Understanding customer needs

The Business Portal is for a spectrum of users, from novice to experienced entrepreneurs. And it needs to be easy to manage for internal stakeholders. We spend time with them all to ensure that we’re developing content, design, and technology solutions focused on their needs rather than on assumptions.

Curating content

Everyone benefits from streamlined, intuitive, and unified digital experiences. We bring together stakeholders across agencies to understand existing resources, learn about bottlenecks, and uncover opportunities for consolidation. This enables us to deliver the right content to the right users in the right context.

Designing a custom theme

Maybe you have an existing brand or a companion website to match. Or perhaps this is an opportunity to create a more modern digital experience. We designed every aspect of the Business Portal for clarity and efficiency, made it mobile optimized, and customizable to your preferred look and feel.

Tailoring your installation

While the Business Portal was built in Drupal 7, we consider your existing resources and unique technology needs. We bring the right experts for your custom installation and maintenance, work hand-in-hand with your team, and help to ensure that you get the most value out of your investment.

Contributing to the platform

The Business Portal is open-source so cities can build on each other’s investments and join forces in supporting the backbone of our economy – our small businesses. By sharing back your project’s code additions, your city joins a growing, forward-thinking community of government technologists who believe in improving government services everywhere.
