Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:TYL) today announced the redesign of the state of Utah’s official website, Utah.gov, developed by NIC Utah. The site redesign represents a significant improvement over the previous version of Utah.gov and continues Utah’s history of providing superior digital services and improved user experience.
“Our administration is focusing on fundamentally changing the way government interacts with people, giving them access to more information and more data than they have ever had before,” said Utah Governor Spencer Cox. “The improvements to Utah.gov are designed to present information and services in a way that both make sense and make it easy to parse through. Utah.gov simplifies interactions with Utah government and makes information accessible to help people make decisions in their own lives.”
The redesign was based on extensive analysis of current usage and research into key user groups, including younger adult users who may be conducting services with the government for the first time. The result is a more intuitive digital experience. Enhancements were made to improve the site’s performance, including how quickly pages load.
A convenient online chatbot help tool called “Porter” assists users in finding popular services on the site. The site has also been optimized to better connect users to Utah.gov services through a Google or other search engine search. The redesigned Utah.gov continues to feature photography from some of the state’s many scenic locales.
“Utah.gov provides vital infrastructure for Utah residents,” said Governor Cox. “Whether you live on the Wasatch Front, in southern Utah, or in one of our great rural communities, Utah.gov provides equal opportunity to access necessary state services.”
NIC Utah, part of NIC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tyler Technologies, worked with the state of Utah on the redesign.
More than 2.3 million users visited Utah.gov in 2020 to find information about employment, careers, and starting or growing businesses as well as to conduct other transactions like vehicle registration renewals and professional licensing. Utah.gov is also one of the most frequently awarded state government websites. To date, Utah.gov has been recognized with more than 280 awards. To learn more, visit Utah.gov.
