star this property answer text <p>The Digital Transformation Programme is targeting the redevelopment and improvement of key Defra services to make them easier for customers to interact with the department, and to make cost efficiencies through the use of more modern and flexible technology that is better able to support Defra's services through changing requirements. Different areas of work within the Programme are looking at different services provided by Defra, most of which are already online. However, there are a number of projects and work streams which will deliver reductions of the amount of manual processing on paper. These include:</p><p> </p><p>- Farm Services Management: through the roll-out of a new scheduling and data capture tool which, in conjunction with new mobile devices, will reduce the amount of paper-recording by APHA inspectors.</p><p>- Animal Disease Testing Service: which provides a digital alternative to written requests from Vets for disease tests for animals.</p><p>- Fishing Rod Licenses: by providing an easier digital application process, so reducing the proportions of requests through telephone or over-the-counter channels.</p><p> </p><p>These are important benefits of the Digital Transformation Programme. But the main focus of the Programme is to replace old systems with newer ones that are more cost effective and easier for customers to use.</p><p> </p>
