Digital Services

Aquilent is the leading solutions provider for federal government digital services. We’ve designed, developed, or supported over 100 of the nation’s most prominent federal websites and digital services, providing compelling and productive citizen engagement.

Helping You Make the Most of Your Digital Services

To operate more effectively and better serve constituents in today’s digital world, government must provide services online and via mobile devices, making those services available to every citizen at any time, everywhere, on any device they want to use.

Digital services—websites, interactive tools, and applications—empower federal agencies and their constituents to work and engage more efficiently and easily. From transactions such as enrolling in a healthcare plan and buying postage stamps to acquiring and sharing information, the key to successful government digital experiences is innovation and simplicity in both design and technology.

Our approach is based on a constant focus on the user and their needs. We are at the forefront of emerging technologies, utilizing open-source platforms, Agile and DevOps methodologies, Cloud services, and best practices to rapidly provide innovative solutions that help federal government realize the full value of its digital services.

Perfectly Aligned with the U.S. Digital Services Playbook

It’s no coincidence that the U.S. Digital Services Playbook aligns perfectly with Aquilent’s digital services and approach. Decades of experience as a strategic partner to our federal customers have not only made us a leader in the federal technology space, we’ve helped define and develop many of its best practices. In fact, we help design and develop the government’s top usability source, Usability.gov.
