Streamlined Processes And Shared Services For Central Government Organisations Aiming To Create Efficiencies
Central government bodies face ongoing operational and commercial challenges. Most notably, as part of austerity measures in the last decade they now have very limited money to spend, and must do more with less. They also face a clear need to make use of shared services – through which different departments call on the same administrative functions to benefit from economies of scale and improved commercial models.
In this climate, many central government bodies are turning to Arvato’s innovative business process outsourcing, shared services, and digital transformation expertise as they look to streamline processes and maintain high quality services. Our shared service centre, which is accredited to the same level as government, is already providing standardised back-office services for the Department for Transport (DfT) and its family of executive agencies for the first time in the department’s history.
Your Challenges. Our Solutions.
Maintaining Service Levels Despite Budget Cuts
Tightening budgets mean organisatations have no choice but to achieve more with less resources. Many are turning to our shared services to centralise processes and use automation to standardise and speed up repetitive activity
Government departments are shifting citizen transactions and staff processes online, to modernise and cut costs. By digitialising as high a proportion as possible, there is a huge potential to optimise and automate services for efficiency.
Privacy & Security
GDPR legislation around management of information means many organisations are turning to our experience and expertise to help them ensure full compliance with data privacy and to bolster their systems’ security.
Process Optimisation & Efficiencies
A key driver of cost-saving is optimising the processes involved in carrying out individual tasks. Arvato’s ProcessAutomate RPA solution, enables organisations to use automation to make manually-intensive tasks rapid and machine-run.
Freeing Up Employees
Limited resources, combined with tougher demands, means each council employee has to maximise their productivity. Automation and shared services help take away manual tasks or standardise processes to enable staff to focus on value-added activities.
