NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY (NGA)
Our engagement with NGA involved a deep dive into the user environment of analysts working with multi-INT geospatial software. We undertook extensive UX research and testing, rapidly prototyping to refine data visualization and modeling capabilities. This iterative process, paired with our expertise in Angular development and robust DevOps support, was pivotal in evolving mission-critical software to meet the high-stakes needs of the analysts. The outcome was a user experience tailored to enhance the analytic process, facilitating a more intuitive interaction with complex geospatial data.
SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND (USSOCOM)
In collaboration with SOCOM, we modernized legacy systems, consolidating and enhancing them to refine the analysts’ workflow. Our work included building tailored geospatial SIGINT and GEOINT software, developing an integrated enterprise system for better app interoperability, and streamlining tool management through a central dashboard. The project also featured the launch of SOCOM’s inaugural analyst app marketplace, all supported by in-depth UX research to ensure the delivery of user-centric, mission-optimized functionalities.
INTERNAL REVENUESERVICE (IRS)
Our work with the IRS involves in-depth UX research and design to reimagine and integrate a streamlined auditing process within the Pega Government Platform™. We’re transitioning from traditional manual and physical methods to a digital, more efficient approach. This enhancement significantly benefits IRS employees and American taxpayers by simplifying interactions and providing a transparent audit experience. Our efforts are setting the stage for a service that impacts all Americans, equipping the IRS to address immediate operational needs and future organizational goals effectively.
