Efficiency is especially important when other people’s lives depend on your services. Today’s governments now have the digital tools at their disposal to empower their citizens with intuitive, accessible applications that eliminate the need for paper, manual tasks, and long wait times.
[vimeo 381330094 w=560 h=315] As a species, we’ve endured numerous challenges thanks to empathy and the notion that we must care for each other, especially in times of need. Governments were essentially created to ensure that our limited resources were adequately spent in creating better societies, which includes caring for those in distress and helping them through a rough situation.
Modern-day governments are complex institutions with hundreds of tasks and a short amount of time to complete them, which creates a constant sense of urgency since the well-being of their citizens often times depends on their level of efficiency. In this regard, The Department of Human Services in Victoria, Australia was no exception.
In this video, you’ll learn how the department has succeeded in harnessing digital transformation to become increasingly more effective at resolving people’s crises and delivering the social justice their citizens deserve.
In an interconnected, constantly moving world, reaching thousands—or even millions—of citizens requires governments to go above and beyond traditional media outlets. Providing access to services through mobile applications is therefore essential to guarantee the availability of public services and ensure that citizens have an open channel to communicate their needs and concerns. Furthermore, supporting public employees with flexible mobile tools can empower them to do increasingly more effective field work and become more efficient with their time.
