The KPMG and PSN report, Customer and Technology Transformation in Local Government, examines the benefits and challenges councils are facing in their transformation programs. Toni Jones, KPMG Local Government Lead, and Luke Heine from KPMG Enterprise discuss the findings.

"Councils need to integrate their front, middle and back office systems and processes for optimal benefits."

"Take your people with you. Investment in change management is important."
