Launched in May 2017, our website was co-designed with our community to transform the Boroondara online customer experience.
The launch of our new site was a key milestone in our Customer Experience Improvement Strategy which is all about putting you at the centre of everything we do.
In keeping with our customer-first promise and our commitment to keeping you informed, this Website Performance Dashboard has been developed to show our progress towards creating an empowering online experience for our community.
These results are from 1 October - 31 December 2018 and will be updated quarterly.

How many customers are accessing our services through eForms
Last quarter 6869 eForms were completed, with October being our busiest month. The most-used forms were: Review my parking infringement notice, Contact us and Bin request.
The most-used eForms vary each quarter due to seasonal fluctuations in service demands.
Contact Council, Renewal of registration for business and Review my parking infringement notice had less submissions in November 2018 than November 2017, accounting for the small drop in eForm completions when compared to this time last year.
How satisfied are customers with our eForms
More than half of the customers who completed eForms last quarter provided a rating about their experience.
Of the 3616 customer ratings we received, 94 per cent of customers rated our eForms as ‘very easy’ or ‘easy’ to use.
