The US government’s 400+ agencies and sub-agencies largely rely on outdated software to deliver services to the American public. Commercial innovation is able to move much faster than the government, but in recent years, agencies have started to modernize with digital experiences that meet the needs of their users and streamline workflows.
Government agencies spend around $900 billion every year working with nearly a million large and small contractors. The approaches and methodologies we use with Fortune 500 companies are the same ones we apply to our government projects. We show agencies how human-centered design can solve customer needs and that flexible software can adapt to their future plans. We also teach them best practices across experience design and design strategy, delivery, systems, and operations. By working with seasoned design agencies, government organizations can be confident they’re building the best experiences for their external and internal users.
