Improved Access to Services via Channel Shift
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
To significantly lower costs & protect front line services
To improve the quality and availability of services to customers
To facilitate and accelerate business change programs across councils
To support national initiatives and policies for joining up transactions across
government agencies and bodies but comply with legislation
High value transactions will not be put online due to the risk of information falling into the wrong hands
Councils continue to invest in tactical or bespoke authentication solutions for access to specific vendor
solutions that may not align with national initiatives, national security requirements and technology
standards
Potential savings will be lost or jeopardised by this lack of consistency and duplication
The user experience will be inconsistent, further reducing the incentive on customers to migrate to new
channels

Political ‘hot-topic’ – councilors have given statements on the county’s website about renewing bus passes
http://www.hertsdirect.org/services/transtreets/buspass/
Stuart Pile, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport said: “The free bus pass scheme helps
many older people in Hertfordshire remain independent. When a letter comes through your door,
it’s important that you renew your pass at the earliest opportunity, which will ensure you are still
able to benefit from free bus travel after April 2013.
●

”If you know someone who has a free bus pass, please look out for their letter to arrive and help
them with the renewal process if they need it.”
