Delivering Digital Government Efficiencies

Providing innovative services and solutions that help serve constituents in an efficient and cost-effective manner

Web & Mobile Application Development

We develop unique ways to interact with government online.

We have a history of creating innovative eGovernment services to help make government more accessible to everyone through technology. We build and manage eGovernment solutions that help our agency partners realize cost savings and greater operational efficiencies. Our customized online and mobile government solutions also simplify complex processes and allow the citizens and business to interact quickly and easily with state and local government.

Application Maintenance & Enhancements

An important component of providing eGovernment services is to provide support and enhancements throughout the life of the service. Many of these actions involve upgrading, preserving, and supporting the environment so that the application continues to provide the best experience for users. As security needs evolve, it is also important to safeguard eGovernment services and the environment where they are hosted. For more information on the services we have created for Connecticut, visit the Our Work page.

Application Engine

The Application Engine is a platform that supports multiple types of application development, and is a suite of inter-operable web services that allow for the building of responsive web applications on-demand. This is a proprietary platform, including development and runtime tools, operating systems, and underlying infrastructure (CPUs, Disk Drives, Networks, Datacenters), which is used to deliver Software-as-a-Service solutions.

Web Services The underlying Forms web service dynamically creates wizard-style applications by reading configuration files from the server (defined in XML). Data collected by the Form application can be exchanged with other web services using a plugin architecture.

Form Builder is a web application that allows non-technical staff to rapidly create and modify applications using Form services.

Form Application is what results from a unique configuration of the Forms web service (XML). Web users can navigate to a URL and they will be presented with Pages, Sections, Text, and Questions (fields), along with navigation buttons which advance to the next/previous page.
