Where does Noriaki fit in?
Gives us the freedom to design, deliver and analyse surveys This gives us the ability to measure, opinion, satisfaction, performance Key to delivering value for money, targeted services and self-regulation
Where does Noriaki fit in? With Noriaki we can ask customers –Are they satisfied with services –How they want services to develop –What they think of our plans and what they want us to do We can choose how we ask – face-to- face, online, paper, via the telephone We can “instantly” analyse and report our findings and act on them
Are we there yet? We have so many services and we want to improve. We’re now using (or about to use) Noriaki to check customer views of: –Repairs –How we deal with anti-social behaviour –Our improvement projects –Our customer contact centre –Benefits advice service –The standards of newly let homes
Are we there yet? This will replace old systems, or be completely new for some services We’ve only just started on some and are about to start on others as part of a planned organisational approach to surveys This time next year we’ll have 12 months of performance data, which in most cases we’ll already have acted on. Data will inform all of our work including our activities to involve customers
Are you satisfied now? Its not just about satisfaction – though satisfaction is big on the agenda now We’ve already used Noriaki to find out views on our involvement strategy and policy and changed them as a result We’re using Noriaki to find out what people think of their Neighbourhoods so that we can regenerate them And we have other ideas...
Are you satisfied now? We want to use Noriaki to measure the impact, benefit, cost effectiveness and value for money of our involvement activity We’re talking to UIC about some small developments to help us do this We’ll be surveying ourselves as we go, about what we’re doing, its cost and who we’ve involved....
Are you satisfied now?
And finally... Another housing trust in Fallowfield converting these (once beautiful) council homes into something poncey
