Significant advancements in technology, along with the recent global pandemic, have pushed businesses and organisations to undergo digital transformation in order to keep up.
Digital transformation is the adoption of data-driven innovation and modern-day automation practises to help companies deliver high-quality, efficient and streamlined services for all. In other words, it’s integrating more digital applications, processes and platforms to improve operations for the benefit of everyone.
However, digital transformation is not exclusive to the corporate world.
Today, governments and public sector organisations also undergo digital transformation to streamline their processes, boost productivity and improve service delivery too.
Read on to see how digital transformation empowers governments to become more efficient, cost-effective and accommodating to the needs of their citizens.
What are the benefits of digital transformation for governments?
The ultimate goal of governments and the public sector involves maintaining public trust, administering public services and delivering comprehensive support.
As all of our communities are quite proficient with the internet and are accustomed to interacting online or using technology, digital transformation allows governments to provide their services in a more efficient and transparent way.
Here are the advantages digital transformation offers to public offices:
- Digital transformation simplifies government processes.
Governments can eliminate unnecessary manual processes that take hours to complete by optimising digital technology. Through the capabilities of artificial intelligence, automation and cloud solutions, people don’t have to waste time standing in long lines, use manual processes or have physical copies of documents.
- With digital transformation, governments become more responsive and easier to reach.
Nowadays, governments can rely on innovative platforms, mobile apps, chatbots and social media to immediately address people’s queries and concerns live. The digitalisation of services on a government website can also allow citizens to get the information or records they need, quickly and conveniently.
- Digital transformation increases the productivity levels of government employees.
The internal efficiencies created by digital transformation allow government staff to work with more speed and accuracy. As more routine processes and repetitive tasks become automated and digitalised, they can start focusing on other important projects and attend to people’s urgent demands.
- Digital transformation enables governments to meet citizens’ expectations.
With digital transformation, governments can process transactions at people’s own convenience. Advanced technology solutions can also enable the public sector to track previous engagements, allowing them to provide more tailored reports and personalised services to their citizens.
- Digital transformation facilitates collaboration.
Digital technology enables government offices to seamlessly work together, even in remote setups. With a feedback survey that is accessible online or via mobile app, people can also be more involved in decision-making, problem-solving and policy setting.
How can digital transformation be effectively implemented?
For digital transformation to be seamless, governments must find the right technology solutions that add value to their organisational structures, service designs, work processes, systems and culture.
With growing trends and evolving expectations in service delivery, this can be difficult to accomplish.
