As society’s needs evolve, government agencies must rise to meet new customer demands. Across government, only 21% of today’s customer needs are met on the first attempt. Eventual resolution often comes via more expensive channels such as phone calls and in-person visits.
We put the end-user at the center of our process — because if you don’t consider your customer when developing a product or service, you may end up wasting precious funds on something that doesn’t serve its intended purpose.
Adopting a Customer Experience (CX) focus will help your organization create a more satisfying employee experience, reduce frustration for customers, and become better stewards of taxpayer dollars.
To achieve these outcomes, our teams push the boundaries on what is possible for our clients and use CX tools like Customer Personals and Human-Centered Discovery to ensure effective results. For our federal partners, we help you develop the right CX strategy to improve customer satisfaction scores and employee engagement while moving toward Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and Cross-Agency Priority (CAP) Goal compliance.
Brand & Identity
Your organization’s brand is a collective emotional and cognitive perception your customers form based on your customer experience strategy and their interactions with your people, processes, systems, and countless other interactions. To succeed, your brand must evolve to meet your customer’s needs at every touchpoint along their customer journey.
We offer a variety of brand services including:
- Brand Strategy Development
- Logo & Visual Identity Creation
- Brand Training
- Marketing Support
CX Organization Design
Organizational design is both an art and a science. Your organization’s cultural, structural, social, and technical elements serve as the building blocks that determine whether your processes and behaviors will support your organization’s ability to accomplish its mission and realize its vision.
The Clearing’s CX consulting services ensure that your organizational design focuses all available resources on the most important aspects of business and customer needs. Concentrating on the fewest, most critical elements will reveal an organizational structure that creates the space for leaders and employees to better serve customers and provide results.
Every single brand interaction shapes your customer experience. How do you know you’re delivering the experience they want?
The Clearing helps clients create an intentional customer experience (CX) strategy by defining, planning, and codifying an organization-wide customer experience improvement approach that supports your organization’s goals.
CX Transformation & Change
Transforming your customer experience requires leaders to view their business holistically through a customer’s lens and make the incremental changes required to improve.
Our customer experience consultants help organizations transform their values, structures, operations, technology, and culture to mature their CX capabilities by creating an environment that focuses on the customer and delivers a high-quality customer experience at scale.
Data & Research
The Clearing’s data and research consultants use data to understand complex operational systems and resolve observed challenges.
Our methodology analyzes available data to understand the current state of your system and identify the key interventions that will help you achieve your outcomes.
Our team of expert research consultants can also help identify additional sources of data that will unlock additional insights and track key performance indicators to determine if designed interventions are working.
IT modernization efforts often fail when leaders do not fully consider the full range of the human aspects involved in implementation, which range from buy-in and adoption challenges to training and usability issues.

We partner with our clients to offer user-based requirements gathering, IT usability testing, training, communication products, and technology adoption strategies for large-scale technology rollouts.
Our product development approach supports clients tasked with digital transformations, communications integration, and customer-centric technology improvements, helping organizations and government agencies to better react to their changing customer and federal priorities by creating enterprise-wide agility.

- Designing & Implementing a Product Management Process
