Enable your users to rapidly deliver services online
IEG4’s eDesigner with Local Gov as a Platform enables business-users to build and deploy intelligent online forms rapidly, add custom-built rules and integration to existing systems, and connect online forms to payment systems without code (No Code). Access to a library of 250+ forms comes with eDesigner and created forms can be shared between authorities.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Insight to report and respond to channel shift
