We’ve been building public sector websites for nearly a decade.
Over time the E-Government guidelines have evolved, but our approach has remained unchanged: creating solutions that balance the needs of stakeholders and the resources available to project sponsors.
We are experienced in implementing the New Zealand Government Web Standards and Recommendations, from website design and CMS implementation through to HTML/CSS webpage template design and site audits.
In a survey of New Zealand Government websites carried out by the Office for Disability Issues, Motive’s work has been recognised with two citations in the category of Best E-Government website; for Skillnz and Reduce Your Rubbish.
This website could be used as a model for all the government websites. It has everything. It’s eye-catching; has clearly visible labelled links; has clear informative, easily readable text; and gets its message across in as few words as possible.

Our usability services enable you to make informed decisions about how to structure your website.
We can also evaluate your current website and make recommendations on how to fine-tune content presentation and improve information scent.
As an agency moves to using a content management system (CMS), or brings website administration in-house, formalising web maintenance practices becomes more important.
One way that we make things easier, is to create a markup reference: a guide to marking-up content for the web. This provides a bridge between print documents and how they are republished online.
We can also provide website maintenance training: ranging from the basics of HTML markup, through to working with tables and images.
Examples of how we’ve worked with our public sector clients.
Case study: The Reduce Your Rubbish website raises awareness and provides practical tips for households on sustainable waste management practices.
Case study: Motive worked with Capiche to bring the new Ministry of Economic Development (MED) brand online.
Case study: The Science IS website is a professional development tool for New Zealand science teachers. It provides new approaches to science learning and teaching.
