Digital forms and processes must be tailored to their very specific needs without compromising speed or accuracy.

Many moving parts are involved in responding to citizens’ demands for government files, and every agency processes these transactions differently.

Staff Expectations Memo

Many government entities need their employees to sign memos that formally outline standards for performance and behavior at least once a year. It takes an inordinate amount of time and tedious labor to distribute these documents and collect signatures from hundreds of workers by hand.
