CX, or customer experience, involves listening to our communities, so we can understand their needs when interacting with services, including government. The Customer Experience Unit (CXU) aims to improve the way people experience and interact with government, reducing pain points, saving them time, effort and easing the administrative burden to get things done.
CXU sits within the Department of Customer Service and is committed to connecting government services, so people don’t have to. CXU partners with government agencies, utilising a range of data insights and human-centred design to drive service improvements and solutions, inform policy and monitor and evaluate solutions based on consultation and research direct with the community.
