There is an urgent need to deliver more and better services quicker with tighter budgets in the National Healthcare Service (NHS) and across the British government. WalkMe's digital adoption platform (DAP) provides customised on screen guidance and automation to realise the promise of digital technology while improving the employee and end user experience as well as overall programme efficiency.

The platform can identify usage inefficiencies so that solutions can be deployed to improve adoption and overall user experience while providing unprecedented data insights to continuously improve.
Improving the adoption of digital technologies in the public sector will make services more accessible, reduce pressure on contact centers as end users opt for on screen help and automation, and lower staff attrition as employees can use their digital tools more easily and efficiently.
"We are honored to join the G-Cloud Digital Marketplace and do our part to strengthen government-citizen relationships through enhanced user experience and accessibility, We look forward to playing a role in the improvement of the digital citizen experience across the UK and to discover the innovative ways public sector organizations will use WalkMe technology to drive efficiency, save money, and elevate the experience for end users across the board."
