Intake flow for streamlined customer interactions

This phase encompasses the generation of essential records (Service user – Contact/Organisation, Enquiry, and Service), punctuated by several assessment and eligibility checks in between.

Service flow for easier service management

  • Streamline your process from the creation of Services to Document Generation. Manage discrete and ongoing services through the Service Delivery functionalities, simplifying the opening, closing and maintenance of service files. Ensure security protocols are in place through the Information Barrier tool, ensuring utmost confidentiality of confidential data.​

Project and project service for efficient project handling ​​
