DAS Team wins Government Experience Award

On Tuesday, the Center for Digital Government (CDG) announced that Connecticut was among this year's  Government Experience Awards winners.  The awards recognize the achievements of states, cities, counties, and the federal government that have raised the bar on digital experience to create a more responsive government for a better-engaged constituency.

“With citizen and employee expectations continually evolving, government agencies are leveraging new technologies and processes to drive innovation through their digital experiences,” said Dustin Haisler, Chief Strategy and Innovation Officer, Center for Digital Government. “The leading government experiences have retained a human-centric approach to service delivery, incorporating digital equity, accessibility and inclusion into all of their experiences.”

Connecticut was selected for a State Government Experience Award for the development and implementation of Robin, a chatbot designed to provide assistance and guidance as residents interact with state government.

To meet the needs of residents, the BITS digital team began improving digital services in 2019, starting with Business CT and Robin. In the ensuing years, the BITS team has worked with many agencies, including the Departments of Social Services, Housing, Motor Vehicles, Economic Development, Public Health, Higher Education, the Office of the Governor, and more. Robin is slated to be rolled out to additional agencies in coming months.
