Plymouth City Council
How the council’s digitisation of Revenue & Benefits has transformed the citizen experience
Find out how the partnership between Granicus and Govtech offered the means to Plymouth City Council to address digital deficiencies in Revenues as part of a single council-wide service and automate more than 70% of the Revenue & Benefits transactions. This enabled services to remain operational during the Coronavirus pandemic while freeing up skilled people to deal with the emergency.
“Govtech was ‘a company with a mission’. A mission to help us break out of the silo we were in. The Granicus govService platform was already widely deployed but nobody had previously integrated with our core R&B system in the way they were proposing to do, so we had to have confidence in their abilities. What we found as we went along was that they are experts in the field in which they practice, Revenues and Benefits automation. Govtech’s approach was to present themselves as good problem solvers. And I was particularly struck by the focus they placed on “value”; that what they are doing, the problems they are solving, must generate a return that we can measure.”
