We estimate Modern.Gov has reduced admin time on committees / reports by 50-70%. By giving us the opportunity to offer more flexible paperless options, Modern.Gov has also been a key part of our objective to at least halve our paper consumption by 2020. As a Council, we want to be more efficient, more productive and more modern. Modern.Gov is an extremely useful tool in helping Local Councils to modernise their way of working.
