Citizens and businesses have many different ways of contacting municipalities for services, and many municipalities allow customers to use email as a contact channel. However many municipalities often find that they have difficulties in managing the email channel, with customers contacting a range of official and unofficial email addresses, and have difficulties in measuring how successful/efficient/appropriate email is for service delivery and as a point of customer contact.
This report illustrates how the municipality of Groningen has transformed its email handling methods and processes in the context of a wider multi-channel strategy to deliver better and more effective services to its citizens.
This report provides an overview of best practices in the use and handling of email by municipalities, shares lessons from Groningen’s experience in transforming email handling through a case study, and gives an insight into the complexities and uses of the email channel. A glossary and links to further reading and resources are also included.
