"It got a huge amount of interest at our recent technology open day!"
All of the representatives from our public sector and government departments were thrilled with it and I have a list of demonstration requests as long as my arm now. I anticipate the Wacom Clipboard will be an essential part of data collection in future.
Although many government services now exist online, government departments have struggled to manage more complicated programmes. They have been slow to find ways to improve complex systems and processes that support public services.
The public sector has long been viewed as an environment where low levels of innovation is prevalent, falling behind private sector technological developments. The National Audit Office (NAO) has reported that government has found it difficult to get transformation right.
In order to become ‘digital by default’, the NAO states that government must:
Co-ordinate digital activity
Transform the way people access government information by using digital technology to deliver services that put the user first
Give people the smartest and most cost-effective services possible
As we move towards being a ‘smartphone state’, people expect the government to deliver public services effectively - and at speed. This makes the challenge to progress government’s digital agenda all the more daunting.
"And it's not just about access to data, it's about data collection too!"
One way to navigate these challenges is the biometric signature. As obtaining signatures is such a common necessity in government business, the biometric signature can accelerate smarter working throughout many departments.
Signatures may be required through a wide range of public sector organisations including:
outpatients and medical records
statements from police
internal reports and forms
HR and procurement
any form of paper transactions
The Wacom Clipboard is a new and radical innovation in service delivery. Enabling biometric signature technology, the Wacom Clipboard also provides government with the ability to create paper and digital forms, digitally capturing any information written on the electronic clipboard.
The Wacom Clipboard addresses government challenges to labour-intensive processes, eliminating paper-heavy processes ...
The Wacom Clipboard has many key features including custom authoring tools which makes it easy to lay out forms documents and create a corresponding digital version. The barcode scanner integrated into the Clipboard helps automatically sync the paper form with its digital version.
Organisations will benefit from archiving and accessing digital documents and customers can still fill out familiar paper forms (A4 or letter size) on the electronic clipboard Secure, biometric eSignatures can be included with the digital document.
At CMC, we understand where the synergies between sectors lie, and we can help our clients leverage these to move towards a better operating model.
