Our Take on Software in Government

At Atomic, we balance consultation with craft. We’ll be your guide, helping you make smart decisions that work for your organization. Based on what we’ve seen in GovTech, here are three challenges waiting to be solved by custom software.

Inefficient Service Delivery

Many government agencies and public organizations rely on outdated processes and systems. These aging methods limit accessibility to government services and information.

Challenges in Data Management and Analysis

Public sector organizations grapple with the management and analysis of vast and diverse datasets. This complexity can impede effective data utilization, decision-making, and program effectiveness.

Public Awareness and Participation Difficulties

In a noisy information ecosystem, promoting active stakeholder engagement in government processes is tricky. Encouraging input and unencumbered use of services is an ongoing issue in the public sector.
"The engagement with Atomic was excellent overall — one of the best experiences I've had with a custom development partner in a long time. From billing and invoices to communication and quality of work, it was all top notch."

Government Software Decision Guide

Government leaders face a decision when it comes to software: should they build it or buy it?‍‍

Off-the-shelf solutions may almost fit your needs. Should you spend more for custom government software bespoke to your operation?

There are pros and cons to both approaches. But how do you weigh them in your particular case? At the end of the day, the decision comes down to cost and control.

Our free guide for government leaders helps them weigh the benefits and costs of each decision.

A better government software solution—and a better time building it

20 years’ experience has taught us how to help you make the right choices for your users and your bottom line.

First, we help our clients in the government space ensure they build the right software. We do this using a proven process informed by Human-Centered Design principles.

Then we transform those findings into functioning software, released to clients in two-week increments.

We supply design, development, and delivery expertise together. That means you spend less time managing vendors and more time delivering impact.

Atomic prizes transparency, and clients who engage with us feel that. Each team tracks project progress against the remaining budget. If any problems arise, the team surfaces them. No surprises.

That’s why our clients give us top marks for quality and satisfaction:

You’re the hero of your software project

Here’s how we leverage your expertise to design and develop customized solutions. It’s a time-tested process that breaks down problems and unlocks your opportunities.

Our clients appreciate us for adapting our process to what works best for them. We won’t shoehorn you into an inefficient process that doesn’t match what you're trying to accomplish. Our clients are busy, and they insist on transparency and value across the entire software creation process. We deliver.

That’s why 36 clients came back to us when they had an additional project—many for more than one product. These additional new product investments total more than $33 million.

"Kim did a really good job of listening and bringing order to chaos. That’s exactly what we needed in this particular project, and she did a great job. So much so that it landed more work for Atomic."
