Working alongside you to make our world work better
Collaborating with you to transform our public sector
A digital transformation partner for the real world
In the real world, you don’t need big promises about transformation, or the endless “exploratories” that accompany them. You need progress. You need new products and experiences to be designed, built, deployed and improved in less time and with greater insight. And you need better ways to collect, analyse and leverage your data to inform the future.
By combining deep industry expertise, data-intelligence, world-class engineering and seamless delivery, we’re setting out to prove why it’s time for a new approach to making progress.
Delivering to the Service Standard
We work in the open, ensuring all our public sector engagements are deeply aligned to GDS principles and best practice. Agile working is second nature, following the GDS Service Manual for design, technology and accessibility to ensure your service passes all Service Assessments with flying colours.
We're not just a supplier, we're a partner
We work alongside you, developing and growing your teams' knowledge and confidence. With tried and tested methodologies for transferring knowledge, we exist to empower and augment your people and processes. We always aim to go beyond mere delivery, delivering long-lasting value and tangible capability growth.
Users at the heart of the digital experience
From Discovery through to Alpha, Beta and Live we research, engage and listen to users at every stage. Continual testing and iterative review is integral to our agile methodologies ensuring everything we build on your behalf is accessible, inclusive and meets the needs of our diverse population.
An approach that works for you
The public sector faces unique challenges when it comes to digital transformation. Translating government policy into exemplary digital services requires user-centred methodologies steeped in research and insight, but also great creativity, innovation and design. We believe public sector services should match or exceed the best that the private sector can offer. At Kin + Carta, we blend our private sector expertise with our public sector know-how to give you the best of both worlds.
We test for quality at every stage to meet and beat your standards so you can be confident that your project will pass assessment every time.
You can trust us to deliver – at pace and within the Technology Code of Practice, protecting budgets and timescales.
Creativity and Innovation
Compliant shouldn’t mean dull. We always consider where we can impress your users with the touches that enhance their experience.
Diverse, cross-functional teams
Sharing extensive public sector experience, our cross-functional blended teams offer a complete service and increase opportunities for your people to learn.
Data-driven decision making
Data is at the heart of our decision making, and we are leading the charge in the use of machine learning and AI to deliver insights.
We are leaders in Designing with Empathy, ensuring we test throughout, ensuring accessibility and inclusivity for all users.
People you can trust
You want to be confident that the agency you choose isn’t all advertising speak and no delivery. Kin + Carta has proven itself time and again when it comes to creating digital platforms that truly work for those trying to solve problems and provide information to the general public.
