Can cross-border e-services soon be a real thing?
In October DIGINNO partners came together twice for two-day service design training sessions in Tallinn. The aim of this was to set the basis for developing cross-border e-services’ show-cases in the near future.
The objective of the training sessions was for the partners to acquire similar methodological basis for developing cross-border services’ show-cases. With the help of the strategic design agency Velvet, project partners and involved experts in the field looked at how to analyze the current situation and find the main ‘pain points’ but also how to develop new solutions taking into account the users’ point-of-view.
Beforehand, the project partners had chosen 4 services to focus on:
- Cross-border eCMR – paperless consignment notes in road transport
- Cross-border business registration with Integrated eIDAS Framework
- Cross border remote Know-Your-Customer (KYC) processes – Financial sector
- Cross-border eReceipt application
With the guidance of Foundation Tallinn Science Park Tehnopol mentor, the work will continue in groups focused around the 4 show-case services. Experts in the field from both private and public sector will be included in the process. The descriptions of the show-cases and feasibility studies will be conducted in spring 2019.
