Councils have always been faced with change – this time around the scale is even larger and today’s challenge is driving major efforts at redesigning an digitising services, introducing new ways of working and driving new forms of service delivery.
Digital First believes that it is essentially to create an integrated digital strategy to understand the scale of investment needed, the priorities for technology transformation and identify the changes to create a better customer experience at lower cost.
Our philosophy is ‘Digital by Choice’ – a customer experience that feels the natural ways to interact with councils – rather like a typical experience people have at home with Amazon or eBay, Airbnb or Uber.
