Digitisation goes beyond a digital interface

Whilst simply changing a form from paper to digital provides a range of improvements in areas such as user experience and data quality, the real gains in efficiency are realised by streamlining the processes that relate to the data being captured. Panellists will discuss the digitisation journey they have been on and provide advice on best practise approaches.
