Government – Delivering award-winning digital transformations

Award-winning digital solutions for Victorian and Australian governments

As award-winning government website specialists, we’ve created digital experiences for Australian state and federal government departments and agencies that have transformed the way citizens interact with government.

With 18 years of working alongside Australian government in transformation projects, we have and an intimate understanding of citizen access, user engagement, and the processes required to make the transition. We understand the complex, unique problems faced when engaging with users and citizens online. Our purpose to our government clients is to partner and produce user-driven solutions that help and not hinder citizen access to information.

  • In person training

    As part of a typical project, we provide a practical training manual that covers the key tasks that your team will undertake when managing content across the application. Onsite or virtual training sessions can be provided to ensure the content management team is well-informed of the system in place and its capabilities.

  • Continuous improvement

    The fun doesn’t end at the project launch and close. Working with you as your digital partner and through ongoing agency support retainers, we can assist in the collection and analysis of user behavior to identify trends and pain points to make informed recommendations towards a digital roadmap that supports growth and scaleability.

Digital solutions for Government

Whether you need end-to-end digital solutions or support in only one or two areas, we’ll tailor a package that achieves all your goals. Our collaborative approach means we’re also happy to work with any other external partners involved in your project.

Digital roadmapping

We’ll get a clear picture of where you are now and where you want to be. As with a product lifecycle is in place for products, so too should a lifecycle be in place for an application, website, or intranet/extranet. Understanding your application roadmap ensures that your team and ours are working alongside each other at every step of the way in the applications lifecycle.

User experience

We'll dig deep into your user needs, behaviors, and motivations to design an intuitive system that speaks to the user's experience.

Solution design

We’ll document your solution in detail to ensure the system is planned on paper for review and approval in the early stages and before any build takes place, reducing any risk of potential exponential cost to change later in the project

Digital design

Using a co-design process with you as the subject-matter expert will see an engaging, user-focused interface design that combines function and design that also adheres to Government and accessibility standards and guidelines.

Web development

Whether it be a custom integration or web applications, websites, or intranets our team of developers are seasoned professionals with certifications as Acquia Certified Drupal developers, Accessibility certified through Vision Australia. Our developers are experienced across Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla opensource technologies, as well as Headless and Decoupled environments. Working as your development partner, our team can lead your development or become part of your agile team for additional development resourcing and support.

Ongoing support

We’ll continue to support your team in any way you need well after your project has launched. Our goal is to make your job easier and your website performance exceptional.
