Online forms have become the state-of-the-art way to get in touch with customers and citizens. The necessary information (metadata and documents) can be taken directly from an e-form or e-request for further processing without media discontinuity. Theme-related processes can be started easily and the application data is displayed in the system as subject data without programming. Using simple administration, the inbound data can be assigned in the e-file and conditions can be defined in the workflow.
The use of smart home devices as voice assistants for the communication between citizens and the authorities is an innovative addition to electronic forms. Filing applications and querying the status in administrative procedures becomes much simpler through this. You, too, can also use the new technical possibilities as an additional communication channel to add a new dimension to the communication with your citizens.
Authorities have to send a large number of letters and documents, resulting in high postage costs. At the same time, they face the challenge of further consolidating their budgets and improving their services in the sense of a modern service provider. With electronic delivery, it is possible to meet those requirements. Public authorities benefit from more efficient processes and lower costs, while private individuals and companies have convenient access to electronically delivered documents on a PC, tablet or smartphone.
The combination of e-file and e-delivery enables end-to-end e-government from application to delivery. Sending letters electronically and physically is easier, faster, safer and cheaper. Shipments are primarily sent electronically. If undeliverable by electronic means, letters are delivered fully automatically by post. The entire delivery process is fully documented and is verifiable and legally valid in accordance with the current legal provisions.
Sharing knowledge and experience within the organisation is of central importance also for the authorities. Use of this “social capital”, however, does not a matter of course. There is still big potential for targeted knowledge management and interactive cooperation in the European area. Central communications platforms enable quicker access to knowledge, better project collaboration and communication, and the increase of successful innovations.
Acta Nova offers the ideal basis for e-collaboration. The input of information from everyone who works together on a given subject can be recorded in a structured way. Targeted workflow management makes the work process transparent and ensures completion on time as well as integrated documentation. Moreover, it serves as the central knowledge database by virtue of its comprehensive research possibilities and legally compliant archiving.
Decision-makers often have full calendars and spend a large part of their time in meetings. It is therefore important to organize them professionally and productively. The module "Session Service" enables efficient preparation, conducting, follow-up and administration of meetings in public authorities such as municipalities, city administrations, state parliaments or universities.
The Session Services module provides optimum support for sending session invitations, interdisciplinary cooperation between various departments and the automated creation of session templates. The session management can be individually adapted according to requirements. Processes such as the creation of the agenda, the processing of individual files and processes or the assignment of meeting documents can be handled efficiently using a clear object structure.
All of these citizen services are available to you with Acta Nova, the comprehensive overall solution for the efficient management of business cases and processes. With included document and workflow management, Acta Nova simplifies the structured handling of business cases and reproduces all stages in a comprehensible manner.
