OpenBureau provides government agencies with everything they need for successful project deployment.
Our proactive project management and agile development process ensure delivery on time and on budget.
We kick off each major project with a careful discovery process resulting in sound strategies for information architecture, database architecture and user experience. This includes a full evaluation of any existing technologies already in use by our client. Our design process results in creative identity and user-interface design. Our production process encompasses content development, data evaluation / scrubbing / import, customization of open source content management and constituent management software. Our quality assurance process includes usability testing, training and documentation. Short and long-term post-launch support is available as needed, but our open-source tools and our collaborative process enable clients to become as self-sufficient as they wish. OpenBureau is about empowerment, not lock-in.
