News : Sheffield City Council Modernizes Digital Citizen Engagement with Verint Cloud Solutions

#contactcenterworld, @Verint

Weybridge, UK & Melville, NY, USA, Dec, 2018 -- Verint(R) Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: VRNT), The Customer Engagement Company™, announced that Sheffield City Council is migrating to the cloud, transforming digital customer service for citizens and employees with Verint’s Engagement Management offerings for government and public sector.* The solutions will enable the council to simplify, modernize and automate its approach to further improve digital services for citizens across all channels, including the council’s customer portal, online forms, social media and web chat.

Upon launch, Verint’s digital engagement platform can help the Council provide simpler, better service to citizens and staff across a range of service areas—including Customer Services (e.g. contact centre and face to face interactions, and complaint management), Housing (e.g. balance checks), Environmental Services (e.g. graffiti reporting), Roads and Highways (e.g. reporting a faulty streetlight) and Human Resources (e.g. payroll query)—with automated integrations between the Verint solution and the Council’s various delivery systems.

Citizens will be able to use the Sheffield City Council website to initiate information and service requests which will be managed through the Verint solution to provide the Council with enhanced self-service capabilities. Employees will also be better supported in both front-office and back-office delivery functions with the provision of a simplified modern user interface and automated access to information. This will improve both citizen and employee access to the council’s services as well as optimising processing and administrative tasks.

Paul Taylor, Head of Customer Services at Sheffield City Council, says, "Our customer service, housing and human resources teams do more than answer simple requests over the phone, they also coach citizens through more complex enquiries across a variety of channels. At the same time, our citizens want to be able to access information through an easy-to-use, digital platform, and Verint will help us achieve this. Through our digital engagement strategy, the council aims to create operational efficiencies and cost efficiencies by simplifying and modernising service delivery whilst providing first-class service for our citizens across their channels of choice."

Sheffield City Council has been a Verint customer for many years and the partnership is now building on its successes to date. The Council will first implement and deploy the new solution for 1,000 employees working within Customer Services, Housing and Human Resources, with plans to extend the same level of citizen access and service improvement across a wide range of services offered by the Council.

"The Council’s vision is to fully exploit digital technology to improve outcomes across the whole organisation and its delivery partners. As such, the Council has adopted a strategic approach to their digital program and is therefore becoming well-positioned to deliver better outcomes—not only for citizens but also employees—while increasing efficiencies and reducing costs," says Verint’s David Moody, vice president and general manager, government and public sector. "The Council is responding to its citizens’ preference to connect digitally, access and manage their services through an innovative, modern portal, and is providing its employees with an improved and intuitive desktop solution to engage citizens more effectively across all channels."
