SAN FRANCISCO, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte Digital today announced businessCONNECT, based on the Salesforce platform, which facilitates economic development by enabling professionals to conveniently interact and collaborate with government agencies online. businessCONNECT is a Salesforce Fullforce solution that allows businesses to easily see the status of their registrations, submit license/permit applications, and pay associated fees and more. businessCONNECT is designed to help states create jobs, attract new businesses, reduce transaction costs, increase tax revenues, improve customer service and forge closer connections with their constituents.
Deloitte Digital envisions a future in which every touch point with government is digitally enabled. Currently gaining traction in the marketplace is businessCONNECT's licenses and permits offering, which increases transparency into the licensing and permitting process, facilitates regulatory compliance, encourages timely payments of fees, and addresses operational inefficiencies within the current model. "We saw enormous potential in digitizing the process for getting a license," said Sucha Kukatla, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and Deloitte Digital public sector leader. "Starting with licensing and permitting services, Deloitte Digital is building the model for a new age of government services: a centralized digital engagement platform that transforms government-constituent interaction to drive economic growth."
"Today, more than ever before, people and things are connected, and the cloud has enabled amazing innovations that have boosted engagement, information and productivity across government," said Dave Rey, executive vice president, public sector at Salesforce. "Deloitte Digital's combination of industry experience and digital technology leadership allows them to deliver personalized and engaging platforms that transform the way that governments can interact with their constituents, especially in the licensing and permitting space."
