Meritec has donated £5000 to Airedale Hospital in Keighley to help kit out their wellbeing rooms with a lorry full of goods, including televisions and microwaves.

More and more organisations of all sizes have realised the benefits that can be gained from implementing an organisation-wide digital platform.  From self-service portals that allow your customers to access your services 24/7/365 from anywhere in the world, to advanced workflows and end-to-end digital processes, Digital Platforms have become an integral part of the way that forward-thinking Organisations deliver their services to a customer base that increasingly expects to be able to interact via digital channels.

Back in 2019, before the words "pandemic", "vaccine" and "lockdown" were at the forefront of everyone's mind, Meritec won a contract with Derbyshire Dales District Council to help them deliver on their ambitious Digital Transformation aspirations. This was to be achieved by leveraging Meritec’s own unique Digital Platform and associated pre-built solutions.

After being awarded the contract, the Council highlighted that Meritec's experience in delivering similar complex projects (using our range of Digital Solutions), our friendly & easy to work with team, plus our proven partnership approach were key factors in their decision to award Meritec the contract.

Modern technologies are providing a huge opportunity in the public sector to migrate from legacy systems. The benefits of such change are measured most especially in terms of dramatically reduced costs, raised service standards, channel shift and forward flexibility.

Though reducing in scale, there nevertheless remains a huge inventory of legacy systems in public organisations not only in areas such as customer relationship management and many other corporate functions but also in frontline services.

Customer relationship management (CRM) is of enormous significance to the public sector and has been for many years. CRM practice and related computer systems grew rapidly approaching the millennium and was then fuelled by massive investment during the e-government era which followed in the noughties. Customer services units developed apace and have been highly effective in channelling customer contact.
