About us: Using digital government to deliver public services

The biggest challenge facing governments today is turning policy into action.

Once laws have been drafted, technology should help rather than hinder the ability of governments to deliver on their promises by providing public services quickly and effectively through efficient and paper-free administrations in areas such as climate, jobs, environment, food and health.

Our ready-to-use cloud-based digital platform has been designed with both civil servants and end users in mind. Civil servants use our intuitive drag-and-drop system to create online public services. They don’t require prior IT knowledge, equipment or expensive project management.

It works for any service in any ministry and is compatible with existing digital IDs and government websites to ensure a seamless user experience.

Why it matters

We make our platform available to national, provincial and municipal authorities through a perpetual user license and training at our Digital Government Academy (in cooperation with UNITAR).

As part of the training course we start with one service, examining the related laws, regulations and existing procedures.

From there we use a drag-and-drop interface to build the first online service. The platform creates the necessary databases and user interface, and connects with existing government services and login systems.

With the knowledge and experience gained, civil servants can train their colleagues and add further services at no extra cost. They can also modify services at any time to act on user feedback or changes in laws.

Our approach
We help governments replace complex paper-based procedures involving multiple government offices with our simple online platform accessible from any device. More citizens and businesses get the services and authorizations they need anytime, anywhere.
We train government staff to see procedures from the user's perspective, simplify them, place them on our no-code online platform and train their colleagues to do the same so their governments progressively go fully digital.
