Public sector BPS
The public sector faces huge pressures as it seeks out new ways of delivering public services that will meet the Government’s twin aims of cost-cutting and making citizens’ lives easier and better. Dynamic and lasting customer-centric change is needed, but dealing with legacy systems, the need to digitise and the introduction of self-service & ‘channel shift’ all make the challenge even greater.
Atos Business Process Services (BPS) for the Public Sector operates in a truly customer-centric manner, putting our government department clients – and their customers (the citizens themselves) – at the heart of everything we do. We actively seek out partnerships with departments where we can look for and collaborate on mutually positive outcomes – higher levels of citizen engagement and satisfaction, together with back-office savings and efficiencies – and share the risk.
By going digital by default, the government could save between £1.7 and £1.8 billion each year.*

“We had huge expectations. A complete overhaul of our operations bringing us into the 21st century with one of the best equipped operations in the UK financial services market. The level and complexity of the change was much greater than we anticipated at the outset but we have done it. Most importantly we have made this quantum shift without any significant customer related problems.”
