Streamlining service delivery and empowering citizen self-service

Cloud enabled OPENRevenues eBenefits Forms promote channel shift and optimise operational efficiency, transforming housing benefit and council tax reduction application processes for both the local authority and the citizens it serves.

Citizens and residents of the council can apply for benefit, report changes in their circumstances and access part completed forms anytime, anywhere via a connected device. The citizen’s form and all supporting documents are submitted directly to the local authority’s back office for assessment; improving accuracy and avoiding delays. This significantly accelerates application time, helping local authorities reduce administration and facilitates a better use of resource to improve service delivery.

The Council wanted to make the process of applying online for Council Tax Reduction and Housing Benefit easier for our residents. That’s why we worked closely with our IT provider, Civica, on designing a form that automatically enters the information into our Revenues and Benefits back office system.
