services to the fore • Integration with the Council’s CRM system (customer & properties). • Introduced a shorter Web Address www.rctcbc.gov.uk • Over 60 Self Services options on the site, more on this later . . .
    • The Results • Positive Benchmarking Results. 3rd in Wales, Top Quartile in UK. • Rated as a 3* or Transactional Website • Customer Satisfaction has increased to 79% • First Point Resolution for web Enquiries improved to 75% • Website Accessibility & Compliance: Average 2nd Wales, 34th UK (2009/10 Site-Morse Review) • Site Available – 99.6% (Including planned downtime) • Content volumes improved by 10% each year, Welsh now at 78% (7%) • Usage increased by 18% since 2008. On average, 51,996 Unique Visitors per month (pages viewed 357,983), peaked at 135,181 in January 2010.
    • The Old to the New….
    • The Move to Transactional Services…
    • Can Web Transactions Save Money? The Potential . . . 2009/10 Unit Costs (Per transaction) Channel RCT Wales * SOCITM ** Face-to-Face £4.49 £5.67 £7.40 Telephone £1.47 £2.43 £2.90 Website £0.09 £0.17 £0.32 •Citizen Access Position Statement 2009 ** Channel Value Benchmarking Review 2010 (5 LA’s)
    • Case Study (1) - Bulky Waste Collections Why? • High Volumes 55,000 Customer Requests per annum • 43% of all Environmental Services Calls (2009/10) • Appointment based / Slot booking collection system based on item and location. • Postcode intuitive • Managed via the CRM System (supporting LLPG) and Business Processes already running effectively. • Single View of the Customer • An “end to end” process (deep into the system) . . . • Note this service is currently free to citizens
    • Access Channel Collection Process “End to End” Collection CRM Bulky Waste - Clip

    • Summary of Case Studies Emerging Themes. . . 1. An appetite for transactional web services does exist 2. Telephone remains the most popular channel 3. Experience suggests for “simpler” transactions 4. The “drift” is increasing, from the Telephone to the Web 5. RCT: Telephone £1.47 ‘v’ Web £0.09 6. Drift Volumes since 2008/09 identify 34,005 transactions have moved to self-service channels for these case studies alone, increasing each year between 3% > 9% !
    • How did we “Encourage” Channel Drift 1. Use of consistent shorter URL - www.rctcbc.gov.uk/payments 2. Use of Promotional Images, Home, Landing, Service Pages, Transactional Navigation 3. Exploiting the use of Contact Centre Queue and Out of Hours Call Messaging 4. Pro-active “sign-posting” to the Web via Face-to-Face and Telephone Advisors 5. Animated Video Feeds on Plasma / LCD Screens at One-Stop-Shops. 6. Use of Public Access Kiosks (20 across RCT) 7. News Articles in “FREE” Council Newspaper “Outlook” 8. Pro-active Press Releases to the local media 9. Using key customer insight information, to pro-actively highlight services based on trends (e.g. Seasonal) 11. Previous community website assisted by better equipping the “supply” of ICT in the community, training and the concept of content ownership 12 Pushing Transactional Services through the Search Engine… “Recommended Results” or “Suggestive Search”
    • So, What Next? a) Customer Care – Wales Programme for Improvement • Extend our partnership with the Local Health Board for their “Communications Hub” • Co-location of HMRC “Inland Revenue” at our One4all Centre • Work with Environment Agency to pilot “Flood-line” as one of 4 test areas in Wales • Launch Tell Us Once pilot for Bereavement Services for Wales, with a view to Births and Change of Address next • Pilot integration of our CRM system with key back office applications using a new ‘Middleware’ toolset Note: to realise cash & non-cashable benefits of “channel shift” on- going collaboration with Accountancy colleagues is key
    • So, What Next? b) Remainder of 2010/11 Web Improvements • Opening up Leisure Bookings & Payments to the public • A pilot of on-line School Admissions • Ability to view Planning Applications on-line • For this Winter, a new real-time School closure system • New “Children & Young People” theme for the Website • Ability to view Public Health Inspection ratings for Food Premises (Restaurants, Take-Aways etc) - a scheme known as “Scores on the Doors” • Measure & realise new “drift” benefits for Revs & Bens (Discounts), Leisure Bookings & Pest Control services
