We Enable Organizational Transformation

We provide strategic guidance to agency leaders and their IT staffs to ensure they have the appropriate government & nonprofit software portfolio to meet their agency or departmental objectives. This even includes strategies for modernizing legacy applications, developing new applications, integrating digital touch points to back office systems, and enabling stakeholder insights and analytics. We also design and develop those government software applications across a variety of categories: enterprise, cloud, mobile and analytics/BI. Below are examples of recent Headspring projects:

  • State of Texas: We built the Juvenile Case Management System that serves every county in the state. The system was delivered in .Net using Agile methodologies and required both new application development and conversion of four separate component applications: two mainframe applications, one Windows desktop application, and one in
  • State of Texas/Prosecutor System: We built a web-based application that facilitates the business activities of the County Attorney and District Attorney offices across Texas. The new system allowed those in custody to be processed more efficiently, reducing jail holding time from 30 days to 11 days for 7,000 annual cases at a cost of $65/day/case.
  • Michael and Susan Dell Foundation: We designed and implemented a student data interchange platform to standardized information formats while integrating with third-party education software providers to validate compliance with the Ed-Fi standards.
  • Michael and Susan Dell Foundation: We developed a monitoring and tracking for scholarship awards. This enables the team to ensure that the program meets its twin goals of providing funding to scholars and helping scholars actually graduate from college. The system identifies trends in behaviors or risk factors to help scholarship program leaders know when and how to intervene with recipients to help them get back on track.
