The collaboration will surface the opportunity for HGS UK to provide comprehensive, multichannel support for public users of GDS’s GOV.UK One Login services. As a strategic partner, HGS brings along an extensive track record of successful implementation of critical government solutions across the globe. HGS brings a wealth of digital capability to support our agents including single-pane-of-glass across channels for voice, webchat, webform, social, and intelligent deflection through conversational AI whilst monitoring interaction trends and alerts through speech / text analytics.
Rachel Tsang, Deputy Director for the Digital Identity Programme at GDS said, “We are pleased to announce a partnership with HGS to supply a contact centre for our users. By doing this, we will be able to provide our users with great customer support, at the point of need, when they are accessing GOV.UK One Login. Having these services in place will allow us to focus on all our customers, including those with low digital skills.”
