Standard Self Service Processing Model WEB AUTO PHONE APP Roads Social Work Waste etc. Customer accesses a variety of self service channels to log a service request Information is logged on council’s CRM and then passed onto services Or it is passed directly to services for action Either way this is the primary zone of opportunity for system & process integration.
