Software services

We are increasing software services to allow you to create digital infrastructure that will enable users to interact with us seamlessly online, while remaining in your software.

This will include new and improved functionality, as well as making current portal functions available for you to build into your products. Services for business and practice management software will be developed using an agile methodology and iterative delivery.

The new services will complement the existing SBR services, allowing your users to perform basic, high-volume functions. Your users will have visibility of ATO information allowing them to better understand and manage interactions with us.
