Outreach enables a range of “channel shift” digital services, compliant with both the UK Government’s Digital by Default Service Standards and HMG’s Security Policy Framework.
The solution supports digital interactions that take place between customers, organisations, citizens and businesses, and as a result its technology doesn’t treat ‘external users’ as arms-length endpoints in a process; everything that Outreach can do is designed to enable all parties to work together to get jobs done across organisational boundaries.
