GovDelivery Helps Public Sector Address Key Components of Recently Announced Government Digital Strategy

New White Paper Helps Government Agencies Move Transactional Communications Online to Drive Efficiencies and Cost Reductions

LONDON, 2013-02-19GovDelivery, a leader in cloud-based communication solutions for government, continues to leverage more than a decade of experience to help facilitate and maximise direct connections between the public sector and citizens. Today, GovDelivery released a new white paper titled “Modernise Transactions with the Public: Digital Delivery of Government Messages & Statements” to provide government agencies with the advice and tools to achieve greater efficiencies and further reduce costs associated with paper-based communications.

Transactional messaging has become a critical requirement within UK public sector organisations. With a significant emphasis on transactional messaging, the Cabinet Office’s recently released Government Digital Strategy lays out actions and requirements for the major government departments, which will inevitably affect all other levels of government. This white paper and GovDelivery’s checklist for the Government Digital Strategy provide public sector agencies with the tools to fulfil many of the actions described in the strategy, often using solutions they may already have in place.

“Staying on top of the extensive list of actions and principles included in the Government Digital Strategy can be daunting, especially given the other responsibilities an organisation is already managing,” said Dave Worsell, Director, Government Solutions at GovDelivery UK. “With our focus on helping our government clients transform government-to-citizen interactions and driving citizen satisfaction while managing budget constraints, the GovDelivery team is uniquely positioned to help our clients meet these requirements. Our new white paper leverages our experience of helping government agencies maximise direct connections with the public, provides a foundation of knowledge around alleviating costs and further increases efficiencies within the organisation.”

Many organisations still post printed documents for regular, one-to-one communications that drive business processes with stakeholders, including things like tax statements, payment instructions and appointment reminders. The new white paper identifies the various costs associated with transactional messages and guides government departments through the process of moving them online to realise significant cost savings. The white paper also shares tips and best practices to help other public sector agencies make this transition and reap the same significant cost savings and efficiencies that GovDelivery clients have achieved by implementing the GovDelivery Transactional Messaging Service (TMS), which is built on a scalable and secure email infrastructure that supports more than 550 government agencies worldwide, including the Driving Standards Agency, Highways Agency, Parliament, Department for Health, and more.
