Transformation of will make access to government services easier, faster, and more accessible for Pennsylvania residents and businesses

Harrisburg, PA, May 29, 2024 – Publicis Sapient, a digital business transformation company, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have collaborated to reimagine and transform Pennsylvania’s public web presence, This holistic transformation will use Adobe Experience Cloud to bring over 60 separate government agency websites together to create a dramatically more streamlined and intuitive user experience, moving from an agency-centric to a resident-centric design that is organized by life events. The complete redesign and transformation of is part of an ongoing digital services transformation effort led by the Governor’s Office and Commonwealth Office of Digital Experience (CODE PA).

“Today’s launch is the start of a new chapter for how Pennsylvanians interact with the Commonwealth online,” said Bry Pardoe, Executive Director of CODE PA. “We promise to continuously seek feedback from residents so that we can make more improvements to the websites launched in this first phase and incorporate lessons learned into the ongoing work to redesign the rest of sites.”

"It's been exciting and fulfilling to collaborate with CODE PA to help bring Governor Shapiro’s digital vision to life for the Commonwealth of PA," said James Kessler, SVP, State and Local Government Industry Lead at Publicis Sapient. “At Publicis Sapient, we focus on transformational opportunities that can have the biggest impact on the most people and reimagining the public web presence in our nation’s 5th largest state is a bullseye into that mission. All Pennsylvanians will be able to digitally access and engage with the Commonwealth in a way that is simple, seamless, and most importantly, based upon their perspective and needs. This is just the beginning of the state's digital business transformation journey and I look forward to continuing our collaboration with CODE PA for future impact on PA residents and businesses.”

In collaboration with CODE PA, Publicis Sapient researched, strategized, envisioned, designed and technically developed an all new version of The modernized public web presence uses Adobe Experience Cloud applications, including Adobe Experience Manager on Cloud Services (with SitesAssets with Dynamic Media and Forms),  Adobe Analytics and Adobe Target, to unify its agency sites into a standard, scalable environment. This helps ensure the state can seamlessly deliver consistent and personalized experiences for residents across government agency websites.

The first phase of the public web presence transformation, launching today, focused on integrating the first 10% of the 60+ separate government agency websites to create a more unified experience. The remaining websites will be integrated with several launch waves throughout 2024 and into 2025. The new inclusive, accessible and service-centric design system enhances usability, consistency and efficacy across, while ensuring that its capabilities and content are fully accessible for all Pennsylvania residents and businesses. Additional features will be rolled out in the coming months to further enhance and refine the user experience. For example, residents will be able to conduct searches based on planned or unplanned significant life events, such as "experiencing a financial setback" or "relocating to a new town" in order to easily find details on government services that are available to them.

 "Government websites are critical access points for residents to obtain information and essential services," said Michael Levy, Vice President, Public Sector at Adobe. "By leveraging Adobe Experience Cloud, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is accelerating its digital modernization efforts so it can enable easier access to these services and enhance resident engagement."

The life event-driven, resident-centric approach to will make the Commonwealth’s digital services more efficient and user-friendly, enabling residents and businesses to quickly find the services they need even if they do not know the specific agency, or often multiple agencies, that provide them. The reimagined will also drive efficiency for government agencies through improved workflows, the ability to strategically reuse content, and the implementation of call deflection for self-serve residents.
