BUSINESS CASE
Contact Inflation cost Government £1m's a year
Contact Inflation occurs when citizens are unable to self-serve using low cost digital channels like websites or chatbots.
They instead move towards high cost channels such as phone, webchat, email, or even face-to-face contact, and their frustration is increased further when those channels are unavailable outside of working hours. We estimate that contact inflation costs Government £1m's per year.
