All these functions and
Push collected data directly into your systems
With eMapper, council users can map content from online forms directly into an XML format which can be pushed into back office systems.
With simple clicks, users can generate a schematically valid file that can be saved to a file location for import or be directly pushed to an API end point.
This function enabled one councils customer services team to build integration to Civica APP, whilst another integrated into IDOX Uniform.
Map content into XML format back office systems understand without code
Map content from user friendly lists to abstract back office codes
Push content automatically to back office locations or directly post it to an API without code
Ability to map multiple files and push to multiple different locations
A platform-based approach to cases and workflow
With eDesigner and OpenProcess, a user can map content from an online form directly into an OpenProcess case without code. This means that all content can be seen in situ the second a form is submitted.
Remove the need to manage tasks within email clients
Transition away from legacy case management applications that simply act as a record of a service request and the associated documents/notes
Enable a shift toward a council-wide workflow and case management solution
Prevent duplication with no code location capture
With eDesigner, your customer service/business users can build online forms which capture location and can show existing issues to prevent duplicate/triplicate requests.
Not only can this be used for any location-based service, it can all be done with NO CODE.
Capture the location within eDesigner-built forms, which automatically kick off processes in OpenProcess and in turn will automatically show in future forms of that type and in OneVu
Enable ALL service requests that require location to be delivered online
Ability to search current location or a specific location
Ability to see from a street view perspective
Capita | Civica | GOV.UK Pay | No code
Increasing revenue by being able to collect payments online is always going to be a good idea. With eDesigner's payment plug-ins, IEG4's customers have built a huge number of forms designed to capture payment prior to submission.
The incredible thing is that these online forms are built in customer services/business-focused teams not in the web development team.
This is possible because they require no specialist knowledge nor any code at all.
Capture payments and fully integrate to your payment system
Options of a fixed price, a custom amount and shopping basket are built-in
Using conditional logic, users can automatically determine the amount to be paid
Details of the fund code / payment reference / form reference is passed to the accounts receivable side of things to enable reconciliation
An email receipt can be set up to be sent automatically when payments go through
Literally takes minutes to set up
Intelligence you control
eDesigner has the ability to show/hide content or pages based upon previous responses. This is called conditional logic. This means that form lengths can be decreased dramatically.
The more conditional logic is used, the more likely a person is only seeing questions they really need to see/complete, which means they are more likely to use the form.
With our simple-to-use rules designer you are able to add conditional logic quickly and easily with no code. Some of the most incredible forms our customers have built have been done from within customer services. E.g. a House of Multiple Occupation Licence form at the Borough of King's Lynn and West Norfolk Council.
Easy to add conditional rules with the ability to nest rules infinitely. I.e. if this and this and this and this and this and this and this is true. Then show this content but hide this content
Ability to add rules that hide entire pages. Which means that you could have a 20 page form but only ever show two pages of it. As an example, building a central point for a user to apply for a licence.
Seamless | Lego Data
Wouldn't it be great if the data you already held about someone in OneVu could be automatically populated into your forms.
Since its inception its been possible to pre-populate the basics like name, address, email, date of birth. But soon we will take this further.
IEG4's innovative 'headless' approach to converting data from back office systems into a common format for reuse online is currently used in OneVu. However, this same data will soon be able to be leveraged in online forms built by you.
For example, lets say that you already know a person's rent arrears/parking fine/benefit overpayment amount from when they authenticated to these departments. It will be possible to pre-populate this kind of data into forms you build without code or technical gobbledegook.
Your forms pre-populated automatically from profile data in Onevu
Your forms able to be pre-populated by data from line of business applications
