Target your customers and data

The best way to target your development effort efficiently is to understand which journeys your customers make the most. This might be a very different profile to that which the Registers of Scotland receives in general.

For example, an ideal case is one where your users or customers have a large volume of similar cases. Concentrating on this journey might give a lot of 'bang for development buck'.
