OpenText ECM Suite Enables Improved Service Delivery

Thanks to the OpenText solution, Provincie Zuid-Holland was able to successfully achieve the government’s aim of fully digital service delivery to both citizens and businesses. The efficiency of our processes was increased considerably, improving our service quality and enabling us to assess our decision-making processes in a more transparent manner.
