Council up the ante for online customer services

MORAY COUNCIL HAS expanded their growing online services portal and are now encouraging residents to sign-up for a safe and secure route to local services.

The local authority say that their ‘myaccount’ service will be available 24/7 and, once registered, users will be able to report, apply, book and review Council’s services in the one location through a personalised portal.

Each time the new accounts is used for any service there will be no need to re-enter the same details – all forms will be automatically populated, can be saved for completion later and then submitted online so no need for printing and posting.

Part of ‘Moray Connected’ the service is focused on offering consistent and high quality services reflecting the needs of communities and the ever increasing number of online users.
