PSCSF Member Survey
Loads of useful stuff in this week’s newsletter and with the influx of new members joining us, many from government organisations from across the globe, we will be looking to start a new feature each week where we “introduce” a PSCSF member to the rest of the community, identify his/her objectives and see if we can start to network different skillsets and common objectives.
First of all, congratulations to Buckinghamshire CC’s Customer Service Team who have acquired the “golden fleece” of Customer Service awards, the Customer Service Excellent Standard, read more in the news……..
Stuffwise, we’ve got the write-up from the inaugural PSCSF networking breakfast held at the top of the BT Tower, some useful output from Petar Balac and his team at Nuneaton & Bedworth Council around their ICT review process, some very useful additional resources in the Channel Shift & Self Service event section plus a video produced by Dale & Valley Housing Association in the North East on their use of TellyTalk technology.
Our Associate spotlight this week falls on Astun Technology, the technology partner involved in South Tyneside’s award winning Channel Shift programme.
Finally, we’re after a couple of minutes of your time to fill in the PSCSF Members Survey. Your input will shape the content and offline activity for the next 12 months so to make PSCSF as relevant to your role and objectives as possible, have your say.

Customer Services & Contact Centre functions critical to the re-invention of Local Government
The write-up of the inaugural PSCSF networking meeting which was hosted by BT at the top of the BT Tower. 20 Senior Customer Service & Contact Centre Managers met to discuss the current issues facing them and their organisations.
The PSCSF Public Sector Channel Shift & Self Service Forum: Event Resources
If you missed the presentations and supporting material from our Channel Shift & Self Service Forum that we ran in London on 18th May, you can access them all plus additional info from Looking Local on the North Lincolnshire Homes Digi TV service and some interesting case studies from SiteImprove.
Low Cost Local Service Delivery in Action:- Tellytalk in the Dale and Valley Housing Association
Very interesting video made by Dale & Valley Housing on their use of TellyTalk technology.
TellyTalk is a mediated, transactional service aimed at all customers, particularly the elderly and vulnerable. It enables organisations to centralise the delivery of their community focused face-to-face strategy, reduce the number of front line buildings, eliminate the need for an Outreach service
and bring in partner organisations in Central and Local Government and the voluntary sector.
Nuneaton & Bedworth BC – Information Technology & Communications Review Values
At a recent meeting with Nuneaton & Bedworth BC, I was shown some of the work that was taking place with regards to a review of their Information Technology & Communications service. Brainstorming sessions with regards to what stops people doing their jobs, what the “customer” wants and core values had been carried out and the good people @ Nuneaton & Bedworth were happy for us to share this with you as a “starter for 10″for any reviews that you might carry out

Associate Spotlight: Astun Technology
Police and Local Authorities are looking for effective software solutions to cut costs, transform processes, improve operational efficiency and enhance service delivery.
Astun Technology’s iShare data integration and publishing platform enables organisations to make the most of their own data, extracting it, transforming it and publishing it both internally and externally.
It can serve call centres via systems integration and citizens via the web with a rich mix of information and maps while delivering real savings through avoidable contact and transactional services.
For more on the innovation led Astun Technology plus the case study on South Tyneside’s award winning Channel Shift programme, go to: http://www.pscsf.org.uk/?p=1081
