  • User Experience/User-Centered Design

    OPTiMO’s design process starts with a focus on the user experience and ends with easy-to-use, human-centered products that are tailored to suit targeted users. Throughout our highly efficient and iterative process, our experts develop and execute user research, persona-based methodologies, structured blueprints, and working simulations that expose critical usability features early on. OPTiMO’s proven approach results in high-quality, modern applications that are not only visually engaging, but also empowering to the users of those applications as well as the federal agency itself.

  • Application Development

    OPTiMO’s in-house development team builds responsive, beautiful applications on multiple client platforms including iOS, Android, and the web. We maintain expertise in rapidly evolving technologies such as React and Angular, more popular frameworks such as Dojo and jQuery, enterprise-grade server-side technologies like Java EE and Spring, standards such as HTML5 and CSS3, and still-popular technologies like PHP and CFML. In addition to seamlessly integrating with modern and legacy back-end systems via API gateways, OPTiMO’s applications include embedded analytics to enable continual improvements in user value and engagement.
