Creating an Effective Citizen Experience Management System

Governments of all sizes are trying to improve citizens’ customer experience to enhance community satisfaction, increase efficiency with delivering services, and boost the effectiveness of government offices to reach their stated goals.

When governments view citizens as “customers” and focus on their needs and satisfaction,  innovative citizen experience management systems can be enacted. These systems not only improve citizen satisfaction with their community, but they also help government offices run more efficiently and effectively.

Government leaders who want to make a triple value impact–bolstering customer satisfaction, improving efficiency, and enhancing their mission in the community–increasingly focus on citizen experience management.

Regardless of your community’s population, municipal governments need to provide an array of services to their community. Fortunately, technology offers governments practical tools for communicating with citizens.

Qless offers queue management and appointment scheduling systems that improve your citizen experience management processes by eliminating the need to wait in line. Qless integrates into a government office’s website and makes it easy for citizens to connect with officials and employees.

Here are four tips to enhance the citizen experience management process and boost community satisfaction with your government office.

1. User-Friendly Online Offerings

From a big city to a small town, one thing everyone agrees on is that they don’t enjoy waiting in line. Whether that’s to pay property taxes, register children for school, or file for a building permit, when you incorporate a citizen experience management system on your government’s website, it allows people to find the information they need.

2. Using Technology to Provide Services

Technology can significantly improve the quality of communications between government offices and citizens. Instead of spending hours on hold waiting to connect with a high-volume department (such as motor vehicles, unemployment, or airport security), technology such as Qless can be used to enter a virtual queue, then go on with your life. A text message or phone call will let you know when it’s time to connect.

3. Promoting Inclusivity and Diversity

Each person in your community will have different preferences and expectations for connecting with government offices. It may be by a laptop, a smartphone or tablet, or via SMS text messaging. Technology solutions that easily integrate into your government office’s website or are available as an app are easy to use and appealing to busy residents who need to access information outside of standard business hours.

4. Get Routine Feedback

Most government officials would prefer to have satisfied citizens, and the best way to solicit feedback about services, policies, budgets, and proposals is through surveys. Citizen experience management systems like Qless can easily send short SMS text surveys to collect feedback, which allows government offices to make changes or initiate contact with the dissatisfied individual.
