About us

Govtech, your trusted partner


We help you get much more from digital transformation by providing digital process automation services that are output orientated, aligned to your needs and delivered by experienced Revenues & Benefits practitioners.

Who is Govtech?

Govtech Solutions is a trusted partner for its many UK local authority customers. As experts in digital process automation, we help councils to maximise returns on investments in online services, Customer Experience and Customer Relationship Management systems. Our hosted solutions integrate with all mainstream Revenues and Benefits systems and automate processing of online R&B transactions.

What can Govtech do for me?

We help you achieve more by freeing up skilled resources that are lost to manual checking and processing. As budgets tighten, demand grows and resources are stretched thinner, you’re trying to do more with less. Our end-to-end content capture, validation, back-office integration and digital process automation services help you to bridge the gap.

So why choose Govtech?

Our specialist team are revenues and benefits practitioners who understand the challenges and choices you face. Our customers see us as an extension to their team, always available and willing to help.

Our solutions are trusted to automate over 10 million digital transactions per annum by councils who collectively manage 4.5 million chargeable dwellings and collect over £10 Billion per annum in Council Tax and Business Rates income.

When it comes to solving your problems, it’s our culture and working practices that give us the edge.

Govtech-listen

We listen

We take time to understand your council’s specific needs, challenges and objectives. We don’t speculate or seek to act before we understand. We configure our services to meet the specific business outcomes you’ve asked us to deliver for you, in the most efficient way.

Govtech-work-together

We work together

Partnering is key to how we work. It’s a two-way relationship which doesn’t end up with you just talking to a Help Desk. Once you go live, our engagement deepens as we monitor performance, ensure your SLAs are attained and seek ways to enhance and optimise automation so that you can achieve more.

Govtech-is-reliable

We are reliable

Integrity and transparency are at the heart of our ethos. Our solutions deliver exactly what we promise they will. No risk, no worry, completely predictable results, supported by automation performance data that is published and shared with all customers. Outcomes are measured and promises delivered.

Govtech-focus-on-you

We focus on you

On every step of the road, we are there to help, nurture and mentor your success. We don’t charge you for talking to us and we are never too busy to listen. Our success is built upon your success. We understand that to be the best at what we do, we must help customers be the best at what they do.
