Government Website Design & Development
Considering everything involved in the web design and development process including time, money and the finished product; GovUnity is an unmatched government website design company. Our professionally designed municipal websites focus on optimizing the user experience while saving your staff valuable time. Our government website designers and developers carefully consider website accessibility standards included ADA Section 508 and WCAG 2.0.
Our website development process is faster and smoother than other government website design firms. Our web designers and developers build municipal customer websites live on a subdomain of our own site.
We encourage our customers to regularly review the development website and provide feedback throughout the entire development process. This allows our website designers to make adjustments in real time, keeping the development timeline on track.
In addition to allowing municipal staff to review the site during development you may elect to provide the link to outside bodies. Provide the development link to council/board members or a focus group of residents to get additional feedback. This helps ensure a varienty of viewpoints, including your targert audience, are considered during the website design and development process.
Custom and Accessible Website Designs
Every website we develop is responsive, easy to navigate, and 100% custom designed for our customer’s unique needs. GovUnity does not force customers to work with pre-built page templates.
Compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is a key part of our design and training process. People with disabilities and those using assistive technologies (such as screen readers) require the same level of access to the website as those without a disability.
Learn more about WCAG and website accessibility compliance and design on our Accessiblity page.
Easy to Maintain and Update
We have created a detailed and efficient website training program. Website training includes everything you need to know to properly maintain and update your local government website. Training includes tips and best practies to maintain website accessibility compliance as new content and web pages are added by municipal staff.
