Knowing How to Design the Best Government Sites Users Trust

Every web design project is different. But, building a functional web presence for a Government agency? That is a unique challenge that is hard to match, no matter what the size of the municipality. Government web design is no small feat. 

We’ve already talked about how important it is for a Government website to have a strategy in place. We’ve also covered how Government agencies can engage their stakeholders online. None of these tips will be helpful to you, though, if you don’t have the right design and development team on your side. After all, you need a vendor who can turn your vision into a stable and useful finished project. You also need a team who can help you avoid common pitfalls along the way.

At Atlantic BT, we love the challenge that Government web design presents. With years of experience and plenty of know how, we’re well suited to collaborate and create. Here are a few reasons Governments at every level turn to us again and again.

Drupal and Why It’s Great for Government Websites

A good content management system is to a website what a foundation is to a home. So, you need one that’s functional and sturdy. For Governmental agencies, Drupal is the ideal choice. Not only is it free and open source, it’s security is also strong and versatile. Personal information is safe as hackers have a hard time breaking in. It can also work for almost any type of website or purpose. Even better, Drupal works on a regular release schedule. This means that you can plan future changes without any unexpected downtime.

AWS GovCloud and Public Partnership Certification

All businesses and organizations want to take advantage of cloud computing technologies. But, Governmental agencies have to be careful when doing so. They have unique needs when it comes to budgeting, privacy, and security. Atlantic BT is a proud partner in the Amazon Web Services GovCloud. We can help you take advantage of special pricing and custom plans. You can rely on real-time information sharing, data backups, and much more. Your website stays fast and protected, without burning a hole in your budget.

The Ins and Outs of Regulatory Compliance

The regulations surrounding FISMA, SCAP, FDCC, and USGCB (to name a few) can be overwhelming. Worry not, we’re familiar with each one. As a result, we can get you online faster with every detail in place. This will ensure that you’re always compliant with the latest standards. Thanks to our AWS Public Partnership, we have the tools needed to adhere to your guidelines.

Citizen and User-Friendly Experiences Across Agencies

What you’ll find is a web presence that has something for every citizen and user. An 18 year old registering to vote or a senior who wants to check their community calendar can both do so. Every user, no matter what they need, can access and navigate the site with ease. We can help you build and launch a website that serves everyone. No matter how large your audience is or how diverse their needs might be, we’re committed to your citizens. Every single one.
