Our software delivery approach for the public sector

Overview

Our blend of user-centred design and bespoke software engineering expertise means we can deliver full programmes spanning discovery, alpha, beta and live.

Digital services can improve interactions with citizens, patients and others – and deliver essential savings. We empower you with the technology and digital skills to provide even better public services.

We’ve worked in this space for over a decade, so know what it takes to create successful services that embrace Government Digital Service (GDS) best practices and pass GDS assessments.

Follow in the footsteps of the departments for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Education, Health and Social Care, the NHS, GDS themselves and numerous others: Partner with Softwire to design and build successful and cost-effective digital services.

Our approach

We’re agile – and we’ll pass on our expertise

We provide a highly capable and motivated team of people who genuinely care about improving public services. We work with you as one team, learning from you about your organisation and unique aims.

Working as a single team means we’re open and transparent, with knowledge-sharing a key part of our methods. And we’ll work from your offices or ours – whichever you prefer.

We’re agile through-and-through, having successfully delivered hundreds of these projects. And because we’re committed to coaching your people, you’ll absorb digital transformation best practices from other parts of the public sector and beyond.

So as well as high-quality digital outcomes, working with us means your team gains valuable skills and confidence to take into future projects.

Along the way, Softwire built capability within our team. Having seen first-hand how to do agile so professionally, we now use it in our non-digital projects. It’s been a massive help, particularly when we need to deliver projects to ministers quickly.Penny Walker-Robertson, Head of The Fleming Fund, a UK government aid programme.
