      Working with your users, we facilitate engagement activities to better understand the gaps in our understanding of our users and the perceived problems. Ongoing testing will ensure that there is regular validation throughout your project to deliver a successful user-centered project outcome.

    • Accessibility compliance

      Accessibility compliance will always be an integral part of any digital project, with approximately 18% of Australians having some form of disability. To reflect this, our digital specialists are trained in accessibility compliance for digital development and auditing and follow WCAG 2.1 AA standards. This will ensure your project is accessible and valuable to all users.

    • Ongoing training

      As a large utility, staff and responsibilities can change regularly. To ensure continuity in ongoing content management, we’ll deliver valuable training and support over the phone or face-to-face, with practical training material to refer to.

    • Continuous improvement

      Working with your team post-project launch, we can help build a digital roadmap for the project lifecycle. This may include user audits and functional and analytics reviews to enhance your results further and contribute to or create data-led functions to be incorporated into the digital roadmap.
