Hackney Council launched an online Rent Account service in October. Since then it has been used 50,000 times by 12,000 people. However, just 27% have tried to make a payment on the service and 36% of people have failed to complete an online payment.
We want to explore how we might increase payments through personalised notifications and an easier payment process. Problem to be solved - 80% of users access the service on a mobile, but the current payment gateway is not optimised for mobile - We do not provide messages to users of the service, beyond their rent data - There are constraints in the user interface as a result of using the lowcode platform
My Rent Account is now live as a beta service! Enjoy https://rentaccount.hackney.gov.uk/myrentaccount
