SimpleUsability appointed to two government frameworks
We’re delighted to announce that SimpleUsability has been appointed to the Government’s Digital Marketplace to offer services under both the Digital Outcomes and Specialists and G-Cloud 7 frameworks.
Under G-Cloud 7, our services offered span mobile and agile usability research and user-centred design services including card sorting and persona development.
The recently launched Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework includes user research, user experience and design, user researchers, the hire of three research studios and research participant recruitment.
Our Founder & MD, Guy, comments, “As more services become digital by default, we’ve been contacted by a number of government departments keen to find out more about our unique behavioural and usability research.
“Being on the Digital Marketplace makes it easier for a wide range of public sector bodies to buy our services and tap into our knowledge and expertise. We have just secured our first contract through G-Cloud and hope to win many more.”
Alongside the framework success, we’ve also strengthened the team with the arrival of Mark Branigan as Senior UX Practitioner from the Government’s Digital Service (GDS), the organisation charged with leading the digital transformation of the UK government.
Mark’s experience at both GDS and DWP is a great asset both to SimpleUsability and to our public sector clients. As a former accredited assessor, Mark is fully fluent with GDS service standard for user research, assisted digital and accessibility.
As the government strives to digitise their service delivery, SimpleUsability is one of the few agencies outside London that can provide a complete service from discovery testing through alpha and beta stages to fully researched, robust service delivery.
