Personal Government: Renewal of public services in the post-digital era

We pioneered the transition from analogue- to digital government, and we’re now inventing the future for the post-digital era: citizen-centric, personalized, equitable, and sustainable public services. We create public services that assure high public approval, policy effectiveness, and efficiency.

Tax declarations take minutes (or less), not hours or days. Social benefits need not be applied for—eligible citizens simply receive them. A new national ID or driver license is automatically received when an old one expires. New businesses and bank accounts are started with ease, securely, and in minutes.

We help governments envision outcomes, forge a strategy and actionable roadmap, and deliver services to the public.

The Real-time Economy: The digital public infrastructure that drives GDP growth

A digital public infrastructure built on a free exchange and use of information is the foundation for a highly efficient business environment.

Business transactions and reporting are simplified, and administrative burdens and costs of transactions are brought to a minimum. Government entities then use their real-time insights to fuel the economy, and data become insights that benefit both business and the general public.

We advise governments on the real-time economy and interoperability, and we deliver solutions and services that are tools for better decision making.
