End to end Blue Badge expertise
Our software and services provide end to end support for busy Blue Badge teams. We can help you transform customer service and stay on track while tackling increased applications, staff holidays and more.
Full range of support
We’ve delivered highly efficient Blue Badge services for seven years. This means our team is uniquely placed to provide everything from on-demand processing to fully managed services.
In 2017, Lincolnshire Council called on us for urgent support when they lost their PSN connection. We were able to start processing applications within four hours.
We also deliver a fully managed service for Birmingham City Council. Making use of our leading CMS, this multi-channel service has helped them to transform how they work, speeding up processing and reducing their costs by 47%. We’re providing a managed service for the London Borough of Redbridge too, as they were struggling to replace an experienced in-house team.
No two councils are alike, and we understand the importance of local policies and procedures. Our team works with you to understand your processes and standards so that we can work to high degrees of accuracy, fast.
We can help with:
- Handling all initial queries through a local-code number and dedicated email
- All forms of data entry and processing, including applications
- Requesting missing information or documentation
- Processing all types of documents, whether paper or electronic
- Desktop assessments in line with your procedures
- Managing credit and debit card payments
“The speed with which [NEC] were able to assist with our 'out of the blue' request was amazing and really helped us maintain the service.”
~ Lauren Grosvenor, Team Leader, Lincolnshire County Council
