Applying old practices to new thinking is making digital too difficult to deliver at the same time as doing the day job. You want to accelerate digital transformation and break free from legacy infrastructure. But how?

Low-code brings scale and speed to digital processes and development inside local government. Leading to simpler, faster digital excellence in the public sector. Being citizen-centric by default and digital by design has never been more achievable in this new era of innovation.

There are a large number of local authorities who are already delivering a Local Government as a Platform strategy using low-code platforms and developing and sharing apps around the following service areas:

  • Waste & Recycling
  • Covid-19
  • Highways
  • Customer Portals
  • Complaints/FOI/SAR

The benefits that Local Gov can realise by using low-code include:

  • Agile delivery in weeks not months
  • Improved customer satisfaction
  • Faster response times
  • Continuous improvement
  • Saving money removing expensive point solutions
  • Getting rid of “Ghost IT” projects
  • Developing & influencing an Agile organisational culture
