Got 2 and a half minutes?  Check out this short animation that shows the principles that lead us to create Digital Place. 

For a brief introduction to the principles that led us to create Digital Place, we put together this short animation. It lasts less than 150 seconds.


How does Digital Place help?

Digital Place is helping to #FixThePlumbing by providing an Open Integration Platform that creates better connected digital places for local public service providers. It is designed to equip those who are facing the challenge of integrating a patchwork of systems to deliver the simple service experiences users expect to get online … like booking appointments, claiming for things, paying for things or getting help from the council.

We’ve used 15 years’ experience working alongside local government, helping to make digital projects more affordable. We take well-designed services, package them as re-usable digital building blocks, integrating services from end-to-end, and using data to deliver user experiences that are simple and personalised to the individual.

As a result of re-use, open standards and the global leading technology we deploy, we are confident we can show you how Digital Place delivers better, more efficient and accessible services for less money. This also answers the government’s call for all new code to be open source (not proprietary), enabling service transformation to span across every local provider.


So what could your Digital Place look like?

A variety of design styles are available out-of-the-box, consistent with standards of accessibility, user experience and service design as recommended by the updated Government Service Standard (see the GOV.UK Blog). Of course, these can be customised or entirely re-designed to meet your precise specification.
