The Transport Accident Commission (the TAC) is a Victorian Government-owned organisation that promotes road safety, improves the state’s trauma system and supports people injured in or affected by transport accidents.
The TAC wanted to improve the way it worked with clients who had been in or affected by transport accidents and were eligible for compensation. It sought Nous’ help to innovatively redesign processes to deliver a service to help its clients have greater choice in and earlier access to compensation to get their lives back on track.
Nous undertook a process of discovery to understand the opportunities available. We:
We found that although each part of the TAC was client-focused in its delivery, clients really wanted all areas to work together to put the client at the centre. We therefore used human-centred design to work with the TAC and its clients to create an improved client experience. We used structured ideation to identify new products and services and tested prototypes with clients to gain feedback to inform further development.
Nous delivered a suite of new service and product options that tested positively with clients for an improved compensation experience, along with recommendations to progressively implement each solution through iterative development and ongoing client feedback. Throughout the project we worked onsite with the TAC to help it develop its internal innovation capability and human-centred design practices, providing it with new skills and an approach to repeat for continuous product and service development.
