SPIRIT Slovenija - Digitalization of SPIRIT's services

How our solutions accelerated digital transformation of public services for entrepreneurs

An all-in-one digital system that provides a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and easier access to all relevant information and funding. The platform was created and rolled out in cooperation with a public agency.

Project duration jun 2019 - In progress

The Slovenian government’s Business Development Agency (SPIRIT Slovenia, public agency) is a single point of contact for Slovenian entrepreneurs, potential investors, and international companies looking for new business opportunities.

Free of charge, the agency prepares and provides practical information and advice on various business opportunities in Slovenia. It also acts as a major hub for public tenders for entrepreneurship and export.

With so many activities and services, SPIRIT Slovenia was searching for a trusted partner who could digitalize their current efforts and create a sustainable solution going forward.

The challenge: Improve the accessibility of public services

Despite a strong network and supportive environment for entrepreneurs in Slovenia, information is usually granulated between different sources and stakeholders. As a result, it’s hard to trace and access support offered to local and international businesses.

By digitalizing its products and services, SPIRIT Slovenia aimed to improve the accessibility of its current services, enhance communication with its customers, and extend its offering.

The solution: Digitalization and optimization of business processes to improve user experience

We worked on the gradual roll-out of digital products and services with end users in mind.

Before jumping into digitalization, we mapped user journeys and prioritized digitalization efforts with the use of agile methodologies. The goal was to slowly but steadily improve the agency’s services and optimize its business processes.

Based on this initial effort, we created several landing pages and an entrepreneurial portal with electronic forms to cut time spent on red tape. These were all integrated to a single backend for improved content and public tender management.

The result

With the digital transformation of SPIRIT Slovenia’s services, we optimized and digitalized the submission and backoffice processing of public tender aplications. Consequently, this also minimized the error rate and significantly cut time from submission to receiving public funds.
