A static website building and hosting solution for the public service
An internal study conducted by the Singapore government in 2017 found that over one-third of our government websites failed basic usability checks. Other problems include:
Website downtime: Cases of government sites not accessible for hours in any given month.
Poor UX: Many had outdated designs that does not work well on mobile devices and not accessible to persons with visual impairments.
Slow: Certain sites took more than 10 seconds to load, when modern sites should never take more than 2 seconds.
Expensive: A simple website can cost the Singapore government upwards of S$65,000 per year, racking a hefty bill across the government.
The aim was to build a service to help Singapore government websites look better, run faster, and more secure — all at a low cost.
