Self accelerates channel shift and improves customer service by enabling citizens to self-serve.

Through a common interface, authenticated citizens can access personalised services and information online at any time.

Self is underpinned by our ‘Customer Index’ that creates a single customer record used by all back-office systems and channels.

Over 150 UK councils rely on our Platform!

Firmstep’s Self in action

Having introduced the Self module, 30% of routine waste and recycling transactions have now channel shifted to online.
They have also used Self to achieve 99% online channel shift for applications for school selection tests in the borough.
